Plush Danois (Great Dane x Anatolian Shepherd)

Protective, courageous and fearless like both its parents, the Push Danois makes for a great guard dog because of its alert and watchful nature. They are territorial with a reserved attitude towards strangers. Socialization and obedience training would help to address their inherent behavioural issues.
