106 Great Danes Who Don’t Understand How BIG They Are (New Pics)
It can sometimes seem like the bigger the dog, the more love it has to give its owner and the world. And while we totally love our smaller canine companions, the gigantic Great Danes are a sight to behold. Friendly, social, and charming, these floppy-eared loveable dogs are considered by some to be the perfect match for families.
Great Danes can grow up to weigh a whopping 175 pounds (79 kilograms) and be up to 32 inches (81 centimeters) tall, so that’s all the proof that you need that they’re huge. But reading facts is one thing—seeing these canines’ size with your own eyes is another. Bored Panda wanted to show you just how fun Great Danes can be, so we’ve put together this wholesome and hilarious list of their antics for you to enjoy.

Originally, Great Danes (aka German Mastiffs and Deutsche Dogges) were bred to hunt wild boar and deer back in Germany, around 400 years ago. They were a mix between English Mastiffs and Irish Wolfhounds and were favored by the nobility.
Great Danes used to be known as Englische Dockes, highlighting their link to England. However, as relations between Germany and other countries became more strained in the late 19th century, the Germans renamed the breed to represent their own nation. Later, however, as relations worsened further, the breed became known as the Great Dane.

Strong, elegant, and powerful, Great Danes mature slowly and don’t need all that much exercise as they’re growing. That doesn’t mean that these dogs don’t need movement (they do and they enjoy it), but they’re far from the Huskies of the canine world. However, one thing that you absolutely cannot skimp on is getting high-quality food.
The breed is so popular that it’s become firmly ingrained in pop culture, probably even without you noticing it, too. For instance, both Scooby-Doo and Marmaduke, probably two of the best-known dogs worldwide, are Great Danes.
We’re just impressed that Shaggy’s able to hold Scoobs in his arms and run with him whenever a spooky ghost shows up. He’s obviously way stronger than he looks, even if he is a cartoon character. Then again, maybe the adrenaline kicks in.
