Breeding Beautiful Great Dane puppies from our home to yours
We at Divergent Great Danes are a small 10-acre family farm in Central Florida just 45 minutes West of Orlando and 1 hour North of Tampa. We specializes in and are committed to producing quality, AKC Registered Great Dane puppies. We have owned great Danes for over 30 years and have bred Great Danes for over 18 years. We strive to breed for conformation, health, temperament, and longevity. Our goals is to produce both AKC Traditional colored Great Danes as well as Non Traditional colored Danes that meet breed standards. We are not a large breeding facility. We have a small program which allows us to emphasize excellence and selectively breed our Danes.
Our Great Dane puppies are typically structurally large boned and heavy. These are traits that we look for when searching for our new foundation breeders. Our mission is to provide healthy Danes that can be enjoyed by their new families for many years.
We specialize in solid colors as well as Harlequin, Mantel , Merle and Brindle in beautiful shades of Chocolate, Blue,
Lilac-(Silver), Fawn, Blue Fawn, Chocolate Fawn and Black, We are extremely excited to be adding Tan point to our program.
It is interesting to note that nontraditional colors in Danes have been around for century's although many breeders have worked diligently to eradicate them from the gene pool. We believe all colors are worth preserving. Over the last several years we have seen tremendous strides being made in color genetics. Color testing is now very attainable allowing us to test for specific color genes. We are extremely excited to be implementing these colors into our program.
Great Danes are truly a large and noble breed, affectionately referred to as a gentle giant. They may look imposing but are extremely good natured, affectionate, sweet, and loyal. As a breed, they have a strong desire to please which makes them easy to train. With their lovable personalities and easy temperaments, they make an excellent pet for any household.
For many years Great Danes have been recorded on rare occasions to show Tan points. The gene that causes this mutation is recessive to fawn in the agouti series. It can be carried by any Dane but it is rare in the Great Dane gene pool. It was assumedly unlikely two tan-point parents would ever meet to produce a tan-point Danes. This all changed with genetic color testing which has enabled us to identify the gene and cross dogs that carry the recessive gene. Both parents have to show or carry the Tan Point gene to produce Tan Point showing puppies which makes them uncommon. .
