CHECKERS AD 08-12-11


ADOPTED 08-12-11 – Bromius aka Checkers is a sweet lovable pup.  At first, he was frightened and had that shell shock look in his eyes. His foster mom took him home and introduced him to her 8 dogs; they accepted him right away.  Checkers  saw that her dogs liked her, wanted to be with her and that I could be trusted.  He takes morning walks and runs for a tennis balls into the pond for the dogs to fetch. Checkers is not much for fetching but he loves to swim.  He wags his tail again and on the third day he gave me his new foster mom one lick kiss and she has received many many great doggie kisses since then.  He likes to chew on dog toys and seems to like being a member of my doggie gang.  Checkers is a sweet, sweet gentle dog.

Checkers is under weight and his coat was matted in some places; the matting had to be trimmed. He is sweet and gentle.  He will bark when excited and playing with other dogs and he likes to swim.  He likes to chew but that is expected at his age.  He is cautious of people at first but once he gets to know you, he likes to play.  He is very affectionate and likes to be petted and curls up next to you once he trusts you.

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.
