Dog Profile


Ref: 089/17

5 years 1 months (Approx.)

Dog · Great Dane X · Black



Silas is a very friendly big boy. He loves people, including children and gets on fine with other dogs. He has also lived with cats previously. He travels well by car as long as he can see what's going on.


Due to a change of circumstances Silas's previous owners have very reluctantly had to present him and his close buddy Jack the Jack Russel Terrier for re-homing.

Re-homing Criteria

We would really like to re-home Silas with his pal Jack (the JRT) as he tends to stress when separated from him. Someone experienced in this large breed would be ideal.

Homefinder Questionnaire

If you'd like to help rehome Silas simply complete the Homefinder Questionnaire to get started.
