SASHA AD 01-26-20


Our vet has recommended that all dogs under 6 months not to spay or neuter the pups because they are too young and their bodies are not fully developed.  Adoption donation includes transport and all vaccinations, except for the Lyme—therefore, the dogs will not need to get any vaccinations for the first

ADOPTED ON 01-26-20 Sasha is a six month old female, 30 pound, spayed, Black Shepherd mix. We believe she will always be small. Sasha and her sister were surrendered to Jasper Texas Shelter when they were babies, they were only four months old. The owner said that they were both running into the street and that they were turning them in because they “wanted a better place for them”. However, they surrendered the two babies to a kill shelter. Then in order to save them from being euthanized, they were rescued by RDVG’s partner and taken to YaYa’s Bow Wow boarding house for rescue dogs only.

Sasha is now in foster care in Terryville CT; her foster mom tells us that she is awfully sweet and very submissive—be sure to see her video. She appreciates her new life, is crate trained and housetrained. Sasha enjoys playing with other dogs and her foster believes that she will do well with children of any age. However, many children, especially very young ones, do not realize that pets are living animals and not toys. 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.

Sasha loves to romp outside with her buddies and does try to play the boss with little dogs. She would be a great family pet who will hike, enjoys attention and will push her way to get to you if you are giving attention to another dog. She is a social dog, would be a great couch potato and would do well in an active home as a part of a family daily life.

Sasha has a wise quiet inner peaceful soul that is looking for a family where her heart will fill with happiness She would benefit from having a fenced yard, but not required, that she can run around in, and she would do well if you have another dog buddy for her to romp with but she would be just as happy with a family.  Sasha has been imagining and waiting for someone who will love her unconditionally. Her basic prerequisite is an adopter who is as devoted and loyal as she will be to you.

ABOUT THE BREED: German Shepherds are friendly but have calm confidence about them, they may seem kind of reserved. Most GS owners say that the characteristics of German Shepherds are that incredibly loyal, and friendly. When in need, however, a German Shepherd is instantly ready to protect, play a game or perform a task—in some cases as a guard dog, police dog, herder or seeing eye dog. With a strong work ethic and an eager intelligence, GS breeds are good with other dogs and children especially if they have been exposure to them.

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.
