KENOBI AD 06-04-11


ADOPTED 06-04-11 – Over the last few months our rescue has been working with a group of twenty three Nova Scotia duck tolling retrievers that were taken from a puppy mill in south Mississippi where they had been severely neglected. This process has been a work of love that has been both educational and life changing. These particular animals have been a blessing to our rescue, supplying tremendous life growth through their will to survive and their willingness to accept us in our efforts to help them. Out of this process has emerged a true sage ” in the entity of Kenobi, a very intuitive, deep and understanding male of tremendous capacity. Kenobi has been the glue that has held the group together with his leadership and his innate capability to understand that we are trying to help. This guy earned his stripes the hard way, surviving extremely harsh conditions and fighting off a wild hog attack that would have killed most dogs. He has been able to keep his position in spite of the injuries of the hog attack that has left him with a minor limp, all the while keeping his calm and very loving demeanor. We think that Kenobi is ready to just have a life of love and tranquility, a life he has more than earned through many test of tempering. I as the trainer know that he had to step up mightily to lead the dogs through their hard times because his nature is one of a true love sponge.

 During our time together Kenobi has been exposed to adults, small children, other dogs, cats and our volunteer Lou ( the dog spoiler ) he has excelled in all aspects of his exposure and socialization training. This guy will fit in best with a family that has time to love him as he deserves and that truly wants a dog that is happy just to be with them. In his life Kenobi had every reason to give up and quit, he chose to survive, a quality that makes him very, very special. If you are looking for a dog with the insight to understand you, love you for who you are and be happy with just living with you, then you need to look at this guy very closely, he truly is very special.

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.
