Great Danoodle (Great Dane x Poodle)

A cross of two most unique breeds, the Great Danoodle would take after the intelligence of both its parents, particularly the Poodle. The Poodle involved in the development of this breed is the Standard Poodle. Some of them could possess an immense chasing instinct all because of their Poodle ancestry.  Since they are highly social and deeply attached to their owners, leaving them alone for extended periods could trigger separation anxiety in them.
