Great Danes Available from the PA Great Dane Rescue
If you're looking to adopt a Great Dane, you've come to the right place. Pennsylvania Great Dane Rescue is looking for homes in the Pittsburgh, Allegheny County, and Western Pennsylvania areas for a variety of Danes. If you are not in our area, please contact us anyway, we've adopted Great Danes to new homes in many areas beyond our base region in Western PA.
Look below for the Great Danes currently in the Pennsylvania Great Dane Rescue system. If you are considering adding a Dane to your home, why not adopt a Great Dane from a rescue instead of buying a Dane from a breeder? You may find that you will be much happier with a full grown Great Dane rather than going through the trouble of training a Great Dane puppy. Your home may be the perfect place for one of our rescue Danes, contact us today to discuss your new Great Dane.
Unless otherwise specified, ALL Danes adopted from the PA Great Dane Rescue will be fully vetted, spayed or neutered, and heartworm tested and heartworm free.
Liv is an 8 year old female Great Dane. She must be in a home without any other animals. Liv has gone thru a lot of training with the foster family. She is loveable and wants to please her adoptive family. She was an owner surrender because they had cats and she didn't like them.
*Also, a small bit of history on Liv is that her name came from her owner going thru chemotherapy and living through her treatment. Liv was named in celebration of life for her owner. Liv has been with us the longest and is loved by all of us. She is the most beautiful Hallie we have had on our site. Kids over 10 for liv as she is wanting a break from very young kids.
Brindle and his girlfriend Belle have not had an easy life at all. They came up from South Carolina where they were both chained to trees in a back yard until the animal control officers confiscated them both. They were scheduled to die and we were going to pull Belle and could not leave poor Brindle behind.
He is a lovely lab mix brindle dog who is very affectionate and loves and jumps and kisses and becomes so wonderful when you talk to him or go to let him outside or feed him or just anything you do for him is wonderful to him. He does well with quiet dogs and loves people and kids. He is crate trained and walks well on a leash. Brindle is approximately 60 pounds and is about 3 years old.
Caldwell is a handsome 2 yer old southern boy from North Carolina . He is a Labradane mix and he wants to show off his physique to everyone that comes past him. He will not stop wiggling until you pet him and give him some loving.
Caldwell loves to play with other dogs and likes kids to play ball with him. He is very smart and is good at reading everyone and wants them to know that. Caldwell is a real goofball and it seems to show every time a camera is around.
He is crate trained and very good about sharing things. He was scheduled to be put down at the shelter and the rescue was good enough to call us at Pa Great Dane Rescue.
Meet Raven; Raven is a 5 1/2 year old Dane/black Shepard mix. She spent the first 5 years of her life in the back yard of her families home in West Virginia until her family moved and decided to leave her behind.
Raven gets along with all dogs and loves to play all the time. She is crate trained and has been around children 7 and up. No cats for Raven but dogs are quite welcome. She is a beautiful girl and she is playful and just wanting a family of her own. Raven will listen nicely and does redirect very well. She would love to play ball with a family and snuggle up next to them on a couch.
Elsa is a 4 year old special needs gal all the way from West Virginia. She is a pretty special girl, she loves to play with the other dogs and is great in the house now. She likes her crate and is pretty bad about getting up in the am to go outside as she is most comfy in her crate wrapped in warm blankies. Elsa sees partially out of one eye and does here loud noises. Her response to cats is unknown and we ask for larger kids for her because she does like to play with her owners. She often gets very excited to play with tug toys and stuffed animals and she loves people.
Dane is a one year old Great Dane. He is sweet but in a "I am still a teenager" kind of way so he needs training. No kids for Dane and cats unknown but he is great with other dogs, is crate trained and very good with women and warms up to men. He is absolutely a puppy so again we are following the 4 rules here with him; see below:
1. No kids, that includes "grandkids; no kids under 16 yrs old ( even where the kid is 4 but "is very experienced with large breed dogs." No no no no kids.
2. He needs training, not training in your kitchen to make him sit and stay; he knows that already. You need to be willing to work with a professional trainer so that if he doesn't want to do something that day you will know how to get him to do it.
3. He warms up to men. This means no party to welcome the dog to your house, no boys fraternities, no family with 8 boys in it. Take time with him he is very big and needs to be broken in with men.
4. He is on the big side. I get a lot of " I want the biggest one." No you don't. If you can not handle a medium Dane then you can not handle a large Dane. This means walking them and controlling them if they want to walk over to that cute little poodle and eat them. This means that you need to be able to demonstrate that you can handle a 140 pound dog.
If you can fill all the requirements then Dane is your guy. He is a very handsome, growing bouncing baby boy that loves to snuggle, bark, eat, and pooh so congratulations, it's a boy.
Maycee is a 5-year-old Dane/Catahoula mix. A shelter that had had her for a very long time asked if we would take her so she would not be put down. She is lovely and loves to play with other dogs, loves women and takes a short time to warm up to men. She is very good in the house, crate trained and great once she gets some time to warm up.
Maycee is crate trained and very pleasant. She does do some resource guarding of food and toys but quickly redirects with one command. She walks nicely on a leash and is very laid back.
Hello guys, my name is Opie, you know like in the saying "Opie dokie?" Ok so it is kind of like that. So anyways I am the most handsome Great Dane in the world, yes i won that title last year and it still holds true.
I am 6 years young and I love love love to do things my way, kind of like good old Frankie blue eyes. I love people and older kids, and oh yeah forgot to tell you that I am a special needs guy,; I can't hear. I do come with a vibrating collar and I do look at you for signs.
I love to help my owners with the cleaning of the dishes, surfing the counters for clean ups and I really love to get any fleas off my masters with my flea biting to help assist them to be rid of those nasty fleas; I love grooming my owners and sitting on the couch with them. Sometimes I play by myself if no one else is around and I do have a habit of trying to ride up in the front of the car, on the dash that is, you know I feel it is better to have a Dane head there than a plastic Jesus anyday. I am a little bit high strung if my owners aren't around but not destructive at all. i do enjoy every once in a while shredding up a blanket.
My hang ups are little dogs and no one is sure about me with cats. I am a West Virginia boy and I do howl with a bit of an accent but I left my farmer overalls behind for the bright lights of Pittsburgh, PA. I am so great and everyone tells me so.
Hi my name is Deacon. I am a 1.5 year old Dane, ha ha fooled you, I look like I am a Beagle mix, so don’t ask why I am on this Dane site but the ones that sent me to this rescue said that I looked like a little mini Dane. Yeah ok so I am cute as a button and I have the pictures to prove it. I walk on my hind legs for treats, I have something called a Napoleon complex which is really funny because i have never been to France.
I do not like big dogs, so as you can imagine I am doing really well here in a Great Dane rescue; got to keep everyone in line I guess. I belonged to an elderly family and the couple did a lot of traveling so I was stuck in daycare more than at home, so hence I am here now with a rescue instead of the shelter I was at. I get along with all the ladies and do get along with most dogs except the really big ones. I like to challenge them to a duel and I am going to win. I haven’t met a bunny I didn’t like ( in a stew or on a plate ) so no little animals for me please.
I love people and am willing to do anything to let them see how cute I am. I am crate trained walk great on a leash and I love kids and people. I stop for any picture anyone wants to take of me. I am about 22 pounds of hunk of hunk of burning love and can show you if you like.
Ok world here I come; I am a hometown boy from West Virginia but you would not know it from the way I handle myself with the ladies. I love the girl doggies but seem to want to challenge the boys for their affections so I would do better with a female dog in the bunch. My name is Ozzie and I am the handsomest doggie east of the Rockies( ok whole country but I didn't want to brag).
I am confident, know commands and will choose to do them when I want to, but that is my age showing. I am 1.5 years old and have a lot of living to do. Cats are unknown around me and older kids only. I was given up because kids liked to throw rocks at me while they passed on their bikes so a fenced in yard is warranted since I broke the chain I was on to run after the bikes.
I am crate trained and camera shy. I love to play with my girlfriend Raven in the back yard. I will do anything for a cookie so make sure you have one ready for me when you come to visit me. I am a big guy so I need lots of room and someone that isn't going to let me get away with too much. I know my charm will woo you and you will be putty in my hands.
