"101 Dalmatians", "Air Bud", "Beethoven" and "The Mask". What do these movies have in common? Well, they all feature cute, energetic canines! However, the spotlight for this feature shines on the big burly Great Dane who has captured our hearts (or scared the hell out of us) on the silver screen.
The Great Dane, save for its huge physique, is actually a gentle, goofy type of dog. Dubbed as the 'gentle giant', the Great Dane is easy to work with in movies, thus appearing in many films throughout the years, even in silent films dating back to 1917! From cameo appearances, the Great Dane has slowly taken over the main role in movies like Marmaduke and Scooby Doo.
