Adoptable Danes

Our adoption area is flexible along the East Coast provided we can find a rescue in the area willing to perform a home visit for us.  In addition, you will still be required to come to the foster home of the dog with all of your current dogs and family members to adopt.

Our adoption fees are 350.00 for dogs.

SLeo is an 8 month old happy and energetic boy. He was an owner surrender and was in a few homes before coming to us. Leo likes to play outside with his toys and various sticks he may find. He will bring his toys back to you for you to throw them again. He is a very smart boy that aims to please. Leo is house and crate trained. He can be somewhat shy at times but he warms up quickly to visitors. He has been living in his foster home with teenage boys, another dane, a pit mix, 5 small dogs and cats. Leo plays a little too rough with small dogs so we feel he would do better with medium to large dogs. He likes to lay on the bed and watch tv while he squeaks his toys. He likes to be with his people and have his belly rubbed. He is your typical “leaner” especially if he is nervous. He will greet you with a wagging tail and sweet kisses. Leo is a good boy and deserves a patient, understanding and loving family. Leo would also do better with older children. A fenced yard is required as well as obedience training. Leo is neutered, tacked and current on vaccinations. Applications can be found on our website,


Murphy is a handsome 20 month old mantle. He was an owner surrender and has lived most his life outside. He has adjusted well to inside living and is potty and crate trained. He came in positive for Lyme’s and has been treated. He is neutered and current on vaccines and microchipped. He enjoys sitting on the couch looking at the squirrels and birds out the window and chasing the squirrels and birds outside. He has gone through a basic obedience class and passed his CGC (Canine Good Citizen); however, continued training will be required. He is a very smart boy that can open doors and lift latches on fences. He gets along with other dogs and loves to play rough. He would do best either as an only dog or with a female dog companion. He has no idea how big he really is,but what Dane does?! He walks well on a leash, loves to ride in a car, and wants you to touch him all the time. He has been around kids but is not currently living with them so older ones would be best. If you are interested in Murphy, please visit our website for an application:



Scout is a beautiful solid black female pup. She was purchased as a puppy from a backyard breeder and when the owner’s girlfriend became allergic, she was taken to the local shelter. Luckily we work with some great shelters and they immediately called us. We have her original vet papers from the owner and breeder, DOB is 11/13/15. We aren’t sure if she was kept crated most of the time as she’s very high energy and not a huge fan of the crate. She is crate trained and will go in willingly but it’s not her favorite place. The couch is of course!

Scout is currently living with male and female dogs, all large and would do best with larger dogs. She has a tendency to play rough. She’s got two speeds, snoring and full speed ahead. Scout is a little nervous with new people but she does warm up and enjoys attention. She’s done great with all new dogs she’s met. We did meet a few kids at the vet and she was fine with them but due to her high energy and the fact that she’s not currently living with kids, she would likely do better with older children (10 and up). She has not been exposed to cats, other than in crates at the vet but she would likely chase given the chance. Within the first week of being in her foster home, we did have a scare and she spent the night at the emergency vet as they thought she was bloating.

Luckily it ended up being food bloat but as a preventative we had her tacked when she was spayed. Recently she started knuckling on her front paw and not putting all her weight on the leg so she was taken to the vet and had x-rays which were fine. We took her to the specialist for an evaluation. The specialist didn’t find any abnormal orthopedic or neurological issues but did say she could have sprained her neck or shoulder area. He did find she’s got mild cervical facet changes which may cause issues for her later. Since seeing the specialist, she does still knuckle over some and still has lameness in her front leg.

Scout is current on all vaccines, heartworm preventative and has been microchipped. She’s a sweet girl looking for a family of her own! Applications can be found on our website,


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! He’s a 2 year 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 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.


Addie is a beautiful 3 year old (DOB: 3/3/14) brindle girl. She was an owner surrender and very well taken care of. She is well-behaved on a leash, loves to go for walks, and does great in a car. When she’s not cuddling up next to her human she is napping somewhere else. She likes to grab blankets and pillows to make herself comfortable when she sleeps. She loves to play tug and she prefers silent toys to play with. She is house-trained and rings a bell on the door when she needs to go out. Addie will likely bond with her human and show them unconditional love. As loving as she is towards humans, she also becomes protective and would thrive as an only dog. Addie looks to her human for everything and would make a great companion for someone who needs a little extra love in their life. We feel she would do better with kids older than 10 years. Addie is spayed, microchipped and current on vaccines. Applications can be found on our website,
