IZZY AD 10-26-13


ADOPTED 10-26-13 –Dog rescue had made progress over the last ten years, but it still has a long way to go. Izzy is a part of the change; she is a charming dog that lives in an area in the south that just 3 short years ago, virtually every animal captured was euthanize. An army of loving volunteers gathered together and work 12 to 14 hour days, without pay; they are determined to make more changes. Izzy and her brother were captured by animal control but now, volunteers work daily to help a captured dog, which has given her a chance at living a wonderful life.

Video’s of Izzy, she is so cute:

Izzy is very loyal to her foster family and follows them around everywhere. She is eager to please, very smart, affectionate; and an even-tempered dog which makes her ideal for a family. Izzy possess a gentle soul however, she is still a little cautious when she meets new people. She is very comfortable around children and dogs. She gains more and more confidence every day because the volunteers give her daily attention and affection—she responds with her whole heart.  She loves any attention you will give her and wants to spend time with people young and old. Her foster mom has grandchildren that visit; they are 5 & 7 years old and Izzy will follow them around when they come over. In addition, one of the volunteers noticed that she also did very well with a 3 year old that visited the shelter.

Izzy’s activity level is moderate which makes her a good choice for a family with children. She won’t knock children down or run through the house. She enjoys playing with the other dogs at the foster home but takes a submissive posture. Her foster mom tells us that she does like to see another small dog so she would make a perfect companion for a family with another dog. She tries to play with her foster sister who is a Momma. Even though momma has told her several times that she is not playing–Izzy will eventually win her over!

Izzy will only need a walk in the morning and evening; then just before bedtime, she can go out in the yard on a leash for a last chance to go if she needs to. We recommend this to our adopters because it helps the dog have an opportunity to empty their bladder and avoid accidents. Her current daily routine consists of 3 hours out of her crate in the morning, one hour at noon, and a couple of hours in the evening. She does like her crate which is very helpful for a family that works because it will keep her safe while they are gone. Her foster mom has brought her into her home and has had no problems at all. She is totally house trained but keep in mind that a change in routine can cause accidents and once she learns her new schedule she will adjust.

Even though she has not been around cats, we feel that she will do very well with them and might be the type of dog that cuddles with a cat at night. Izzy is in excellent health, she was spayed 9/30/13 and has had her stitches are out. She has been fully vaccinated, wormed, was tested for heartworm and is negative. Here foster mom has her on HW and flea prevention. In just over a short week, her mom has noticed improvement in the texture and condition of her coat. She eats well next to dogs so she has no food protection issues or shows any fears, including gun fire. She is good in the car, excellent in a crate and on a leash

Izzy would enjoy being around other dogs, for sure. A home with lots of attention, including children, would also be great! This dignified sweet girl is laid back, loves a good meal, a romp in the yard, a soft bed and a warm lap. She would enjoy having her head pat and is still young enough to enjoy squeaky toys; she happily runs and plays with his foster siblings daily. She is cheerful when a human is by her side and will make someone out there a great friend. In return, she promises years of devotion and unconditional love.

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.
