PRIMM AD 08-10-12


ADOPTED 08-10-12 with her sibling Bambi – Life started out in a dumpster, literally for this little girl. Poor Primm and her siblings were found in a
dumpster down south. Primm had a very sad start for this little pack of pups to be introduced to a world where they are thrown out with the trash within the first few months of life. A Rescue Dog Village Guardian, Inc. souas alerted to their awful predicament and she pulled them from the depths of the refuse dusted them off and took them into her home before the trash truck arrived. These little angels could have been lost forever, but here they have a second chance at life. Now these little heart breakers are seeking a forever home, someone to show them there is love in this world, because their first owners obviously did not.

Primm, has developed her own personality in the home of the foster. Compared to her siblings he is definitely the independent little Miss. She is very smart and agile and uses that to her advantage. She is a quiet and very well behaved little princess at heart. She is very curious and is quick to investigate everything for herself. As you can imagine we are pretty lucky she is already starting to learn her own name as she can wander off and should be under close watch to stay on the right track to grow up happy and involved with your family. She is comfortable in a crate during travel and a crate in the home. She has no food issues and is good with children. Her energy activity is considered moderate for a puppy of his breed mix and will need time and attention with her new forever family during his period of adjustment. Rescues generally recommend a two week period (maybe longer for some individual personalities) of quiet home-life to bond with her new forever family, get to know your schedule, to communicate with the family members she can depend on, to learn things to do that are acceptable and gentle guidance for behaviors that need adjustment. As with any puppy, potty training is essential for a successful bond with her new forever family. Be patient while you teach this little girl the rules of your home as with any rescue dog you adopt into your family.

Primm’s perfect home would be one including children to play with and a fenced in yard to keep her on premises. Primm must be kept on leash outside until she is trained, but with her personality supervision is required to make sure she’s safe and out of danger. She’s has grown up with her litter mates. Primm is currently up to date with her shots. Under veterinary care, it was discovered she has “red mange” also known as demodectic mange which is not contagious to humans and generally not transmitted to other dogs. It is understood that all dogs have mites, just as humans do, but this type is passed on from mother to pup during the first few days of life and can be contributed by a suppressed immune response as she is very young. Typically the younger the dog is diagnosed; there is a better chance for them to be cured. Ask your veterinary care professional if you have any questions regarding prognosis or if any treatment is recommended.

The Papillon is a small, friendly, elegant toy dog with a fine boned structure. They are light and dainty, yet still lively, and is distinguished from other breeds by his beautiful, butterfly-like ears. They are known to be happy and alert little dogs that are not shy or aggressive.

They are also friendly, intelligent dog that is tougher than it looks, and loves outdoor exercise. They are known to be playful, lively, amusing, animated and charming little dog. They are also affectionate, gentle, patient, and proud, they love to cuddle and enjoys a good romp outdoors. They are steady, obedient and are not yappers. Papillion’s can be trained to perform small tricks. Good with cats when they are socialized with them. They are in general easy to train otherwise.

If you allow this dog to become pack leader to humans, it may become very possessive of its owner and resent outsiders. When a dog believes he is pack leader to humans, it is called Small Dog Syndrome, human induced behaviors, where the dog is allowed to believe he owns the house. This can cause a varying degree of behavior problems such as, but not limited to, being, nervous, high-strung, timid, separation anxiety, guarding, growling, snapping, biting, obsessive barking, dog aggression and being untrustworthy with children. These are not Papillion traits, but rather behaviors brought on by the way humans are treating the dog. Since most people who own small dogs, because of their size, unknowingly allow them to run the show, they are not generally recommended for young children. However, if you are your dog’s firm, consistent pack leader, providing rules they must follow and limits to what he is and is not allowed to do, along with daily pack walks, the Papillion can be very trustworthy with children. They will be calm if sufficiently exercised.

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.
