ADOPTED 6-28-2012

Hank is an absolutely beautiful male Rottweiler that came to our rescue via a good Samaritan network that sponsored his recovery from injuries received in a severe car accident. It appears that Hank refused to leave his companion that had been killed even though he had also suffered great injury, this selflessness tugged heavily on the hearts of a small group of people that said he must live. Our rescue and this group has spent the last few months assisting in the healing and recovery of this most special creature, a task that has proved to be a wonderful journey of love, learning and compassion. This effort has proved to be entirely successful, leaving a fully recovered and healthy hank along with a group that feels to have been blessed with his presence.


Hank is a classic black and red Rottweiler male, which is about 2-3 years in age and weighs in at a respectable 100 plus pounds. During our time with this boy we have found him to be extremely intelligent, very gentle, loving, friendly, laid back and in southern terms "just a good ole boy". Hank wants nothing out of life but to be with his person, sitting happily at his or her knee, being petted and loved, in return the "person" will be blessed with the most loyal and loving friend on the planet. At this point hank has progressed to the point that I can say he has no lasting effects from his injuries.

Hank has passed all of his socialization and training requirements, reflecting a great intellect, a love of all things “people" and a grace that has endeared him to the other dogs in our care. Obviously hank is leash, house and basic command trained, totally enjoying any and all time with "his" people. This most gentle and gracious guy is absolutely enamored with children, he actually smiles when they are around. Hank is an extra special guy and will fit in any family situation.

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.

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. 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. TAKE NOTE YOU SHOULD CHECK YOUR SPAM AS SOME RESPONSES FROM US WIND UP THERE WE'VE DISCOVERED. 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

If you have the time and love to offer this extremely bright dog who can make you laugh for hours at his antics, PLEASE APPLY TO BE CONSIDERED FOR A RESCUE DOG VILLAGE DOG AND GIVE ONE A HOME. 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.

Why Adoption is a Great Option

Hank, a Preston Rottweiler dog was adopted! Here's how you can benefit by looking at adoption as an option to buying a Rottweiler for sale in Preston, or seeking a Rottweiler 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 Rottweiler breeders who help with Rottweiler rescue. One puppy or kitten adopted in Preston paves the way for another one to be saved.
