LILLY#3 AD 05-07-13


ADOPTED 05-07-13  – Imagine that you are a year old and you are living outside, hungry, terrified and left to deal with the elements of rain, wind and cold. While this is the story that was the beginning for Rescue Dog Village Guardian, Inc., it was the life of 9 pups. Found by southern angels that could not walk away, Rescue Dog Village Guardian, Inc. received a plea for help and could not say no. Taking on 9 pups with severe sarcoptic mange is a huge responsibility and the chances that the life of a pup that has been living outside will be successful, has the odds stacked against them; in most cases, it does not turn out well. Parvo and other life threatening diseases prey on the sick and young, however, that did not sway the 2 southern angles and 2 vets; their heroic dedication is contagious.

In addition, the pups were extremely underweight and the concern that they might have other possible life threatening diseases was a huge undertaking. That was 6 weeks ago and they are doing well, growing their hair back, do not have Parvo and are slowly putting on weight. The physical problems are getting under control but the emotional scars shows on each of their faces. They are all starving for love!!!! There are two young southern girls who take care of them daily and are working with them but the progress is slow.

WITH MEDICAL EXPENSES FOR THE PUPS – the medical expenses for these sweet loving pups are more than our adoption fee and we need donations. Any gift is not too small, these pups will also have many other needs if that is something that appeals to you, they will need flea & tick medication, HW pills, toys, beds and coats. They only weigh between 10-15 lbs and will need their 3rd puppy shots so your donation can go towards that if you want. If you would like to help with their medical needs once they arrive, that would be a great way to help a dog directly.

LILLY gets along very well with other dogs but can be a little stand offish with people at times. This will change as she learns that she can trust humans, even thought she was treated badly by someone. Andrea, Rachel and the 2 vets that are working with them have made progress and report that she is warming up to people nicely. LILLY needs a family that would love to play, hug and run with her. Rescue dogs make wonderful loving pets because they know how lucky they are to be adopted. LILLY has an amazing dog inside of her and just needs a little time to come out and will flourish with the love and care from a family who is willing to go the extra mile with her.

If you want to be rescued by LILLY and you have what it takes to be her owner and want to be the happy ending that we promised her, fill out an application right away.  LILLY is a wonderful dog, very sweet and gentle, she will need a family that understands her.  We know there is a home where LILLY can live the rest of her life in happiness.  Please apply quickly if you feel you have a home that would work for this great dog.

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.
