This large breed from Denmark is also known as the Danish Mastiff and has been much loved for their guarding capabilities since the late 16th century. Monarchs and nobility of that country favor their imposing appearance, because it’s coupled with a relaxed, loving personality. They make wonderful pets, but do require some regular activity for mental and physical health.
