Doberdane (Great Dane x Doberman)

The Doberdane stands unique among most other crosses because of its gentle nature and aggressive appearance. Being as protective as the Great Dane, and a great guard dog like its Doberman Pinscher parent, it would definitely pose an immense threat to any intruder trying to enter its home. At the same time, because of its friendly, loving disposition, it excels as great therapy dogs too. However, these large, strong dogs are not a good option for first-timers or novice owners.
