Breeding Questions & Information / Great + Greater = Greatest?
« on: March 24, 2008, 11:14:21 pm »
Hi all,

I've recently decided to fulfill a dream of mine.  Since i was 10 years old, I've wanted to have a Great Dane. In my research though, the short life span of them makes me nervous.  (I cried like a baby at the age of 18 when my cat of 10 years died.)  My father who is a rancher has often talked about a phenomenon called Hybrid Vigor in cattle, that got me to thinking:

If I cross a great Dane with another breed, chances are that the off spring will be less prone to diseases, and will have a longer life span.

So I've been looking for another dog breed that I feel would compliment the Great Dane in looks and personality.  So far my hands down favorite is the Greater Swiss Mountain Dog.

Has anyone ever seen a Great Dane - Swissy mix?  Would it be fair to call it the Greatest Swiss Mountain Dane?  I would love to hear the opinions of a group far more experienced than I.
