JADE AD 08-13-11


ADOPTED 08-13-11 – Hi there! I am about 12 weeks old and pretty darn irresistible if you ask us. Don’t you just want kiss my sweet face?! I would love to have a home SOON but I won’t be available until August. Jade has been in foster care in LA for a few weeks now and we have learned some new things about her. She is a very special sweet girl, she has had all her puppy shots, been spayed and is ready to travel. There is no question that she is a high energy dog so her new family needs to be very active and give her daily runs in the morning and evening.

She likes dogs and people but she is not used to small children so we will be looking for a family that has older children. In addition, she gets scared of loud noises and the laughter and activity of small children would not be good for this gentle girl. She gets nervous if kids scream or run towards her and her mom is working with her to help her.

She does like to eat and will try to eat other dog’s food even after she has cleaned her own bowl. She is not housetrained and she has accidents at night but as she grows, that will stop. She does whine for about 10 minutes but settles down so she will need someone that can continue to enforce that for her. If her new family gives in to her, which would only get worse so she needs to learn that night time is for sleeping, this is a typical puppy behavior.  
If you like to take a dog with you on short and long trips, Jody LOVES the car. A dog that likes the car can become a real buddy and go everywhere with the family. She is not used to the leash so that is something that will work out in time.


Most important, Jade loves to cuddle and she needs lots of attention. They will need to pay attention to her when she is scared of loud noises and help her learn to trust that her new family will always protect her, which takes time so you will need to be patient. Her new family will need to give her lots of exercise because she is an active dog and we believe that she will continue to stay active as a young and adult dog so activity and exercise will be a must for the new family.

Sponsored Dogs – They Need Your Help!



RDVG wants to provide you with as much information as we can because some of our mix breeds you might not be familiar with. The below section on “About the Breed” offers information on some of the Breed Characteristics, Children & Pets, Behavior and Personality, Temperament and more.

It is important to point out that in addition to the breed, there is an enormous variety in the way a dog acts and reacts to the world around him. In the end, your dog’s preferences and personality are as individual as you are–and if you can accept that– then you’re bound to enjoy each other.

Children & Pets

Animal Behavior Guidelines

Many children, especially very young ones, do not realize that pets are living animals and not toys. Failing to teach a child how to handle pets properly can result in suffering on the part of the pet and, in some cases, injury to the child. Taking introductions slowly will allow you to introduce family dogs and your children safely

Puppy Behavior, Growth & Development

Each stage of Puppy Growth and development is fascinating; by the time it reaches its first birthday a puppy is considered a mature, adult dog. Puppy Growth rate is fast compared to humans, just compare a puppy of 8 weeks to a baby of the same age.

One of the most common questions asked about a puppy’s growth and development rate refers to the eventual size of the puppy. How big will the puppy grow? How can you determine the adult size of a puppy? A young puppy is tiny and cute – everyone loves puppies! But will the puppy be suited to your environment? How much exercise will be required for a full grown dog? Will the puppy be a suitable pet for children? The breed of the puppy will determine the answers to these questions. A general response to the size and growth rate of a puppy and the adult size of a puppy is therefore not possible – it needs to be specific to the puppy’s breed.
