SAM#1 AD 02-25-12


ADOPTED 02-25-12: Say hi to sweet Sam!! Despite a rough start at a “high kill” pound in Louisiana, Sam loves life and is a joy to be around. After his 7 day stray hold, Sam was one of the lucky ones as he was moved to the adoptable section for several weeks. Shelter volunteers loved the little fella and talked up his sweet nature to potential adopters. Sadly. no one took a chance of the “plain” brown puppy and his time soon ran out. Thanks to PAWS of NE LA, a southern group who works with the local pound and Rescue Dog Village Guardian, Inc., Sam was saved and is now looking for a loving home up north!

SAMMY is extremely lovable, WARNING, you might be able to resist him after viewing. Sammy gets along wonderfully well with other dogs. Take a look at these short videos to see how charming he is!!”

As of January 1st, Sam is 25# at approximately 4-5 months old and should mature into a medium-large sized dog. He has the softest fur, adorable ears and striking black markings. Sam is neutered, current on vaccinations, negative for heartworm and intestinal worms and on monthly prevention. Sam walks well on leash, is a super star with potty training and loves to play with other dogs. He is an easy going puppy who has not been destructive while in foster care, is eager to please and keep his foster mom smiling. He is a gem and definitely deserves an extra special home.

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.
