ADOPTED ON 07-08-14 – Giving up Duke was hard for his southern foster, he was transported up to a foster in the north and she has already said that giving him up would be will be very hard, they both him but are glad that they are part of Rescue Dog Village Guardian, Inc. who will help him find a new family that will love him as much as she does.  Duke is good with other dogs and like children that are respectful of how they treat animals.  He loves to snuggle and be the center of attention and sometimes forgets that he is not a lap dog!

Through no fault of their own dogs in the south are left by the road to make it on their own, over and over again.  DUKE and his 9 siblings were victims of being born in a place where there are many dogs and no solutions. DUKE’s story is heartfelt; he was found by a stranger who could not take care of the pups herself but stopped anyways and got them to someone who could. The remarkable people who make rescue achievable could not walk away from DUKE and his 9 siblings even though he had 10 dogs herself—now she has 20. We can’t ever envision having 20 dogs in our own home, nerveless, puppies but a rescuer’s spirit is pure and giving.

Puppies come into this world with a clean slate. DUKE’s life is full of play, good food, afternoon naps in the sun and kisses daily from her rescuer that examines every spot on him. DUKE is in a northern foster home and we will begin to know who what he is like soon. However, Labs are healthy dogs and generally will live long lives of 10 to 14 years and are one of the most popular breeds in the USA because they are loyal, loving, affectionate and patient, making great family dogs.  They are highly intelligent, good-natured, very willing and eager to please; they are among the top choices for service dog work. They love to play, especially in water, never wanting to pass up the opportunity for a good swim.

These lively dogs have an excellent, reliable, temperament and are friendly, superb with children and equable with other dogs. They crave human leadership and need to feel as though they are part of the family and are easily trained. This breed of dog is wonderful with people of all ages, interact well with children.

DUKE is in excellent health, ready to leap into your heart and go to his FUR-ever home. If you are the type that want to make a difference this year to a deserving dog in need, DUKE will thank you every day and fill your life with laughter and licks. Our adopters are the most wonderful people who stand to be the last chapter of their rescue story, and the first chapter of their new forever lives!

PUPPIES 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.
