BETTY#1 AD 11-23-13


ADOPTED 11-23-13  – The following is the beginning of Betty’s rescue story from her first rescuer who took her 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.

Betty started out her life by being taken from her mother as a baby and was dumped like trash at a local shelter with her brother & sister.  There are angels in the south that know the value of a dog; Betty was a very lucky pup when her rescue angel caught her attention and saw the gleam of Betty and her brother and 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.  Betty was the last one captured because she was so shy, however, you would never know it today. After lots of love by the city shelter volunteers and her rescue angel, the pups are responding with lots of licks. Betty is a loving normal dog and is in excellent health today. She has warmed up nicely after 6 weeks of daily human contact and continues to be more and more social every day.

Betty is still a puppy and is fairly active, playful and has plenty of energy however, her foster mom says that she is not unruly. She plays well with her brother and sister, but behavior of all packs need to have one be the pack leader, Betty has taken on that role. This is very normal behavior with all dogs and she can easily take on a more submissive role with other dogs that are alpha.

Betty has the potential to be trained to be protective of property and family. She is so intelligent that you can predict what she will do under stressful situations. She has an even temperament and is loyal to all members of the family. 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 her to be stolen. She will give their life, if needed, to protect her family.

We don’t know yet how she is with cats, in the car or a crate. However, these are very trainable behaviors that most dogs need to adjust to if needed. The perfect home is a place with plenty of exercise and she will do well with children.  They are getting their 3rd puppy shot on 10/31/13 and will then be allowed to be with other dogs.

Betty would love a family that would love to play, hug and run with her. Rescue dogs make wonderful loving pets because they know how lucky they are to be adopted. Betty has an amazing dog inside of her and just needs a family.

If you want to be rescued by Betty and you have what it takes to be her owner and want to be the happy ending that we promised her, fill out an application right away.  Betty is a wonderful dog, very sweet and gentle.  We know there is a home where Betty can live the rest of her life.

If you have lots of love and time to dedicate to Betty, she will repay you with a lifetime of devotion! All our applicants must be approved and fill out an application.

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.
