Great Danes are a large breed of domestic dogs that originated from Germany. Despite their name, Great Danes have no roots to Denmark. Characterized for their long legs and immense size, Great Danes are a cross-breed between English Mastiffs and Irish Wolfhounds. Their intended breeding purpose was to serve as hunting dogs but they have since evolved into very leisurely companions perfect for homes with children.
