1. The Great Dane Dog Marker
Inscription.  The symbol of our company since 1931, the Great Dane dog is the most elegant and distinguished of the giant type dog. A true Great Dane breed is spirited and courageous, yet always friendly and dependable. These special attributes coupled with majestic, powerful strides make the Great Dane an exceptionally unique breed.
Originally bred in Germany for hunting and demanding work in European coal mines, the Great Dane possesses an integral heroic quality, and we are proud to have it represent the foundations on which our trailers are built: strength, endurance and dependability.
 
Erected by Great Dane Trailers.
