GONE TO SOON:  12-14-14 – Drako was a happy dog that enjoyed every minute of his life, and had a knack for sharing that joy with everyone he met. He had a confirmed adopter and he was going to be going to his forever home on December 31st, Rescue Dog Village Guardian, Inc. and Patricks Pals Animal Rescue were preparing him for transport.

It is with a very heavy heart that our friend Drako went to the Rainbow Bridge on Sunday, December 14, 2014. Drako was found by his fosters husband and it was obvious that he was gone. The emptiness we feel in our hearts cannot be put into words. We are going to miss seeing him living those special moments in his new home, experiencing snow, running, playing ball and snapshots of his new life. It is disappointing that he was so close to happiness and it is just so heartbreaking that he will never have the experience of a forever home.

Victims come in many forms and when a dog goes to the bridge from distemper or some sickness, it is somehow strangely more acceptable. Rest in peace sweet Drako, we love the way you love, your sweet smile and beautiful eyes. We will never forget you and we will spread your story so that others can love you like we love you. They will keep you and your story alive; you did not die in vain and you will never be absent from our hearts.

Please keep the RDV and PPAR family in your thoughts as we mourn this loss.

Drako has had a rough beginning to his young life. His mother was a dog named Lexie who was owned by a teenage boy. Once the boy left for college Lexie was abandoned and left to fend for herself. The parents of the teenager considered her “not their problem.” Lexie roamed from house to house going to whoever would feed her and let her sleep on their deck. He and his four siblings were born in January of 2014. Lexie and her pups continued to roam from place to place seeking food and shelter. A neighbor noticed one by one, the pups and Lexie slowly began to disappear, but Drako still hung around. He got along well with their dogs and foster dogs so they decided to keep him and provide him with the care he needed and deserved.

Drako is a male Weimaraner/ Lab mix, 8-9 months old. He is approximately 47lbs, neutered and up to date on all his vaccinations. He gets along well with other dogs both big and small, and seems un-phased by cats. His foster mother has a cat in the house and he really does not seem to notice it is there. He has never tried to chase the neighbor’s cats. He is excellent with kids and has been around children ages 5-12 years old. He has a very low activity level. He enjoys walks and playing for short periods of time, but readily settles down for a nap in the sun on the deck once he is done. He walks well on leash, but still needs some help with his house-training skills. He has done well in the car for the short trips. He has not been crated before. He has no food issues and really loves getting treats! He has no known fears.

Drako would fit in nicely with any family. His new home may include dogs, cats or children. He would enjoy going for daily walks, but would be equally content just to be by your side while you drank your morning cup of coffee. He is so easy going and laid back he would be a pleasure to have in any house. Imagine coming home from a stressful day at work and just needing someone to vent to. He would gladly sit next to you and hang on your every word, and with his eyes say it is OK I will always be here for you, because you are always here for me. Do you have room in your home and heart for Drako?

Weimaraner Personality – The Human Like Dog Breed

Weimaraner’s are very intelligent and sensitive these dogs that love human companionship. They are at their happiest when amongst humans and a member of the family. Many pet owners do mention that they’re just like humans in the way they think about problems. Weims are a very special breed of dogs and most fall in love with them because they have such human characteristics. But, most will love their dependence on human companionship which is exceptionally strong among these dogs, and the fact that they will give so much unconditional love and affection for the family. They’ll lie at your feet or follow you through the house.

Weimaraners are house dogs (like most dogs). They’re temperamentally unsuited to living in a kennel or being kept in the backyard with little human interaction. They are independent thinkers and once he’s trained, the Weimaraner is a versatile dog who can be an up-close-and-personal companion, compete in agility, and be a fine family friend. The typical Weimaraner is friendly, fearless, alert, and obedient, all traits that make him an excellent companion and watchdog

  • Always teach children how to approach and touch dogs
  • Always supervise any interactions between dogs and young children to prevent any biting or ear or tail pulling on the part of either party.
  • Teach your child never to approach any dog while he’s eating or sleeping or to try to take the dog’s food away. No dog, no matter how friendly, should ever be left unsupervised with a child.
  • Children need to be taught how to how to approach and touch dogs, and always supervise any interactions between dogs and young children.
  • No dog should ever be left unsupervised with a child because often-young children don’t understand that a cute little dog, or any dog, might not want “love and kisses.”
  • Never let young children pick up a puppy or small dog. Instead, make them sit on the floor with the dog in their lap. Pay attention to the dog’s body language, and put him safely in his crate if he appears to be unhappy or uncomfortable with the child’s attention.
  • Always teach children how to approach and touch dogs, and always supervise any interactions between dogs.
  • Teach your child never to approach any dog while he’s eating or sleeping or to try to take the dog’s food away. No dog should ever be left unsupervised with a child.
  • Be prepared dogs will protect themselves
  • Most important, it is your responsibility to make sure that your children and the dog are supervised at all times and safe. You cannot leave it up to the dog, the dog is an animal and will behave like an animal. They rely on us to guide and protect them, 24 hours a day, 365 days a year.

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.
