The Great Dane or Deutsche Dogge is a large German breed of domestic dog known for its giant size. The German name of the breed is Deutsche Dogge, or German Mastiff. The French name is Dogue Allemand.

The Great Dane combines, in its regal appearance, strength, and elegance with great size and a powerful, well-formed, smoothly muscled body.

It is one of the giant working breeds, but is unique in that its general conformation must be so well balanced that it never appears clumsy, and shall move with a long reach and powerful drive. The Great Dane is a short-haired breed with a strong, galloping figure.

The Great Dane is one of the tallest dog breeds. The record holder for tallest dog was a Great-Dane called Zeus who died September 2014, at age five, that measured 111.8 cm (44.0 in) from paw to shoulder.

In 1878, a committee was formed in Berlin which changed the name of the “Englische Dogge” (English mastiff derivatives) to “Deutsche Dogge” (German mastiff), this being the Great Dane. This laid the foundations from which the breed was developed.

During the 19th century, the dog was known as a “German boarhound” in English-speaking countries.

Some German breeders tried to introduce the names “German Dogge” and “German Mastiff” on the English market, because they believed the breed should be marketed as a dog of luxury and not as a working dog.

Due to the increasing Geopolitical tensions between Germany and France and Britain, the dog later became referred to as a “Great Dane”, a literal translation from the new name given to it by the French, Grand Danois, even though the breed has no known connection to Denmark.

In Germany, it remains known as “Deutsche Dogge.” In the Scandinavian languages, the French name and pronunciation are used.
