RED AD 10-01-20


Our vet has recommended that all dogs under 6 months not to spay or neuter the pups because they are too young and their bodies are not fully developed.  Adoption donation includes transport and all vaccinations, except for the Lyme—therefore, the dogs will not need to get any vaccinations for the first

ADOPTED ON 10-01-20: It is stories like Reds that we realize how devastating it is for a dog to be completely thrown away with no remorse! For those that love animals, Red’s story is one that is very hard to think about and it leaves a paw print on his rescuers, his story is one that we tell others—we just can’t believe that this loyal special dog was left the way he was.


Red was dropped off at the home of our southern partner’s, Patricia, mother’s home—the thing is–no one lives there. When Patricia first discovered Red under the carport, of course, she fed him; she tried to call him down to her house but he refused to go. Instead, this faithful, courageous, devoted dog, just sat there on that carport for three solid days watching the highway thinking that surely whoever dropped him off would eventual come back to get him!

Finally on the fourth day, Patricia loaded him in a crate in her car and carried him to her house and put him in the back yard with all her dogs. Red took a little while to adjust, he was sure that his owners would come back; finally he settled in and stop looking toward the road for his previous owners. He soon accepted his new home.

Red is a very playful dog and is extremely devoted to his foster family. We think that he could be part Boxer which explains the loyalty in him. He is alert and will be good with kids, however, we recommend children over the age of seven. If he or his family feels threatened, he is brave and will show his protective side. He gets along well with other, he is somewhat independence, and responds well to positive reinforcement, like all dogs. He can be rather affectionate and enjoy spending lots of time with you.  He is about one years old, vaccinated and neutered. He is presently being treated for heartworms. He will be ready to come up in June. Once his treatment is done, heartworm dogs live long and happy lives. Just like any other worm, once it is gone, it is gone.

Red is young and healthy, does fine around kids and other dogs but will step up if he has to with his other fosters friends and will make sure the others aren’t out of line. He is not aggressive but he is an alpha male when he needs to be and he wants to test sample every bowl to make sure no one has anything any better than his! Patricia laughs because it is very common for many dogs to test the food – presently, an 8lb Maltese does the same thing in another rescuer home. Red would do best in a home with a female dog or as an only dog and in a home with no cats! He is very obedient and when corrected, he rarely needs to be corrected a second time, he kind of looks at you with those light golden brown crystal eyes as if to say: OKAY, I GET IT.

Red has proven that he loves his owners and has shown Patricia and her grandchildren, they tell us that he has a consistent sweet side—loving life. He does all she asks him to do and just wants to please; he does well on a leash; maybe he was trained before he was dumped. We are looking for a family that will welcome him into their home, give him the warm, loving forever home he deserves and to commit to a lifetime of love and devotion and not to give up on him – his heart just would not recover.

ABOUT THE BREED: Personality traits offer a gentle, affectionate and energetic dog eager to please that generally does well with other dogs and children. Vizslas thrive on human companionship. Vizslas are sometimes referred to as ‘Velcro dogs’ for their constant desire for closeness to the pack, four and two legged. Vizsla’s are loving, gentle and are reliable with children. They are able to adapt quickly to family life, and is generally good with other dogs.


Loving, Affectionate, And Very Clean
Our Red Lab/Vizsla mix is the most affectionate dog we’ve ever had. He’s a total Velcro dog, follows us everywhere. He’s always ready to go. He acts like a cat, always grooming himself, Vizslas are notorious for doing this –they’re extremely clean. He’s very protective of us and his home. He could probably be a bomb dog because he’ll smell and find anything! We love him so much.

Beautiful, Loving Velcro Dog
I absolutely love my Viszla. She is the most affectionate dog I have ever known. I take her with me almost everywhere I go and she loves riding in the truck. We’ve even taken her on several overnights and she does well in a hotel room. I would recommend this breed to anyone who has time to spend exercising them. We walk daily and she has the run of our fenced-in yard. She loves everyone.

Disclaimer: Please note that the breeds posted on our dogs’ biographies are our best guess based on years of working with rescue dogs. Adopters who need to know the exact breed or mix of breeds of a particular dog must have the dog’s DNA tested at their own expense.



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.
