HONEY#1 AD 02-18-12


ADOPTED 02-18-12 – Our dog rescue group works predominately with German shepherd dogs but occasionally we will help with other very special animals, in this case a beautiful golden retriever female named honey. This wonderful lady came to us via a call for help from a gentleman with a terminal health disease; he wanted to make sure that his girl was well cared for. Now honey is big ball of spoiled rotten, famously happy just being with you and insisting that you need no one else. At 7 years of age, 65 pounds in weight, flowing red/gold coat and indomitable spirit, honey is a mature, settled and sound definition of the breed. We have found that this girl has plenty of energy for her age, loves her walks and play time with her person. Though still uncertain what has happened to her she has made a determined effort to embrace her new environment, emphasizing her depth of character and resolve.

Honey is well trained performing well on the leash, showing a full grasp of her basic commands and house manners. She plays well with other dogs but would rather not share her person. Honey absolutely thrives in the presence of people of all ages, but is drawn to children that are calm with her. Honey has the wonderful soul that only comes from maturity, of having been there and done that. If you are looking for an exceptional chance to help a loving and deserving dog, a dog that will return far more than you can ever give, then please hurry and apply for the ” lady ” honey.

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.
