Our Story

In July 2014 me and my wife decided to bring a fawn colored Great Dane puppy into our lives and named him Marmaduke. Since then we have fallen more and more in love with this breed. So much so that when one of our friends told us they could no longer take care of their female Dane, we jumped at the chance to have another Gentle Giant in our home. Then It was time to find more space so we relocated to the beautiful Ozark mountains where we found 40 acres in the woods where our Danes had ample room to roam. With all this new found room they bred and we had our first litter of puppies and the wonderful experience that comes along with caring for ten tiny Danes. So we began really researching our favorite breed, and after talking to many fellow breeders we learned so much we invested in some AKC registered dogs so we could provide our customers with the healthiest, highest quality Dane possible. Today we are building our Facility and working on our USDA and Missouri state licenses to be a Licensed Animal Care Facility, as we want to provide the best space possible for our Danes to breed in.
