We just adopted a Mastiff/Great Dane mix.we did a 2 week trial time and he weighed 92 pounds and 2 weeks later he is 96 pounds.He is only a year and a half old. He has a couple things we need to work on like barking and protecting us from those mean killer bunnies and squirrels in our back yard. He chases them with me attached! He is a wonderful addition to our family.

I have a Great Daniff (Mastiff/Dane). He is 10 months and a huge lap dog. He is 140 lbs. and still growing. As for temperment, he is the greatest giant baby anyone could ask for. They require a lot of attention and love, so if you are not prepared to devote your time to the breeds...don't buy one. For those who choose them...they are perfect family pets if trained properly.

My four year old son is obsessed with the cartoon Scooby-Doo, so my husband and I were going to look for him a great dane for christmas when one of our friends called us and said that they had found a dog wandering their street. We went out and looked at him and it was a 10 month old daniff puppy, naturally our son fell in love with him and named him Scooby-Doo...we have had him for almost a year now and he is like my son. We have two kids a 4 yr old and a 2 yr old, and they absolutely love him to death. He is so much a part of our family, we couldn't have asked for a better dog. He is so gentle and so protective of the family. He is just a wonderful breed. I don't have to worry about the kids when they are outside b/c Scooby doesn't let anyone he doesn't know near the kids and he keeps an eye on them. I would strongly suggest to any family that a daniff is 100% a perfect family dog. You will not make a mistake going with this breed!

I got a dog about 6 months ago, it's small and a mixed breed. He is sharpai, german sheperd, and great dane. I'm going crazy because I can't get him to stop chewing on every thing and stealing too. And I can't seem to find a dry dog food he will eat. Can you please help me.

    Chewing is a natural behavior in puppies, but in adults its could be related to any number of things. It could be that he doesn't know what's acceptable to chew on, could be bored, or may have some type of a separation anxiety or fear related anxiety. Maybe he craves more attention or possibly you haven't established yourself as the 'pack leader'yet providing enough discipline and guidance. There's a bunch of different things you can try like increasing interactive time, providing specific toys for him, and setting acceptable rules. You may want to consult a behavior professional. The food could be related to the same problem, but its a good idea to have him checked by a veterinarian to make sure he's healthy.

I have two Danes and they are WONDERFULL. I would not trade them for any other breed in the world. The only thing that makes them a gaurd dog is their size. The only mean Dane I have ever seen was trained to be that way. A mean Dane is not natural. Most do fine with small children but you had better supervise because of thier size.
