MISCHA AD 11-23-11


ADOPTED 11-23-11 – Mischa is described by those who see her as a very happy beautiful girl. She had her full kill heartworm treatment and did very well; heartworm treatments are very painful. Her overall health is very good and once she completes the treatment, she will be a very healthy normal dog.

Mischa is a 4 year old female shepherd and weights about 34-40 lbs.  Her rescue story starts out in a kill shelter and was pulled by a wonderful rescue group by the name of PAWS. They got her to the vet and made arrangements for a foster. Mischa has a loving foster family that has loved and comforted her throughout her road to recovery. Other then medical, she has no behavior problems and is a real lady.

Mischa is extremely lovable and gets along wonderfully well with other dogs. Take a look at a short videos to see how charming she is!!”


Her energy level is moderate, she is very playful and true to her shepherd heritage, she is very intelligent.  She loves giving and receiving attention, which means that this is something she probably did not have much of before being picked up by the shelter.

She is an excellent dog for many families because she is a moderate size dog. She would do well in a large area to play; however, her demeanor and size allows for more modest settings. She behaves very well with other dogs and was into a home with 6 dogs. She adjusted well and fit right in.

She is great with children. Her foster mom has a 7 and 2 year old and both children adore Mischa.  She gets along very well with the children and loves their attention. We have seen NO ill temper by Mischa toward them. We don’t know how she is with cats but she does not have any food issues, is housetrained, and rides well in a car, good in a crate, has no known fears and good on a leash. She loves her new life with her foster family.

Her perfect home would be a home with children and dogs and a fenced in yard would be great for her. She would love to go with the family to outdoor activities such as baseball games and family gatherings. She is a very social dog and has lots of love and devotion to give to a family. However, if you are looking for a dog that you want to take with you to work and can make sure she has her daily exercise, she would fit right in. If this rescuer could adopt a dog, Mischa would one a dog I would choose. Her stunning good looks, her intelligence and ability to live in many home situations, makes her one of those dogs that you remember for a lifetime.

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.
