JETT AD 12-08-12


ADOPTED 12-08-12 – Imagine a dog who had never walked on grass before he came to his foster home! This gentle giant was rescued from an illegal breeder who kept himaway from the good life of exercise and play outside that every dog deserves. He was starved and emaciated when he was brought home to safety. Jett is a young 7 years old. He just wants someone to love and a place to lay his head. This 80 pound Lab is now in perfect health thanks to the care and love of his foster family. He comes to his new adopter housebroken, spayed and up to date on all his shots–and ready to become your best friend.

Jett is a mellow sort of fellow. He’s content to lay on the floor while you go about your daily activities at home. He loves kids and has no problem with kitties. He likes to walk, so if you like to take a leisurely stroll, he’s perfectly happy to accompany you without pulling on his leash. But once back inside, Jett becomes a couch potato. He loves to cuddle with kids and thinks he’s a lap dog. He currently lives with two dogs and has shown no aggression towards them whatsoever.

Since Jett was starved at his first residence (we can’t call it a home!), you would think he would be possessive towards his food. But he’s not. You can put your hand in his bowl while he’s eating and he wouldn’t nip at you. He doesn’t take food from other dogs and is content just to have his own bowl of food show up every meal time.

Jett will happily ride in the car with you, so if you have the ability to bring him to work with you, he’d love it. If not, he is crate trained and will enjoy the times you can take him on trips to the store or the park or the pet store with you.  As long as there is someone to love him and care for him, Jett doesn’t ask for much more. If you have room in your life for a dog who is laid back, loving and very smart, Jett is a good match.

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.
