JACK#1 TD 03-09-13


TD 03-09-13  AVAILABLE WITH DOGS 2nd CHANCE – They say that black dogs and cats have a harder time getting adopted. We hope that’s not the case with Jack. He’s a lovable German Shepherd/Collie mix who is just waiting to go to his forever home. Jack is now one year old and was found as a stray in Memphis, TN, last summer.  For the first 6+ months of his life, Jack was kenneled at a local animal clinic until a foster home opened up for him.  Despite spending just about half of his life in a kennel, Jack is a friendly and well-socialized dog.  He plays well with other dogs and he loves to be around people, kids and cats. This sweet boy needs an active person or family as he is still young and enjoys running/herding, walking and playing.  He settles down inside the house and really enjoys being around his humans.

Jack is already house trained.  He is up-to-date on his shots and neutered. Jack has a mild deformity of both rear legs.  It does NOT hurt him or affect his mobility in anyway.  In fact, most people do not notice it. (The vet says this is a genetic condition in which his growth plates didn’t grow properly.) We think it makes him all the more special.

This darling is desperately in need of a loving home where he will get lots of attention and adequate exercise.  Do you think you could make room in your heart for Jack?  If so, please complete an application for him today!

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.
