Artist's Description

Often called the Butcher’s Dog because they would sleep outside meat shops hoping for treats, the Broholmer or Danish Mastiff is a guard dog and herder, but its size is the most intimidating thing about them! Broholmers are big lovable pets who are great with kids and other dogs. They have little concept of how large they are and love to sit on your lap. They are remarkably agile and energetic for their size and love to spend time with you no matter what you’re doing. Descendant of the Viking dog, the first Broholmer was presented to the Danish Court by King James I back in 1566. Unfortunately the breed is prone to a form of degenerative myelopathy similar to Lou Gehrig’s disease, so they have been extremely difficult to breed outside of their native lands. Thankfully this seems to be changing as a female Broholmer named Honor debuted the breed at the AKC in 2010. Since then, healthy litters have increased popularity of the breed with hopefully a long-running and healthy family line.
