The Great Dane (18th Cent. French: Grand Danois), also known as German Mastiff (German: Deutsche Dogge) or Danish Hound (German: Dänischer Hund), is a breed of domestic dog (Canis lupus familiaris) known for its giant size. The Great Dane is one of the world’s tallest dog breeds; the current world record holder, measuring 112 cm (44 in) from paw to shoulder is Zeus. Great Danes were originally bred to hunt deer and wild boar.
The Great Dane’s large and imposing appearance belies its friendly nature. The breed is often referred to as a gentle giant Great Danes are generally well disposed toward other dogs, other non-canine pets, and humans but strangers are obviously an exception. They generally do not exhibit extreme aggressiveness or a high prey drive. The Great Dane is a very gentle and loving animal with proper care and training. A Great Dane is great for small children and a loving family as long as it grows up in the family from a pup. However if not socialized from a pup can be very aggressive towards other dogs (Info from Wikipedia)
