This rescue organization was formed because we see a great need for a rescue network in northeast Oklahoma, Missouri, Kansas, Nebraska, Iowa, and western/central/southern Illinois. While some of these states have strong and successful Rescue groups, there are gaps in area coverage and some states have no Rescue at all. Rottweilers are loyal, courageous and loving dogs. Contrary to popular belief, a Rottweiler who has been raised with children makes a wonderfully attentive guardian and best friend. As with any dog, they give what they receive. If they are abused, starved and beaten they may retaliate in self-defense. However, we have taken dogs into Rescue who have been mercilessly abused, and still they continue to trust and love.
