Before Pictures & My Story Below
Almost 5 years ago I was found roaming the busy streets of Columbus and taken to the Franklin County Animal Shelter. When I arrived at the shelter I was scanned and found to have a microchip. The microchip was registered with the Hunte Corporation. When the animal shelter called the Hunte Corporation they were told I was sold to Petland on Hamilton Road in Columbus. They then contacted Petland who gave them the name of the woman that purchased me. When the shelter contacted her she told them she did not want me back and she had given me to someone but did not know them and had no way to contact them. I was not licensed and I was scared to death at the shelter, when my stray time was up HHGDR was contacted to come for me. I was not at the rescue long when a family adopted me. I thought I had my forever home but unfortunately I was wrong!
After 4.5 years I was returned to the rescue! My dad told the rescue I was dog and human aggressive. I am being evaluated now but so far the rescue has not found I have any issues with aggression except I do HATE needles!! They are however very concerned with the fact that I weigh over 170 pounds!! I am a small boy and should only weigh 110 pounds! Okay so I am obese! I am going out with 9 other dogs and having a great time playing until I can no longer play because I am exhausted. I am waiting for the results of a thyroid test and if that is negative I guess I will be on a very, very LONG diet!!
Update March 27: Well I got weighted
and I now weigh 154 pounds!! In 2 weeks I lost 16 pounds!!! Yes I still
have a long ways to go but at least I am headed in the right direction!!
Update June 17: Needless to say I never lost all the weight I needed to lose although I still am sorta dieting I have decided that some dogs just are meant to be stocky just like people! Besides I am handsome just the way I am!! Today I agreed to let Grandma take some new pictures of me and you will see that I am very handsome!! Plus the other day I heard someone say they were interested in one of the other Danes just because of his eyes they said something about the eyes spoke to them!! Now I do not understand how the eyes talk but I am giving it my best shot!! Do my eyes speak to you????
