- Herc is standoffish at first and shows some fear of strangers. But
once he gets to know you he is the sweetest boy. He adores cuddles and
attention. He is a big Dane, tall but on the lean side.
got Herc from a shelter. They had tried to place him once
unsuccessfully. We do not know what the problem was or any history on
him. We initially had potty training problems here, but eventually he
learned. We also had to crate train him as he was not crate trained. We
believe he was probably raised outside and was never potty trained in
the first place. We also placed Herc unsuccessfully. The issue this
time was his potty training. He was left alone too long each day and
because they had no fenced yard, he was pottied on leash. He does not
like to potty on leash, and that combined with how long he was left
alone, and the fact that he was still adjusting to his new home, caused
some potty issues that his new owners could not deal with.
Since his return, he has been very good. We crate him at night and he
is fine, and we make sure he gets to go out in the yard at least every
4 hours or so. This approach has eliminated his potty problems here and
we believe will work in his new home. Obviously this means that at this
point he can not got to a home where the owners work all day, he simply
is not ready to hold it that long yet. This will likely change as his
training continues, but for now he needs a home where someone is home
most of the time.
He is a big impressive Dane, and a real love bug. He will make someone very happy. Are you that someone?
