Duke ID# 354853
Meet Duke! He is a 3 year old Great Dane. His owner was moving and was not able to take him. His past owner states that he is good with strangers, cats, and dogs. He was tested at the shelter with a dog and he did become very standoffish, hackles up, and started to growl. After attempting to meet several potential forever friends to go home with, we have found that Duke needs to be the ONLY dog in the home. Duke is housebroken and crate trained. This is a loving, calm, and loyal dog. Unfortunately, Great Danes are prone to a number of health problems. This breed has among the shortest life span of any dog. You must know and love this breed to adopt. A Great Dane is most likely breed to develop bloat. Bloat is a condition that requires immediate attention from your veterinarian. Familiarize yourself with the symptoms of gastric dilatation volvulus (GDV) and contact your vet at once if you suspect your dog might be suffering from this ailment. Duke should rest for about an hour after eating. If you are familiar with this gentle giant then he waits for you at The First State Animal Center and SPCA!
