Pennsylvania State Dog


Pennsylvania Dog

Great Dane

State of Pennsylvania

Great Dane:

The Great Dane was a hunting breed that changed to a working breed. Pennsylvania was a hunting Commonwealth that became a leading working community. The Great Dane came from England just as did William Penn, the founder of this Commonwealth. The Great Dane is pictured in a painting in the Governor's reception room by Pennsylvania artist Violet Oakley as the "Best Friend" of William Penn. Naming an official dog would recognize the service and loyalty of all dogs in Pennsylvania.
