Brody is blue Great Dane just around a year old; we were told he was born sometime in June 2019. He is a big bundle of playful puppy joy. Brody was surrendered to a rural Indiana shelter along with his litter mate. It is obvious that he was very sheltered in his early life because everything is new and either exciting or scary. Yet Brody is very curious and very smart. He is a quick learner. When he sees something he is not sure of he will stop and just stare at it. If it is something “scary” he will run to your side and lean on your for support and will calm down when you touch him and tell him it’s okay. He has been working on basic commands and already mastered ‘sit”.
Brody has never been an only dog and would do better in a home with another dog to continue to learn from and play with. He loves to go on walks with his foster siblings and prefers to walk together, as opposed to alone- confidence in numbers you could say. Since he is a pup still, Brody is learning toys and how to share them. He tends to be possessive of them with the other dogs but not towards a human. He shows no signs of food aggression; however he is fed separately from the other dogs.
Brody rides great in the car and is eager to climb in. He has gone hiking and did great and loved the hours spent in the woods. He also loves city life and its comfy couches or chairs but is learning that is not allowed. However, he will try and sneak up there the minute you are not watching him.
