A black and white Great Dane shows its true nature towards a baby in a playpen, melting hearts across social media.

Captioned, "Biggie and Smalls are at it again", the touching video was shared by the Great Dane’s owner, TikToker Miranda Underwood.

Gentle giants

Known for their affectionate demeanour, Great Danes are often cherished members of families, particularly those with young children and babies. Despite their imposing size, they typically have a calm and patient disposition, making them ideal companions for households with children.

In the heart-melting clip, the baby lies in a playpen as the Great Dane approaches with evident curiosity and tenderness. Under the watchful eyes of Miranda, the colossal canine leans into the playpen and gently sniffs the baby, eliciting gleeful giggles from the little one.

Training and socialisation 

Proper training and socialisation are important for Great Danes to ensure their good behaviour around children. By instilling basic commands and exposing them to different situations and people early on in their lives, you can help ensure these big dogs are always well-behaved around youngsters.

We are sure that these two will be best friends forever.

We urge Wamiz readers to always be cautious when letting a pet play with a child. No matter how sweet pets can be, they may sometimes feel uncomfortable with a child's rough play and children can’t always pick up on that. Better safe than sorry, always supervise interactions between a child and an animal!
