PIPPA BLUE AD 06-02-13


ADOPTED 06-02-13 -PIPPA came to her foster home up north petrified and skeptical of the entire world. Since she has been there she has become affectionate and lively! PIPPA loves to play more than anything else-especially with dogs. She loves to run and have you chase her, or chase her tennis ball. She loves her crate.  You can see happiness in her eyes and it’s heartwarming and rewarding, considering her rough start in life.  The vet was very complimentary re: her disposition, and gave her an “excellent” bill of health. Pippa does not have a mean or bitter bone in her body and has become quickly trustful with the people in our home.

She is beginning to trust all humans that she meets. Although she is a little timid, she is VERY sociable. With the progress I have seen in the last three weeks, eventually, she will not be so timid and it will fade away completely. You couldn’t ask for a sweeter or prettier girl. Pippa will need a good size crate, a yard she can run in, preferably another dog to play with and a lot of exercise due to her Australian Shepard genes. She’s just perfect and makes an impression where ever she goes!

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.
