  • 1yr old dane question?

    I am thinking about puchasing a 1yr old male dane. He is the alpha dog at his home now and i believe this is one of the reasons they are getting rid of him. are there any suggestions or things i need to do or be aware of before coming into this. i will be a first time dane owner.
