PRECIOUS AD 06-25-12


ADOPTED DOWN SOUTH 06-25-12 – Precious will be happy anywhere she goes where she is loved and given attention.   She is very gentle with kids.  Her foster mom babysits and all of the kids love her because she is very gentle and does not jump up on the little ones. On Feb 12th a very sweet momma dog was dumped at the at a very high kill pound in Louisiana with her 5, 1 week old pups. The shelter has no room for nursing moms and the little family was to be euthanized. Thanks to the PAWS of NE LA rescue program they were saved and didn’t even have to spend 1 night at the pound. This little family has been thriving in foster care ever since are now looking for loving northern homes through our partnership with Rescue Dog Village Guardian, Inc..  .

Precious is a 1 year old, 15# Rat Terrier mix who has been an excellent mother to her puppies.  Since she is so young, we feel like it was likely her first litter.  She is loving but also playful with her pups and is an all around great girl!  Precious’ puppies were weaned at 6 weeks of age (but are still getting lots of socialization from mom and the other dogs in their foster home) and she was spayed on March 13th.  She is negative for heartworm and on prevention and is fully vaccinated.  Precious is housetrained and also does well in a crate.  She is wonderful with other dogs and is a happy, social little dog.  She is a bit unsure of the camera (and her only photos thus far were taken at the shelter and at the vet) but we can assure you she is MUCH more adorable in person!  Her tail is always wagging and she loves being held.  This momma dog is ready for some one on one time with a special family and she certainly deserves it.  🙂 .

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.
