In fact, they are fondly known as gentle giants.
Giant, tall, and massive … the Great Dane usually comes first to mind when you think of a dog with these characteristics.
The American Kennel Club describes the Great Dane as having a combination of a “regal, dignified, strong, and elegant appearance. Its body is well-formed, smooth, and muscled. It doesn’t appear clumsy when it walks; the Great Dane’s gait is graceful, thanks to its proportionately long legs. Its neck is long and graceful, and on top of it is a massive head, which is long and narrow.” Their paws are massive and as big as a man’s hand!
The Great Dane has been popularly known as a house companion, but you would be surprised to find out that it was originally bred to be a hunting and working dog.

Around the 16th to the 17th century, they became companions to their noble owners who hunted bear, boar, and deer.

It is essential, however, to socialize the Great Dane while it is still young. Doing this early on will train it not to react to strangers and to new environments negatively. Even though it has a peaceful demeanor, it will not hesitate to keep its guard up and defend its pack.
Despite its large build, the Great Dane is susceptible to a lot of health conditions. Surprisingly, they are one of the dog breeds that have the shortest lifespan. The average lifespan of the Great Dane is only 7 years, while other dogs can live up to 15 years. Among the health conditions, you need to watch out for is wobbler syndrome and bloat, which can be fatal for your Great Dane if not attended to immediately.
Because of its size, you need to provide it with ample space to move around. This dog is not ideal for small living spaces, such as apartments, where it does not have much room to stretch out its legs. You may find yourself picking over things that have fallen because your Great Dane keeps on knocking them over with its tail.
The Great Dane is statuesque and is considered as a luxury dog breed. Indeed, this dog never fails to inspire awe from anyone who is fortunate enough to see one!
