PLEASE HELP SAVE MITZI / IVY RESCUE DOG VILLAGE GUARDIAN, Inc Confirms and Endorses that this is a valid plea and all funds will go towards the family and medical care for Mitzi / Ivy.

Rescue is more then giving a dog a home, it is a VILLAGE of heartfelt dog lovers that will give their hearts and their last dollar to make sure a dog has a happy life. All of us at RDVG pray that this family raises the money they need for medical bills. The following is a plea from the family for help and a link to Go Fund Me for donations that goes to the family for her bills, your donations are tax-deductible:

We rescued our baby, Ivy, when she was four months old. She is now nine months and has been diagnosed with heartworm disease. Ivy had heart worms prior to our family rescuing her, but showed no symptoms. Recently, Ivy collapsed and began to cough and vomit. We took her to the hospital, and upon running a bunch of tests, we were made aware of her condition. The hospital stay and diagnostics costed about ,700 and our vet has estimated that between more tests, medication, and the actual procedure to kill the worms, everything will cost another ,500.

Unfortunately, Ivy’s liver enzymes were elevated and doctors must run more tests to determine whether this elevation is being caused by the heart worms, or if this is a separate issue. We are hoping for the best. From the moment our family adopted Ivy, she has brought us nothing but joy. She is simply a fun-loving, cuddly, and crazy pup! We want nothing more than to be able to save the newest member of our family, but finances are making this hard time even harder on us. We love our baby so much and just want to give her the chance to be a healthy and care-free puppy. The smallest donation is immensely appreciated. Thank you from the bottom of our hearts.


Please share Mitzi/Ivy’s story until this family has what they need to be sure she has a long life. In many cases, the dogs rescue the adopter, in Ivy’s case, she has touched the heart of those that share her story and give to help this wonderful family.This is a Rescue Dog Village dog, please consider helping this family with her medical bills. No donation is too small.

If you are unable to donate, please share with your friends on Facebook, Twitter and Pincrest. All donations go to the family, donations are not collected thru RDVG.

ADOPTED ON 12-10-16 – Mitzi and her siblings Cody and Zach were abandoned at a little elderly lady’s house and they found their way under her wheelchair ramp. When the sitter got there the next morning she heard the little puppies crying; they were only about five weeks old then and much too young to be away from their mother.  Thankfully the sitter was kind hearted enough that she reached out for help and she brought the puppies to a RDVG foster in LA; they have been with her since they were five weeks.

The pups are about three months, up-to-date on all their vaccinations and ready for their new homes. Each litter mate is precious, they have a forgiving nature, come with a clean slate and no baggage. However, we do not know if they are siblings, or if they could have different fathers, but they were all rescued together. Mitzi and Zach are a little smaller than Cody

Mitzi is surely a sweet mixture of all things great, she is absolutely the sweetest little girl. Her foster has grown attached to her loving personality, Mitzi appreciates any attention she gets and her favorite spot is when she is held in your arms.  She will snuggle up against your neck. Also, when you pick her up she lets you cradle her and hold her on your shoulder like a little baby—she is a very special dog, therefore, we need for her to have a very special family. Her face lights up when she runs around the yard—you can see that every inch of her is full of joy. When she is running, she wants to show you how fast she can run but she is always ready to snuggle.

Mitzi is still a puppy and will need heaps of play time and exercise. As she grows over the next few months, like most dogs, she will calm down nevertheless, when she is inside, she settles in nicely and will curly up with her human. She is a dog social dog, which means that she gets along with other dogs and loves her fosters grandchildren and anyone else that she meets. She greets everyone with a smile and tail wag, if she could talk, you could almost hear her say, “Hey, come on in, how are you today”?

A home with another dog would be nice for her but not required, however, because she is a social dog and if her new family doesn’t have furry friends for her, she could still be happy as long as her human family satisfied her dazzling social personality. Children would be a plus, she is a perfect companion for someone that works from home, or an active family that takes their dog to games or jogs.

This adorable gal is looking for a loving family that will dote on her and treat her as she deserves–a lifetime cherished member. Our rescue works from our hearts for our dogs; it is the least we can do for them because they deserve nothing less. We owe it to our dogs that the wonderful people who stand to be the last chapter of their rescue and the first chapter of their new forever lives deserve her.

Like all rescue dogs, Mitzi needs a safe and comfortable environment where she will continue to thrive, grow and blossom into the amazingly special dog she’s always been. The only thing missing? A forever home of her own and endless love to celebrate her special qualities! If you think you might be a great match for Mitzi, please fill out an on-line application today contained in this bio!


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.
