FULLY VETTED SPAYED
SLICK COAT, BLACK/RED/TAN
LEASH, HOUSE AND BASIC COMMAND TRAINED

 

Saving, rehabilitation and training is the drive behind our German shepherd rescue but occasionally we bump into that special creature that by all standards should not survive and then god steps in. This “chosen” one is a tiny, one year old, girl that has never looked back, never doubted herself and believes she owns the world, her name is gracious Gretta. Now healthy, our girl is the life of the party at our training facility, chasing the big dogs, playing with the trainers and manipulating everybody (dogs and humans). Gretta will never be a big shepherd, probably no more than 55-60 pounds, due to starvation and lack of care. What our girl has done is amaze all that have been associated with her, her grace, her depth, her courage, her warmth and her loving ways just enamors all around her.

Though tiny Gretta handles the big dogs with ease, making them understand that brains trumps brawn. Our girl has great instincts, showing a strong but totally in control protective drive. Ms. Gretta gets along very well with other dogs, adult humans but is especially good with children. What our girl lacks in size she more than makes for with speed, agility and brain power. There is very little that Gretta could not be trained to do, she is almost scary smart. It probably comes through in my writing that i think she is something quite special, she had every right to hate, quit and die but she chose the opposite and excelled! Gretta handled all of our training and socialization programs with ease, reflecting a strong human desire, an affinity for training, great social skills and the heart of a lion. Our girl has great symmetry, perfect gait and a solid frame. If you are looking for a truly superior new family member, this sweetheart is a no brainer..

PLEASE TAKE A MINUTE TO CHECK OUT THE SECTION BELOW

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.
