SISSY AD 02-16-13


ADOPTIED 02-15-13 – Looking for a medium sized dog who thinks she’s a lap dog? Sissy is your gal! She’s simply adorable and everyone who she comes in contact with falls in love with her sweet face and her awesome personality. Sissy is calm, loving and gentle. She will allow toys to be taken from mouth without any aggression, loves stuffed animals and bones and is learning to fetch. Sissy is between 1 and 2 years old and is about 35 pounds. She’s a terrier/hound mix and has gorgeous brown brindle fur. She comes microchipped and with all her shots. If you have cats, that’s fine. Sissy isn’t bothered by them. She may even bring them one of her toys.

Sissy is the kind of dog who wants to be around people and will sit and chew her bone contently for long periods of time. Children love Sissy and she loves them, however she has not been assessed around very young children or toddlers. A 30 minute walk/run a day suits Sissy fine. She’s not a super high energy dog, but keeps up just fine if you want to take her for longer walks. She loves to run and explore more than fetch and retrieve, which is why she needs to be kept on a leash or in a fenced in yard. She’s working on her skills with other dogs and looks forward to being taken out to socialize more and more. Sissy isn’t a dog who will be happy kept in a crate for long hours. She wants to be around people. So, if you’re looking for the perfect sized dog with a wonderful personality, apply for Sissy!

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.
