Rescue Me ID: 17-10-01-00073Harley (male)

Great Dane Mix    Age: Adult

Compatibility: Good w/ Most Dogs, Not Good w/ Cats, Good w/ Kids and Adults 
Personality: High Energy, Somewhat Dominant 
Health: Neutered, Vaccinations Current 

    Harley will be 6 years old on 1/3/2018 and he is a Labrador Retriever prossibly mixed with a Great Dane (Labradane) - neutered big boy.. weighs 85 pounds but 90 to 95 pounds would be a healthier weight for him. When Harley was first rescued, we were told he was a pure breed Labrador and the family that owned him supposedly had AKC paperwork for him which we didn't see. However, we think he may have something else in the mix because of his size and certain aspects of his personality and temperament. Harley has been in foster care in this area for about two months now and has really learned how to share with the 5 other dogs. He is ... (Read More)learning how to play also! However, Harley would likely do best as an 'only dog' because he has some resource guarding around other dogs and is sometimes jealous when other dogs get attention. He'd rather be the star of the show and dominate his human's affection and attention. Harley is not a resource guarder with humans and you can take things away from him and he doesn't guard his food bowl. If there is another dog in the house, Harley's access to toys and food when the other dog was present would have to be carefully monitored and he would have to be blocked out of the kitchen during meal prep and eating times. His resource guarding is random and not all of the time but it happens enough that his kitchen time needs to be limited/monitored if there is another dog in the house. If there is no other dog then there shouldn't be any problems. Harley is NOT GOOD WITH CATS. Harley has been around children as young as 3 but not for an extended period (only a couple of days) and he did fine. However, we feel he would be best in a home with older children (12+) because of his resource guarding and he will 'mouth' still, especially when you are trying to put his harness or leash on or when you want him to move and he doesn't want to move. He is famous for doing the 'flop' when he doesn't want to do what you want him to do. I will not place him with a family that will be adding children in the future because he has already paid the 'baby price'. Harley is fully house and crate trained. He knows several basic commands and walks decently on the leash when there are no other dogs on the walk. If there are other dogs, he will pull more because he wants to 'compete' with the other dog. He is not leash reactive when other dogs are around but he will try to chase critters (squirrels, rabbits, deer) so you have to be alert and watch for these things so you can see them before he does. He is a STRONG boy and will require an experienced handler on walks. Harley is a wee bit of a spoiled boy. He learned early in life that he could do as he pleased so we are working on behavior modification and he's picking things up fast. He does try to test boundaries (like counter surfing or chewing on things to get attention) so he will need firm leadership and not a permissive owner. He will try to get away with as much as possible. Harley's recall is so-so and he could not be off leash at this time. He will need a physical fenced yard or to be on a leash when outside at least until he bonds with his new people and they work on recall with him. Harley would do best in a stand-alone home as he will bark when he hears things. He would especially love a home with a pool :) or on water where he could go for a swim daily. He LOVES to swim. Harley needs an active, physically fit family willing to walk/run him at least twice a day. He's getting about 4 to 5 miles a day right now. A family with a runner would be even better Up to date on vaccinations (combo, rabies, bordatella, Lyme), micro-chipped and neutered. Harley is also heart worm negative. We are looking to place Harley within a 3 hour radius of Washington, DC but will consider other areas if we have a volunteer available to do a home check. Application form: http://www.emailmeform.com/builder/form/E53LXc4bsw6r997fuK4 We have an application process, home visit, vet reference check and if close enough, a 2 week trial period before proceeding with an adoption if the trial period is successful.

PIease Read Before Adopting a Great Dane in Maryland
    Great Dane Dogs can make good pets in Maryland if they match your IifestyIe. The Great Dane is an enormous, but extremely gentle breed often referred to as the Gentle Giant. Great Danes are kind, loyal, and sociable. They need to be around people. Great Danes are gentle, devoted, and wonderful with children, but should be supervised with little ones because of their large size. Great Danes should be well trained as puppies. Great Danes can live in an apartment with enough daily exercise but do best with a large yard.

    The Great Dane is the tallest dog in the world. Great Danes are depicted in the wall art of Gislev Church in Denmark, dating back to the early 1500's. Scooby Doo is a Great Dane. Some Great Danes are completely blue. A Great Dane named Gibson was put in the Guinness Book of World Records as the World's Tallest Dog in 2004.
