Bentley

 

Bentley is a 15 week old puppy who has exhibited some weakness in his hind legs.  His family was worried that he might possibly need expensive medical treatments so they felt he had a better chance to get well with us.

 
We were worried at first that this was true.  But now we are questioning the affects of his vaccinations and other drugs he had received as possible causes for his leg muscle weakness.  There was nothing conclusive in vet medical exams, so we simply began by giving him good nutrition and no more drugs to see if he would respond.  We have put him on a raw diet to give him total nutrition for his body to take in, added glucosamine and condroitin, supervised his play times and time out times, walked him short distances to strengthen his legs, and ........he is steadily improving.  His x-rays showed no obvious problems.  Too many drugs and reactions to vaccinations can cause many different symptoms, his included.  So he is getting drug free, is on a natural diet, is growing like a weed, as Danes do, and seems to be getting stronger.  And 'normal'.....he chews everything in sight, including shoes, checkbooks, feet, nightgowns!  Of course, puppies do this.  :-)
 
He eats like a tiger,  jumps into your lap without regard for where or how he lands, chases the other BIG dogs like he was a big dog himself, and in general is taking the world by storm.  His puppy eyes are mesmerizing and charming.  But his teeth are very sharp little painful needles.  We are recommending he not go to a home with young kids especially for this last reason.  He is trying to learn not to put teeth on everything but he hasn't mastered his schooling yet!  He is dry in his crate, waits to go potty outside, and sleeps all night through, when you insist.  :-)   He will need someone who will keep his training going 24/7 as he is a bold little guy who might like to be in charge if he can get away with it.  He is otherwise healthy, according to his vet exams, but he will need someone to help him build up his strength, which he is doing now, and keep his nutrition of the highest quality to promote a healthy immune system and overall total good health.  We are always available for advice and help and opinions on all that.  :-)  He is a handsome little kid that is going to stand out in a crowd when he gets bigger as is obvious by his pictures.  He does seem to be a good candidate for obedience since he pays attention, and looks you right in the eyes.  He tries to learn and wants to please, and is just ever so happy and waggy about anything and everything.  A wonderful little baby Dane.
