Christy - Paw Crusader Pack Leader

Christy Jaeger, The Paw Crusaders Pack Leader, grew up in Australia sharing life with guinea pigs, a pet goat, horses and Weimaraners. Moving to America, she studied Veterinary science but switched to a Family Nurse Practitioner program to give her more time with her Great Dane’s. Dog show competition, experiencing life with her Great Dane Family, and engaging in canine research inspired Christy to want to help others quickly access resources and products in a centralized database to promote dog care excellence and strengthen the human/canine bond.

Harley "Dog Boss"

Harley the Harlequin, The Paw Crusaders Great Dane protagonist, nicknamed "Dog Boss" by mom Christy, takes his boss role very seriously. Mostly deferring to Christy's requests, Harley leads the other Paw Crusaders with a fair, but notably superior attitude, requiring order and favoritism at all times. Used to being spoiled by Christy, the result of having spent more time with her, he's used to being the center of attention because he's so strikingly handsome and smart.  Harley is always noticed first by strangers, and quick to manage any situation to his advantage, including how to get the most affection or food.
