The Great Dane (18th Cent. French: Grand Danois), also known as German Mastiff or Danish Hound , is a breed of domestic dog (Canis lupus familiaris) known for its giant size. The Great Dane is one of the world's tallest dog breeds; the current world record holder, measuring from paw to shoulder; from head to tail, is George. Also, on a sidenote, great danes were orginally bred to hunt deer.

Eager-to-please Great Danes are friendly, easygoing, and gentle with children in the family as long as they are treated with kindness.
They will bark deeply when someone comes to the door but aren't usually aggressive. They may be shy around strangers.
Introducing them at an early age to a variety of people and situations will help them become flexible and adaptable. Obedience training is very important for such large, powerful dogs.
Training should be firm, calm, and gentle. Tug-of-war or other aggressive games should not be played. Some are heavy droolers.
The coat is short, dense, smooth, and glossy in brindle, fawn, steel blue, black, or harlequin.
Grooming & Exercise Needs
Great Danes should be brushed weekly. They can live comfortably in the city, suburbs, or country as long as they get enough exercise every day. A brisk walk or a romp in the park is recommended.
The Great Danes of today are far removed temperamentally and physically from their mastiff-like ancestors, which were bred in Germany in the Middle Ages to hunt wild boar.
Breed-related health concerns: bloat, hip dysplasia, osteosarcoma, hypertrophic osteodystrophy (a developmental disorder causing painful swelling of bones), cervical vertebral instability (a malformation of neck vertebrae causing a wobbling gait).
