LEXIE#2 AD 03-30-13


ADOPTED 03-30-13 – Our beautiful Lexie came to us after being abandoned, the family moved away and left our girl to fend for herself while locked in the vacate house. Due to the efforts of a Good Samaritan neighbor Lexie was rescued and brought into our German shepherd rescue. Lexie is a true silver, female German shepherd, approximately 90 pounds and 2 years of age. After a very short period in our care Lexie has blossomed into an exceptionally attractive, very loving, happy and downright wonderful girl! Early on she was withdrawn and depressed but true to the classic strength of the breed Lexie has refused to dwell on her past and has chosen instead embrace her self esteem with gusto. Every minute that our team spends with this wonderful creature enhances all of our lives, we are amazed at the shear depth of her character, her poise and her ability to share goodness and happiness, and she truly is a blessing. Lexie thrives in the presence of people, especially children, where her heart just shines with their attention. Our girl is also very much at ease with other dogs, playing gently, attentive to all social needs and typically just mesmerizes the pack. Lexie represents the breed well, reflecting great intelligence, strength of character, power, friendliness, gentleness and a strong but in control protective instinct.

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.
