They can be great and gentle dogs, but they are obviously huge and eat a LOT of food

Every great dane I have know has been a wonderful, kind, creature.  They are laid back, and calm.  

However, the one thing I will never do, is own one. They die so young, it seems so painful to have this beautiful, kind, gentle beast that dies way too young, with their life span averaging 6-8 years.

I think Great Danes are Fabulous dogs!!! However, the saddest part of those beautiful and loving dogs is... Their life span in 7-9 years. My two oldest dogs are now nearing 12 years old. Vet bills are higher, aches and pains of aging have begun, and I wish their life span was as long as mine because I love them so much.

they are GREAT! we had one, but only for a few months. we got her from a friend, and she ended up dying of old age. she was so sweet, and followed me everywhere. i called her my shadow lol.. but do know that they don't have a very long life expectancy, 8-10 years avg., i think...give or take, depending on the health of the dog, of course. oh....and i've not met one yet that didn't think it wasn't a lap dog lol...they're big babies =)

here's a picture of chloe before she passed... i miss her. she was the absolute best <3

They are now as we have a 7 month old grand baby ... My oldest dogs just nap mostly and aren't interested in the baby.. We have 5 dogs actually a beagle, 2- Boston terriers, and 2- French bulldogs. Let me just say, the frenchies are 2 yrs old now and are Fabulous with our granddaughter. Nora was trying to get a ball from the boy Frenchie and he just sat there.. No growling nothing. They love Nora.. And my female Frenchie sits right by her most of the time. The frenchies are pretty docile dogs.. They love to snuggle..
