There are two coat colors for the Great Danes:

  • Fawn
  • Harlequin


  • New petting animation by Amat Animations
  • Natural or cropped ears
  • Texture-changing collar
  • Toes
  • Toy System 2 - realistic carrying of toys, backwards compatible with most old toys.


To change between the natural (down) ears and the cropped (up) ears, use the new “ears” command with “up” or “down” to specify which ears you want your dog to have. For example:

fido ears up


fido ears down

You can change ears as frequently or infrequently as you wish. The ears command is owner-only.


The Great Danes are equipped with a new pre-textured leather collar. There are two leather patterns and, between the two, there are 40 colors. You can change the the collar using the new collar command. The options are collar 0 through collar 40. For example:

fido collar 21

Collar 0 and collar 15 are both white leather, so you can choose one of these and then use a color command (like you do on many of the other dogs) to create a custom collar color for yourself. For example:

fido color 128 0 0

Which will put a deep red color over the collar. There is an explanation of the RGB Color commands and some more examples on the web site.

To remove a custom color, use the tint command to reset the color or to hide the collar completely, like you do with other dogs. For example:

fido tint -1

Which removes any custom color, or

fido tint -2

Which hides the collar. You put it back again with tint -1 or any color or collar command.


That’s right, check out this dog’s feet. Each one-prim foot sports a full compliment of individual toes.


If you want your new dog to drop the toy that he is carrying, you can tell him to drop it, like this:

fido drop [name of toy]

The toy may disappear completely. If you want him to carry it again, you will need to make sure one is rezzed and tell him to take it. You can get the dogs’ default toys for free from our Information Kiosks near the Clinics in any VKC Dog Park.


The Great Danes are not transferable. If you wish to give one as a gift, please use the Gift Vendors in our VKC Dog Parks.

You can also send a dog as a Gift from our Marketplace Store.
