    Just thought I'd show you some piccys of the Danes.
    They're oldies but goodies.

    The white dog is Tilly the black is Nigel

    Oh my gosh Ketzy! Too cute!

    I just checked out that website, there are a few Danes on there in QLD, so I might pursue that route.

    I'll keep you posted to let you know how I get on.

    Just wanted to add that girls smell less than boys. Try to get females if you can, I won't own a male again as my boy stinks/pees on everything.

    I agree that getting 2 dogs will ease separation problems.

    Just my opinion, but I feel differently about getting a grown dog when I have young kids. I would want to feel very confident that the dog was raised well as a puppy. I would hate to think there was trauma in their past that could trigger a bad reaction when playing with my kids. For that reason I would only want a puppy that I'd raised myself. Just my opinion. I've had strays in the past that were beautiful dogs, but they weren't without complications I the beginning. A bug dog can do a lot of damage to a little person.

    I'm not sure if this breed has been suggested or your even considering, but my advice is DON'T get a Staffordshire!

    Awesome dogs & I love them. Have had several & currently have an awesome little guy. But I don't think they would suit your situation. This is why:

    Cons:
    Can jump solid 6ft fences & ignore electric shocks to get through;
    Hate to be left alone & can develop separation anxiety which can drive a dog to death (literally);
    Will probably try to eat chickens or at least chase them for fun;
    LOVE to sleep inside on the couch, bed, rugs, clothes left on floor;
    Very very excitable;
    Anything left outside within reach is fair game & will be destroyed;
    Garden & lawn will look like we have a rabbit problem;
    Wants to be friends with everybody in the neighbourhood;
    Eats a lot of food;
    Prone to skin conditions & stomach issues;
    Can sometimes be territorial/defensive/rough with other dogs.

    Pros:
    Very smart, trainable & obedient when they are not excited;
    Beautiful short coat, easy to keep clean;
    Fantastic with kids, acts like a guardian;
    Extremely lovable & sooky dogs;
    Very athletic & love to run & play.

    Goodluck with your puppy adventures!
