The Great Dane of Pennsylvania

The Great Dane is also known as the German Mastiff or Danish Hound. The breed is believed to be a mix of the English Mastiff and the Irish Wolfhound. The Great Dane was used to hunt wild boars in Germany and has cropped ears into triangle points to protect them from being bitten or cut.

Great Dane Coat Coloring Brindle, harlequin, mantle, fawn and black are the approved colors of the Great Dane Club of America which sets the rules for the American Kennel Club. Great Danes also have short fur that sheds moderately and is easy to maintain. To keep them shiny, brush or comb their fur at least once a week if not more.

Great Dane Temperament Gentle giants are the most popular for Great Danes. It’s due to their great disposition and their laid back nature. They are normally not aggressive unless their watchdog nature kicks in. They only bark and alert you if strangers are approaching the house or any place that they believe to be “yours” or “theirs”.  Overall as a breed they are relatively quiet. Also, Great Danes like the companionship of their owners.
