Gray was not supposed to live past four months of age. He was one of the two smallest puppies in a litter of Great Danes. Gray could not walk and was not expected to do well at all. At 3 months, Penn told us they expected him to decline rapidly and that euthanasia would be the best option In that situation. He was born with a disorder that caused his little body to grow deformed and this also caused him to stay small. Careless backyard breeding caused him to be like this, but he decided that NOTHING, not anyone’s opinions and not even his deformed body would stop him from being a dog. At 4 months, Gray began walking and nothing could stop him. He needed a home. No one was quite right to even foster such a special dog with his special needs. When we took Gray home, he did have special needs. He sometimes could not get himself off of the ground without assistance. He would pee on dog beds and get stuck. He was uncomfortable being carried but couldn’t do stairs on his own, so we had to carry him in very certain ways to get him outside to potty train. Now he can do almost anything, stand up on his own on slippery floors, climb short flights of stairs, climb on couches/into cars on his own, and leap for joy with all four feet off the ground. Gray ‘s perseverance inspires me. I hope it inspires you too. #teamgraydane #gotchaday Trivia💙💙💙 What was Gray’s first full name when he was with the litter?
