HARLEQUIN GREAT DANES: HARLEQUINS ARE THE MOST POPULAR OF ALL GREAT DANE SPECIES. THEY HAVE A LOT IN COMMON WITH EACH OTHER AND THEIR GENERATIONS COME FROM A LARGE NUMBER OF VARIOUS BREEDS.
THE HARLEQUIN FACTOR: They are a small breed with a large number of different colors and patterns. Some have very dark markings while others have lighter ones. There are some that look like they could be from any other breed but their coloring makes them stand out. They are not known for being docile or placid dogs. They tend to be independent and live independently of humans.
However, they do enjoy human company when it comes to playtime.
THE HAREFACET: The harefactory is a special type of breeding that involves combining two breeds together. These combinations usually involve one or both of the breeds having white markings, such as black and tan Great Danes and purebred pugs. The markings can appear in different patterns, such as harlequins and mantle great danes.
THE MANTLE: The mantle is a special type of coat pattern and coloring for the Great Dane. It appears mostly on puppies and younger dogs, but it does fade away with age. Usually the markings begin at the head and then spread down the rest of the body.
THE GREAT DANE: The Great Dane is a stocky, tall dog that has a muscular build. They usually weigh between 100 and 200 pounds and are 30 to 38 inches tall. Their height should be about 1.45 to 1.55 times their length.
They are known for their large, powerful head and their long, graceful neck. They have a short, glossy coat that comes in a few different colors and patterns.
THE GREAT DANE AND ITS BREEDING: The Great Dane has been bred from several different dog types during its long history. These types included mastiffs, greyhounds, bulldogs (including the English and French), and terriers. The English used this mix of dogs for boar hunting and even wolves. The French, however, used them for bear hunting.
THE GREAT DANE’S CAREER OF SERVICE: The Great Dane was bred to be a type of guard dog. They are known best for this reason, as their large size and intimidating features allowed them to scare away intruders or even the person they were assigned to guard. However, they were not good watchdogs. This is because most Great Danes are too friendly towards humans to be able to attack them.
THE OTHER SIDE OF THE COIN: While Great Danes make good guard dogs, they can also be a bit skittish around loud noises and sudden movements. Most of them are friendly enough with other dogs their own size or smaller, but some can be aggressive towards other dogs. Most are not good with small animals. They have a tendency to be lazy and will spend most of the day sleeping if they do not have anything else to do.
THE DIFFERENT TYPES: There are four main types of Great Danes: Standard, Giant, Continental, and Harlequin. The standard type is a regular Great Dane. They are usually black, brindle, or fawn in color with a black mustache and black circular markings on their forehead. The giant type is bigger than the standard type and is also heavier. These dogs are only bred for shows.
The continental type is a rarer type of Great Dane. It is smaller than the standard type, but larger than the giant type. They also have a distinctively different head shape and different markings than either of the other types. Finally, there are harlequins. These dogs have white and black patched coloring and usually have blue eyes.
THE GREAT DANE’S TEMPERAMENT: A Great Dane’s temperament can vary depending on how they were trained and what experiences they had during their youth.
