    She is. She is massive. Fifteen kilos at twelve weeks! I'd say she is about the size of a beagle, maybe larger.

    Her ears have started going funny, not sure if it's teething, I don't know if she is old enough. She's fourteen weeks.

    She's huge! She would be starting to teeth now

    You're not feeding her puppy food are you though?

    She is on Eukanuba Large breed Puppy.

    I would say she is about the size of a large male Beagle.

    Its easy for me to say over the internet. But I wouldn't.

    Im not sure if you know, but Great Danes especially are prone to HOD (Hypertrophic Osteodystrophy). It occurs with rapid bone growth from between 12 weeks and 7 months old if the puppy has too much protein and/or calcium in their diet. Their knee joints start off swollen and are warm, and I don't want to freak you out, but her knees seem unusually knobbly.
    I had a look at what you're feeding her, and it has 26% protein, and the recommended amount for Danes is 23%.

    Give me a second I'll find some photos and a good website.

    I asked specifically on the Dane thread on DOL, Eukanuba Large Breed Puppy was the diet recommended by breeders and owners alike. I've never seen 23% protein recommended in my travels, researching what food to give her. What I've seen is 26%. She's due for a check up, vaccinations and microchipping in a few days time so I'll get the vet to check out her legs. They aren't ever hot, they're not causing her any trouble. They aren't swollen and many dane pups I've seen have she same amount of knobblyness. She's all ribs and knuckles atm, sucking up all the food she gets.

    ETA

    Sierra, who is that adorable new black min pin in your siggy?!
