When you reach your Forever Home, your place to feel whole
The Angels smile, and off they go to save another soul

How many angels does it take to rescue a dog? Robin was formerly known as “#29345” when she was picked up by a shelter volunteer in Texas, angel #one, her tail was tucked between her legs, she was confused and scared. She was held the required seven days to see if an owner would claim her. Sadly, no one came forward and Robin was set to be euthanize at the shelter. Rescue Dog Village was looking at dogs and asked to first see dogs that were scheduled to be euthanized. Her photo was sent by rescue angel #two along with a group and never knew her second saving volunteer at the shelter. The long road to a forever home is paved with angels and sweet Robin was saved by RDVG, she will never know her third angel volunteer that saw a gentle dog in her eyes and picked her. However, Robin knows NOW that she is saved and that someone had heard her cries! As many stray dogs in the south that are picked up, we don’t know anything about her history but we do see who they.

Robin then was transported up to CT on May 20th; the transport volunteers talk softly to the dogs on their trip – each dog given special attention when they are unsure or scared, they are held by the transport volunteers like they are gold—and they are in many ways-this was the first rescue angel that Robin was able to meet and she was beginning to understand that there are a village of special humans called angels and they have hearts that love and care for her – these transport angels are number four and five.

Anxiously waiting for Robin was her sixth, seventh, and eight foster rescue angels; her foster family was thrilled that they were going to be able to foster her. Foster Mom told us that she just could not wait to meet this cute dog that was so close to being PTS. Robins long transport trip was over and she met her foster family and “foster mom”. This angel had medicine to make you feel good—she called them hugs, kisses, good food and other good things her mom called “learning” helped her feel safe and helped her know what to do and what not to do.

Robin’s foster family just raves that she is a great dog from the start, happy, not timid, tailing wagging and that she is such a delightful dog with no problems, she did arrive a bit underweight. She reported that she wondered if she might have had a bad experience with hands, when her mom has her hand up, Robin does shy away and backs up looking at her, tail down but when she knows that it is you, she immediately becomes happy. She might not know what hands are or what they mean when they are in different positions. However, this is not a concern, only an observation and she is learning that hands do good things too.

Robin is a Golden mix, she is fully vaccinated, spayed, and is current on heartworm and flea preventative. Robin’s foster mom says that, “She is house-trained, needs a little more leash work, and great about going into her crate with a little nudge. She is my little shadow and smiles all the time; she is very good around the other dogs and interested in cats that she is with daily – whoever she can entice to play she is ready! She loves playing all day, has no dominance issues, no food issues, is crate trained, quiet in the crate and barks when she needs to reliever herself. She was a little hesitant at first getting in a crate but with a little nudge and soft reassurance, she goes right in. She has no reaction to fireworks, she is quiet, and does not have any fears. She is still adjusting to all the changes in her life and needs assurance from her humans to socialize so she can see that nothing bad happens to her when she discovers new things.

She has lots of personality, is extremely lovable and gets along wonderfully well with other dogs. She will burn off steam by playing with other dogs and kids. When she is in the car, she rides quietly on the backseat and is a real lady. Mom describes her as exuberant, confident, outgoing, and entertaining with lots of personality! We also know that she loves riding in a truck or car, kind of a tomboy, loves hiking and swimming – a real partner companion.

Robin loves her humans, her foster mom says she loves going with her and would be a good hiking buddy even though she has a moderate energy level. We have not found her to have any fears but if for some reason something does show up, you can be sure that she did not come into the world this way. With lots of calm guidance from her new family, the outgoing confident Robin will rise up and triumph over anything that comes her way, she is an outgoing and happy girl no matter the situation.

Robin has lost count of her rescue angles, she heard her family talking about other angles interviewing applicants for her, another takes care of the website, visitors and friends stop by the house with gifts of bones, beds, blankets and lots of that medicine that her foster mom and family give her daily. Her mom tells her that there is a whole village of special rescue angles to watch over her, that she is safe forever, that she is ready to go to her forever home and that a new dog will need her soon.

Her new family will need to know that she needs a gentle hand to help her learn about this new life she has. Robin needs a loving family who understands the needs of a young rescue dog and can help her grow to her full potential. Once she learns that, she will rocket to a secure dog and her love gates will open and flood her family for the rest of her life, she has a big heart and she is a very special dog.

Rescuers and angels, you cannot see their wings
They keep them neatly folded, as they do their caring things
The medicine to make you well, good food to make you strong
And finally to help you learn that hugs are never wrong

The perfect place then must be found, the home where you can live
Secure and safe and happy with joy to get and give
When you reach your Forever Home, your place to feel whole
The Angels smile, and off they go to save another soul

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.
