Dog Adoption: Great Danes and Great Dane Mixes

I love Great Danes! They are pawsomely elegant, huge dogs which make great companions for some humans. When I first met one, on a photo shoot with my human, I thought, "WOOF! There are dogs bigger than me!" It was a great experience.

There are quite a few considerations when adopting a Great Dane. My pawsome friends at the Mid-Atlantic Great Dane Rescue League can answer all the questions that you have.

Read through the infographic to learn more about Great Danes and Great Dane Mixes!

OH MY BARKS! My friend, "Lab Lady" brought by an adorably cute 3-month-old Black Labrador Retriever puppy for you to meet- he reminds me of my cute-self at that age!  Meet Gambler!

Gambler is looking for a "Forever Home" in a rural or suburban single-family home with a fenced in yard.

A pawsomely sweet young fella, he loves getting kisses and ear rubs. He seems to know a few basic commands already but will be wanting to learn more from you! He is a very smart guy and will learn things fast!

As you can imagine, Gambler has typical puppy energy so he will need an adopter who will exercise him daily and provide training too. He loves playing, going for hikes, running, and chewing on a toy or a Kong. He walks well on a leash with an Easy Walk harness.

Gambler would enjoy going to a dog park, doggie daycare or having playdates with other dogs. Socialization is important at this early stage in a dog's life. He can be your one-and-only, dog that is, if you provide him some socialization to enhance his skills. Barks, he will make a great companion for another playful, energetic dog.

At the end of the day, he goes into his crate, whines a few minutes and then crashes. He sleeps through the night!

Watch him play here: Gambler Playing! Watch him hiking here: Gambler Hiking!

Barks, Gambler is your typical puppy with tons of energy. He will need attention and exercising.

Gambler is good with dogs and cats. He is recommended for mini-humans ages 8 and older.

WOOF! A few reminders from my friends at Lab Rescue: Raising a puppy can be very rewarding but a very demanding pursuit. Puppy adopters need to ensure that the puppy:

  • Has a potty/social interaction break every three or four hours until 6 months old to ensure house-training success. 
  • Gets plenty of daily play time and walks. 
  • Has regular interaction with kids, adults, and other dogs to ensure positive socialization. 
  • Two pups from the same litter together will not be placed together.
  • Puppy adoption fee is $350. 
  • A contract with a training addendum and spay/neuter addendum will be completed before a puppy heads home. 
    • Gets the vaccinations in accordance with the Lab Rescue Puppy Protocol and other care as recommended by their vet. 
    • Goes to a formal training program when the puppy is six months old in addition to in-home training efforts.

January is around 1-year-old and a Labrador Retriever mix. She is one smart girl who is house trained and knows some basic commands. She is looking forward to learning more from you!

January loves going hiking, playing in the water, running and playing.... sounds like the pawsome girl for those Friday's off or wonderful weekends of hiking...

Friday's Friend! Great Dane Dog Adoption, Mid-Atlantic Great Dane Rescue League

Oh, my woofs! What an adorably beautiful girl!  Meet my friend Tessa from the Mid-Atlantic Great Dane Rescue League. This girls pawsome beauty has been known to STOP traffic- and I can sese why! WOOF!

Tessa is a 3-year-old Merle Great Dane with natural ears.  She is pawsomely affectionate, loves to be pet and is one cuddle bug!

Tessa has pawsome house manners! She likes to bark at dinner time but shows no food aggression. She knows a few basic commands, "sit" and "lay down" and is learning a few others. She is pawsome on a leash and enjoys walks.

Tessa does alright with other dogs but will need to be in a home with a very calm submissive large breed dog or be your-one-and-only-dog-that-is! She has not had much socialization and gets carried away easily. She will require a strong alpha owner who can show her proper behavior teaching her to trust so she does not react out of fear.

Tessa will chase squirrels/cats so she will need a home without cats. Though she is gentle, she would do well in a home with older mini-humans, ages 12 and older, or adults only. She enjoys a calm environment with a few play sessions thrown in to let her energy out!

Tessa will make a pawsome addition to a household and make a wonderful companion. She wants nothing more than to pawlease her humans.

If you would like to learn more about Tessa and adopting her, pawlease visit Mid-Atlantic Great Dane Adoption Procedures.

Unable to adopt? WOOF, how about supporting Tessa financially? Donations will assist with Tessa's care. Any extra funds will be used to assist Great Danes other at Mid-Atlantic Great Dane Rescue League. Interested, please donate HERE!
