A lot of people don’t know much about Great Danes. They know they’re huge dogs but what else? Do you know that Great Danes are also the sweetest dogs with the biggest hearts? Do you know that they can look majestic and yet be silly at the same time?
Great Danes are great fur companions and these photos will prove why they’re the greatest!
1. Play ball!
Want to play one-on-one but can’t find anyone? Get your great dane to play with you! Make sure you’ve got a couple of extra balls though. There’s a big chance they might puncture the ball with their teeth.
2. Joined at the hip
Lily is blind but she’s got a companion by her side, Madison, guiding her every step. They might be two huge dogs coming your way. But they’re also two dogs with great, big hearts. You’ll want to just hug them when you see them.
3. Selfie master
Great Danes are not just known for their height. This one makes sure you know her for one more thing.
“I trained my Great Dane to take selfies with me – if I’m sitting and extend my arm with my phone in hand, she plops up next to me, leans, and gives the camera this look.”
4. Canine pillow
Edna’s the perfect size for lounging with her little sister. She’s protecting her with her head draped over her. And she’s prepped her body to be her little sister’s head pillow. Perfect lounge partners.
5. How big are Great Danes?
Sit down beside them on the couch and you’ll see. They may look half your height when they’re standing on their four paws. But once they sit down, they will tower over you!
6. Catch that paw
Do you know how other dogs run around to catch their tails? This one doesn’t want his tail. He wants to catch his own paw! And with a lot of contorting, he finally got it!
7. Big vs small
8. To the rescue
Pippin was rescued by Kate’s mom when Pippin’s mom abandoned her. Kate sensed what Pippin felt and stayed by her side. Now, you’ll always see them together.

20. Just a puppy
“My sister caught her new Great Dane puppy sleeping like this.”
So this is what a Great Dane puppy looks like. They do look like regular puppies. Wonder at what age they start to grow bigger than usual. And look at that sleeping position!
22. Jäger the Great Dane
We wonder if this Great Dane was named Jäger after a drunken night. Or maybe his dad is a German, or a hunter, or a German hunter. Which story seems plausible?
23. “So, what’s on your mind?”
24. Always a sweetheart
“My old girl Darma. She’s a 10-year-old great Dane, but no one has told her yet. Her eyes may be cloudy and hip a little stiff but her heart is as big as ever.”
It doesn’t matter what age they get. Great Danes will always have the biggest hearts to pair with their big size.

29. The Good Boy Club
“This is Buck, a 10 week old Great Dane pup. He has now mastered the sit command and is now part of the good boy club.”
Well, well, well, Buck, looks like someone has been doing a good job. Keep it up, little dane!
30. Those eyes!

34. Cats and dogs
“My cat has been staying with my mom recently and he has had issues getting along with other cats so I was worried about him with her dogs. But, apparently, he’s fallen in love with her Great Dane.”
Cats and dogs have always been shown as great enemies. But, in their case, they’re the best of friends.
