In contrary to the image that their athletic build creates, they are quite docile and loving. Here are some facts about this interesting breed of dog.
1 Although their names may indicate otherwise, Great Danes are not from Denmark. The breed originated from Germany, leading us to the second fun fact.
2 Great Danes were named the national dog of Germany in 1876. Germany went as far as to ban all other names, and dictated that the sole name was “Deutsche dogge”.
3 The Great Dane breed was created by combining multiple existing breeds to create the perfect boar-hunting dog.
