HANNAH AD 10-29-11


This beautiful young female German shepherd dog (Hannah ) came to our rescue via a high kill shelter in Louisiana. She was malnourished, depressed, sick and absolutely committed to surviving, her eyes told a story that I could not ignore. Hannah has a depth of character that is quite uncommon and especially attractive. Working with this young lady has been a journey of soul searching and unconditional love. Hannah carries the basic German shepherd defining characteristics of bond and devotion to levels that I have seldom seen. As a person that spends most of his waking hours helping abused and abandoned animals socialized, it is always a very special treat when you she a dog like Hannah recover so totally, so quickly. This GSD is extremely bright and totally committed to the future.

HANNAH is extremely lovable. Take a look at these three short videos to see how charming he is!!”

Hannah is going to always be a smaller GSD (approx. 55-60 lbs) due to stunting resulting from poor nutrition when she was young. This can be an attribute for someone who does not require a large GSD.

Hannah is great with other dogs in any situation and absolutely adores children, always reflecting extreme gentleness and insight. We have trained Hannah on the leash as well as a set of basic commands; she is also house trained and shows absolutely no signs of any unacceptable behavior.

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.
