CINDY AD 09-10-11


ADOPED 09-10-11 – Cindy is a lovely female German shepherd dog of wondrous depth and ability that unfortunately was given up to be euthanized after her owner died. Our rescue has refused to let her face such a fate and has placed her in our care. This unique, brilliant and loving girl has been a joy to work with and a blessing to anyone that has made contact with her.

Cindy’s was Seeing Eye assistant for her previous owner who was a blind, retired fireman. This dog was totally devoted to her owner and his well being, being abandoned was devastating for her. The strength of her character surfaced as she allowed us to become first her friends and intimately trusted humans that she knew would let no harm come to her. I wish we could say that Cindy was the beneficiary of our rescues’ effort, in truth we gained more understanding of life from her than the other way around.


The person who adopts this glorious girl will have to understand that her time with them will be a true blessing but also an ongoing work of love. Cindy is an older dog of ten plus years and as a result has some signs of light arthritis that will undoubtedly progress. At the present time she is active, playful, loving and graceful, reflecting no outward signs of any issues.

This lady is great with other dogs, wonderful with children and ignores cats. She works well, as you can imagine, on a leash, dealing well with any situation. This highly trained and motivated girl will fit in any environment where she is sincerely loved and allowed to take care of her “family “. If you are looking for a new family member and are lucky enough to adopt Cindy you will find that your life has been greatly enhanced.

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.
