BING

BING is our Christmas miracle puppy.  He was about to be thrown out onto a country road when a Good Samaritan stopped it.  She took him home and called our Dane Angel Network, thankfully.

 
Bing has a tendency to do some 'singing' or howling softly in his crate when he is asking to come out.  :-)  Hence the name Bing at Christmas time.  We believe him to be 11 or 12 weeks of age.  It is our guess that he was being thrown out because his ankles were so loose that they were way too angled to the sides, thereby making him look almost crippled.  He was also flat footed with a dull coat, denoting lack of nutrition, which could have caused the angulation in his ankles, as the vet guessed.  Or it could have been caused by too much play on slick tile or slippery floors.  However, in a day and a half of supervised play, time outs in his crate, high quality nutrition, and carpet and grass to walk on, his ankles resumed a normal straightness.  With good nutrition, he has come up on his toes now, having lost the flat duckfootedness.  Having seen what he looked like when he first came in, it surely does seem like a miracle.
 
Dane puppies grow at an accelerated rate, faster than most other breeds and are strong and delicate at the same time.  They can develop leg and bone problems from the wrong foods, from too many vaccinations or drugs, from too much rough play or running on concrete or slick surfaces, etc.  They must be supervised, guided, and taught all day long in order to grow to their grand potential.  And they must not be crated all day long either, which can be another cause for leg/ankle and growth problems.
 
With this little guy's vetting and our observations, we believe he will grow to his fullest potential now that he is on a healthy regimen.  He is affectionate and bold, as well as responsive and willing.  He comes for his name and for a whistle.  He walks so closely to you that you can trip over him!  So, we feel he will make an excellent candidate for Obedience training and fun.  He eats and drinks well, and otherwise appears healthy in spirit and body and is going to make the right home a very exciting new addition to the family!
This boy has come a long way in a few weeks.  His legs and ankles are stronger and are not swaying any more.  He has been carefully supervised so that his ankles could get stronger on their own.  Good nutrition, exercise, time out in his crate when needed, play time, and gobs of love have helped him come back. He walks, runs, zooms, snuggles on the couch (on your lap usually), comes when he is called every time, loves to eat, loves people, loves other dogs, and is good with the resident cat, though you can read his mind, as he wishes she would run from him so he might get a little play.  :-)

FEB 2007 update

 
To know him is to fall immediately in love with him.  He can be quiet, or rowdy.  And he is affectionate and wants to please.  He is doing well in house training, sleeps all night in his crate, goes into it willingly, and is becoming a handsome, very kissy and likable young kid.  Continuing supervision, making sure he does not have excess exercise or trauma to his legs for a while, and keeping him off slick flooring, will give him a chance to continue to get stronger and become the big boy he already thinks he is.  :-)
