Supporting purebred Great Danes
The Great Dane Club of New England is a non-profit organization dedicated to the purebred Great Dane, including the responsible care, breeding and exhibiting of Danes registered with the American Kennel Club. We support the interests and welfare of this breed and our members who love them. Owning a Great Dane is a lifelong commitment, and we are dedicated to responsible care and breeding and to public education to help protect and advance this wonderful breed.
