- Other names:
- Great Daniff
The Daniff is a hybrid dog which is bred by crossing a Great Dane with a Mastiff. As a hybrid dog the Daniff will inherit the physical and behavioral traits of both the Great Dane and Mastiff dog breeds. However, not all members of this breed will inherit the same characteristics (even if from the same litter). It is recommended to familiarize yourself with both the Mastiff and the Great Dane if you are planning on adopting a Daniff as the breed can have more characteristics of one parent breed than the other.
The Great Dane and the Mastiff are known for being gentle giants, and the Daniff is no exception. It is a very friendly dog with an affectionate disposition, and it will do well with families, children, and other pets. It may have a protective attitude towards strangers but should warm up to them quickly if their owner approves. These dogs do not require a lot of grooming and will make an excellent family companion or work dog.
