In late April, we purchased a mantle Great Dane from Johnny E. in Fresh Meadows, NY. He could no longer keep the dog, and we found him on line. Johnny told us that he would mail us his papers. To date, no papers have been received. We keep calling him, but he keeps giving us the run-around. He originally told us that he was from a breeder in Kentucky, that he dealt with someone named Linda, and he was born in August, 2011. He said that one of his ancestors was "Goliath", which is the name he also gave the dog. I believe that he also said that his father was a Harlequin. We have changed our dog's name to Duncan. He is absolutely wonderful. We are desperate to find out where he came from, what exact date he was born, and want to get his papers. If anyone out there knows ANYTHING about a litter with mantles born in August, 2011, with one shipped to NY, Please, please, let me know. We are desperate for answers. Thanks!! Linda W.
