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.

Amelia and Felix
Amelia is the mom of Felix, they get along wonderfully and are very pleasant dogs.
Both are Plott Hound mixes. Amelia is a very smart and wonderful mother that looks out for her puppy. She is very happy with other dogs and loves to play with them and then relax for a short time, sitting on top of her crate instead of in it. She loves to be with people and is very busy but there is not a mean bone in her body. She is very sweet and will snuggle up to be right next to a person and just put her face out for kisses. she loves that very much. Amelia is so petite and gentle and delicate in her mannerisms, it is lovely to see her move because she is very agile.
Felix is very small and delicate like his mom. It is amazing that they both ended up together in a shelter despite arriving at different times and both were not killed thru euthanasia. They do love to be together but also i have seen them apart at different times. Amelia lets Felix go off on his own and he ( like human kids) enjoys the freedom of other dogs and doing things by himself. They differently have a lot of energy but also are both loving and have some down time at times. Once you see them you will be amazed at their grace and just how beautiful both dogs are. Young children are OK with Amelia and Felix.
Monty is a 4 year old Blue Merle Great Dane. He is good with little dogs; his response to medium to large dogs is unknown but he may just need proper introduction to them. He ignores cats and is great with people.
Beau is a tan and white Greyhound/Dane mix. His paperwork says he is about 5 yrs old . Beau is good with other dogs but does guard food and treats against other dogs. He is very devoted to his owner and would do really well with a quiet home and would do well with kids over 10 yrs old.
Beau is very good about crating and is nondestructive in a home and walks well on a leash. His response to cats is unknown but he seems to mostly ignore them.
He would make a wonderful companion for an older couple with a laid back house. He is truly a great dog and has been not a problem at all, he just wants to hang out with his family. Beau came up from South Carolina, he belonged to an elderly couple that had to go into a nursing home and could not keep him any longer. Beau is very good with people and would be an asset to any home.
