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.

Sprocket is a 2 year old Great Dane/Catahoula mix and he is one of my favorite dogs. Sprocket came in about 2 months ago; he was surrendered because he was very nervous around his owner's child and they were pregnant again so they had no choice but to surrender him. It was stated that it took a lot of time for him to warm up to men and he does prefer women but here at the house he sits on my husband's lap and is constantly standing near me to be with me.
He allows me to a full body exam without any difficulty and loves to play ball, with toys, and with anything he can do with my husband. The issue with sprocket is that he is in overdrive all the time with his mind because he is very very smart. Dogs like Sprocket are taking in all that is around them; it doesn't mean that they are bad dogs, just very much in a state that needs to be understood.
This kind of dog is one that will give his life for his owner. He is a very, very dedicated dog to his family. He is beautiful, he is very affectionate, and very playful. I love how much he always wants to learn and interact with me and my husband. He would be perfect for a single person that needs a devoted dog. Sprocket has lived with cats before and has not had an issue besides occasionally chasing but not harming them.
Blue is a mix of some sort. He is about 4 yrs old and he is great with people, including kids, and dogs, but no cats, he will not like them much. Blue pays attention to everything in the yard, including birds, cats and other little critters. He is good about crating and great about not being destructive in the house.
Blue needs work on the leash and a correction collar is a must. He is very aware of his surrounding and would love to be with a couple doing any kind of camping, baseball games, etc. Blue came from Georgia as a stray. He will guard food with other dogs but is getting better with this every day. He is coming along so much and doing so well from where he started. Blue is very smart.
Charlie is a 2-3 year old Mastiff/Great Dane mix that was rescued from a home in which he was neglected. This handsome boy needs to be in a home without any other pets and it is unknown how he is with children. Charlie is very sweet and lovable, he very much enjoys/wants the attention of people (especially those he lives with). He would do well in a home with a good amount of activity.
This mild mannered guy loves to play with toys and go for long walks but certainly loves his sleep too. He is crate and house trained, knows basic commands and listens well. Charlie is a very strong dog and can get quite excited on walks, but a tug of the leash gets him under control. Charlie is one of the sweetest dogs you could meet and it's clear that all he wants is the love of his owner.
Winston is a 1 1/2 yr old male Great Dane. His prior owners state he is very good with children. His response to cats is unknown. He is a typical “2 year old” who just loves to stay close to you, especially cuddling on the couch, and he loves to explore everything. He enjoys carrying around his stuffed animals in the house and outside when he goes potty.
He also is doing well with bringing them back in after a good galloping run with other dogs. He loves to put his head on my counter and watch me fill the water bowls for him and put them back on the floor. His favorite snacks to steal are saltines and ritzs and popcorn. We are working on a few commands since prior training has not been performed by prior owners. He has an extremely gentle disposition and minimal barking especially being in a pack with five other dogs.
Sweet Pea is a very very sweet 3 year old Kentucky girl that loves other dogs and people, including kids. No cats or chickens for this gal as she would chase them all day. Sweet Pea is a farm girl thru and thru but loves to do all the dog things like sitting on the floor beneath your feet. She is a beautiful hefty 75 pounds and is a lab/Dane mix probably, we're not sure. Sweet Pea was a stray scheduled for euthanasia recently and we got her in before it was too late.
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.
Jessie is a Lab/Great Dane mix and is about 90 pounds . He is a Kentucky boy that was a stray in a high kill shelter. He loves to show himself off and likes the bouncing trampoline for fun. Jesse thinks this is the way to bounce into someones heart.
From Jesse's foster family: Jesse is a big, playful boy who is still figuring out what it means to be part of a family. He is powerful, but walks pretty well on a leash. Jesse is great with other dogs of all sizes, but would love a home with another dog that likes to romp and run with him. He is cautiously optimistic about cats, and would do well in a home with them. Jesse picks up on commands very quickly and could blossom with a little training. We would love to see Jesse in a home with children, since he does love to play, but older children or those experienced with larger dogs would be best.
