And for those of you looking to adopt a Great Dane and you see that we do have some that are 5, 6, and even 7 years old. Please don't let their age deter you. It is a myth that Great Danes only live to be about 6 or 7. The fact of the matter is that if you know about Great Danes and you take the time to learn about their major health risks and you care for them and feed them right, many of these great dogs can live to be over 10 years old. We know because we have several that are 10 years old right now and still going strong. So, never let their age be a determination...you could be cheating yourself out of one great dog!!
