Breed Fun Facts

The Great Dane was initially bred by Germans as a boar hunter and then later used as a guard dog. Great Danes are actually a very gentle breed though. They love to be around people and have been known to make great family dogs. Great Danes make fine apartment dogs despite their size since they are not as high energy as other breeds.
