We have been involved with Great Danes since 1980, when Humberto had the opportunity to own his first Dane. Since then, he started attending dog shows and visiting Dane breeders. It was only in 1990 that we acquired our foundation bitch, and a serious and dedicated work was initiated in order to establish a bloodline.



Crossdanes Kennel does not raise Danes for commercial purposes, and our primary goal is to improve the quality of our products, thus contributing to the development of the Great Dane. We prioritize a physically and mentally balanced Great Dane, and longevity is very important to us.

Each puppy that leaves our home to their new owners, will be monitored and supervised through its entire life, unless the owner shows a great deal of resistance. No puppy will leave our home, unless we feel comfortable that we found the best home possible for them.

Humberto Cruz is a CBKC / FCI licensed judge for Great Danes since 1993, and is former director of Clube Paraense do Dogue Alemão, former director of Kennel Clube do Estado do Pará and Director of Sociedade Paulista do Dogue Alemão (GDC of São Paulo). Beatriz has been the one who takes most care of the dogs, and is the pillar of Crossdanes successful development.



We are always available to those who love and respect the Great Dane,

    The Apollo of Dogs.
