Our latest ward ready to be released on society can best be described by one term, "diva", and her name is "Whitney". Our girl is petite, gorgeous, self-absorbed, shameless, high energy, too smart, absolutely perfect German shepherd. Ms. Whitney has beautiful flowing bourbon coat, great symmetry, is between 10-12 months in age, will carry about 60-65 pounds, has a perfect form and believe me she knows all of this. This young lady is great with all things human (as long as you are fast), loves other dogs (that she manipulates), has a wonderful "who me" demeanor and can work her way into the spot lite in any situation.


MS Whitney performed very well in all of our socialization and training programs, especially when she thought she was running the show. Make no mistake this girl is one sharp cookie, she is extremely intelligent, believes she can run the show in any situation and has a ball proving to anyone that she is just that good. You cannot help but love MS Whitney to death, a major part due to her antics, but also because she is a very sweet dog that just loves to party. If you want a couch potato this girl is not for you but if are a high energy person that desires a laugh a minute, then look no farther? Oh by the way she believes that, even though she is just a puppy, she must have a castle because it is understood that she has certain standards to uphold

This young man is comfortable in any situation; crowds, groups, one on one, noisy, other dogs, children, it does not matter he will be at your side and comfortable. Obviously Thor performed extremely well during all of our socialization and training programs, reflecting strong capabilities social attitude, trainability and overall intelligence. As stated earlier, our boy gets along extremely well with other dogs, showing compatibility, deference, patience and social competence. If you are looking for that once in a life time "buddy" then you should run to your nearest computer and apply for the awesome "Thor"!

Whether you adopt through Rescue Dog Village or any other similar organization, the LEAST we can do is thank you from the bottom of our hearts for considering welcoming these deserving dogs into your hearts and home.

We appreciate that you want to help make a difference in the lives of dogs who need us most!!! RESCUE ROCKS!

Disclaimer: Please note that the breeds posted on our dogs' biographies are our best guess based on years of working with rescue dogs. Adopters who need to know the exact breed or mix of breeds of a particular dog must have the dog's DNA tested at their own expense.

Our rescue is ONLY in the business of offering FULL DISCLOSURE to adopters, and expects and hopes to engage your questions and concerns fully. We owe it to the dogs we rescue and all the wonderful families/adopters who might consider welcoming our charges into their hearts and home. Our dogs are waiting for that ideal forever home where they will be cherished as deserving family members. It's sad these second chances are even necessary for these dogs, but we are committed to them and will devote the time and energy to their rehoming, and not just MOVE them to save more dogs. We diligently and responsibly seek good matches as we don't want to re-home the dog again. These animals have already endured more than they should have, and through no fault of their own. It behooves us to be honest and forthright, and we appreciate the same in return from applicants. It's that winning combination of reciprocal trust and respect that allows for successful placements to be made. Happy adopters translate to happy dogs, and that's our goal!

Our rescue volunteers will be more than honored to be in touch with you directly and promptly, after receiving your application and conducting a mandatory a veterinarian check. If you have never owned a dog before, please submit your application regardless, and we will be in touch with you as soon as possible.

Also, take care to contact your veterinarian to let them know a member of rescue will be inquiring about your pet history!

Thank you for respecting that we all donate our time to saving these animals, and understand we value your philanthropic and compassionate desire to help be part of the rescue team. That said, you'll understand why we are committed to the well-being of our charges and consider this veterinarian check mandatory. If you are a first-time dog owner, we will work with you every step of the way! ADVOCACY AND EDUCATION ARE AS MUCH A PART OF RESPONSIBLE RESCUE AS ADOPTION! And it takes a RESCUE VILLAGE to help the most dogs possible in a thorough manner to ensure success on all fronts, and then some! It is an awful feeling to fail a dog, and we can't continue rescue if we don't do everything we can to ensure good matches for the dogs and tender families who might adopt them. THANK YOU FOR UNDERSTANDING.

Although we are an extremely small rescue group, we understand and respect your family's eagerness to be in touch and learn as much as you can about the dogs you are considering adopting. Our very experienced and devoted trainer will be happy to share all aspects of OUR RESCUE DOGS to determine compatibility once you've submitted your application, and another of our volunteers will explain the whole process of our rescue and answer any questions you might have as well

Our dogs deserve all that a committed family can offer. Make no mistake about it, this is one spectacular dog!

Please contact and we will be happy to return your correspondence, but please submit the application now so we can have that information as a starting base for our dialogue.

About Rescue Dog Village

Our dogs are assessed by a highly seasoned and dedicated trainers who devote years of experience working with dogs in a variety of settings and ideal matches are made so the perfect forever homes can be found. Too many transitions make it harder on these dogs who've endured so much already in their precious lives, so we take great care to evaluate every aspect of their behavior and share that with potential adopters. We believe in FULL AND OPEN DISCLOSURE and adopt our dogs fully vetted and healthy. RESCUE TAKES A VILLAGE -- and we are honored to work with all who share our philosophy of working together to do what we can to make a difference BECAUSE WE CAN!

Come Meet Our Pets...

Adoption fee for each dog is noted on their page and can sometimes vary.

Our Adoption Process...

Rescue Dog Village dogs are boarded and placed in foster homes until permanent, loving homes are found. We do not have a facility to visit - our dogs stay in private foster homes until adopted. We do our best to get to know each dog in our care so that we may be able to match them to the home best suited for their needs.

If you see a dog that you are interested in adopting, the process is as follows:

Step 1: The Application
Fill out an application. Each prospective owner fills out an adoption application. We usually have no history of our rescue dogs and are therefore very careful about placing them in households with children.

You will need to provide employer information, explain why you want the dog, and describe your yard, your other pets and your former pets, if any.

Step 2: Vet Check
Provide a veterinarian reference.
•Call your vets office and give them permission to speak to us.
----If one of our volunteers contacts your vets office and they do not have permission to speak to us, it will hold up processing your application or result in closing it due to the volume of applicants we receive daily.

• Provide all information about your vet
----phone number.

We respect and value our volunteer’s time and they do NOT HAVE TIME TO LOOK UP YOUR VETS INFORMATION. We appreciate your help and respect to make sure we have all the information we need.

If you've never gone to one before, you will need to provide a reference. The group will contact them to ask about your ability to care for a pet.

Step 3: The Home Visit
Your application will be reviewed and sent to a volunteer in your area. The volunteer will contact you to schedule a home visit within one week.

We require that everyone in the immediate family, including your current dog (if you have one) come to the appointment to meet your potential new dog. Adopting a dog is a big family decision and requires a commitment from everyone. If you currently own a dog, it must be up to date on shots, spayed/neutered and wear an i.d. tag.

Dogs from animal shelters can be amazing escape artists. By visiting your home, we can help you identify potential escape routes, and keep your new dog safe and secure.

Step 3: The Adoption
Before you bring your new dog home, you must sign an adoption contract with Rescue Dog Village.

Please remember that adoption contributions barely cover our expenses. Additional donations are greatly appreciated and will help us continue our life-saving work.

Sometimes situations arise which cannot be helped. If, for any reason, you are unable to keep a dog you’ve adopted from Rescue Dog Village, the dog cannot be given away.

It doesn’t matter how much time has passed since the adoption. You must either return the dog to Rescue Dog Village, or obtain approval from RDV to transfer ownership to a friend or relative.

If you and the dog you would like to adopt seem to be well matched, we will respond to your application by email. Feel free to contact us at any time regarding the status of your application.
