This is Evie…and Evie is a spectacular girl! She is 2 years old and already spayed and up to date on all vaccines. She came in as an owner surrender and had been crated most of her life.

She LOVES everything! Great with all dogs big and small, fine with cats and loves people and kids. Evie is house trained and crate trained and loves to go for rides in the car .Evie loves toys and especially stuffed toys, but you have to watch her as she will try to eat them sometimes. She is a petite Dane with a big heart.


Now for the bad news…Evie was diagnosed with Cushings disease. Once we get her regulated on a dose of Vetoryl, she will need to stay on it for the rest of her life and have follow up blood work periodically. Her meds will be about $90-100 a month.

We would love for this girl to have a forever home of her own but know that may be hard with her medical issues…but man this girl is perfect in every other way!


Meet Francis!  He is a 10 month old male Dane pup. Francis is a sweet boy that is full of energy and love. He wants to be close to you and part of everything you are doing. He loves to cuddle and use your lap or your legs as a pillow.
Francis is still a puppy so he is still learning some boundaries, but for the most part he is very smart and food driven.  He loves carrots, cucumbers, and watermelon. He has also mastered,  sit, lay down, and shake.  He gets along with both cats and dogs, but sometimes when playing he  can get carried away and doesn’t understand the size difference between him and  his smaller siblings. He is still a puppy himself so it’s just a matter of correcting and patience. He loves to play with toys and will go straight to his crate and sit for his treats.
Francis is UTD on vaccines and neutered.
*** Prior giant breed experience is required for any of our Danes under 1 yr of age.  A fence is also required for dogs under 2 yrs old.


Lucky is a 1-2yr old neutered male shepherd mix, approximately 70lbs, who was pulled from the shelter (was a stray) and has been in a foster home since early December- settling in and learning manners. He is housebroken and loves to be with his foster mom. We don’t recommend a house with small children or other small dogs, as he may be nervous around quick movements. He was reactive when approached in the kennel and in “his” room at the house. But in the rest of the house and yard, he warms up to people. He hasn’t been socialized with many other dogs but was a stray with a husky.

He will need a confident and patient owner, willing to take the time to train him. He’s walking better on a leash and learning not to jump. He’s a love bug and big lap dog who loves to give kisses. He bonded quickly to his foster mom and looks to her for confidence. He is more comfortable with women than men. Unsure of his interaction with cats. Heartworm negative. Lucky loves toys and bones and is a real sweetie that just needs a little patience and love.


This is Claire! We think she is somewhere between 3-5 yrs old. The vet should be able to narrow that down when she goes in for an exam, blood work and vaccines. Claire came into rescue in heat, so her spay surgery will be a little delayed, and she will not be available for adoption until mid March.

Claire is your typical Velcro Dane. She follows her foster mom everywhere and gives great leans/hugs. She is shy towards strangers, but curious enough to give them a good sniff and allow them to give her a quick pat on the head.

Claire is very well behaved!!! Her foster parent can leave her free to roam the house while at work. She is a true gem and walks great on a leash!! She gets along with the miniature poodle in the home and the 2 teenage sons. We have not seen her around cats or small children. As far as we can tell, she doesn’t know sit or stay – but she is so well-behaved and smart.

We are trying to give Claire a few extra pounds, as she is quite skinny at the moment. But her coat is very soft and her markings are gorgeous! More to come as she settles in with us.


Meet Bubba! He is a 2 yr old energetic Dane mix. He came into the rescue through a shelter in South Carolina. He really loves to play and run. He gets along with other dogs and cats. Bubba is very active and high energy and needs an active family.

He is house and crate trained and has graduated obedience training and is a very smart boy! He can be stubborn so consistency in keeping up with what he learned in training is key with Bubba. He is great out in public at events and loves everyone he meets!  

He is just not your typical Dane…he’s a mix with either Boxer or Black mouth cur therefore he has that higher energy. He has gone to doggie day care and does fantastic! He has a lot of love to give and he has been in rescue now almost a year looking for that perfect someone. Could it be you?


Phoebe joined GDFRL via a rural shelter, where she was dropped off pregnant with 7 puppies. Now that her babies have grown and been adopted, Phoebe has really come out of her shell! Phoebe is very gentle and loving with people she is familiar with. She loves to lounge and nap with you and her favorite toys. She also loves to lay in the sun and chase her foster brother in the yard.

Phoebe is crate trained and food motivated. We are working with Phoebe on her leash manners and meeting new people. She is shy, and the outside world is scary sometimes, but with positive reinforcement and her foster brother she is learning that she can trust others. Phoebe’s favorite pastime is removing all toys from the toy box, playing with them, and then leaving them all around the house for her foster mom to clean up.

Phoebe is a very petite Dane who would fit in well in a family who may find a full-sized Dane overwhelming. She is currently being fostered with a feline brother and has spent a good amount of time around children. She plays very well with other dogs and would do best with another dog as a sibling in her forever home. She is oh-so-sweet, but she can be timid and unsure on her own, so another pup to bond with will be great for her.

This girl deserves the good life—to know she’s secure and loved, and to have her very own human to snuggle and fur sibling to chase around the yard.

*Phoebe must have another dog in the home as a companion, and she must have at least a 6 ft tall fence.


Marble is a sweet 3-4 year old male Dane who is being fostered in Upstate SC. He was living outside in a chain link kennel until one day his owners moved and took the kennel and tied him to a tree, moved and left him!  A neighbor took him in and called us. He is underweight and light heartworm positive.

Since he’s been with us, he has gained weight and gained confidence!  Since we had no history on him at all, he started a board and train with one of the trainers we use in SC. He tended to be a little reactive on leash when seeing other dogs but was easily redirected. Recently, he considered introducing himself to the neighborhood cat and wisely decided against that (see photo). By the looks of it, we aren’t sure it would have ended well for him.  😹

He’s a lazy love bug who enjoys sleeping in odd positions. He’s adorable!

He is great in the house and has had no accidents. He loves people and kids and especially head rubs! He fusses a little going in the crate but will go and settle quickly. He’s a chill guy that loves stuffie toys and playing in the yard.
