SLOAN AD 07-28-18


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 year. 

ADOPTED ON 07-28-18 –  Sloan is a shining star; you can’t go wrong with this puppy as he has an enormous heart and an amazing personality. The lucky family that adopt him will have a buddy for life. He enjoys swimming and any adventure you may take him on. He is easy to please and train; when he eagerly jiggles his tail everywhere he is letting you know that he is your best friend.  Sloan shows his playful and sweet personality when he looks at you with his expressive soulful eyes leaving behind a sense of knowing the he understands every word you say.

Sloan is comical to watch; he would do well with a family with children, someone that is home a lot or works from home or a home with someone that is retired and looking for a companion. Like all puppies, Sloan is a playful and curious little boy, but he is not high energy, however, like any puppy he will instigate play and tug of war games with his foster dogs. Everyone he meets—including our vet and her staff who remarked on his fur markings which were exceptional in comparison to other dogs, said as they surrounded him like he was a rock star, that they loved his personality. Our vet said that he won’t get much bigger than 35 lbs., on May 30th he weighed 30 lbs.  He is patient and protective of the younger pack in his Preston CT foster home.

Sloan is a social dog and social dogs need to be with their “family members”; therefore, it is important that he is included in all family events and occasions. Sloan has been with as many as 20 dogs in his southern foster home and nine in his norther foster home, consequently, if he is the only dog, his forever family needs to make sure they don’t leave him alone on a daily basis for long hours.

It is essential to note that adult family members need to teach any children that are around their dog how to approach and touch dogs, in addition, dogs and children must always be supervise with any interactions between dogs and young visiting or family members. Teach your child never to approach any dog while he’s sleeping or eating or to try to take the dog’s food away. No dog should ever be left unsupervised with a child.

Sloan is ready to slide right into your heart, do you have the requirements of a forever home of his own and endless love to celebrate his special qualities? Now all he needs is many years where he can continue to be a happy and loyal member of a family. Sloan is ready, able and willing to steal your heart and rock your world. He’ll certainly take your happiness level up a few notches, and provide hours of laughter with his snatch and run games of—chase me. His northern foster says that when she pets the side of his face, he narrows and closes his eyes as if to expressing that it feels so good.

An ideal home for him would be one where he can be with his humans and go with them wherever he goes. He has a laid back personality so he would be a great match if there was another dog to play and romp with and share his days, though it’s not mandatory. A fence would be helpful however, if he is walked, he will need extra walks until he is older. He loves to swim, adores humans and he always returns his appreciation with unconditional devotion. This attentive and smart little fellow is just looking for love and a home. He has proven himself to be utterly deserving of the best and we are committed to see that he gets that.

Will you open your heart to him and give him the love he so deserves? In return, his companionship and friendship will be with you every day.

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.
