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.
The Other Charlie
Charlie is an energetic young Dane/Pointer mix. He is a guy who will be happiest in a home with another dog to keep him company. He has his moments of energy and needs someone to take him for walks and runs but also likes to lay around and be near his people.
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.
Lilly is an 8 year old female Mastiff/Dane mix. She is good with medium to large dogs and she ignores cats and sometimes wants to play with them. Lilly is protective of her home so a busy home is not very good for her. She is very loving to the family she is with. no kids please since she is protective of her home; a quite home is preferred for her.
She is a devoted dog and very little stress and care needed for her.Lilly would do well with an older couple. She is crate trained and walks very well on a leash. She knows commands and she is very gentle with you and not destructive in the home in the slightest. She was an owner surrender.
* Turn ons: loves walks, sleeping, playing with her family and dogs.
*Turn offs: very busy places, young kids, pills of any kind.
Seth is a 4.5 year old Mastiff/Great Dane mix. He is excellent with people. Seth is a very high energy dog. He would do really well with a young couple that goes camping and doing out door activities.
Seth is good at crate training but needs a correction collar for walking because he will pull. He is very loving and can be the only dog in a home or needs some time for introductions to another dog. Seth was a stray brought into a shelter up north. He is very playful and enjoys soccer, though he cheats by picking up the ball in his mouth.
*Turn ons are long walks and hikes thru the woods, camping, playing ball.
*Turn offs are cats, small 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.
Rooney is a Kentucky native but with a name like his you would have thought he was from Steeler country. He is great with dogs and loves people.
Rooney is very smart and is part Dane and part Shepard, as far as we know. He loves to show off his commands for you for a treat and is well behaved in the house. Rooney is crate trained but hasn’t needed it. We believe he would do better in a house without cats. He is good with kids 9 years on up and would love to be very active with his family on weekends doing outdoor activities.
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.
Mr. Patrick is a Great Dane/Mastiff mix. This handsome guy sat in a shelter over in Ohio for 6 months and no on looked at him. He is very good looking and I must say his personality is perfect. He loves to play with all the dogs and is very good around people. Older kids please over 12 because Mr. Patrick is very playful and full of energy. We figure Patrick to be about 3.5 yrs old. He is one of the most striking dogs we have in the rescue and he loves to snuggle up at night right by your side. He is not destructive in the house but will find a shoe now and then and it is a gonner.
Mr. Grover is a 3 year old beautiful male Great Dane. He is one of the most lovely Kentucky boys around.He loves other dogs and is ok with cats ( according to the foster down south).
I am sure that barbie q's and country music are not the only thing on this boy's mind. He loves to play and snuggle with everyone and is very very affectionate. Grover is just a very sweet loving dog with very submissive tendencies; he is a lover not a fighter. He is big and wiggly so no kids under 9 for their safety from getting pushed over and stepped on.
Angel is approximately three years old and was a stray that came from a high kill shelter in Kentucky. She gets along with all dogs and is very good with people.Angel loves to snuggle and likes kids. She is crate trained and really does better with another dog in the household. She walks ok on a leash and listens to several commands. Angel is a sweet, gentle girl who will be a great companion for....you maybe?
Lucy is a wonderful 4 year old LabraDane. She is excellent with infants on up and great with small dogs on up. She walks around the house with her leash in her mouth just in case you may want to take her for a walk or something.
Lucy is extremely gentle and loves any attention you give her. Her family is moving and has to surrender her back to our rescue. She is crate trained and loves the crate and has been very sweet with her special needs little boy in the family.
Lucy is just a happy girl who loves belly rubs, walks, and even runs though she doesn't last long (after a mile she pulls to come back home). She gets along with all dogs and I am pretty sure she would do ok with cats, (there are a lot of feral cats in this community and she chase them but she never hurts them). She is very submissive and walks very nice on the leash. She is housebroken and never had an accident in the house. She is a very smart girl, she figured out how to open doors and unlock a slide door so she could get out.
She absolutely loves kids. She is super gentle with them and she never left the family children's side while outside; always protecting him but without being aggressive.
