The Daniff is a mixed breed dog–a cross between the English Mastiff and Great Dane dog breeds. Lovable, intelligent, and protective, these pups inherited the best qualities from both of their parents. Daniffs go by several names, including Mastidane, English Daniff, and Great Daniff. Despite the growing popularity of this designer breed, you can find these mixed breed dogs in shelters and breed specific rescues, so remember to adopt! Don’t shop! These big, adorable pups are a mix of two giant breeds, so they’re best suited for a home with a backyard, and they love interacting with people. They’re very smart and playful pups, so they need to be occupied with plenty of toys and sufficiently exercised. They’re also very protective of their families, and their loyalty and intimidating size make them excellent guard dogs!

Highlights

Daniffs are mixed breed dogs. They are not purebreds like their Great Dane or English Mastiff parents.The most common Daniff coat colors include fawn, black and white, brindle, and even two unique color patterns called merle and harlequin.Daniffs usually have very short coats and do shed, so they are not the best choice for those who suffer with allergies.Since the Daniff is such a large dog, they can easily knock down a small child unintentionally if they become rambunctious, so an adult should always be present. That said, Daniffs love to play with people of all ages.Many Daniffs get along fine with other dogs and cats, but must be socialized and well trained early on to ensure a happy and safe cohabitation.Training a Daniff puppy may come with some challenges. While this mix is very intelligent, they may also tend to be a bit stubborn.Daniffs can be just as lazy as they can be playful. Daily thirty minute walks and playing with a variety of toys will help to keep your dog happy and healthy.
