PAIGE AD 03-26-14


ADOPTED 03-26-14 – Paige is very laid back and the kind of dog that you can dress up in clothes and stroll around in a baby carriage. She loves life and would love to be with children. She learns quickly and when she is asked to go into her crate she bounces right in without any protest. She is housetrained with a twist, because she is a true lady and very modest; she does like anyone, four legged or two with her when she goes out to do her business.

As we began to know Paige, we realized that she has something special that many dogs don’t have. She is a 13-month-old attractive lab with a beautiful, soft rich black, shiny coat. She has the charming characteristics that we love in a Lab’s personality, which makes the breed so popular; she is loyal, loving and is happiest when she is with people; she just desperately wants to please and enjoys human affection.

All alone in the world, Paige wandered up to an Elementary School on October 17, 2013 and was taken to the City holding pens in Winnsboro, LA by a volunteer that could not walk away from her. Due to the community involvement with stray dogs, fortunately for Page, the City holds dogs past the five days required by City ordinance. Not so long ago, they euthanized all dogs after the five-day holding period. She was held in a tiny pen for almost four months because Winnsboro Dog Pound was unable to find her owner. Rescue Dog Village Guardian, Inc. noticed her and asked if they could help. On intake, she had good manners and was in excellent condition.

Currently Paige is in a northern foster home with a variety of dogs and has been exposed to dogs large and small; she consistently shows us that she loves other dogs and she genuinely enjoys playing with them. In her southern foster home, she loved the water and swimming in their pond! Because of her respect for a human pack leader, she is very easy to train.

Paige loves her food and is not fussy about what she eats. She will sleep in her crate at night and sleep through the night till 6 am; however, she can have free run of the house, which is only given to the trustworthiness canine visitors. On special occasions and because she is go good, she has periodically slept with her foster mom at night. During the day, she does not mind going into the crate when mom and dad are at work.

Paige will do well with a young family who has other dogs and does outdoor activities. She has a moderate to high activity level because she is still young, so she likes to play. She has all the qualities that make her an exceptional dog. All she needs now is a great home, so hurry, grab a leash and don’t wait too long to fill out an application for her.

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.
