ADOPTED ON 03-25-16 – This is a rescue story that needs to be told, posting the adoption is not the story. The best way to start to tell Bitsy and Zelda’s story is to say, hold on to your heart. Rescue Dog Village is an observer and can only tell the story–it is a true American rescue story with all the elements of rescue angels and heroes who show up to save the day.
Bitsy and her friend Zelda were picked up in 17 degree weather in the sleet and ice from where they had been dumped as 6 week old puppies—equal to a baby under a year. They were nearly frozen and starved to death. The rescue angel, immediately rushed them to the vet and they were hospitalized until they were strong enough to come home—who paid for that?
For eighteen months their rescue angel—also known as a foster–has loved, fed, taken them to the vet, cleaned up after them and made sure every month they had the most important part of life, human compassion and love. Our angel never gave up on them, nope, she was NEVER going to see them left again, not matter how long it took. She wanted not just any home, she wanted the BEST home. Our southern rescue angel reached out to the observe and asked to help her place these sweet girls who have waited so long to have their chance at a great life.
Before we get to the ending, we want to tell you about sweet Bitsy. Bitsy is an 18 month old pretty yellow lab mix that has been waiting for a forever home, and as patient as she is, we just know she would be the happiest pup ever to have a warm bed and loving family to call her own. She is gentle good-natured and a fun spirited dog; she lives to bounce around, play tag and chase other dogs. She is a sweet low keyed girl, loves kids and all other humans, plays great, loves to wrestle and play chase. She is a fantastic walking partner or fireside companion—that is what our southern rescue angel tells us about her. She just needed her own family to love her—-this is where the hero shows up.
Never in our wildest dreams could we have imagined a more perfect life for Bitsy and Zelda. Enter our hero that fell in love with Bitsy and when she talked to her southern foster and heard the story – she could not walk away and leave Zelda behind. These are the untold stories of angels and heroes who open their homes, hearts and wallets to make sure that these sweet babies NEVER have another cold night. They want to guarantee that Bitsy and Zelda are warm, fed and well taken care of. Bitsy’s hero fell in love with her and could not leave Zelda – by the way, she is also called an adopter.
Rescue Dog Village – the observer – is compelled to tell their story because the foster and adopter would never want to take any credit or tell you who they are—because they do it because they are the best of the best and truly a dogs best friend.

- Always teach children how to approach and touch dogs
- Always supervise any interactions between dogs and young children to prevent any biting or ear or tail pulling on the part of either party.
- Teach your child never to approach any dog while he’s eating or sleeping or to try to take the dog’s food away. No dog, no matter how friendly, should ever be left unsupervised with a child.
- Children need to be taught how to how to approach and touch dogs, and always supervise any interactions between dogs and young children.
- No dog should ever be left unsupervised with a child because often-young children don’t understand that a cute little dog, or any dog, might not want “love and kisses.”
- Never let young children pick up a puppy or small dog. Instead, make them sit on the floor with the dog in their lap. Pay attention to the dog’s body language, and put him safely in his crate if he appears to be unhappy or uncomfortable with the child’s attention.

IMPORTANT POINTS ABOUT PACK LEADERS
It is a natural instinct for a dog to have an order in its pack, therefore, the only way your relationship with your dog can be a complete success you must be the pack leader:
- When we humans live with dogs, we become their pack
- The entire pack cooperates under a single leader
- Lines are clearly defined and rules are set
- Dogs communicates his displeasure with growling and eventually biting
- Humans MUST be higher up in the order than the dog.
- The humans must be the ones making the decisions, not the dogs.
Schedule Feeding Time – Find your dog’s schedule so that you can work with that
- Feed your dog on a regular schedule time, always within a half hour of the time
Schedule Water – Help your dog bee successful
- Keep a schedule for water, however, you should design a schedule that fits you
- Remove the water dish after the first feeding in the morning
- After the night feeding, leave water dish for two hours, then take it up
- Before your last walk for the night, put the water dish down about an hour before
- Then walk your dog 45 minutes after he has had water. There will might be days where that might be an exception for water.
Schedule Walking Time – Find your dog’s schedule, then gently move it to your schedule.
- Start by taking the dog out every two hours for two days, if he goes every two hours,
- Then take him out every three hours, for two days,
- until you reach the time frame you need – every six hours—eight hours etc
The biggest problem is once a dog has had one accident in the house, there is a urine smell that the dog detects and his instinct to continue mark where he smells urine. This is how wild dogs let other dogs know that this territory is taken and for dogs not in the pack to go elsewhere. If you keep the house clean and pour some urine outside where you want him to go and then praise him when he marks there you will find house-breaking goes very easily.
