NOT a Great Dane.
27 July 2000 | by (southern california) – See all my reviews

Even though the synopsis states the dog of the house is a Great Dane, it is NOT. The dog is actually a small/medium mixbreed of some kind, which only went up to the casts' knees! We were disappointed, having spent over six months to track this title down. Still a cute Chase vehicle, though.
