Big Paws Ranch - Great Dane Puppies in Citrus County

Our Story

Big Paws Ranch is a family owned and operated Great Dane breeder based in Crystal River, Florida.  We breed Great Danes with the focus on producing quality pets. Making the transition from our loving home to yours easy is one of our primary goals.

We strive to breed the healthiest Great Danes we can and are always here to help educate new owners and ensure the puppies get the love, care, and attention they deserve. Our puppies are raised on the Premium dog food brand Life’s Abundance.  It is packed with nutrition and wholesome ingredients with a taste they love. Also, all of our puppies get a “My Forever Home” puppy bag with some goodies in it including treats from Life’s Abundance.

We also recommend Nuvet  for Joint and Immune System Supplements.  They are created in an FDA registered laboratory with natural ingredients and help provide your furry friend to stay healthy for years to come.

Contact Us to find out more about how you can make one of our puppies your new family member.  We provide Great Dane puppies to all of our surrounding areas and we will work with you to arrange transportation for areas that are farther away.

How Do I Get a Big Paws Ranch Great Dane?

How It Works

Our puppies find homes quickly.  The cost on our Big Paws Great Danes is affected by several different factors, including color and registration (CKC/AKC).  Our beautiful puppies sell for $1000 – $2600.  If you are interested in making one of our pups an addition to your family, you can add your name to our Puppy Waiting List by clicking here. No deposit is taken at this time.  You will be notified when a new litter is born. 

At that time you can visit our site or our Facebook Page to view pictures of our new babies.  If you decide that you want one of the pups to join your family,  you can contact us and pay the required deposit.  Sorry, but no puppy will be held without a deposit.


Deposits are $350 and are non-refundable.  If buyer changes their mind you will not receive a refund but your deposit will be available for use on a future litter.  If something is to happen to the puppy while still in our care (i.e. death, disease, or genetic disorder) your deposit will be fully refunded.  We do not take deposits prior to puppies being born.  Deposit are taken on a first come first serve basis. NO PUPPY is reserved without a deposit.  The balance is due in cash when you pick your puppy up.
To insure our puppies the best start in life they are expected to be picked up no later than 3 days after Vet clearance and issue of their Florida Health Certificate. If this is not going to be possible prior arrangements need to be made before deposit is paid. We understand emergency sometimes happen. We will try our best to accommodate pick up if an emergency should occur.

In both cases the dog is a purebred and can be registered with AKC. Difference with Limited AKC you have NO breeding rights. If you choose to have a litter it will not be recognized by AKC. You will not be able to register your litter or any of the puppies with AKC.

All of our dogs have natural ears. Because of that we don’t have a place we recommend. We also can’t give any advice on care of cropping because we have no personal experience.  You can read much more about ear cropping here.  

Our recommendation is if possible wait until your puppy is 18-24 months old.

Most Great Dane breeders do not recommend ever feeding puppy food. Puppy foods can cause a Great Dane puppy to grow too quickly and cause bone development issues.
