ADOPTED 12-08-2012

Imagine a dog who had never walked on grass before he came to his foster home! This gentle giant was rescued from an illegal breeder who kept him away from the good life of exercise and play outside that every dog deserves. He was starved and emaciated when he was brought home to safety. Jett is a young 7 years old. He just wants someone to love and a place to lay his head. This 80 pound Lab is now in perfect health thanks to the care and love of his foster family. He comes to his new adopter housebroken, spayed and up to date on all his shots--and ready to become your best friend.

Jett is a mellow sort of fellow. He's content to lay on the floor while you go about your daily activities at home. He loves kids and has no problem with kitties. He likes to walk, so if you like to take a leisurely stroll, he's perfectly happy to accompany you without pulling on his leash. But once back inside, Jett becomes a couch potato. He loves to cuddle with kids and thinks he's a lap dog. He currently lives with two dogs and has shown no aggression towards them whatsoever.

Since Jett was starved at his first residence (we can't call it a home!), you would think he would be possessive towards his food. But he's not. You can put your hand in his bowl while he's eating and he wouldn't nip at you. He doesn't take food from other dogs and is content just to have his own bowl of food show up every meal time.

Jett will happily ride in the car with you, so if you have the ability to bring him to work with you, he'd love it. If not, he is crate trained and will enjoy the times you can take him on trips to the store or the park or the pet store with you. As long as there is someone to love him and care for him, Jett doesn't ask for much more. If you have room in your life for a dog who is laid back, loving and very smart, Jett is a good match.

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.


ALL interested adopters MUST complete an application; agree to a vet reference check, phone interview and home visit. ALL family members MUST be in attendance for home visits - no exceptions. This helps us get to know everyone in the family so that we can help find the right dog for you.

Why Adoption is a Great Option

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