Great Danes are very large, elegant and muscular dogs. They stand upwards of 30 inches at the shoulders and weigh anywhere from 120 to 150 pounds. The Great Dane comes in several colors inclughing fawn, brindle, black, blue, harlequin or mantle. Though they are massive dogs, they should be square in proportion, with the length of the body matching the height. They have rectangular heads. They have high-set ears of medium size, which are often cropped. If not cropped, the ears fold forward, toward the cheek. The long tail tapers to a point and should never be cropped.
