Great Danes can make for great pets. They are dependable, patient, and friendly. But for some, their biggest drawback is reflected in their name – they are huge. Standing on its hind legs, a Great Dane can be taller than its owner, and weigh up to 200 pounds. The male can be even heavier.

The whippet looks like a small greyhound and is almost as fast — it has been called “The Poor Man’s Racehorse.” Despite its energy level, it does fine as an apartment pet, as long as it gets regular exercise.
