I got a Daniff the weekend after thanksgiving as my VERY early Christmas present. His name is Dodger and I must say that I am very impressed by how smart and loving he is. They do tend to get pretty big considering mine is 15 weeks and weighs 46lbs. He also stands 22 inches to the shoulder. And just to show how smart he is. He was potty trained by the age of 10 weeks. And we got him when he was 8 weeks. I would highly recommend a Daniff or Mastidane to any family. They are great with other dogs and cats. And are goofballs and intelligent at the same time. You can't go wrong with one of these guys. But just a heads up... They think they are lap dogs.

Bronco is a Gorgeous beautiful dog with a soft shiny Red Fawn and white coat, big and floppy ears and huge feet. He is still a bit of a clumsy puppy. I have to watch him closly so he doesn't hurt himself. He gets into everything. He broke a toe when he was around 4 months old. His tail is long and strong with a huge head. He's a fathead. His coat is very easy to clean, I just stand him in the shower! I brush him every couple of days. I haven't had a problem with shedding at all.
He is smart, funny, always curious, protective, laid back, loving, sweet.... I could go on forever. He's the biggest lap dog ever. Loves to be with me no matter what. He is smart... but stubborn at times. He really likes to play dumb dog when he's in the mood. He barks a little sometimes. It's not his fault though, my house was broken into when he was younger and he's still a little bugged out by weird sounds at night. At nine months Bronco is already bigger in the chest than most Danes I've met. He is lanky, but his musculature is very pronounced. He's heavier than a Dane, yet less massive than a Mastiff. His bones seem a little denser than your average Dane. So far his hips are great. His hindquarters are much chunkier than most Danes I've met. He has great definition in his hips and legs. He eats lots.... twice as much as your average size dog. Bronco just hit 100lbs. He's 9 months old as of Feb 15th.
He doesn't have any allergies so far. His general health has been great. He did have demodex.... so no breeding for my big boy. He has big white teeth.... he's not a year old yet so I'm not sure how it'll go. His mom and dad's looked fine though.
Bronco is an apartment dog. He is great. Some chewing though. Walking every day is a must. We have been going to the dog park since he was 8 weeks old and he loves to run around out there. He has a wonderful loping gait. Sometimes he has problems stopping. I think his breaks are developing as he gets older! I think he would be wonderful with a family. He is protective, but he loves people and other animals.
