Don’t judge a book by its cover.

We’ve heard this over and over for as long as we can remember, and it holds true. This is especially true of Great Danes. Although this breed was originally developed for hunting purposes, modern society has found other uses for them. Even though they can be considerably larger than a human when standing on all fours, their intimidating appearance belies the fact that they are actually big softies at heart.

Great Danes seem to have no concept of their own size, as evidenced by their penchant for playing the part of lap dog by leaping almost haplessly toward their human companion. All in the name of love, of course. If you’ve been debating whether or not to adopt a Great Dane, allow me to be that deciding factor.

So, please, scroll down and have a look.

These canines are not referred to as So-So Danes or Okay Danes. Not at all; they were originally called Great Danes. This is so for a good reason, by the way. Despite their massive stature, they make for some of the most empathetic and cherished pets you could hope to own.

#6 The comparison between a human’s hand and a 4-month-old Dane has left me awe-struck.
