History of the Great Dane:

How long has the Great Dane been with us? The big fawn dog, ancestor of the present Great Dane though heavier in build and more like the Mastiff type, has been known to mankind throughout the centuries in most parts of the world. It is probable that the Mastiff and the Great Dane had common ancestors, and only after decades of selective breeding has the "Apollo of Dogs" evolved as we know it today. (Jean Lanning, The Great Dane)
A large dane like dog was used in the hunt by the ancient Assyrians, and again shows up in Egyptian wall paintings. The Romans used a dane like dog for their blood sports. These dogs appeared more slimly built than the Assyrian dog. Excavations have shown that the dane type dog existed in Russia, Poland, and middle Gremany. During the middle ages the dog was found all throughout Europe and Great Britian. These dogs were bred by the Nobles to hunt wild boar. Because of the damage done to the ear of these dogs during the hunt, cropping first appreared. The crop evolved to the long artistic crop here and on the continent. Ear cropping is banned in England. The breed as we know it today was largely developed in Germany and many fine specimens were exported.
