The Daniff is a mongrel dog, a cross between the English Mastiff and Great Dane dog breeds. Lovable, intelligent and protective, these puppies inherit the best qualities of both their parents. Despite the growing popularity of this designer breed, you can find these mixed breed dogs in breed-specific shelters and rescues, so remember to adopt. These large, lovable puppies are a mix of two giant breeds, so they are best suited to a backyard home, and they love to interact with people. They are very intelligent and playful puppies, so they need to be kept busy with lots of toys and plenty of exercise. They are also very protective of their families, and their loyalty and intimidating size make them excellent watchdogs. If you are looking for a gentle giant with lots of affection to give, then this could be the dog for you.


Daniffs are mixed breed dogs. The most common Daniff coat colours include fawn, black and white, brindle, and even two unique colour patterns called merle and harlequin.Daniffs often have very short coats and shed, so they are not the best choice for those who suffer from allergies.Since the Daniff is such a large dog, they can easily knock over 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 well with other dogs and cats, but they must be socialised and well trained from the start to ensure a happy and safe coexistence.Training a Daniff puppy can come with some challenges. Although this mix is very intelligent, they can also tend to be a little stubborn.Daniffs can be as lazy as they are playful. Daily thirty minute walks and play with a variety of toys will help keep your dog happy and healthy.


The Daniff mixed dog breed is said to have originated in the USA in the last ten to fifteen years, but this designer breed is rapidly growing in popularity.Both parent breeds were historically used for protection, but were also wonderful companion animals as well, making this gentle giant an excellent blend of two breeds with great personalities, suitable to be both intimidating guard dogs and perfect family pets.Although the Daniff got its start as a designer breed, some have ended up in shelters or rescue groups.
