The Great Dane is one of the tallest dog breeds and is well known for its extraordinary size. Great Danes were likely developed from the English Mastiff and the Irish Greyhound or Irish Wolfhound. Bred to hunt wild boars, they were orignally named Boar Hounds. Despite its huge and intimidating size, Great Danes are generally gentle and friendly dogs. They get along well with other dogs and are loving with children if properly socialized. The Great Dane is called the German Mastiff in Germany, the Dogue Allemand in France, and has a number of nicknames including the “Gentle Giant” and “Apollo of Dogs”.
