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

    Hi I'm Duke. I am a 6 year old Grate Dane. I am a sweet, fun loving boy. I am neutered, up to date on all my vaccinations, microchipped,house and crate trained. I have basic obedience, leash walking skills and a good recall. I am good with adults, kids, cats and other dogs. I love to play and have a good time with my person. I am looking for a forever home that can give me the life I deserve. Do you think you can be my forever family? Contact For The Love of Dogs Rescue at or call 704-402-0622 for an application to adopt me. If you feel that you have room in your heart and home for me, please do not hesitate to email ... (Read More) for an adoption application. There is an adoption process. 1. You request an adoption application (email to request an application). 2. Your references and Vet reference will be checked, (your answers will be matched up with the particular dog - and others that are available). 3. IF all is well, a Home Visit will be scheduled. Sometimes a video or photos will be allowed. any issues will be identified and addressed. 4. IF all that has been done and it's all good then a Meet and Greet would be scheduled, IF that goes well then... You would be able to sign the adoption contract, pay the adoption fee (or make prior arrangements) and take me to my new forever home. It sounds like a lot - and maybe it is... but the Rescue only has my best interest at heart and they want to ensure that the family that takes me home is a good fit for my personality, temperament and that I have the best possible chances for a successful forever placement. So please don't be hesitant to put a little effort into bringing me, or one of my other rescue pals into your home. Thank You for considering Rescue over breeders. (Less)

Great Dane Mix    Age: Puppy

Compatibility: Good w/ Most Dogs, Good w/ Most Cats, Good w/ Kids and Adults 
Personality: High Energy, Very Submissive 
Health: Neutered, Vaccinations Current 

    Hello Families! My name is Beech! I am a gorgeous 9-10 month old giant lug of puppy love. I am house trained, and great with other dogs. I was born in this rescue, and I have watched all my other brothers and sisters get adopted, but I am the last one left. My other siblings had striking markings, and with me being the only black and white dog in the litter, I was left behind. I go to work with my foster mommy and daddy every day, and I run the place. I have gotten so much socialization, and am a wonderful dog. I live with an older male Boxer who showed me the ropes, and a young female boxer who I play with all day. I love to go to the ...

Rescue Me ID: 17-12-20-00229Oliver (male)

Great Dane Mix    Age: Puppy

Compatibility: Not Good with Cats, Good with Kids and Adults 
Personality: High Energy 
Health: Neutered, Vaccinations Current 

    EST DOB: 12/2016 Weight: 75lbs. Oliver is black and white with Hazel eyes and a curious black nose. At just over a year old, Oliver is still quite a puppy. He loves to play with other dogs and people, including children. He loves to chew his nylabones or antlers and can keep himself occupied with those for hours at a time. Oliver can run like the wind but doesn't have super high energy. In other words, Oliver can run or play off his energy and then is just as happy to chill out and snuggle. Oliver is very well mannered, house-trained and has good recall. He is very sensitive to correction and a simple 'ah, ah' is all he needs to stop him ... (Read More)in his tracks. He is eager to learn and a pleaser. The only time Oliver gets distracted is when his nose gets a scent of something like a deer. Then watch out! He has leapt over a 4 foot fence in pursuit. Oliver needs a home preferably with another dog who is confident and the leader. He gets anxious when left alone for long periods of time. His human should be gentle and kind and experienced in positive reinforcement techniques. We feel Oliver would thrive in a home where his caregiver works from home or is retired. Oliver needs lots of attention and some serious exercise. Oliver will need an 8' fence or some type of fence modified to prevent him from jumping over. Oliver lives at a pet hotel and doggie day care and meets new dogs of all shapes and sizes each day and gets along with every one of them! Due to his size and a bit of prey drive, Oliver cannot be placed in a home with toy breeds or cats. He would do best with a medium to large sized doggy who likes to play, but knows when to take a break. A note from Oliver: Hey guys!!! My name is Oliver. I'm basically just a big, lovable, adorable goofball. Everyone sees how handsome I am, and how big I look, and how mellow I can be sometimes, and they think I'm all grown up. But really I'm just a kid! So, they tell me I still have some growing up to do. I like to play with toys, and dogs, and humans! I love to hike! I ride awesome in a car! I not real crazy about crates, but I'm comfortable in a large kennel space or maybe a gated room. Sometimes I get a little nervous about being left all by myself. I'm looking for someone special to love me for who I am. Maybe someone with another dog or two who knows a lot about dogs and helping them grow up. If you think you could be my family, please call my friend at 828-612-2951 or email I'll be watching for you!!! ~Oliver~ p.s. I'm from Morganton, NC and would like to stay close to my friends We try to limit our travel time for home visits to a two-hour driving range (about 75 miles) from Morganton, NC. Please visit for an adoption application. Adoption fee $100.00 (Less)

Great Dane Mix    Age: Puppy

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

    Meet Logan! This boy must have an angel on his shoulder. Foster dad found him on the side of the highway as a tiny baby, where he had been tossed out like a piece of garbage. He is now grown into a silly, happy, very loving 10 month old boy. Logan LOVES other dogs, adults and kids, and he LOVES to play. An active home with a fenced yard would be best for this sweet boy.

PIease Read Before Adopting a Great Dane in North Carolina
    Great Dane Dogs can make good pets in North Carolina 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.
