Rommel has the most beautiful nature, is big boned, well-structured and marked to perfection. He brings with him bags of character, handsome good looks and comes from a healthy lineage with outstanding movement.

Daneholz Great Danes proudly welcomed Rommel into our home in November 2010 with the view to him being the future of our kennels. While showing is my passion, unfortunately Rommel had an interrupted start to his show career. In 2011 we purchased and renovated a larger home for our extended human and fur family, therefore missing many a show opportunity. Even having only been shown sparingly, Rommel has achieved extraordinary results, winning a Best in Specialty Show at just 12 months and gaining his Championship Title at 18 months of age.
We have great plans for Rommel in 2012 as he begins to mature into adulthood. Look out for him in the showring, and please come and say hi, he is always ready to meet new people show them his fantasticly friendly personality.

Big thank you to Grant Lawrence of Ikatchn Great Danes, for allowing me to have this stunning boy.

Rommel had some time out of the ring in 2012 as we welcomed Jersey to our home. He has returned with great enthusiasm, taking out three Challenges and Runner up Best of Breeds in his first weekend back after 7 months. Keep an eye out for him in the ring as he returns to strut his stuff for the ladies!
