Meet Winter!

A majestic 3-year-old male Great Dane with a heart as big as his stature, currently seeking a loving home in Austin, TX!

Winter's love for life is matched only by his affection for his favorite humans. This gentle giant has a love for stuff-less toys that challenge his intellect without succumbing to destruction.

Winter's playfulness knows no bounds, especially when it comes to fetch – a game he adores. But when the day winds down, Winter transforms into a snuggle enthusiast, finding joy in sharing the bed with his cherished companions.

Impressively trained, Winter responds to a repertoire of commands, including Sit, Stay, Shake, Come, Off, Leave it, Crate, and Place. However, it's essential to note that Winter has displayed resource-guarding behavior since a young age, prompting caution around small children. Winter would be better suited in the company of older children.

He exhibits contentment when left alone in his kennel for short periods, displaying a deep attachment to his safe space.

This loving giant, neutered and up-to-date on vaccinations, is compatible with other dogs, making him an ideal addition to a home with furry companions. However, prospective adopters should have a fenced-in yard to accommodate Winter's need for exercise and exploration.

Understanding the financial commitment of caring for a large breed like Winter is crucial. He requires an environment where his need for love and attention is met.
While Winter has some anxieties, particularly around energetic small children and during car rides, his lovable nature and charm make him a wonderful companion for the right family.

If you're ready to provide Winter with the caring home he deserves, be prepared for a journey that involves lots of love, occasional challenges, and countless heartwarming moments. Winter is currently in Austin, TX, ready to travel to his next loving home, where he can thrive and bring joy to those who welcome him into their hearts!
