|Pick a Dane ,pick a dane!!!
As you can see ,I might be a little biased,but...
When you are considering the size of your condo ,you might also want to consider the amount of hair and grooming requirements of a newfy. HOLY HAIR!!!
Constant brushing,hairbunnies ,and professional grooming (moms a groomer).They are intolerant of heat,but so are Great Danes .I won't stay outside if the temp gets above 70.
I went to puppy school ,just as any dog would need to do. I potty trained in a month .I don't know where the idea came that we are hard to train.Every dog needs training .Love ,consistancy and excersize are what every dog needs. They will give you what you put in.
As for diet...I eat Eagle Pack Holistic for Giant Breeds ,with low protein and fat,but you will need that with a newfy too.Every breed has health issues ,but if you find a reputable breeder ,they can be dramatically reduced.
And as for lifespan...My great grandparents are still alive and thriving at 12 years old.It's all about the breeding and health testing done by the breeder.
I also have a 3 year old human sister who I adore! She lays all over me ,feeds me ,and gives me treats. I would defend her to the death ,if need be!
I do like newfies though,they are great dogs too.
But there is nothing like a Dane !
