Great Dane- is a very gentle and loving animal and with the proper care and training is great around children, especially when being raised with them. Great Danes are generally well disposed toward other dogs, other non-canine pets, and familiar humans.
If i was to have a big dog this would be the winner. I think they are beautiful dogs! [I like Great Danes that do not have their ears cropped. I don't like dogs whose tails have been docked either! Tails and ears are great]
