AUTUMN AD 12-18-11


ADOPTED 12-18-11 – Autumn is a happy girl and her foster mom describes her as a “sweetie” Mom thinks she must have been a pet, because she is very comfortable in the crate, will go in by herself for alone time and did not whimper or cry at all at night. She said her tail “may be small but she is a rump shaker…. LOL her whole body moves when she wag’s it.

Her history is not known, lots of dogs history start with the day they were taking into rescue. She does have a high activity level but she is just a baby and as she grows, that will calm down. She loves to play and enjoys belly rubs. Is happy with life and have no dislikes, she plays well with children and other dogs, both large and small breeds. Her behavior with other dogs is wonderful; she is being fostered in a home with 2 dogs. A large breed and a small breed and gets along well with both.

She will get her stitches out on the 7th or 8th and we will get her booster vaccinations on Nov. 14th. She could come north and head up on the next PETS transport which is Nov 10-12th. She is good in the car and on the leash; great in a crate, and making progress on her house training. Luckily, she has no fears

Here perfect home would be a home with a fenced yard where she can get some outside play unless her new family is runners and can meet her energy level doing other things. She would be fine with or without dogs but she likes the company of other dogs. However, someone who is home a lot or works part-time would be great too. She would like to have some children or active adults to play with.

We don’t know how her life began or what led her to a kill shelter. She was rescued the day she was scheduled to be PTS. However, we do know how her story will end and how the rest of her life will be. Some special family will want to love her every day of her life, can’t get better than that.

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.
