The man is big and he's a runner and the woman grew up with Danes and seemed very confident and capable of handling him. Melvin responded to both of them. Mostly he responds to any attention given. They know that he needs some training and has a lot of learn but they seemed able and willing to take that on. That's exactly what Melvin needed. He wasn't a "turn key" foster who could just move into any home and act like he's always been there. He needs some guidance and work, but he's got three individuals, two humans and one female canine, who can take up the task.
|Running with Mia. She was a bit nervous at first having such|
a huge shadow who seemed ready to run over her at any time,
but she learned to handle him and became used to his huge presence.
|He got a lot of running time in the pasture and both dogs|
slept well on the trip home.
|This probably my favorite picture of Melvin.|
It captures his sweet and goofy look.
|Mia became comfortable enough around him to indulge in a|
roll in something nasty she found in the pasture.
|He seemed clueless about the point of playing|
ball but was willing to give it a try.
|Having a dog of Melvin's size and energy bounding after you|
could be quite intimidating, but Mia is very fast.
|Melvin actually got to hold the ball, which he never did|
when playing with Theo.
|He will be a great dog as well as a Great Dane. We wish him well.|
