Italian Daniff (Great Dane x Cane Corso)

These big dogs with a pleasing personality is an ideal pet choice for spacious homes. Because of their high intelligence level and eagerness to learn, training this breed seems extremely easy. Unlike most Great Dane mixes, they do not serve the purpose of an efficient guard dog due to their low barking tendency and docile nature. Since they rarely shed, maintaining them would not be too difficult a task.
