SPIRIT AD 07-15-17


ADOPTED ON 07-15-17 – 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 year.

 The south is full of angels that help so many dogs get to a safe place. Spirit’s rescue story began that way, she was found by Angel#1 that could not keep this puppy she found; she had two grown dogs, three children and a warm heart. She left the puppy in a box on the doorstep of a rescuer that could not turn this sweet baby away either, even if she had 20 dogs at her home – she is our partner and Spirit is in good hands. Angel #1 called our partner and told her that she left the puppy and ask her if she would be able to take her and find a good home. Spirit was officially rescued.

Spirit is an amazing loving dog. She gives the warmest hugs when she is held and wraps her head around her foster mom’s neck-her foster mom speaks with warmth when she talks about her. She plays and wrestles with all the dogs in the foster home, still too young to be left with small children, and watches the cats with a lot of curiosity but doesn’t attempt to get close, she respects them. She has no food issues, does fine in a crate, and is too young to be on a leash. She checks out all loud noises but she is just cautious dog… not skittish, and needs to have bones to chew on daily.

After a flea bath and worms that must have filled this baby’s belly, Spirit is a healthy, happy, normal puppy. She does have a very small umbilical hernia on the belly but it poses no problem at all and can be easily be fixed if necessary at the time of her spaying when she is old enough.

True to the German Shepherd breed, she is watchful of all of her surroundings, very playful, loveable, and an adorable fuzzy cuddle bug, loves to hug her humans. She will be ready to come north after her third DHLPP shot, she has lots of puppy playful energy and with require her new family to be a part of their time and attention. It is hard to tell at this age about much more about her, however, her paws are HUGE and we think she will be a large adult dog.

Spirit watches over her foster home with the kindness of an angel, few dogs naturally possess the ability to fit in anywhere. Spirit not only fits in, she excels in all situations, other dogs, kids and humans. If you have an urge to have an instant best friend that is always glad to see you and easily maintained, you really should give this wonderful girl a look. We are looking for a family that she can really be a member of with lots of activities that focus around her or include her so that she be able to then develop to be an awesome social companion family dog with a big heart.

If you have what it takes to be her owner where she can live the rest of her life and want to be the happy ending that we promised her, fill out an application right away.

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.
