thank you all. i was lucky enough to meet dudley when we picked memphis up. and boy oh boy. hes nearly as tall as me. he could almost stare me right in the eyes... how scary! Beautiful dog though.. and Brook was very sweet, a typcal example of what i picture a dane to be. I think thats where memphis gets his sweetness, and looks (and size) from dad

Wow, yea he's a huge boy and so pretty.  My friends dane was 250# which I had a hard time believing but I guess they do get that big! My breeder had a 2 yr old female that was 'small' for a female I guess but I thought she was huge, I can't imagine standing to next to one THAT large, incredible.

How old is Dudley? How is his health?

My friend has a super-sized Dane like that, and her dog has some serious health problems and has to take quite a few daily medications. :'( I hope Dudley doesn't suffer the same issues. When I see people breeding Danes that big it makes me a little nervous. :-\ He is very handsome though.

well i know dudley was in great health but had produced some bad pups so i do believe he was neutered. memphis was a lucky one. which is why he is neutered!!!! for just in case reasons. But yes, im 5'1" and this dog nearly could look me in the eye on all fours! he STOLE doorknobs just because he was bored. haha he was a great dog. hilarious...
yes, i do think 220 is big, but he was VERY thick, and from Europe... he is where memphis gets his thickness... and such dark mask too

My friends dane was 250# which I had a hard time believing but I guess they do get that big!

Yeah, I wouldn't believe that for a minute.  Anything over 200 pounds is very, very heavy for a dane.  Gibson, the tallest dane on record at 42 inches, only weighs 175 pounds, but he does have a slim build.  Even on Gibson, 250 would be morbidly obese.  Dudley's 40 inches and 220 pounds is very unusual, but from his pictures he looks pretty thick, so that may be accurate or close.  Plus, Jo has seen him, so it is more believable to me.

Buddy (our dane/mastiff mix) is a little over 36 inches tall and he is FAT and has a big ol' mastiff head, and he still weighs "only" about 215 pounds.  People with big dogs tend to exaggerate a lot when they are talking about their dogs' height and weight.  I don't know why it's a status symbol.  I'm embarrassed that my dog weighs this much! :-[

Yeah, it seems quite excessive, I read somewhere that danes larger than the breed standard are 'more prized.'  I tend to think she was exaggerating though, she also said he went through 10 lbs of food a day and I thought how on earth can she even afford to feed him, she also has a chow.  I saw a pic of the dane once and couldn't tell how large (they all look very large to me) or fat he might have been but I guess maybe fat if he ate or even could consume that much. ..just doesn't seem possible. :-\
