Not to be confused with the Dalmatian.
The Great Dane (French: Grand Danois) is a breed of dog introduced in Nintendogs + Cats. The Great Danes in Nintendogs + Cats are very fast and perfect for disc competitions and lure coursing. The breed is also known in German as Deutsche Dogge, but it keeps its name in Danish.
Great Danes are a powerful, active working breed-- one of the largest in the dog world, in fact. They were bred by German nobility to hunt large, dangerous predators such as boars and bears.
Despite its intimidating stature, the Great Dane is a gentle companion dog, and is especially protective of young children.
