We used to own a boxer who was so protective of my daughter that he would try and stop her from playing on the swing..

My Dane is like that too. She's fixed and has never had pups, but she's always very motherly. When we put the Sullys outside, she'll lay down next to them and belly crawl towards them if they move too far from her. If they move too far apart from each other, she whines and gets very nervous and will go back and forth between the two standing guard until they come back together.

I've thought about videoing it but it would be long and boring. LOL

yeah my dog never had puppies ether maybe when female dogs dont have babies and come to a certain age they attach to other creatures and sort of protect them or take them under their wing i suppose?

I've had Danes for about 30 years and this is a normal trait...in the Old Days, Danes were the dogs of royalty for this reason...watching over the Royal Rug Rats.

When my daughter was a little girl, my two then danes, Zeus and Essy, would lay on the porch and constantly watch her and her friends play...when one of the other kid's parents would come to pick them up, Essy would stand by the children while Zeus would go find me or my then wife before the parents could get the child.

Very few of the parents complained...and once, when an abusive non-custodial parent tried to grab a child, it got kinda lively! His ex-wife was very appreciative.

@ Terry~ That is a very cool story also cool that your house was were the kids went.
@ addict your dog look like a herding type dog and I believe protecting and keeping watch over others is a trait they have and their breeds job.
