eet Our own deaf
Dane  Ambassador



Hi all,
This is Barbara. I recently had to put Bo to sleep. He had made it a few months past has 12th birthday before his back legs gave out. Bo was a super wonderful loving and lovable companion- your description of him was right on- I so miss him! Now I am ready for a new Dane and I am interested in Tika. Like Bo, you describe her as wanting her own person to love- which I would like. I would come from (NorCal) again. Do you think that Tika is ready for a road trip and new home? I look forward to hearing back from you- thanks and thanks for my boy Bo.

Bo is an delightful dog who desperately wants a home of his own. He is older, but very lively and active. Bo can hear and see just fine, but he has a genetic condition that lead to his legs being a little deformed. It doesn't affect him at all really, but he looks a little different. His legs are shorter than   normal and the front legs are bowed a bit. As I say, it does not affect him at all though and he is a very healthy dog overall.

Update 8/21/07 - Bo is a sweet, sweet boy who really does not show his age at all. You would never know he was as old as he is. He runs and plays with all the other dogs and has no trouble keeping up with them. Bo is very people oriented and wants a special person of his own, he would prefer to be with people than with other dogs and follows me around all the time. When I am not in his area he stands at the fence and watches me. When I am working on the other side of the fence from him he will whine wanting me to come get him. He is fine off leash out here in the boonies, but in town he is a runner and will take off if given any chance. He is otherwise well behaved and trained. He is very anxious to please and that makes him very easy to train as well as very compliant and obedient. He is a dominant dog and can have issues with other dominant dogs, especially intact males. He would be best as an only dog or with a submissive female, though he can get along with other males. It's not that he is bad with other dogs, he currently lives with 8 other Danes, including several males who have had dog aggression issue in their past. As I sit typing this, Bo is standing at the back fence watching me through the back windows, giving me that please come get me look. Someone will get an excellent companion in Bo. He will give tons of love and make you the center of his world. Please, please do not pass this sweet guy over just because of his age. He is showing no signs of his age at this point and is as strong and robust as dogs half his age. And he has a lot of love to give.
