Life-Size Great Dane
This gentle giant of a Great Dane is the perfect addition to your home. Little ones will love this pup, and the best part is there isn't any slobber.
Did you know? The Great Dane, a breed of dog, is often referred to as the "Gentile Giant?" It is known for its unusually large size, statuesque appearance and gentile personality. Various sources report that the Great Dane was developed from the medieval boarhound, and/or the Mastiff and Irish wolfhound lines. It is also reported that the Great Dane was developed from mastiff-like dogs taken to Germany by the Alans. The breed may be about 400 years old. Great Danes have a smooth, glossy coat of short, thick hair. The most common colorings include brindle, fawn, blue, black, harlequin or mantle. They measure approximately 70-80 centimeters/27.5-31.5 inches high at the shoulders. The Great Dane's large and imposing appearance belies its friendly nature. Great Danes are generally well-disposed toward other dogs, other non-canine pets, wild animals, and humans (including strangers and children).
More to the Story
Artisans hand sew the animals inside out, an old world tradition that results in the minimization of seams, and their bodies are carefully sculpted to create musculature and features like movement in a walking or sitting position that are unique to each creature. On average, there are 42 separate pieces required to make each animal, that must be combined by a team of truly creative artists to create the distinctly realistic features that characterize HANSA animals. (Some animals have as many as 240 different parts!) Each animal is individually hand sewn, to give it a unique personality, there are more than 860 different fabrics and man-made furs from which the "coat" and "hides" are made, along with over 6000 sets of different eyes, whiskers, claws, noses, and related accessories allocated for creating these wonderful plush animals. Stuffing emphasizes careful attention to the placement of the highest quality man-made materials. When you hold these wonderfully life-like animals, you will see and feel HANSA's emphasis on quality, which is a result of careful attention to design, custom fabric selection, cutting, sewing, stuffing, eye placement, feature creation, framing, airbrushing and finishing. Since each animal is hand sewn, there will be slight variations in appearance.
This great dane measures 54" L x 12.5" W x 37" H.
