Choosing the Right Dog > Does anyone have any info on these breeders?

Everything that Mulder said. Plus, for hubby, at a glance they claim to breed only titled and tested stock, yet few of the dogs have any titles, some have just a CGC and many have nothing. Titles mean not much to me but don't say you are doing something that you aren't. Two of the dogs have only fair hips and I think they are actually breeding them together. The retired k9 they are using for a stud, was born in May of 2008, working in Sept 2009 and now in 2014 is retired? He's 6! All the dogs are described as nice, friendly, happy. That's great but not really what I expect from these pedigrees. Added together it just doesn't ring true.

Fair warning from a Dane lover. Yes they are awesome apartment dogs, DOGS! They can be utterly wretched puppies, and I mean horrible. They are also prone to separation anxiety, and a Dane bent on destruction is a problem. Not to mention that they have a nice deep booming bark. As adults they are the ultimate couch potato pet, but you need to get to adulthood. Most Danes that are surrendered are 12-18 months old.
A Bulldog would likely be a good fit, but look for a good breeder.

Knowing a bit about you I would say Royalair. I do not know of the other kennel but there were a few things on the website that concern me. Hopefully someone else will chime inhug

Wow how things have changed in a year.

The chance that your puppy is either dominant or aggressive are slim to none. Dogs that are actually wired wrong are rare and obvious. And this nonsense about growling and barking at them is just that. If the behavior stopped it was because you freaked the poor thing out. They know we are not dogs.
You want your puppy to stop chewing on you? Give it something else to chew on, and it better be something fun because humans sure are. They squeak and squirm and yelp. Consistency is key.

Dog Health > Please HELP We are DESPERSATE, Wound will NOT Heal on Puppy *PICTURES*

I have a scar on my forehead from a spider bite. Its about 3 inches in diameter. It started out as a small bump, then it was a large bump, then it opened and started oozing greenish stuff, then the whole side of my face and neck swelled. It took weeks to heal and was a nasty mess that required huge amounts of antibiotics and removal of some tissue, and it was caught right away.

I would guess that the same thing could happen with a dog, and a miss by your vet on diagnosis would definitely aggravate things.

Seriously?????

Stop punishing your PUPPY for going to the bathroom. This is all on you.
Pups are not born trained, and depending on where you got him from he probably had no choice but to go where ever he was.
You went out and bought a pup on a whim,I'm guessing and now you are mad at him because you failed to do your homework. Get over it.
Keep your pup on a leash, tethered, attached to you when he is not in his crate. Do not crate him for too long or you will encourage going to the bathroom there. When he first wakes up take him immediately outside and stay there until he has relieved himself then throw a big party, praise, treats, 'Yay! Good potty!' Let him know he has done a spectacular thing.
When you take him back inside keep him tethered or confined to a small enough area where you can keep eyes on him. After play, after eating and every 30 mins or so take him outside. If you see him sniffing take him outside. If he seems uncomfortable or restless take him outside. IF YOU HAVE ANY DOUBTS ABOUT HIM NEEDING TO GO take him outside. If he eludes your watchful eye and messes in the house clean it up and give yourself a smack for letting it happen.
Puppies are WORK! If you cannot get on board with that, return him and get a fish.
