BUNNY AD 03-13-14


ADOPTED 03-13-14 – Bunny is an adorable little pint-sized Red Merle Chihuahua. Her ears go up and down when she is listening and when she gets excited hence the name “Bunny”. She plays boss with the bigger dogs and surprisingly they go along with it. Bunny takes awhile to warm up to men because she has not really been exposed to them. Bunny settles in my lap at night and teethes on my finger and then falls asleep on my lap. I usually put her in her crate and she sleeps through the night. Bunny loves to cuddle up with the other dogs and they treat her like their baby. She loves to zip up and down the halls and toss her toy in the air. She is the perfect little angel.

Here is a short video of Bunny

Video – Looking Around

ABOUT THE BREED Chihuahuas are comical, entertaining, and loyal little dogs, absolutely brimming with personality – often a quirky and eccentric personality unmatched by any other breed. Other than that overview, Chihuahuas are extremely variable. Merles are the newest style to hit Chihuahuas. The coat pattern has only shown up in the breed in the past 15 years or so. The Chihuahua is an excellent companion for singles and the elderly. They are very spry and can leap as high as cats; they’re also great at avoiding being stepped on! Not daunted by size, they are bold and brave watchdogs that send a threatening, surprisingly deep bark when strangers enter their range.

Of course, because they are small, their bark is much worse than their bite! Chihuahuas are small creatures that don’t require a lot of space; they fit in perfectly with an apartment environment. Because of their size, they are especially sensitive to cold and actually NEED the doggie sweaters you can buy at your local pet store. They don’t need a large yard and, quite frankly, shouldn’t be given a place to roam freely as they can easily fit through small spaces. Chihuahuas are adorable, tiny dogs that make great companions. Not only are they the oldest dog breed in North America, they are also the smallest breed in the entire world. Also, because of their tiny size, Chihuahuas usually require a body harness rather than a leash and require several walks a day. They tire quickly and really only need to walk a block or so; but if you want to continue walking, you can always carry them around with you. The typical life expectancy of a Chihuahua is 14 to 18 years.

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.
