BELLA#2 TD 03-19-13


TRANSFER DATE: 03-19-13: TRANSFERRED TO DOGS 2ND CHANCE – Bella is a female Rotti/Lab mix who is almost two years old. She’s a sweetheart of 67 pound of pure love. She is happy to interact with humans but loves to play with other  dogs mostly. She does not need constant human attention that some dogs require, but she will come up to you to be petted when she wants to. Bella will do best in a house without cats. She previously chased cats, which (sadly) is why she is back in rescue. She’d love to have another dog or two to play with, however.

If you or your family likes to be active and bring a dog with you to play outside, Bella’s your girl. She will want to be the alpha dog, but she loves kids and they can hug her and pet her all they like. She loves it. She is completely house trained, up to date on her shots and healthy. She will gladly ride in the car once you convince her to get in. She could use a bit of training on the leash, but is happy to go in her crate at night. Bella is a good girl who should not be in rescue. She should be out romping with her new family and enjoying her life. Can you help Bella out by giving her a forever home?

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.
