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.

Hello my name is Thor and I am just that the Hammer of the Gods . Ok well I think I am a god but that is because I am young. They are saying I am about 2 years old but I am probably younger than that. I need some people manners but once you get to know me you will be very impressed with how high I can stand in place for a cookie.
I leannnnnnn very well. I just love to lean into things and knock them over. I am so good at that and my job description is just that; lean into everyone, every wall, every other dog, every sidewalk, even the air, which means I fall down on the ground. But I get up really really quick.
So anyways I was put into the drop box of the shelter in Fort Wayne, Indiana. Yes, it was a really really really big box. I have no idea how they stuffed me into it or why. Here I was being all pretty and trying to impress them with my leaning abilities and they put me into the overnight box at the shelter. I am great with dogs and a little submissive though and good with people but small kids may get knocked over so no kids under 8 years old. Cats are unknown to me and I do walk nice on a leash and I also take treats very very gently. That is me, the treat taker leaner.
My name is Mr. Wylie and I am a 4-year-old Labradane mix. I was found on the side of the road down in South Carolina with a collar embedded in my neck and I was heart worm positive and loaded with worms. I was in pretty bad shape but a wonderful rescue down there found me and took great care me and now I am up here looking for a home.
I like other dogs and cats are unknown sinceIi was not around them where I was. For the first timeIi am pretty much having some fun. Don't worry I will guard you against any balls with my trusty camouflage ball shooter or if i see a slipper I will chew it up to prevent it from harming you or your family. I tried to get a speck of food on the floor and got my head stuck in the elevated bowl feeders but I am free from that thing now, even thought it took an hour I managed to break free and have a break laying on the dog bed I attacked for fun.
