Iowa Great Dane Dogs for Adoption

Rescue Me ID: 18-05-05-00007Brute (male)

Great Dane Mix    Age: Young Puppy

Compatibility: Good with Most Dogs, Good with Kids and Adults 
Personality: Average Energy, Average Temperament 
Health: Neutered, Vaccinations Current 

    This young guy is Brute - and he fits his name - he is a stout and strong baby. He is about five months old and we believe he may have some Great Dane in him - but believe us - that is just a guess - beyond that we have no idea what the one or many breeds may be. His face looks like he may have some Bully breed but his body and his ears (which he refuses to let you see for a picture) don't look like it. He LOVES people - play, play and play some more. He could keep a housefull of kids on their toes and active with his energy level. A big family would be great for this boy. He is neutered, current on his shots, has been wormed and ... (Read More)micro-chipped. His adoption fee is $250.00. If interested him, or any pet from PFP, please go to our website at and complete an adoption application and then come visit during our open hours. (Less)

Rescue Me ID: 18-04-03-00242Manny (male)

Great Dane Mix    Age: Young Adult

Compatibility: Good w/ Most Dogs, Not Good w/ Cats, Good w/ Adults (Not Kids) 
Personality: Average Energy, Very Submissive 
Health: Neutered, Vaccinations Current 

    You may remember this guy - it is Manny. He was out to foster for about three months last year and then found what we believed to be a home that would give him the time and space he needed to come the rest of the way out of his shell. He was doing well with the stability of his foster home and a regular routine. Unfortunately he got adopted in November and rather than wait for him to adjust (which everyone knew would not be quick) they decided to drug him starting the first of December. The drugging did nothing but amplify him being afraid of everything and then he went back to having accidents inside when he was drugged. He got more ... (Read More)fearful of things and appeared to be drugged enough to more or less be in a zombie state. His condition when he came back in was very upsetting for everyone. We immediately consulted with the vet and got him off the drugs. It took a little while for him to get past the shakes, inability to control his bodily functions, to stand without wobbling and then through all of the mess of everything making him sick at his stomach as he was working the drugs out of his system. He has lost quite a bit of weight but we are giving him plenty to eat to make up for it. He is now doing better and we believe he is very thankful to be back at the shelter. He is still very afraid of strangers - men more so than women - he loves to go on walks as long as you work him through the stages of everything being strange - once he learns the route he does great. He gets along great with other dogs. Not sure on cats but probably not a good idea. He is NOT aggressive. He needs to live in a structured environment where he can learn what to expect. We do not believe he could adjust to a home with young kids where there is a lot of commotion. He is a big boy and is probably a Lab/Great Dane mix. He is 2 1/2 years old. (Less)

Great Dane Mix    Age: Adult

Compatibility: Good w/ Most Dogs, Not Good w/ Cats, Good w/ Adults (Not Kids) 
Personality: Very High Energy, Average Temperament 
Health: Spayed, Vaccinations Current 

    Hi my name is Kona and I am looking for my forever home. Latest update went to the vet got a clean bill of health nothing wrong. Ideally my forever home I need to be the only pet. I have very high energy level and need to go on long walks. I'm good with kids 12 years old and up but I'm not very good with cats or dogs smaller than me. This is the second posting my foster family has put up for me I was adopted out for about 3 days unfortunately it didn't work out. So I'm back with my foster family who takes really good care of me but don't have a whole lot of space for me. I would love to have a backyard that's fenced-in with a really secure ... (Read More)gate so I can run around and have fun and be the dog I should be I could use a little more training I understand sit and lay down but need a little work on some other things. Please feel free to contact my foster Daddy anytime via email or phone and ask any questions you have about me. Kona. (Less)

PIease Read Before Adopting a Great Dane in Iowa
    Great Dane Dogs can make good pets in Iowa if they match your IifestyIe. The Great Dane is an enormous, but extremely gentle breed often referred to as the Gentle Giant. Great Danes are kind, loyal, and sociable. They need to be around people. Great Danes are gentle, devoted, and wonderful with children, but should be supervised with little ones because of their large size. Great Danes should be well trained as puppies. Great Danes can live in an apartment with enough daily exercise but do best with a large yard.
