MIMI AD 08-31-11


ADOPTED 08-31-11 – NEW PICS OF ZOE/MIMI at her new home. Mimi was rescued from a high kill shelter on 7/13/11 in Louisiana and she was sprayed on the day she was scheduled to be put to sleep. Her foster mom describes her as a happy sweet puppy that like most puppies, likes to play with big dogs, toys and she loves to spend time outside. She loves children and was friendly to friends that came to visit her mom over the weekend. She is currently very curious about my cats but does not seem aggressive. If you want a dog that you want to love, Mimi is the dog for you; her foster mom says she loves to be loved.


She is a good little girl and wants to please, at her young age; she is already walking well on a leash and is doing well for her age. She will, of course, need chew toys and need to have lots of room to run and play. Dogs that don’t get enough exercise will find other ways to entertain themselves so her new family must be ready to makes sure she gets enough play time every day.

Mimi is with 6 other dogs at her foster home and mom says that she fits in well with the pack. We believe that Mimi is a Catahoula cur mix which also known as the Catahoula leopard cur dog breeds on account of its distinct markings on its coat and is also known to be an excellent housedog. Like the Catahoula cur dog, Mimi is very a friendly and sweet dog to have as a companion.  In fact most people prefer having Catahoula cur puppies as this breed of dog does not need any specific training pertaining to taking care of children but is in fact known for its caring attitude and its ability to take good care of children.

MIMI meets Lincoln and they have not stopped playing since she charmed the handsome boy with her sweet smile.

Mimi is great with the children in her foster home. She is learning to fetch goys, loves to play tug of war and eats like crazy. Mom is working on her house training and says that she has done very well when taken out on a regular schedule. She rides well in the care and is crate trained at night and when no one is at home. She is in the crate during the day for 2-3 hours and at night from 11:00 pm to 6:00 am. If a puppy is kept on a schedule and taken out the same time of day, they have a better chance of being successful at housetraining—her mom is doing a good job with her and setting her up to succeed. She does very well in the car and does not seem to have any fears right now but it is still very early to be sure.

The Catahoula cur puppy is known to have a short, single and dense coat that may come in various colors or shades of grey, black and white.  The legs of the Catahoula dog breed are known to be strong boned and solid. This breed of dogs is also known to have a deep chest cavity which allows for good lung and heart capacity. As far as the personality of the Catahoula cur dog is concerned, one should know that the catahoula cur dog breed is highly intelligent. This breed of dogs is not aggressive by nature but is assertive. In fact on account of its strong instinct to care for their family members the Catahoula cur dog breed is known to be an excellent care take for children. Although a Catahoula cur puppy will make an excellent pet for the family and for children especially one should also be aware that this breed of dogs requires a dominant owner as they are also known to be very territorial and independent by nature.

MIMI IS DOING WELL in her foster home. She loves to play, bury her bone and she loves Mr. Lincoln. She would be wonderful with children because she has so much love to give and she is so full of personality and life.

Mimi’s perfect home is with children because she will be a great puppy for a family. She is not very hyper but she is playful and can be handled easily. She is eager to please and mom thinks she will be a medium size dog not large at all, perfect size. Most important, her new family must remember that she is a puppy and will require patience and understanding, just like any other puppy

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.
