When there were just 2 of us left in the litter my breeder gave a man a 2 for 1 special. Unfortunately he did not want 2 Dane pups so he gave me to a friend. Life was great for a couple of days but then I got sick and with my new owners working all the time, they felt it was best that I come to Harlequin Haven where I could get 24 hour a day care.

I have Hypertrophic Osteodystrophy better known as H.O.D. and am in severe pain and when I arrived last night I was running a high temperature. Thankfully I was given some medicine and my temperature is back to normal and hopefully the pain eases up as well.
Update 11/10: Good News!!! I am already feeling better!! I am up walking around and I even go outside to potty without any help!! Hopefully I do not have a relapse.  Check out my new picture below!!
Update 11/26: I am feeling wonderful!! I have not had any relapse and life is great!!! I even had a spa day yesterday and got all cleaned up than I went outside to get my picture taken and of course to play!!! Check out my new pictures below!!
Update 11/27: OH MY ANOTHER GREAT DAY!! I am NOW ready for adoption!!! I am a very sweet and loving young man!! I want a forever home that will last forever and love me as much as I will love them!! Also, check out my new picture below, I was playing in the snow today!!!
Update 11/29: My breeder Kristi England found me on the website and called the rescue today to tell them I could not have H.O.D. because I was not old enough and that I had to be 18 months old before I could get it!! When Grandma asked her who told her that and asked if it was a Veterinarian and my breeder said yes. Grandma then told her that the vet did not know what he/she was talking about!!! Grandma told her that YES I did have it and was treated and had gotten over it!! Then the breeder started telling Grandma all about the day I was purchased and how the story is not accurate etc. etc. The breeder kept saying that I was ruining her name and that was when Grandma got upset!! Grandma told her that she needed to stop breeding and that I was a very poorly bred Dane and that a quality bred Dane should NOT be 46 pounds at 7 months old! The breeder did not want to hear that so she hung up on Grandma!!! Grandma told me not to worry that although my breeder is a backyard breeder that I am still sweet and loving and will find a wonderful home!!

Update 12/9: Wow who would have thought I would still be at the rescue!!! Only 1 person has even asked about me!!! I am healthy and not having any relapses as long as you take proper care of me! I am housetrained and cute as a button! I sure hope I get a forever home in 2019!!

Please can you spare a few dollars to help the Rescue continue to help me and other Danes like me? It would be greatly appreciated. Without the Rescue who knows where we would have ended up!!
Thanks, Valentin
