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.
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.
No cats or small dogs in the house for Caldwell and he should only be around older children.
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.
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.
Maycee is undergoing training and is not yet available for adoption.
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. I should be in a home with older kids.
I don't really like little dogs but I've been around 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.
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.
Hello my name is Ginger. Well it was changed from an Italian name and since i don't speak Italian much they decided to call me Ginger .
I am a wonderful friendly gal that loves to play and eat and play and eat and play and eat. I like other dogs but cats are not my thing. I love people and kids over 9 years old because I take treats very vivaciously. I am crate trained and my puppy making days are over though I used to take care of puppies day in and day out.
I am a Pennsylvania gal and I love my ears rubbed. I love walks and love a laid back household to rest my bones in. If you are this kind of household than I am your gal. I am about 3 years old and considered a fawn color and by the way if you look at the Pennsylvania state dog that is my picture up there.
Hi my name is George; you know Georgie Porgie kissed the girls and made them cry, only I kissed the girls and made them pregnant. Yes that was my job alright, someone had to do it and I did it well but I hear that I am going into retirement soon. i am not sure what that entails but a free dental plan along with free and often milk bones would be so appreciated. I am a 4 year old harlequin male and I love the girls. I also love people, dogs of all kind but my response to cats is unknown. I am a special needs doggie because my hind legs turn in and hit each other at the knees (so no one is perfect but this does not hinder me at all. ) I was raised in a dog run and just let out to do my job. For the first time I am playing with all the dogs and just blending right in. I can now run and do things I could only dream about. It is like I am starting over and now learning the ropes of what it is like to be a dog. I am too sexy for myself and I just love life and love playing all day.
Hello i am a 2 year old very sensitive big guy named Zeus. I like other dogs but cats are unknown. Kids make me nervous so a really laid back house is right up my alley. I am very very sensitive so I need time to meet you and meet you again before I would come home with you; it takes me long to get over being left by my family. I am a lovely dog that just likes to lay back around the house and give my paw to someone. I am not destructive in the house and like men and women as well. I will let you do mostly anything like baths, ear cleanings and kisses but just need time to get over being left from my foster family; I really do take it to heart. I am a native Pittsburgh boy.
