The Danish Broholmer, native to Denmark, is a molosser type breed of dog. It is a guard dog breed named after a game-keeper who lived in the 1700s, Sehested of Broholm. The breed almost became extinct following World War II, but a group of Danish enthusiasts began to revitalize the breed in the 1970s.
The Danish Broholmer is an exceptionally large breed, weighing from 110 to 132 pounds. Its coat can be either golden or black; however only around 30 to 40 registered Broholmers are black, out of 800 to 1000 registered dogs. The breed is built to work and guard the family; it is large, yet good-natured.
