Adoptable Danes

KGDR Danes live in loving foster homes until they find a family of their own. Please read our Adoption Info before applying.

PLEASE NOTE: You may apply for adoption at any time, regardless of dog availability, to ensure that you are approved ahead of time.

We process applications in the order they are received and cannot guarantee that a dog will still be up for adoption once your application is approved.

Meet Hazel! She is a female Great Dane and is roughly between 2-3 years old. One word to describe this girl: sweetheart! She becomes friends with every human she meets and instantly wants them to love / pet her. And if you sit down, be prepared for her to snuggle up right next to you and lay her head on your chest. Not only does she want to be your best friend, she will follow you everywhere – think of her as your second shadow.

Besides being a big cuddler, she loves to play with her foster dog siblings, Molly & Diesel. She will chase Molly in the back yard, play tug-of-war in the house or just snuggle up to them and take a nap. She really enjoys chewing on Benebones or carrying around her favorite stuffed animal. When she isn’t playing, you can find her on the couch snoring away. But when we need to leave, she is crate trained and house trained – zero accidents and not destructive in her crate.

She does like other dogs but has not been cat tested – she has seen cats at the vet and seems curious of them. She has met young children and does forget her size (she is a leaner and may knock them over), but with practice, we think she would do great with kids. She takes treats very well and not food aggressive.

One characteristic of Hazel you will notice is her back legs appear to be weak. The vet did X-rays of her back legs and hips which showed her bone structure is normal. Along with the X-rays, she is UTD on vaccinations, spayed, negative for heartworms and negative for parasites.

If you are ready for a 120 lbs. cuddle bug, goofy friend, apply to adopt Hazel!

Hiya I’m Scooby – a 3-year-old male blue Dane. I am blind in one eye but that doesn’t bother me! I’m a goofy happy Dane that is very talkative and lovable. I adapt to new situations well but I must admit – I am very strong boy and need structure and a firm master. I would love to continue training with my adoptive family!

I absolutely love car rides and would love a family who likes to play with toys and run around in a backyard. I can get excited and like to jump (working on not doing that), but otherwise, I would be okay around kids. After a thorough introduction, I do okay with other dogs and cats.

I’m a smart boy and already crate trained and housetrained! I’m fixed, had a gastropexy done and vaccinated. My foster mom is taking me back this week for a last booster. I was also Lyme disease positive and have 2 more weeks of antibiotics.

Hi my name is Nola, Nola Jean if you’re getting after me and you probably will…LOL… I will be 3 years old in December, and I am self-described as a very large and in charge toddler. I am a very sweet girl, but I also love to wrestle and romp like I’m acting in my very own action-packed movie starring the Rock and Bruce Lee.

My ideal family would be someone who has experience raising Great Danes and can give me the continued love and support that I need to continue to grow and flourish. I am a work in progress and I will not lie about that but I also know that I am quite the catch for the right person. Since Nola is learning to not play so rough, she is better suited for a family with older children and a family who will continue her training. She is very food motivated, which will help with her training.

Nola is crate trained and housetrained. She has done well with dogs but has not met cats, so a meet n greet with a potential adopters’ animals is a requirement to ensure everyone gets along.

So, if quiet evenings on the couch with Nola’s large beautiful noggin on your lap with a few wrestles mixed in sounds like your cup of tea, get your application in today!

Nola is UTD on vaccinations and spayed.


3 year old female


2 year old female

Meet Molly! Molly is 2 years old. She will require a fence and an owner who lives within close proximity to Shelby County Ky. so the new owner will be able to make many visits to get to know her before an adoption will occur.

She is an amazing and loveable dog but was unfortunately from a previous abusive situation. She will take lots of love and patience.

She is good with other dogs and children. Never around cats.

Not Yet Ready for Adoption

These dogs are currently in foster homes but are not yet ready for adoption. Danes may not be ready for a variety of reasons: they may be new to the rescue and we are getting to know their personalities, they may be awaiting medical care (including spay/neuter or vaccinations), or they may be in a foster-to-adopt home in which their current foster is planning to adopt them. We will update the website with their bio as soon as they are ready for adoption, so check back soon.
