20 funny photos of proving how big Great Danes really are

Great Danes have the word “great” in their name for a reason. They’re an incredible breed of dog. But they can grow to shockingly large sizes, as these photos show.

One of the best things about Great Danes is that they’re super friendly animals. But they’re as giant as they are gentle. Some people who adopt them as puppies are amazed when they keep on growing larger and larger.

All of these owners cannot believe just how huge their Great Danes are. They also wouldn’t change them for the world:
