CUPCAKE AD 09-15-12


ADOPTED 09-15-12 – Cupcake was picked up as a stray by animal control, ultimately ending up in a high kill shelter. If you are a lab lover, but are looking to downsize, meet Cupcake. Cupcake is a purebred mix white mini lab approximately 30 pounds with medium energy. Daily walks and playing in the yard with children and/or other dogs seems to satisfy this girl’s energy level.

It’s hard to know where to start when describing this social butterfly. Cupcake is a very friendly, social dog. She is well behaved in the house, showing no destructive tendencies at all. She likes attention from people of all ages. Cupcake is excellent with kids. She is exposed daily to a 4 year old and 12 year old in her foster home. Cupcake is good with other dogs – she is a little on the dominant side (some jealously with the other dogs around her foster mom) however there’s plenty of competition in her foster home with 7 other dogs, both small and large dogs. So if you’re thinking how she could possibly be better, well she is all that and more. Cupcake also shares her foster home with 2 cats. There have been no issues. Cupcake shows interest in the kitties, watching and following.  As with any dog, until Cupcake is well integrated into her new home it is recommended that she not be left with cats unsupervised.

Cupcake appears to be housetrained. She rides well in the car and handles well on a leash. There have been no signs of food aggression or inordinate fear.   Cupcake is micro-chipped, heartworm negative, on monthly HW preventative and spayed.

With all of this said, Cupcake should do well in any home setting – family with kids, a couple or a single person – she is a friendly pup so you must be ready to give her the attention she deserves.

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.
