JaVale loves spending time with his Great Danes, Charlie and Chill.

These dogs have a lot in common with their owner. They have enormous bodies and great height. Great Danes are one of the world’s tallest dog breeds. Charlie tops out 6 foot 1 inch tall and Chill is slightly smaller at 5 foot 11 inches.

But Charlie and Chill’s large and imposing appearance belies their friendly nature. Like most Great Danes they are “gentle giants”. JaVale likes to keep them active and takes them on hikes with him.  Given their large size, Great Danes continue to grow (mostly gaining weight) longer than most dogs. Even at one year of age a Great Dane will continue to grow for several more months.
