CHARLIE #2 AD 12-22-12


ADOPTED 12-22-12 – Charlie’s story is a sad one with a happy ending. He was one of 15 dogs pulled from a hoarding situation. When he was rescued he was starved both for food and for love and attention. He is 5-6 years old (but a big puppy!) and 68 pounds. The happy part of the story is that now Charlie is being well-cared for and is awaiting the forever home that he deserves.

Charlie’s only desires in life are to have human companionship and food to call his own. He’s a purebred with a clean bill of health. His vet check on 11/14/12 proves he’s a hearty soul. He’s A-Ok, but needs to take some fish oil to bring his skin and coat back to full luster. Other than that, he’s on no medication whatsoever.

Do you have time to snuggle with this coddler on your couch and take him for leisurely walks? He would love a home where he can show how sweet his is to you every day. If you’re home all day, that would be great, as he would be delighted to be with you while you go about your day. He’ll carry his stuffed toy around to show you or quietly enjoy a Kong toy filled with peanut butter at your feet. He wants to make his people happy.

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.
