We're gonna get a Great Dane - update with pics
We passed the application process and will be getting a Great Dane from a rescue group !! We have a dog already so we have to wait for a boy to come into the rescue that they think will be a good match for our girl but I'm still excited. I've always wanted a big dog.

That's so cool. I love Great Danes. I've never had one, but they seem like such gentle giants. I think you should name him Tiny. Send pictures!

Congratulations!!! That is so wonderful!! We are big dog people too. I think they are fantastic and Great Danes are gentle giants. I hope a boy becomes available for you soon.

I vote for the name Moose. That's what a neighbor of ours said our German Shepherd, Duke looked like. It was true too, he was a big beautiful boy.

Congratulations! I LOVE big dogs! My lab Bentley was best friends with a Great Dane named Rufus in his puppy training class. They were so cute together. They were the same age but Bentley could walk under Rufus he was so much taller!

I do like big dogs, but I have a tiny dog yard. Our neighbor however has two Great Danes! Congratulations!

When asking questions ALWAYS post the name and a link for the pattern if you have it.

Congrats!! I couldn't help but smile and remember the first time I caught a glimpse of a Great Dane. I was six years old and thrilled that my neighbors across the street had gotten a pony

Bailsmom - Moose is exactly what the hubby wants to name him ! I really can't name a dog until we have him and can see his personality. Originally he wanted to name it Dozer or Diesel.

The frustrating part is waiting for one to come into the rescue. The only males they have right now are not suitable to our lifestyle. We need a boy who wants a playmate and buddy.
