GERI AD(S) 01-11-13


ADOPTED (S) 01-11-13 – is almost 2 years old.  She was rescued from a high kill shelter in Memphis, TN while she was very pregnant.  She gave birth to 10 puppies a few days after being rescued from the shelter (5/6/2012).  GERI was a wonderful and loving mother to her pups – even though only 6 were healthy enough to survive.

She is now done taking care of her babies and she is ready to be someone’s baby.   GERI is housetrained, spayed, in excellent health, and up-to-date on her shots.  She gets along with people of all ages as well as other pets.

Here are 3 videos of Geri, she is truly a wonderful dog!

GERI is very playful and energetic.  She will do great with someone who lives an active lifestyle.  She also bonds very easily with people and has been temperament tested to be a therapy dog or a companion dog.

Due to her energy level and strength, GERI will need an experienced dog owner who can continue to reinforce her obedience training.  Also, GERI has had a couple of bad experiences with other dogs in the past – so, even though she plays well with most dogs, we prefer for her to be the only dog in her forever home.

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.
