•Dali Girl! •

Taken from:


The Daniff is a sensitive breed that responds well to gentle authority given its sensitive nature. A Daniff requires the presence and approval of its owner and may be very co-dependent. While this breeds size is fitting for the outdoors, it very much longs to be indoors and near its owners. Neglect and aggression can cause severe anxiety which may cause this breed to become destructive. Daniffs are protective by nature. In most situations it will give warning and alert barks but will never attack. It will use its large appearance to ward off intruders. Daniffs make excellent family dogs and are very loyal. Daniffs have an uncanny sense of perception and very willingly accept invited guests into the home, but will be alert with strangers. Its size and muscle structure make it very athletic and an ideal addition for an active family. The mature size and strength of a Daniff can be quite imposing for this reason alone the breed should not be considered a dog for beginning owners. 

Their weight is on average 100+ pounds.
As with all hybrids, the appearance and size of a Daniff is representative of the sire and dam and their ancestry. Puppies from AKC parents (again consider the parents adherence to the breed standard) will normally be much larger than the average puppy, 3 to 4 pounds at birth. Male Daniffs, at the end of their first year, will be between 30-32 inches tall and the female will be proportionally smaller. Daniffs, like most giant breeds, do not reach their full adult size until the end of their second year. At the point expect males to be about 32-34 inches tall at the shoulder. Normal weight for a male should be between 115lbs and 130lbs and females will be proportionately smaller. Care should be given so that a Daniffs weight does not exceed 135lbs as this could potentially cause health problems.

Hey so I was asked what our cute Daniff puppy is! 

We got Dali the beginning of Fall last year!! I gave in to letting her be an inside dog & it honestly was a good decision! She is still pretty wild since she is only 8 months old! She is 2' 2.5" tall & 2' 11" long!! I'm not sure on weight. I don't own a scale & she's probably break it!! Ha :) 

She really is a sweetheart!

She loves the boys!! She still tends to knock over Peyton! He's not to stable on his feet anyways! I completely agree with Daniff's are easily trained, but can be VERY stubborn. She's learning lots though! 


  1. Awww! I'm so happy I asked that question now! He is too cute! Thank you so much for this post!

  2. Your Welcome! I needed to do one I can't believe I never have!!

  3. What a lovely dog! She will provide the best friendship for your kids.

  4. She looks like she's so good with your boys! I'm so tiny I can't imagine being next to a dog that big haha.

  5. What a big dog she is but she's seems like a sweetheart so that's good, especially with little kids.
