STUDS – PAPA GREAT DANES
Our first stud dog was REMO, who was a champion Harlequin owned by Bud and Jodie Keim and Michael Chiles of Michaeldane JB Danes. REMO was a magnificent dog and great stud, who is pictured at 186# at two years old. He bred to LOLA.
CH JB MICHAELDANE SPOT REMOVER
We returned to Jodie Keim’s 30 acre ranch in Sonoita Arizona for our second breeding which was to SPY a mantle Champion. SPY was born in Japan and his BIS Mother Secret was a Japanese champ as well as USA national champion. His father AJ, was the #1 Harlequin male in the US. SPY bred to MAYA and they made 9 beautiful mantle Great Dane pups together.
For our next breeding we turned to Juhree Collier of Great Dane Harlequin Romance in Oklahoma. We loved Juhree’s mantle HUMMER a Canadian champion. Since HUMMER was 9 years old and since we hoped for some Harlequin pups, we bred to Hummer’s son. CASSANOVA bred to CLEO.
ROMANCE’S AUGUSTUS CASSANOVA
For our next stud we looked to Tennessee and found a young Harlequin male pup which we bought and raised. Hamilton was very smart and bred to Maisie, Oreo, and Cassie… he is father to LIL BIT and grandpaw to SUGAR BEAR. Ham was co-owned by the Bolton Family in Colorado.
He fathered our first champion with OREO.

We turned again for help with breeding to Juhree Collier of Great Dane Harlequin Romance. She has an amazing champion stud, “SLY.” SLY was a champion at 13 months old and placed second in his category at the National Specialty. SLY was a big ole boy, 190# when he bred to Sophie “LIL BIT.”

Jodie and I started talking about a stud for LIL BIT a year later… and we settled on RADAR… though RADAR was a white DANE, he was a father to 11 champions…
so we gave it a try and bred him to SOPHIE LIL BIT

VALIANT was offered as a breeding partner to OREO in 2015. He has an amazing bloodline including top Euro champions and in 2000 the World Champ “Buzcu”

AENGUS was bred by Juhree Collier and she suggested that we might consider breeding to AENGUS… it was awesome as Clay and Laura Bailey, AENGUS’ owners, traveled here to SW Colorado near the hot springs and we did things the old fashioned way. AENGUS sired 10 healthy pups with SUGAR BEAR including new Champions SNOW WHITE and THOR.
