Blue Great Danes

With their towering height and elegant stance, Great Danes are commonly known as gentle giants. They come in various majestic, beautiful colors, including brindle, black, fawn, mantle, merle, harlequin, white, chocolate, silver, blue, and others.  

In this post, we’ll be examining the blue Great Dane, letting you know how they got their blue shade, the cost of getting one, and where to get it.

The Blue Apollo of Dogs

Also known as the blue apollo of dogs, blue Great Danes are some of the coveted Great Danes around. They get the blue coloration that makes them unique from parents with recessive blue genes. While they may have blue eyes from birth, this will change as they grow older. With their shiny steel coats, blue Great Danes are cute and eye-catchy.

The Size of Blue Great Danes

The height and weight of blue Great Danes are similar to those of their cousins with different coat shades. As with other Great Danes, male adult blue Great Danes can weigh between 140 and 180 pounds and reach between 30 and 37 inches in height, while females often weigh between 110 and 150 pounds and stand at 28 to 33 inches.

Blue Great Dane Health Issues

Blue Great Danes have similar health concerns like other Great Danes. Some of the health conditions they’re prone to include bloat, cardiomyopathy, cancer, hip dysplasia, and bone disease. That’s why we recommend supplements with natural ingredients for your blue Great Danes to help reduce their risk of coming down with these ailments.


Big, well-mannered, and beautiful, blue Great Danes are loved, and many want them around for long. Unfortunately, blue Great Danes don’t live as long as smaller dogs, living between 8 - 10 years. Though the Blue Great Dane is know to be the smallest of the Danes and gets a longer life span then others. To get a blue Great Dane with improved chances of longevity, it pays to buy from a certified breeder such as Great Lake Danes. It would also be great to get your pet from a farm that issues health guarantees.

Cost of a Blue Great Dane

The cost of a blue Great Dane varies depending on the location, breeder practices and certification, pedigree, and other factors. You can expect to get one for between $1300 to $3000. But generally, adopting a blue Great Dane is way cheaper than buying one. That, however, comes with many challenges as you risk getting a dog with health and behavioral issues.
