CHIP AD 02-25-12


ADOPTED 02-25-12: Call it fate, chance, or even a miracle, but this is a story where sometimes a matter of minutes can make a difference between life and death.  Our southern rescue partner had been noticing a pregnant dog in a culvert for a few weeks.  She thought that this pretty, pregnant lab belonged to a neighbor up the street.  On her way to the store one Saturday in December, she noticed the dog wasn’t pregnant anymore.  She decided to follow Gracie into the woods and discovered her litter of five puppies.  Gracie and her pups had been dumped in the woods and left to fend for themselves.  It is truly a miracle that they survived the bad weather and dangerous wildlife with no shelter, water, or food.  Poor Gracie had been surviving off a deer carcass.  Sadly, two of the puppies were in such poor condition they had to be put to sleep.  The other three (Chip, Goose, and Bear) are doing fine and have already been checked out by a vet and given their first shots.  Luckily, the four dogs have been taken in by a foster family.  They will all be well socialized as their foster mom has children, other dogs, and chickens.

Chip is one in Gracie’s litter of puppies.  He is a 12 week old lab mix. He is a playful, loving dog who likes to be close to his owner.  He is great with kids and dogs, but it is unknown his behavior with cats.  He would do best in any type of family.  He is a happy go lucky type of guy with a normal activity level.

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.
