Lannie (lay-nee) was turned in to a shelter by her owners. She is an 11 mo. old  female Great Dane. She is a sweet girl but timid at first. Once she gets to know you she is very affectionate and a big kisser. She has been an outside dog all her life, so she is not housebroken yet, and she is not used to living in the house. All this is stressing her out and we expect to see a change in her personality in 3-4 weeks when she starts to settle in and get comfortable. She is the type of dog that needs a set schedule. She is blind in one eye and biletterally deaf. We are not sure how well she sees out of the other eye, but it is enough to get around well. Lannie is on the small side, she is another one of those Southern Teacup Danes. :-) She also seems to have a yellow tinge to her fur which makes her the first lemon Dane we've ever seen. She is an incredibly sweet little girl and will eventually make someone a wonderful, devoted companion. Some of these photos are courtesy of  the wonderful DaneTrain volunteers who helped transport Lannie up here from Texas.

Update 7/22/05 - Lannie graduated to free run of the house about a month ago. She is potty trained and house safe. She no longer chews on things like she used to either. She is crate trained and will go into her crate even when the door is open most times. She does have one bad habit. She has a real taste for the squirt bottles we use for correcting the dogs. I don't know if she chews them up because she is trying to stop us from correcting her when she doesn't listen, or if she just likes the taste and chewability of the plastics they are made out of. We have bottles in every room and if they are on a counter or some other place where she can reach them, she will get them and chew them up. She still tends to be a bit skittish, but that has more to do with her vision than anything else. She gets along just fine, but her vision is not 100%. She is a very sweet affectionate girl who loves pets and cuddling. Lannie is such a happy girl most times, she really can brighten your day.

Update 6/10/06 - Lannie is a very sweet girl but still has some issues. We thought we had her chewing under control, but when we sent her home with a potential adopter for a "test run," she proved us wrong. She is not bad here, but whether it is stress from the change when visiting someone else, or if she is simply testing a new person, she will start chewing again, at least for a while. She can be destructive and has a real taste for plastics, such as remote controls, cell phones, etc. She does not chew on furniture or things like that anymore, just plastic items. Mostly this is when she is left alone or unsupervised. With some home management, and keeping her crated or confined when you are not at home, she will do fine, but she is a special needs dog. She really is very affectionate and loves attention, she generally gets along fine with other dogs. She is healthy, but very small for a Dane. She is a doll outside of her penchant for plastic and will win your heart if you give her a chance. Sadly her one and only shot at adoption so far, was with a couple who refused to confine her or crate her when they were not home.
