Great Dane Information
People know a Great Dane when they see one. Towering over other dogs, the Great Dane is an elegant, lean dog with a gentle personality. Their strong large, bodies are surprisingly agile, and their personality is dignified and spirited.
The Great Dane is an old breed with a history dating back at least 400 years. At the time, boars were a major food source. They were a savage, swift animal to capture, so Europeans bred a superdog – the Great Dane – to hunt them. You would never know they had such violent origins from their docile, sweet personality today. They are exceptional with children and other dogs.
