The Great Dane combines, in its regal appearance, dignity, strength and elegance with great size and a powerful, well-formed, smoothly muscled body. It is one of the giant working breeds, but is unique in that its general conformation must be so well balanced that it never appears clumsy, and shall move with a long reach and powerful drive. It is always a unit-the Apollo of dogs. A Great Dane must be spirited, courageous, never timid; always friendly and depend-able. This physical and mental combination is the characteristic which gives the Great Dane the majesty possessed by no other breed. It is particularly true of this breed that there is an impression of great masculinity in dogs, as compared to an impression of femininity in bitches.

The Great Dane, known as the Apollo of Dogs, is a calm and well-balanced dog. He is spirited, courageous, always friendly and never timid or aggressive. He has a natural suspicion toward strangers making him a good protector of home and family. The Great Dane if raised with children is usually very gentle; however, due to his size and as can happen with any dog, accidental injuries can occur and small children should never be left unattended. His appearance is one of dignity, elegance, strength and power. His gait is compared to that of a Thoroughbred horse with his long, easy strides.

The breed today is known by several names. While it did not originate in Denmark, most English speaking countries use the name "Great Dane". In several central European countries, it is recognized as the "Deutsche Dogge", except in France where it is known as both the "Dogue Allemand" and the "Danois." In Holland, it is referred to as the "Duitse Dogge" and the "Deense Dogge" and in Italy it is named the "Alano."

Drawings of dogs resembling Great Danes have been found on Egyptian monuments dating back to 3,000 B.C. and artifacts in Babylonian temples from about 2,000 B.C. also depict Dane-like dogs resembling today's Great Dane. Some believe that the breed originated in Tibet where literature from 1121 B.C. describes dogs similar in type to the Great Dane. However, the Great Dane, or Deutsche Dogge, as he is known today is said to have originated in Germany.
If you are considering the adoption of a Great Dane puppy, or any breed, it is very important to be selective in choosing a responsible and reputable breeder. Ensure that the prospective puppy's parents have all health clearances.
