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.

My name is Sherlock and trouble is my game. I love, love, love to play all day and sleep all night. I am a puppy and working on crate training ( which I am doing well) and I am about 6 to 9 months old. I am a lab/Dane mix and I haven't met a shoe I didn't like. I love toys and do need to work on my commands but I know I will find a nice family to help me work thru them soon. I came in all the way from South Carolina so I am a southern boy that loves barbeques, sweet tea and all the pork I can get, but then again I will just about eat anything so I am not too picky. I hear that I am going to Camp Bow Wow South soon to play with all the other dogs, so look for me there soon.
Miss Daisy is a 6-year-old black female Great Dane from Ohio. She was turned into an Ohio rescue, transferred to us, and we are lucky enough to have her in our lives. Daisy is just an absolute delight to anyone that meets her, she is excellent with dogs, kids, cats and everything in this world. She was owned by an older couple for the first 4 years of her life, then they gave her to a man on Craigslist and he had her for about a year, then had to move in with his daughter. The daughter had a baby so they kept Daisy down in the basement for several months until they contacted a rescue to take her. This is one Great Great Great Great Dane. She is just one of the most easy going dogs we have.
Hello, my name is Jeb and badness is my game. I am from South Carolina and am alleged to be 6 months old but my foster mom thinks I am more like 6 months old. I still do a lot of puppy things like that rule "everything is mine."
I don't want you to cry but my ears were cut off by my owner. My rescue thinks that I was going to be used for dog fighting in the ring as a practice doggie. I have a long scar on the back of my right leg. I don't like cats much but that is because where I came from; they taught me to not like cats. I need some training so I can grow up very sweet and loving. I love to give kisses and I play with all the other dogs here at the rescue.
I love to give kisses and I play with all the other dogs here at the rescue. I am crate trained now and house-broken and am very, very smart. My rescue believes that I am a Shepard/something small mix and I weigh about 45 pounds, if that. I know I am on a Dane site but I was brought to the shelter as a stray and the rescue had to step up and save me from being put down for space. They figured that since I made it out of a bad situation I didn't need to come into another one.
Walter is just a delightful doggie and loves to play with all the dogs he meets. He is a mix but mostly GreatDane as you can see with those long legs. He takes direction well and wants to please everyone. Older kids are a must for Walter and his response to cats is unknown. Walters is crate-trained but great left out of the crate as well. Walter is 2 years old.
My name is Miss Lucy and I am a Great Dane mix. I am about 5 years old but it is hard to tell since I i was a stray.

I am crate-trained and love attention all the time. I love to show my belly and love to just be a lap dog.
