| As with all hybrids, the appearance and size of a Daniff is representative of the sire and dam and their ancestry. Puppies from AKC parents (again consider the parents adherence to the breed standard) will normally be much larger than the average puppy, 3 to 4 pounds at birth. Male Daniffs, at the end of their first year, will be between 30-32 inches tall and the female will be proportionally smaller. Daniffs, like most giant breeds, do not reach their full adult size until the end of their second year. At the point expect males to be about 32-34 inches tall at the shoulder. Normal weight for a male should be between 115lbs and 130lbs and females will be proportionately smaller. Care should be given so that a Daniffs weight does not exceed 135lbs as this could potentially cause health problems.
