GABE AD(S) 01-22-13


ADOPTED (S) 01-22-13 –It is amazing how much we can learn from dogs. They are all loving, all forgiving and never judge. Gabe is proof that this is true. His rescue story is hard to read but must be told because it teaches us all about the cruelty of humans and the reason that rescues must continue their work. Gabe was shot through his bottom jaw and it was brutally fractured, someone tried to kill him. He was found by an angel that took him to a vet and had his jaw pieced back together; Gabe is almost fully recovered and ready for a loving home. The left side of his face will always be a little crooked but that makes him very unique and gives him the individual character that he possess inside as well as outside.

Gabe has a life span of 10 to 14 years and has a beautiful spotted, brindle, solid, or patched coat of many striking colors. He is a good swimmer, is protective of his family and can be dogmatic about who is and isn’t trustworthy, in other words, he is an excellent judges of character. He is already showing us that he is loving, calm and a dedicated companion.

Gabe’s personality is a very sweet; he needs a special loving home.
Take a look at this short video to see how charming he is!!”

Gabe loves everyone and gets along very well with dogs and cats; he has a super friendly temperament. He is about a year old and weighs 35 lbs. He is up to date on all vaccinations, heartworm negative, on heartworm preventative, neutered and micro chipped. He is an active pup but he likes to snuggle and relax indoors too. He doesn’t mind sleeping in a crate and he rarely barks unless he has a good reason to. He is housetrained; leash trained and would make a great addition to any family and would be good with a family with children. Gabe has a pure heart and the kind of dog that you remember for a lifetime.

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.
