So, we found a stray on Saturday night. Its a little Chihuahua and he's uncut....

We have 2 Great Dane's, a female and male.

This little guy is literally humping my female (she's spayed) like every.chance.he.gets.

We try to stop it, but its nearly impossible....this thing is quick and tiny, and for crying out loud i have to bend over to pick it up and stuff.....and I have stepped on it a few times.

Anyway...is it humane to like get a water bottle? We tried to seperate them, but he whined so bad I thought i was going to punt him into my neighbor's yard...seriously.

Who owns these little rat things LOL...uggg...anyway, any suggestions??

It doesn't appear he's easily intimidated.

He's trying to establish dominance within the pack.

It will subside over time.

well, our female gave up with stoping him...which is just sad cause all he does is hump her leg...I am seriously going to post apicture of this.

She has however, started to protect this little guy against our males shinanigans....apparently that makes our male dane the low man on the totom pole. (poor guy)....

Ok, well we have a call into the vet listed on the Rabies tag, so hopefully they will get in contact with the owners....

Hasn't in my mom's house. She has a Great Dane (F) and they adopted a Yorkie (M) and he is like that.....jumping on her leg whenever he can. They have had him a few years now.

Anyway, they just scold him (yell name sternly) and he stops....until his next chance to pounce.

Wow, the little guy has big ambitions, doesn't he?

Love a guy with that kind of confidence.

WE had a dane that was the Alpha of our "pack". When my MIL's westie would come over he would relentlessly hump her, and not in pleasant places, like her face. It never did get better, and he was fixed. He is just an A**. I did the squirtgun thing with him. But honestly it didn't help my MIL had to find other famil to watch him when they traveled until my dane passed. Funny thing is my Lab is not alpha at all and he does NOT ever hump her. I guess he assumes he's dominant over her?

Clearly to him, size does not matter

Are you planning to keep him? Does your town have a humane society? There have been so many lost furbabies this year!

GrievingMommy posted 4/1/2013 22:10 PM

Two words:

Jump hump

While I had thought about it for a little bit, no, I dont think that we will keep him if the owners do not call. I am actually going to be trying to find local Chihuahua rescues so that I know that he wont be killed.

I just dont think I can do this little dog thing. He's cute, hes cuddly, he slept with me on the couch last night.....but....I have stepped on him so many times, he's constantly humping my female, and I dont think that we will be able to offer him the kind of attention that this type of dog really needs.

We do have a Humane Society and I will be posting a 'Found' sign on the webpage.

Jump hump

So true, but yeah, now he just goes after her face and stuff when she lays down. Its not pretty at all.

Undefinabl3 posted 4/2/2013 07:57 AM

This would be my female, no humping pictures, but man the size difference is amazing. She weighs in about 100 punds at the moment

Undefinabl3 posted 4/4/2013 12:25 PM

Update!

So, I know its a little late, but...

The owners came to pick him up!!!

Jasper (the little dog's name) was returned to his very thankful family and let me tell you, it was nice to give him back LOL

Oddly enough, our Female dane has gone through alittle withdraw and she was a bit beside herself for a day.

My son was hardest hit by the situation. I didnt realize how in love he was with this little doggy. Apparently Jasper would lay with him on the couch and watch cartoons and DS thought this was the bee's knees.

He cried when we had to give him back.

Now DH is thinking it would be nice to foster some

Anyway....Thanks for all the suggestions....

Lucky2HaveMe posted 4/4/2013 12:28 PM

So glad the owners found him!

As wonderful as fostering can be, with a DS that gets attached so quickly, it would probably be very traumatic for him over and over and over again.

A Woman Scorned posted 4/4/2013 13:03 PM

that's fantastic news!!

gotta love a happy ending, sounds like Jasper sure does

as an aside, fostering is alot of work, thank-less and heart-breaking a large majority of time.. vet appt's, driving to get them, drop them off, all over the place, dealing with backyard breeders, abuse situations... not to be all debbie downer, and it's rewarding, absolutely - i think it's one of those things easily imagined in a positive, rose coloured glasses way and the reality is nowhere near the fun imaginations

and i also agree with Lucky2hm, i think it would be really hard on your lil guy

and sorry to hear Jasper's GF was sad to see him go, it's hard to see our pets sad! Maybe something that would help your son and your lady dane might be to organize dog park dates? walks? that could be a fun thing for you guys and help everyone get their Jasper fix

still so funny, that picture.. oh jasper!

did his family seem okay? normal enough? were they apologetic when they saw/learned you had a female in the home? i hope this isn't jasper's MO.. to get the ladies...

Funny you asked. While the family seemed nice enough....

The dad was pretty dramatic about the whole thing. Apparently this is 'his' dog and its his buddy.

I was expecting some homely looking guy....nope.

He was like a hard core 6 foot 8ish bald (by choice) biker dude who you would NOT want to meet in a dark alley, but that little dog was his Kryptonite!!

It was a little odd to see, but I am super glad that the family loves Jasper.

And no, he's not one to run away, so it was a bit odd for him to get out of his yard.

They thought it was really cute that he got a girlfriend while he was away. They also had a St. Bernard (which explains why Jasper didnt care about the Dane's size).

A Woman Scorned posted 4/4/2013 13:33 PM

this just gets better and better!!!

so would the

hard core 6 foot 8ish bald (by choice) biker dude who you would NOT want to meet in a dark alley


be up for doggie dates?

so Jasper has a history with the taller ladies, does he? i guess he's a leg man

Look-out ladies, Jump-Hump Jasper's in town and he's looking for love

oh, this story just keeps giving

solus sto posted 4/4/2013 13:37 PM

I'm glad Jasper's back with his family.

And oh! Your Dane is so beautiful. I've always loved Danes.

tushnurse posted 4/4/2013 14:13 PM

So glad to hear you didn't have to hang on to him.
I personally don't care for those little dogs. I too would crush it, by accident.

So your son was crushed. We went through this when we fostered a black lab pup, and in fact tried to purchase him. He ended up going for way more money than we could afford in an auction to raise money for a wildlife group.
We then decided we should get a lab. We ended up getting an awesome female, she is my sons dog. She sleeps with him every night, and he was primarily responsible for her as a pup, with training. She is a natural with Duck Hunting, and outshines the male we wanted in the field in every way, and his owners spent about a gazillion dollars having him trained. LOL

Anyway I digress, as ususal, perhaps a friend for your dane would be nice? Fostering is tough, for the whole family, or was for ours. Not sure I could do it with any regularity. But maybe a rescue? For your son? For your Dane?

The lab kept my dane young and spry for a year or two longer than she would have without her.

We actually have 2 Danes right now. Our male is still puppy at 2 years old, he's 145.

Our female is old at 5 and she has a genetic congenital heart disease that will rob her of to much more life, so maybe after she goes we will find a smaller more managable dog.

I can't do tiny dogs like that right now, maybe when i am 90 or something, but its just to little.

I wanted to take a picture of Jasper next to a pile of our dog's crap cause he couldnt even walk over those, he had to go around. I mean, its a dog when it can poop out something bigger the Jasper was LOL

Jump-Hump Jasper's in town and he's looking for love

This is absolutely priceless....omg.
