About Danes

Great Danes make wonderful family pets for a household which wants a large, affectionate short-haired breed who will offer a measure of protection. They are a very people-oriented breed and need to be a part of the family. Great Danes do not do well in kennel situations where they are exclusively outdoor dogs. They need and crave human companionship. Great Danes are loving, easy to housebreak, simple to groom, and of average intelligence. They prefer to be lap dogs and will find solace on your chairs and couches.  Overall,  they are sweet, loving, and protective pets.

Great Danes come in all sorts of colors; here some of the colors and patterns that are possible.  Click the pictures to view their names.  The first seven colors here are the seven AKC recognized show colors.

We breed mantles and harlequins, but because of how genetics works, we also get merles and piebalds in our litters as well.
