The Great Dane’s massive head is narrow and flat on top. The eyebrows are prominent. The ears drop forward or are cropped to stand erect. The neck is long and strong. The Great Dane’s body is long, muscular and the front legs are straight. The tail is medium in length; it is thick at the base and tapers down to below the hocks.

Great Danes are light to average shedders. The coat is short and sleek and comes in a variety of colors including brindle or fawn, blue, black or harlequin, which has black patches over a white background.

ATTRIBUTES OF THE GREAT DANE – GENTLE GIANTS
The breed has poor longevity; Great Danes live only 6-8 years or less. Great Danes and other giant-breed dogs are susceptible to a condition known as bloat, which involves gas buildup and possible twisting of the stomach.

In the 18th century, Great Danes were prestigious guardians of estates and carriages. They were also popular with the upper class for sport, as few other dogs could bring down a wild boar. These GENTLE GIANTS are now primarily family pets and, despite their size, have become popular among city dwellers who keep them for company and to help guard.
