RIGGS AD 01-28-14


ADOPTED 01-28-14 – Riggs and his 3 brothers future was at risk until a southern angel made room in her home full horses, cows and dogs. They needed to go into foster home or be euthanized due to the shortage of space in Southern LA and the abundance of puppies brought into the world by people who do not want to keep them or find them forever homes. Riggs and his brothers are looking for a place to call home.

Labradors are less whiney and insecure than other breeds, and not prone to territoriality or possessiveness. They are
evenly tempered and great with kids, and will run like crazy when you give them room. If you need a slobbery tennis ball retrieved, this is the breed for you.

Riggs loves to run and wrestle with his brothers.  He also loves to be cuddled and will wrap his paws around your hand when you hold her.  He will give you plenty of puppy kisses and is sociable, good with other dogs and children. He is an active dog and will need a lot of playtime especially at this age. Training and socialization is always important in the first year to ensure a dog who will be a good asset to your home.

Out of the 7000 dogs that get put to sleep, only 1000 make it to loving homes. Please fill out an application and love one of these sweet wonderful healthy happy puppies.

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.
