Peppermint Patty is a fun loving terrier x shepherd mix that is 30lbs and 1 year old.  She came into the Ouachita Parish Animal Shelter in West Monroe, LA as a stray.  No owner came to claim her and her sweet nature earned her a shot in the adoptable section after her 7 day stray hold.  Volunteers took the cute pup to an offsite adoption at Petco.  There we learned that Patty had a painful ear mite infection in her ears.  She would approach potential adopters but when someone reached down to pat her on the head she would whimper and fall to the ground.  Despite being in terrible pain, Patty continued trying to show her love to anyone who walked in Petco and was not aggressive even when children grabbed her ouchy ears.  Talk about a stoic and loving pup!!  She was immediately taken to the vet for treatment for her ears.

Patty was a star patient and went back to the shelter still hoping for a home.  No one showed any interest in the little black and tan dog and her time soon ran out at the busy pound.  Thanks to a great relationship between PAWS of NE LA and Rescue Dog Village Guardian, Inc., Patty was saved and is now looking for a forever home up north.

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

Peppermint Patty is good with kids and other dogs and is doing well with potty training and crate training.  She walks well on leash but does pull a bit and her foster is working on that.  She has a medium energy level and enjoys playing with other dogs and toys and going for walks.

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.
