Black Great Dane

No cropped ears!  If I lived in another country other than America I would see many dogs that don't have all the alterations I am custom to seeing and making.  I love making Great Danes I don't know what it is.. size majestic look. I have seen many in person.. actually lived downstairs from one.. Clayton was his name. He was a grey brindle marked dog that had ears in the process of standing up.. what that meant is he had surgery to remove part and then had them wrapped in a very uncomfortable looking way. Was not my choice to do this to Clayton. I observed Clayton grow up from puppyhood. A very long process to adulthood for a large breed like this. He was so so gentle and could walk his small apartment without incident.   Here is a unaltered Dane that in some ways reminds me of my own dog Onyx. Jury is still out on what Onyx is..  My Dane in this photo has chewed a sofa a bit but it was a old sofa.. they make wonderful covers for those now days.

  2. Hello Lucy,
    This miniature, sitting so calm on the sofa chewing it up, just warms my heart. He is perfect in every detail and you have captured such a real and honest moment. Incredible artwork.
    Big hug,
