Hello, my name is Paljas!


More about me

Female (Extra-large). Great dane. Adult - DOB: 2015.
I am good with:
Dogs, Children

Shelter: Great Dane Rescue (Western-Cape)
Tel: 0760772364

True to her name, Paljas (afrikaans word from Dutch. Meaning clown and referring to those clown puppets with the suits with the frill around the neck and ankles that blotches or splashes of color. In the “volksmond” (general usage over time) it had become a reference to an “deurmekaar”/with-no-discernable-order-to-it display of different colors, she is not only a clown (as Danes often are) but her coat is simply a beautiful display of Black and grey Patches. She is truly a beauty.

Paljas will definitely need a home who can commit to at least a few sessions of basic obedience classes should you wish for her true potential to be seen. She is a eager and quick learner. Friendly and a happy go lucky demeanour. She would make any house a truly wonderful vibrant place to come home to.

She does well with Big breeds, especially males. Please not snackrussels , similar size breeds and cats. She remembers a time when Great Danes were boar hunters and her prey drive is still very strong.

If you think you can turn her into the diamond she is, under all the rough play, then please send us an email at or WhatsApp (only) 0760772364

We promise she is absolutely worth it!!
