Eve hasn’t grown enough Dane features yet for most people on the street to recognize what type of dog she is. 75% of the time, people still say, “What a cute black lab puppy.” The one thing that gets people to recognize that something is different about her are the monster-size paws that are stuck on the end of her feet. These pictures won’t do them justice, but trust me when I say that it will probably take a year before her body grows into these mammoth paws.
They say that the paws are an indicator of how much the pup will actually grow. A few other Dane owners have mentioned that Eve’s paws seem big even for a Dane, so we will see if she reaches her full female Dane potential. Either way, I’m a bit scared of the damage that those Grizzy Bear hands will do when she is tall enough to reach things that break. I’m guessing that a paw across the face may be enough to knock out some teeth.
