The Great Dane is a remarkable breed of canine. These “Old Souls” are not only giants but they are gentle. Good breeders produce healthy dogs that live 7-12 years of healthy, energetic companionship.
However, rescues tend to have health problems because otherwise, they would not need rescuing. Most of the rescue health issues are pooled in the general donation fund. This page highlights Great Danes that are in need of special medical care from surgery to mental rehabilitation with a professional trainer.
