ADOPTED 6/2/2011

Over the last few months our rescue has been working with a group of twenty three Nova Scotia duck tolling retrievers that were taken from a puppy mill in south Mississippi where they had been severely neglected. This process has been a work of love that has been both educational and life changing. These particular animals have been a blessing to our rescue, supplying tremendous life growth through their will to survive and their willingness to accept us in our efforts to help them.

Out of this process has emerged a true “sage " in the entity of Kenobi, a very intuitive, deep and understanding male of tremendous capacity. Kenobi has been the glue that has held the group together with his leadership and his innate capability to understand that we are trying to help. This guy earned his stripes the hard way, surviving extremely harsh conditions and fighting off a wild hog attack that would have killed most dogs. He has been able to keep his position in spite of the injuries of the hog attack that has left him with a minor limp, all the while keeping his calm and very loving demeanor. We think that Kenobi is ready to just have a life of love and tranquility, a life he has more than earned through many test of tempering. I as the trainer know that he had to step up mightily to lead the dogs through their hard times because his nature is one of a true love sponge.


During our time together Kenobi has been exposed to adults, small children, other dogs, cats and our volunteer Lou ( the dog spoiler ) he has excelled in all aspects of his exposure and socialization training. This guy will fit in best with a family that has time to love him as he deserves and that truly wants a dog that is happy just to be with them. In his life Kenobi had every reason to give up and quit, he chose to survive, a quality that makes him very, very special. If you are looking for a dog with the insight to understand you, love you for who you are and be happy with just living with you, then you need to look at this guy very closely, he truly is very special.


About Our Rescue

These dogs deserve all of our attention, and in Rescue Dog Village, we are committed to our adopters and our dogs equally. We offer full disclosure and hope to make the best matches possible. Please know our adoption fees never cover our expenses. We rely on the generosity of our adopters and supporters to help us help the dogs.

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.

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

Why Adoption is a Great Option

Kenobi, a Preston Nova Scotia Duck-Tolling Retriever/Golden Retriever dog was adopted! Here's how you can benefit by looking at adoption as an option to buying a Nova Scotia Duck-Tolling Retriever/Golden Retriever for sale in Preston, or seeking a Nova Scotia Duck-Tolling Retriever/Golden Retriever dog from a breeder in Preston.

  1. Rescues and shelter volunteers in Preston already know the personality and tendencies of their pets. This means they can match you with the right pet. That will makes it much easier transition to owning a pet for yourself and your new pet.
  2. On average adoption fees are much less than you'd pay a Preston breeder, or pet store. Plus most often rescue pets have already been to the veterinarian for a check-up, had a round of vaccinations, and are spayed or neutered. That is a lot of savings!
  3. You will become a hero, and give a needy dog or cat a loving home. In fact, there are even Nova Scotia Duck-Tolling Retriever/Golden Retriever breeders who help with Nova Scotia Duck-Tolling Retriever/Golden Retriever rescue. One puppy or kitten adopted in Preston paves the way for another one to be saved.
