NOLA #4 AD 11-04-20


Our vet has recommended that all dogs under 6 months not to spay or neuter the pups because they are too young and their bodies are not fully developed.  Adoption donation includes transport and all vaccinations, except for the Lyme—therefore, the dogs will not need to get any vaccinations for the first. Our puppies are kept in a sterile environment until they have all three of their vaccinations  ***ADOPTION DONATION 450.00 EACH***

ADOPTED ON 11-04-20 This sweet girl with the stunning blue eyes is Nola, named after New Orleans, LA. Her DOB is 06-30-17, 65 pound Anatolian Shepherd/Great Pyrenees mix, with a beautiful thick golden coat and is ready to begin her journey for her forever home!

Nola has not had a difficult life like so many of our pups have. She has just never had a permanent home and family to call her own.  She was just an extra puppy that someone was having trouble finding a home for. Unwanted, a wonderful rescue group took her in. She spent some time there, and was a wonderful playmate to her Husky friend. They had intended on keeping Nola, but circumstances changed.  They felt she deserved so much more, and if Nola could find a forever home, then they’d be able to rescue more pups in need.

Nola is very adoptable. She is a tiny bit reserved and shy at first, but she warms up quickly to her humans. Nola has not been around cats up close, but she has barked at them through the fence. A home without cats would be best for her, just to be safe, unless she can really be watched until she adjusts to the surroundings where cats are included. She is a friendly and playful girl and would love hiking and traveling with her new family. Nola is great with adults, all dogs of any size, and children of all ages. As usual, however, we always like to caution that no child should ever be left unsupervised with any dog. Nola is spayed, HW negative, and healthy.

The Anatolian/Pyrenees mix of breeds is a wonderful combination for a new family member. The Anatolian is known for its loyalty and independence, while the Pyrenees is best known for being patient and calm.  Anatolians are smart, devoted, responsive, and adaptable. They will protect their flock—livestock, children, smaller dogs, even the family cat—with intensity. Anatolian owners must be strong leaders, willing and a

ble to handle a dog as dominating and demanding as he is calm and loving. The Great Pyrenees is a large, thickly coated, and immensely powerful working dog bred to deter sheep-stealing wolves and other predators on snowy mountaintops. Pyrs today are mellow companions and vigilant guardians of home and family. Frequently described as “majestic,” Great Pyrenees are big, steadfast guardians usually exhibiting a Zen-like calm, but they can quickly spring into action and move with grace and speed to meet a threat. The lush weatherproof coat is all white, or white with markings of beautiful shades of gray, tan, reddish-brown, or badger.

Nola has all the qualities that would make her a wonderful addition to any type of family. She’s a delightful girl who can’t wait to have her own warm bed, a food bowl with her name on it, maybe a spot by a fireplace with her very own people, in a home that she knows she will belong in forever!

 We go the extra mile for every dog and do whatever it takes to make sure that that dog finds happiness, we give 100% and more. It is what we enjoy doing and helps us wake up in the morning; we know that the dog is thankful we rescued them and thankful for their life. Finally, they will be forever remembered by our families that adopted them because they really rescued them.

Here is a link to the list of approved rescues

ALL interested adopters MUST complete an application; agree to a vet reference check, phone interview and home visit. ALL family members MUST be in attendance for home visits – no exceptions. This helps us get to know everyone in the family so that we can help find the right dog for you 

Disclaimer: Please note that the breeds posted on our dogs’ biographies are our best guess based on years of working with rescue dogs. Adopters who need to know the exact breed or mix of breeds of a particular dog must have the dog’s DNA tested at their own expense.


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.
