We got Jasper from a Great Dane rescue group called Dames for Danes. His right ear, as you can tell, is only half there. :( His owner who gave him up said he was born that way, but his foster mom fears someone tried to crop his ears themselves and it didn't go as planned. I like it...I think it gives him character!
We traveled about an hour and a half to pick him up and he did extremely well on the car ride home. We stopped at PetSmart which did NOT turn into a cheap trip!!! I bought him a $60 bed that he had no interest in when we got home. He was content with just being on the floor! And that's pretty much what made him happy for the night!
We start obedience classes tonight...we don't wanna waste any time :) He isn't hyper or bouncing off the walls...we just want to master sit, stay, and all that good stuff. Wish us luck!
