Looking for a large puppy who will grow to be no smaller than 65 lbs

Hello,

I'm looking for a large puppy to train as a service dog for my aunt and was wondering if anyone around here might have what i'm looking for. the dog has to be big and strong because of my aunts condition she is in a wheel chair and my 75 year old grandmother needs help pulling my aunt's chair around. we are located in CT. if you think you have the perfect dog for us please respond here or email me at [email protected]

If i were you i would look for a great dane or great dane lab cross. They have short hair, are big, and mellow. They don't need much grooming.

The only issue with a great dane is they have very short life spans. about 7 years

Giant Maso Mastiffs are a good breed and they are usually very loveable and gentle for their size. http://www.dogbreedinfo.com/images19...MollyPuppy.jpg

Ya we are looking at all of the above except a great Dane unless its a mix. the problem is allot of the rescues around here all have their dogs fostered out south and we really want to see the puppy before we get it to make sure that it will be a good fit.

if they are being fostered they bring them to the shelter or you can go to the foster home to meet them.

If possible though i would look for one that is already trained to be a service dog, it is so hard to train them while needing them.

If the main thing you need is help pulling the wheel chair you don't need to have a gigantic dog to do it. Look into a Shepherd/Husky type or a Bernese Mountain Dog which were bred to pull milk carts. Bouviers (sp?) are smart dogs and pull just fine I have also heard great things about Pitties although most people do not trust the breed :\ If you dont want something that needs hours of grooming look into breeds like Labs, which are fairly common.
The larger the dog the greater chance you will have joint problems later on, especially if it is having to pull a wheel chair for long periods or too often. A smaller dogs is easier to care for, cheaper to feed, and usually live longer.

I wish you luck! Hope this helped
