LUCY AD 04-14-12


ADOPTED 04-14-12 – Please allow me to introduce her highness, lady Lucy, a most attractive and regal, solid black, female, German shepherd dog ( 1-2 years old ) that carries herself in a manner reminiscent of modern day royalty. Though abandoned at a shelter she has refused most staunchly to lower herself to grieving for a human that did not appreciate her. Instead lady Lucy has stepped up and moved on, choosing to embrace her training and the good that is present in most people. This girl is a dictionary definition of the breed, intelligent, open, loving, loyal with a highly, always in control, protective instinct. Lucy would fit in almost any environment that allowed her to be a true family member, fitting in nicely with other pets, adults and children. This girl is extremely intuitive, so if you do not want her to know something you had better not even think it because she will know, reading her people like so many books.

FEMALE****1-2 YEARS ****65 – 75 POUNDS****COAL BLACK **** SPAYED

Trying to train Lucy was like trying to train a world champion figure skater to ice skate, she already was ahead of this trainer. Though she was at least gentle with my feelings, never rubbing it in that she was smarter than me! Lucy obviously knows her basic commands, is house trained and leash trained, though she is looking at me with utter shock that I would say such things in her presence. Lady Lucy will make any home a better home by her very presence, so if you are looking for a new family member that will enhance your life tremendously you really should look into applying for this girl.

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.
