Puppies!
  
Welcome to Gulf Coast Great Danes!!!
 
 

We are Certified Breeders through the Puppy Project by the Veterinary Council for Breeder Stewardship. 

All of our Danes are raised with love and are very socialized with other dogs, big and small as well as children. They are all considered part of the family.  We breed to improve the overall quality and conformation of the breed, as well as for health, temperament, and longevity. 
 
Puppies are kept indoors from the time they are born until they enter your arms. When they are old enough, we take them outdoors to run around and discover different surroundings. They receive tons of love and socialization throughout their stay here. We start potty training at the age of 5 weeks old. However, with any puppy it is all about CONSISTENCY in the home to be able to train them properly.  They are current on their vaccinations, vet checked by our licensed veterinarian, Dr. Hillman. Wormer is given every 2 weeks until they leave us. All puppies come with shot records, health certificate, microchipped, dew claws removed, AKC registration papers (sometimes they have to be mailed to you), a small bag of Victor Dog Food, toys, matching leash and collar, TrackR Tag (GPS tag for your puppy),  treats, 5x7 baby puppy picture, 8 year genetic health guarantee (as long as the puppy is being kept on NuVet Supplements), NuVet samples and information pamphlets, as well as a puppy packet loaded with information on how to care for your new family member.

Why do we offer an 8 year genetic health guarantee?
We offer this because we back our puppies up 100%.  If one of them were to have a genetic defect we would replace your puppy, that is my duty as a breeder.  There isn't any way to test for genetic defects unfortunately, but we strive to produce the healthiest puppies we can by knowing their background and doing the health testing that is available to us. 
 
We offer lifetime breeder support to anyone who purchases one of our puppies. If you have ANY questions or concerns, please do not hesitate to call us and we will be glad to help.
 
Please feel free to look around our site. If you have any questions don't hesitate to contact us and we will answer them as soon as possible!

A letter to puppy buyers.....

Dear future and present puppy buyers,
       I wanted to write this to let everyone know a little bit about me and my program.  Other than just the website description.  I am a breeder who TRULY cares about bettering the breed, the puppies we produce, their well being as well as yours, and my dogs that are here with me.  I back my puppies up 100% and am here to support you with any questions or concerns, no matter how big or how small.  I want to be there to help whether it is for guidance about food or something serious that happened.  When we offer "lifetime breeder support", I sincerely mean ... lifetime.  
     I whelp these puppies and am there every step as they grow.  I revive them if they are born not breathing, supplement them when mom has a large litter, and lose endless amounts of sleep to insure that the babies are safe in the future weeks against accidents.  Accidents such as mom stepping on them, among other things.  I watch them as they crawl around, blind and deaf at first, to when they start sitting up and walking.  Their eyes and ears start to open around 10-18 days and I get to see them grow and interact even more with each other, becoming little puppies.  The process they go through from the time they are born until the time they leave never ceases to amaze me.  
    No matter how much sleep I lose, or how much work they can be, I will always love what I do.  When I start the weaning process and they are served mush (softened kibble), oh what a mess it can be. Some will chow down, and others aren't quite sure what to do, but quickly get the hang of it.  As they start to eat more and more, I do my best to make sure they are getting all the nutrients they need to grow properly and be healthy.
    We deworm them every two weeks, and any breeder knows how wormer days can go. But with all the mess that comes with these precious fur balls, it still makes it all worth it to me.  Especially when they find the perfect homes and I see how well they are taken care of, how much they are spoiled, and how much of an impact they have on their family's lives.  Nothing brings more joy to my heart.
    If you aren't willing to stay in touch with me to periodically let me know how your puppy is doing, then I am not the breeder you should buy from.  I like to know that all of the babies are healthy, happy, and doing well.  From the time they are born to even after they leave they always take a piece of my heart with them.  I make the initiative to learn and know each of their personalities as they develop.  When puppies are picked out before 8 weeks of age, I do my best to update with weekly pictures and reports on them.  Sometimes I tend to lose track of time because when they hit 4-5 weeks it becomes WAY more busy than usual.  
   But overall, I CARE, I'm ALWAYS here, these babies are my heart, breeding is my passion, and I LOVE what I do and what we stand for.
