We brought this sweet girl home a week ago. We are her fourth family (including the foster family) in her short 6 month life :/ She's a real sweetheart and we're so happy she's joined us! Loki may still be on the fence about the whole thing though. She looks Dane, but we aren't sure if it's full Dane or not - time will tell :)

OMG adorable!! She looks like a Dane mix but a high percentage of GD.

Hi, I don't see Dane at all, she looks catahoula to me.
Interesting :) I admit, I know nothing about Catahoula's.. how big do they normally get? Right now, she's 6 months and 82 lbs :) From my quick google search, it seems to indicate she would only have another 8 lbs to go before she reached a normal max weight? What's your experience like?

I don't know alot about danes but 82 lbs at 6 mos does sound big, catahoula X dane maybe.
You should check her paws see if the webbing goes all the way to the ends of her toes.

Catahoulas are lovely, high-energy working dogs. I wonder if she is a Catahoula/GD cross...? That would explain the looks AND the size.

I know nothing about Catahoulas so am curious to know, Besides the coloring what is it that makes you think Catahoula??? Cause, just for information purposes, (No insult intended) Danes do come in a variety of Merle color patterns.

I am no expert, but her features look more delicate than a pure-bred GD. And the goofy grin and bright eyes she has remind me of all of the catahoulas I know.

Interesting! :) She could very well be a mix, but Danes definitely come in her colouring. I will have to check her feet tonight once I'm home - I'm curious now! My guess is that she's a purebred Dane, but a poorly bred one at that (not surprising given all the horrible breeders and puppy mills in this province ) and therefore she probably won't get as a big as a well bred Dane, but time will tell.
