It's never easy having a condition as severe or rare as Bella's. Luckily, she has her great Great Dane, George, to help her through her day. While he might not be as unique as this surfing service dog, he makes all the difference in the world to Bella.
First recognized by the American Kennel Club in 1887, Great Danes have made a reputation for themselves as gentle giants. The breed is most commonly described as friendly, patient and dependable, the perfect temperament for a service dog. While they obviously require a lot of food due to their size, they are generally fairly low maintenance. Their short coat requires only occasional grooming and they are not incredibly high-needs in the exercise department, either.
