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.

Diane, The People’s Pup 
Diane is a very happy, energetic little girl that needs her own person. She loves everyone she meets. She is Nettie’s sister; they were surrendered to us at 2 days old along with their mom and siblings. She is a gorgeous 14 week old deaf pup and she’s also got some vision impairment. She will need surgery for entropion in one of her eyes. In her foster home she has lots of friends. Her favorite is her foster brother the Newfoundland, but that doesn’t stop her from cuddling with the rest of her foster siblings. She plays very well with cats. She is very curious about the horses, Llamas and Alpacas but has not been allowed to befriend them. She does need a canine companion to help continue to build her confidence and a fenced yard will also be required. This little girl bonds very quickly and will be the best companion. Applications can be found on our website under the Adoptable Danes page,


Abbey is a beautiful 2 1/2-year-old (DOB: 11/10/14) fawn who was well loved and taken care of in her prior home. She was an owner surrender and lived with three other Danes (2 brothers and her dad) before coming to GDRA. She’s a little cautious when first meeting people, but once she warms up to you she will be your best friend and will not want to leave your side. Don’t let her size fool you, she loves to cuddle and curl up next to you! She is not afraid to make herself at home and loves to lounge on the couch. When she is outside you can find her rolling around in grass, enjoying the sunshine. She currently lives with three other dogs, but Abbey loves her people and prefers to play and cuddle with them rather than her four-legged foster siblings. She is crate trained and has started basic training classes for socialization and manners. Due to her size and powerful wagging tail, she would do best with older children (10 and up). She is also spayed, microchipped, current on vaccines and had surgery on her eye for entropion. Applications can be found on our website,



Nettie is a beautiful 14 week old puppy (DOB: 07/13/17). She came to us when she was surrendered by her owner at 2 days old along with mom and her other siblings (some of which have already been adopted). She does have some hearing, mainly high pitches. Her vision seems to be ok for now. (Her mom is deaf and her dad was partially deaf, all her siblings are deaf and some have vision impairments.) She is a typical puppy, full of energy and razor-sharp teeth! Her foster is working on potty and crate training but this will still need some work. She enjoys other dogs and has been to a few events and done well with other dogs. We do require that she is adopted out with another hearing dog as well as a fenced in yard. She will also need to be enrolled in a puppy class/obedience class within 30 days of adoption. She is a super sweet and very typical goofy Dane puppy looking for a forever home! Applications can be found on our website under the Adoptable Danes page:


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,
