Weiler Dane (Great Dane x Rottweiler)

A unique combination of two magnificent breeds, the Weiler Dane is as gentle as its parents, also inheriting their loyal disposition and protective nature. If inclining more on the Rottweiler’s side, it would not always be pleasant while interacting with kids and pets of the family. Massive and powerful in appearance, it inherits the Great Dane’s height and Rottweiler’s muscular built, attaining an intimidating look. Another trait that the Weiler Dane adopts from its Rottweiler parent is its stubbornness that needs correction through obedience training.
