Sadie is a 1.5 year old spayed beautiful little girl that came to us from a shelter as a stray. She is very active and loves to learn new tricks. She loves to be as close to people as possible, she’s a true lap baby or cuddle buddy!!! Sadie likes to play, and talk, with her foster brothers & sisters. One of her favorite games is tug a war with her rope. Sadie will do best in a home with either a medium to large dog or with her person home most of the day. She is crate trained and house trained. Sadie also walks well on a leash and enjoys car rides





Update:  Goose has been neutered and is ready for adoption.  He will also need to go to a home with another dog preferably a female.  He will need an experienced adopter willing to help him gain confidence.  He is very food motivated and a quick learner.

Goose is one gorgeous little dude but don’t let his looks fool you, that boy has a mind of his own and is all puppy! He’s a 5 month old harlequin that came in with his brother Maverick from the shelter. He loves to play with his foster siblings and is wide open except when he’s sleeping! He is the epitome of a goofy Dane pup and will need a pretty experienced handler to help keep him reigned in as he will be a big boy! He loves everyone and everything but will try to charm you with his stunning looks to try to get out of trouble! He’s had two sets of puppy shots and has not yet been neutered due to his age. A fenced yard will be required.


Warren is a handsome 3-5 year old blue harlequin Dane. He was wandering the woods between two counties before finally being caught in a trap that was specially made for a giant dog. It is unclear exactly how long this boy was on his own but as you can see from the pictures, he was hit by a car. He came to our rescue at the end of May where we took him straight to the vet. He was 104lbs and not very sure about people. Miraculously, he was heartworm negative and fecal was also negative. X-rays confirmed his leg was broken and we took him up to VSRP. They told us since the break was anywhere from 3-4 weeks old that it would be too complicated to go in and they would have to re-break it and set it so we did an external fixator instead. (They also neutered him while under anesthesia.) The fixator stayed on for about 9 weeks and his leg was finally healed enough for it to be removed. He did develop pressure sores on his leg so he had to wear a soft bandage for an additional 4 weeks. Being that he was so nervous about everything, he did really well with the weekly bandage changes those final weeks. Warren is currently living with male and female dogs and has come a long way since being in a foster home. He would likely do best with a small pack(1-2 other dogs, preferably a laid back female) as he gets easily overwhelmed with a lot of playing going on and also dog parks would not be good for him. He was probably an outside dog to begin with as he would go potty in his crate. Every now and then he will have an accident but overall, he’s 99% crate-trained. He will bark to let you know he needs out. He will also still mark every now and then inside but with re-direction he knows to run to the door. I think feeding time is his favorite activity! We fed him frequently to put weight back on him and he’s a very healthy 130lbs now but he doesn’t like to share his food and will need to eat separately from any other dogs. He’s doing better with noises and not quite as nervous but will need a dog-savvy owner. He’s a typical Dane and will lean and nudge you for attention. He isn’t a dog that enjoys being out and about and prefers to stay in his safety zone so a non-busy household would be best for him. Warren was originally introduced to a cat at the vet and didn’t respond much but as he’s gotten comfortable in his foster, he’s shown more interest in the resident cat and will chase so we think he’d do best without cats or smaller dogs. Being that he was running and had to be caught with a trap, we will require a fenced in yard for him, nothing under 5-6 ft though as we feel he would jump a 4 foot fence. He is still working on leash walking and gets nervous with the many noises in the neighborhood. He’s done really well but will still require a home with patience as he’s learning to trust. We also feel that a home without kids would be best for him. He’s a special boy looking for a special home. Applications can be found on our website and any further questions can be emailed to us, greatdanerescuealliance@gmail.com.


Sully is a 3 yr old neutered male that came to us from a shelter. He loves walks, shaking stuffed toys, ropes and cuddles. He is filled with personality and although he has claimed one of my couches of his own, he still shares. He likes other dogs but needs to warm up to them and can get a little grumbly if they are too high energy. He gives the best hugs and is an awesome body pillow at nighttime. He has been around cats a couple times and although curious he did not get aggressive. He is as sweet as he looks with anyone, good with kids (has been surrounded with kids 6 and up being loud and he just let them pet him) and has a kind heart. He’s a sweet boy looking for a forever home of his own.
