The Great Danebull is half Great Dane and half Pit Bull. This is an active breed that requires daily exercise. They’ll also eat quite a bit more than a small dog, so make sure that you can afford the stomach of the Great Danebull.
Big dog lovers will surely find this mixed breed to be one of the best. They are big, lovable, loyal, and protective. They are everything that you’d hope to find in a big dog, with little care for their coat necessary as well.
This dog is a full-time commitment for many years. It’s common for this mixed breed to live as long as 14 years, making them a long-lived breed, living much longer than the average Great Dane. This can be both a blessing and a curse since they may need more care in their elder years. Remember this when you bring your puppy home and be serious about caring for him or her through old age. Pets are family.
These guys are big. They’ll reach a shoulder height between 24 and 28 inches and weigh an average of 60 to 90 pounds. That’s a lot of dog.
Despite their size, they love to snuggle and climb into your lap, so if you don’t think you can handle it, train them young to stay on the floor. These dogs tend to have a muscular build and are ready for sports, play, and naps. They truly do tend to nap inside the house but will be ready to run out the door whenever you are ready too.
This tends to be a healthy mixed breed with only the typical health issues that all pet owners should look for. Ensure that your puppy comes from healthy parents and breeders who have taken great care of their animals. When parents are free of genetic defects and hereditary health problems, your pet will likely be healthy also.
Their temperament can be a wide array of possibilities. Since the two breeds are similar in some ways and different in others, it is difficult to predict your dog’s personality. Meet the parents when you can; this will give you a clearer indication of how your puppy may behave when grown, taking after mom or dad.
Both breeds are large and scary-looking, and they’ll bark at intruders and trespassers on your property. It’s highly likely that they’ll make keen watchdogs, but whether they have what it takes to be a guard dog would depend on personality and training. (Watchdogs are untrained and bark to alert you, whereas guard dogs are trained to attack).
Great Danebull appearance
The colors of the Great Danebull are like a kaleidoscope of possibilities. They can be in two-color coats or solid color coats. Merle coats are possible but rare. Colors include black, white, blue, fawn, bronze, liver, red, white, and brown Patterns may include harlequin, mantle, sable, merle, or brindle.
The consistency of their coat is soft, short, and easy to care for. Most Great Danebulls only need to be wiped with a damp cloth to clean their fur, and daily brushing is more than enough to keep them looking glossy and healthy.
They will shed, and you’ll find that in the spring, it can be quite heavy with a lighter shed the rest of the year. Bathing can help remove dead hair and reduce shedding, and getting them blown out by a groomer in the spring will also make an enormous difference.
Since they don’t have much fur, this mix is cold-intolerant. In other words, they hate to be cold. They will seek out your blanket to snuggle in and truly appreciate a winter coat for long walks. If you live in a warm climate, this is the dog for you, and they’ll love never being cold. That doesn’t mean that they don’t play in the snow. Some Danebulls relish playing outdoors in the cold weather, but they need a little coat to keep them warm like kids.
Despite their size and intimidating looks, the Great Danebull is an affectionate and loving dog. They are good with children and bond strongly with their families. They also love creature comfort and will snuggle with you whenever they are given the opportunity.
Despite being a lover of the sunshine and outdoor play, this is not a dog for the outdoors. They bond strongly with their family, whom they see as their pack. They need to be with you emotionally. They’ll be more secure and well-adjusted when they are housepets who go out with you for about 60 to 90 minutes of exercise each day. That will keep them happy and healthy, but they’ll also be happy to snuggle with you for seasonal football on the television.
This is one of the coolest mixed breeds because they bond with humans so well. They tend to get along with other housepets as long as they are acclimated to them as puppies and learn that they are part of the family. They should be well-supervised with smaller animals in the house, and it is not advisable to leave them out of their kennel when you are gone if there are other small pets in the house. Even accidental harm can happen from overzealous play.
Children are typically safe with this mixed breed as well, but remember that all dogs and children should be supervised at all times. Children should never be allowed to try to ride a big dog either. This leads to bites and can hurt the dog’s back. Respect for the dog is key when teaching children how to behave with a dog.
