Anyone have a great dane on here? If so i have some questions for you.
Ok so a little over a week ago me and my DH rescued a 5+ year old great dane from a very bad home. She is a very sweet girl and really good for not having much human contact in Idk how long. I know that 5+ years is old for a great dane and Im wondering if it's normal at her age to have as much energy as she does. She love's to play and has a stuffed animal dog that she loves to throw around she also has a rope toy that she loves palying tug a war with. I have to take her on about 2 walks a day. One is normaly done inthe morning and the last one is done at night before going to bed. If I don't atleast take her on a nightly walk she is hard to get calm to go to bed and will wake me up through the night wanting out. Even with a nightly walk she will wake up around 4am or 5am to go outside. I guess what I want to know is this normal for her at her age or could she be younger? When you look at her she even looks old. She is fawn with a black mask but most of the black is now white as well as other parts of her. And does yours need to be walked every day like she does? Before we got her her owners had her locked up outside in a small pin with no food or water she didn't even have bowls for them and was sleeping in her own crap. I have had animal my whole life but i have never had a great dane before. I have done reserch on them but it didn't really answer some of my questions.
