Its the tallest dog in the world.It originates from Germany.In the ancient times it was said to be providing protection from evil spirits.But now they are very lazy.

It's doubtful whether this majestic dog originated in Denmark. Yet, George Buffon, the 18th French naturalist, evidently thought so when he called it the Grand Danois.Dane means Danish, the dog was developed in Germany at least 400 years ago, where his purpose was to hunt down the wild boar, a ferocious and tough beast. Now the Great Dane's job is to be a devoted and wonderful friend.

The Great Dane is a giant of the canine world. It displays affection towards its master, patience with children, loyalty to friends, and restraint with strangers.Its elegant bearing , fine proportions, powerful muscularity, and broad and flexible gait , all create a spectacular impression.Another important fact is that this big fellow eats plenty of foods.
