DAPHANIE AD 01-11-15


ADOPTED ON 01-11-15 – FROM THE FOSTER: – Daphne is being fostered with me here in WNY and has been here for 4 weeks. She is the most lovable little girl around. She basically just wants to be held all the time. She loves to sleep in my lap or sometimes she gets in the chair behind me and goes to sleep. She craves human touch. She has become fast friends with my 2 yr. old Aussie mix and they just love each other. Daphne wasn’t sure how to play when I first got her but my Callie was persistent in teaching her what to do with a ball and a squeaky toy and a Pepsi bottle. They play constantly now. Daphne knows sit, down, crate, wait and leave it. She is very food motivated so she is easy to train. She has a ton of energy but my Callie helps to wear her out. Daphne loves to ride in the car with her head hanging out the window which is a huge step for her as she wouldn’t even get into my car when I first picked her up. She walks good on a leash, she loves going to doggie daycare and the dog park where she runs like she has never been able to run before. The girls at daycare quickly fell in love with her and they said she just loves everybody, both canine and human. She is house trained but doesn’t know how to let you know she needs to go out so we just keep her on a schedule and it is working out fine. She doesn’t seem to mind cats as the people downstairs have cats and she shows no interest in them when they are in the windows. She does well with kids but I have not had her around kids under 7. She is fine with both men and women. She will make somebody a very lovable and faithful family member.

Daphne is my new foster girl here in WNY. She is just the sweetest little girl and so very beautiful. She loves to be loved. She would kiss your face all day if you let her. She is house trained, crate trained, leash trained, good on a tie out and is great in the car. She loves to go to the dog park and run like crazy with whoever will run with her. She was fast friends with my 2 yr. old Aussie and they both love to be outside. They love to play so my house is like romper room when I am home. Although they do play hard, they both settle down when asked. Daphne goes to daycare once a week and has become a fast favorite of the girls there. They say she is an awesome little girl who gets along with everybody. She loves my landlords 10 yr. old and also my neighbors’ pre-teen daughters and husband. She seems to love everybody and anybody. Daphne is a smart little girl and is food motivated so will be easy to train. She knows ‘sit’ and ‘crate’ and is getting pretty good at ‘down’ and ‘leave it’ and ‘wait’. I am amazed at how quickly she is learning things. She is still a puppy so lots of chew toys are a necessity to keep the house in one piece. She knows where the toy basket is and only takes things from there. When she is in the car she stays in the back seat and when her head is not hanging out the window, it is resting on one of my shoulders. She is a good girl and will make the right person/family very happy one day. I am so glad someone seen the potential in her and pulled her from an uncertain future.

Daphanie is a 35lb spayed female Catahoula cur.  She is approximately 9 months old. She was picked up down south inside the city limits of Winnsboro, Louisiana by animal control. A group of volunteers from Patrick’s Pal’s (our partners down south) noticed the beauty and potential in this sweet girl; they decided to pull her from city pens this past July. At first she was so scared, the animal control officer could not get her to come out of her kennel. However, with a little love and patience the volunteers were able to convince her; she has grown more and more confident each day under the loving care of her southern foster! She was a bit underweight when she came into rescue, but is now at an ideal weight. She is in excellent health, up to date on vaccinations, and heartworm negative.

Daphanie loves other dogs of all ages and sizes! She has a moderate to high activity level and is very social. Her play style is fast and hard. She currently lives with 6 other dogs in her foster home. Her foster mom says the other dogs embrace her zest for life, and enjoy playing with her. Although extremely active she will easily settle down once playtime is over and will curl up with the other dogs for a nap. She also enjoys the company of human affection as well. She did excellent with her foster mother’s granddaughters, ages 6 and up, when they came for the weekend. This precious girl even sits on command and catches her treats in the air. She absolutely loves to be outside and is currently in a home environment where she can do this as she pleases. She sleeps loose inside the house at night and she is fully housetrained. Her behavior inside a crate is unknown. Her behavior with cats at this time is also unknown. She has not had an experience riding in the car at this point in time. Daphanie does well on leash. She has showed no signs of food aggression and has no apparent fears.

Daphanie’s ideal home would be an active family with other dogs, to match her high activity level.  She would also do well in a home with children. Although not a necessity, a fenced in yard would be nice, so she could continue embracing her love of the outdoors.  She would love to go on hikes or long walks where she could take in all the sights and sounds while getting the exercise she needs. Catahoula’s are an extremely active and intelligent breed; it would be much to her benefit and her new owners if they could continue with her training and teaching her commands.  It is a known fact that training strengthens the bond between and owner and dog and also helps the dog feel confident and secure.

  • Children need to be taught how to how to approach and touch dogs, and always supervise any interactions between dogs and young children.
  • No dog should ever be left unsupervised with a child because often-young children don’t understand that a cute little dog, or any dog, might not want “love and kisses.”
  • Never let young children pick up a puppy or small dog. Instead, make them sit on the floor with the dog in their lap. Pay attention to the dog’s body language, and put him safely in his crate if he appears to be unhappy or uncomfortable with the child’s attention.
  • Always teach children how to approach and touch dogs, and always supervise any interactions between dogs.
  • Teach your child never to approach any dog while he’s eating or sleeping or to try to take the dog’s food away. No dog should ever be left unsupervised with a child.
  • Be prepared dogs will protect themselves
  • Most important, it is your responsibility to make sure that your children and the dog are supervised at all times and safe. You cannot leave it up to the dog, the dog is an animal and will behave like an animal. They rely on us to guide and protect them, 24 hours a day, 365 days a year.

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.
