BEN#1 AD 10-26-13


ADOPTED 10-26-13 – The following is the beginning of Ben’s rescue story from his first rescuer who took him into rescue.  It takes lots of work to heal the bodies that have suffered from neglect and abuse. The emotional scars that they carry are everlasting; the foster gives their hearts to the dogs in their care and the dogs forever leave an everlasting imprint of their story with the foster and their families. We are truly blessed with wonderful volunteers who carry these dogs–every step of the way. These are the stories; they are filled with love and kindness, hardship and worry. Rescue Dog Village Guardian, Inc. is forever grateful for all that the foster does for our dogs.

Ben started out his life by being taken from his mother as a baby and was dumped like trash at a local shelter with his two sisters.  There are angels in the south that know the value of a dog; Ben was a very lucky pup when his rescue angel caught her attention and saw the gleam of Ben and his sister’s eyes in her car headlights on her way home as she left the 28 city pens where she volunteers.  She stopped her car and anything that she had on her list to do became second, those babies needed help. The first thing she noticed was that they were scared and was untrusting of humans—can you blame them?  The pups were malnourished and wormy, but no physical issues on any of them.

The shelter volunteer noticed that they were extremely hungry, it then became most important for her to get them some food but she knew that she had to trick them out of their safe haven in a culvert where they were hiding.  Ben was the first one out, he was strong and fearless, as if to say I am ready to take on what is next and he ready to embrace the next chapter of his life. After lots of love by the city shelter volunteers and her rescue angel, the pups are responding with lots of licks and holding on tight to the good life they now have. Ben is a loving normal dog and is in excellent health today. He has warmed up nicely after 6 weeks of daily human contact and continues to be more and more social every day. Ben is still a puppy and is fairly active, playful and has plenty of energy however, he is the male of the of the pack but prefers to let Betty take on the position of order. Make no mistake, he is always ready to step up and back up his sisters if he has to. He plays well with his sisters but there is no doubt that he can take on an alpha position if his new pack needs one, however, he is very easy going and laid back.

Ben has a burning desire to please everyone. He is a bit of a guardian angel himself because when he is around children he has a tendency to diminish their playfulness and become gentler and protective.  He is also very sensitive and gets his feelings hurt easily when you correct him. But if you don’t, he will assume that he is on his own. He is protective, low-maintenance, kind, loyal, loving, energetic, and like his sister, very intelligent. He loves being around you and needs to know that you’re okay because you are his number one priority. The Shepherd breed / Cur’s temperament has proven to be exceptionally affectionate toward women and children. They will often not let a strange man even touch them, which makes it almost impossible for him to be stolen. He will give their life, if needed, to protect his family. We don’t know yet how he is with cats, in the car or a crate. However, these are very trainable behaviors that most dogs need training in. The perfect home is a place with plenty of exercise and he will do well with children.  They are all getting their 3rd puppy shot on 10/31/13 and will then be allowed to be with other dogs.


Ben would love a family that would love to play, hug and run with him. Rescue dogs make wonderful loving pets because they know how lucky they are to be adopted. Ben has an amazing dog inside of him and just needs a family. If you want to be rescued by Ben and you have what it takes to be his owner and want to be the happy ending that we promised him, fill out an application right away.  Ben is a wonderful dog, very sweet and gentle.  We know there is a home where Ben can live the rest of his life.

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.
