I am proud to annouce the newest family member.. Ruger...He is a 10 week old Merlequin out of Remmington Danes. Father is Allar Di Stella Ardens (AKA The Boss) Ukraine Import and Mom is Remmingtons Polar Lights (Aroura) Full Euro Polish/Hungarian.
He is at 37 pounds as of today! =)
I know his protein level needs to stay between 21 and 25%, so can someone help me with a good food? Ive looked but I dont think hard enough because the Large Breed puppy foods I am finding are much higher levels of protein... Does he need to be on a puppy food, or go to an adult food with the lower protein levels??

I am feeding my puppy Eagle Pack Large and Giant Breed Puppy Food because it has all the right protein and fat levels needed for a Dane puppy.

Would be best not to feed puppy food.. it encourages fast growth and you don't want that for a Dane. Any breeder would tell you the same... There are many different brands but personally I feed Canidae Large Breed Adult dry food and both my dogs and I love it.
