JACK REACHER - OUR LATE PATRIARCH
Ironically, Deep South Danes (DSD) was inspired by the opposite end of the canine spectrum — a 6-pound, 18-year-old Yorkie (Bodey) who passed peacefully in 2012 leaving his human distraught and lonely. Fortunately, professional Dane breeder Karen Kendall Lovett of Woodson Ridge Danes in North Mississippi, stepped in and insisted on filling the gap with a beautiful 8-pound Great Dane pup who grew into a massive, near 200-pound beauty named Jack Reacher (pictured above) — our patriarch — who possessed the same gentle soul and beautiful attitude as his miniature predecessor. The rest is proverbial Great Dane history as the DSD pack began to grow in steps. Fast forward six years and indeed the pack has expanded to four (not counting our retired dogs who now live the good life here on our DSD property). There's our new Harlequin beauty, KC; a massive male Merle named Big John; a 1.5-year-old female Merle named Roxy; and finally, our Piebald masterpiece, Gracie. All of these beauties can be found on our 'Photo Gallery' link (above). At DSD, we’re proud to pass these amazing bloodlines on to a carefully select few. Our advice; do your homework and make sure you understand the amazing potential, the massive size and gentle disposition of these awesome giants. Keep the DSD website bookmarked on your browser. We’ll hook you up. We’re committed to being here for the life of the Dane you select.
