All About Great Dane Dogs and Puppies

With a big heart to match it’s majestic size, the Great Dane is a loyal, intelligent and trustworthy companion whose size alone is enough to scare off intruders. Nicknamed “the Apollo of Dogs” because of it’s incredible good looks and noble stature, the Great Dane originated in Germany where it is known as “Deutsche Dogge” (German Hound) or German Mastiff. It was originally used to hunt big game (wild boars), as a patrol dog and as a war dog. Great Danes stand 30 inches or more at the shoulder (females slightly less). The short, smooth coat comes in brindle, fawn, blue, black or patches of black with white (Harlequin), and is easily cared for with a good weekly brushing. Friendly and dependable, the Great Dane makes an exceptional family dog. These gentle giants love human attention and are well-suited to country or city living, provided that you have a large house with a yard. Great Danes adore children, but should be supervised in case they inadvertently knock over or step on a toddler. These dogs need special attention and nutrition as they mature to help them reach their full potential. They enjoy a good daily run, but should not be exercised immediately after they eat. Great Danes make exceptional watch dogs.

Great Danes are magnificent dogs, huge in size, elegant and powerful. Often called the “gentle giant” of dog breeds, Great Danes are characteristically friendly dogs, spirited and courageous, dependable, and devoted to their owners.
