Adopt Jupiter & Jenga

Jupes is a loving giant, who like many Great Danes doesn’t realise his size and likes to lean or sit on you! Absolutely loves his family and all the love and attention you can give him. He’s a very vocal dog especially when it comes to outings and walks! (Although he’s not a dog that barks all day, it’s more that he likes to chat!) He is rather bossy over his ‘big’ sister Jenga, but an absolute gentle softie when he’s around young children. He is good with: children and gets along with his sister Jenga only!
Jenga is a very humble and quiet girl, and although she is very friendly and loves scratches and love, she is more of a ‘dog dog’ than a ‘people dog’, cuddles are on her terms! She is great with people and animals and easy to walk. Sadly last year she had a lump removed and was consequently diagnosed with cancer in advanced stage, and we decided not to operate, and just do what we could to make her comfortable going forward, although she is not currently in pain. Due to this and her age, she isn’t as spritely as she was and prefers her exercise to be more of a leisurely stroll than a sprint these days. She is good with dogs and children has become more accepting of feline friends as she has gotten older.
The two need to be homed together as they are fairly dependent on one another.
