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.
Zeus is a two year old terrier mix. He is a wonderful dog, very gentle and very good with other dogs. He likes people and gets along with kids well. He is crate trained and walks well on a leash. No cats or little critters at all with Zeus please.
Zeus loves to play ball and fetch and really enjoys being with people. He likes to sit right next to you or on your feet.
Zeus is crate trained and very easy to like. He is a licker and loves to give kisses. Zeus is strong and would do well with a correction collar. He loves the outdoors and would do very well with a couple that love to do outdoor activities. He was a stray brought into a shelter in North Carolina.
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.
Look out world I am here to lick you to death. My name is Paige and I came all the way in from Indiana. I was in a shelter for a really long time and then the vet decided to keep me at the office until I got adopted so I wasn't in danger of being put down. I small to medium dogs and am ok with cats; I had a best friend that was a cat named Daniel. I love to snuggle and give nibble kisses once I know you.
I am cute as a button and I am crate trained and very good in the house. I really love treats so that I can keep up my girlish figure. I am a great Dane mix and probably mixed with mastiff or St. bernard. I am 3 years old and weigh about 110 pounds but who is counting? I am fearful of new people that come into my home but especially men. I don't like uniforms or costumes or hoods and stuff because I can't see your face but it's not uncommon for a dog to not like uniforms or such things. I love to play and am very good on a leash etc. I would say I would do best in a very laid back home with a couple that understands and is patient with me.
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.
Mr. Bowie is a Southern gentleman that came to us from a different rescue that had him when he was just a little pup. He is a lovely 2-year-old dane/hound mix that is good with kids and other dogs and is just waiting for his family home.
He can't tell you anything because he is deaf but it does not hinder him at all and he loves dogs and to play like any other doggie. He was adopted to a not so nice family in the beginning but was taken off them and then adopted out again to another family but his person went to college so he found himself again returned. Bowie is quiet and very well behaved in the house. His rescue asked us to take him because of the rough start he had.
A wonderful person donated money towards bowie's care so he will come with a collar that states he is deaf and also a vibrating collar that will help him to look for his person to get a command. He must go to someone that has a fence or a strong tie out no electric fences please.
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.
