I've decided to do a feature on one breed per month. It will include their RL purpose and origin, plus lots of information on showdog.com. This will be a way to showcase rare breeds.
You are welcome to suggest a breed, if I don't get suggestions the breed will automatically be the one who wins BIS at the SDWC.

That sounds fun. I like to look back at past year national winners and top dogs in the breed

Great Dane
HISTORY:
It’s been generally accepted that the Great Dane isn’t Danish at all, but German, and its roots there as a boar hunter are hundreds of years old, perhaps even older. Some think the breed’s name was coined by the French naturalist, Georges-Louis Leclerc, Comte de Buffon who called the large dog, “le Grande Danois,” or Great Dane when he saw the breed while traveling in Denmark in the early 1700s and assumed it was a native breed of that country. The name stuck.
