Best Tricks: He would hold a dog treat on his nose until you told him it was okay to eat it. He would flip it up in the air and catch it.
Arrival Story: I had wanted a Great Dane since I was very young and as soon as I bought my first house, a puppy was next on the list. I saw an ad in the paper and went to look at the puppies. The mother had a litter of 16 and 8 had died. It was basically a situation where I couldn't just leave him there. The people had no idea what they were doing. He was not a well bred dog obviously. Right after his 7th birthday, we discovered he had osteosarcoma (bone cancer) in his front leg. We had to have him put to sleep in April of 2004.
Bio: Alex was quite well known in my neighborhood and at "doggie" events in Edmond and Oklahoma City. Alex and Molly had a brief appearance on a local news show. We were filmed at a dog walk at Lake Hefner and they showed us on the news. He was also the poster boy for the Oklahoma Arts Institute Paws on Parade in 200?. He was on all their advertising posters and the t-shirts that were sold at the event. The main picture on Alex's profile is the picture that was used on the advertising.
