Review for Rottweiler Hearts Rescue, Clayton, NC, USA
Our experience with RHR was limited to one amazing adoption. We became aware of RHR through a photo of a beautiful male Rottweiler named Buddy who had some special needs. We have been active in the rescue community in Colorado for over 7 years and have fostered and adopted our share of dogs during this time. Most notably a blind Rottweiler named Ranger. Ranger joined our pack in January of 2014 having been dumped on the streets, severely abused and recently losing his first eye from his injuries. It was our experience with Ranger that helped us to appreciate the need to rescue dogs with special needs.
In July 2018 my wife was sent a picture of another blind Rottweiler, Buddy, who had been returned to RHR due to an unfortunate change in his original owner's housing situation. The biggest challenge was the RHR is in North Carolina and we live in Colorado.
When we decided to officially apply for adoption of Buddy we had to include a request for an exception to their policy of adopting only to individuals within a six-hour radius of their location. Our adoption and exception request was considered carefully by RHR and included a video conference call with members of RHR’s Board of Directors. In the end, the positive experience we had with our first blind Rottweiler helped pave the way to being approved.
We can’t thank Rottweiler Hearts Rescue for making an exception to their policy, so we could adopt Buddy. He is an excellent addition to our pack and he has filled the void left by Ranger’s passing. Every pack should have a Rottweiler and if you are looking for a reputable, caring rescue to work with you don’t need to look any further than RHR. God bless you for all that you do for this magnificent, often misunderstood breed.
