THEIA AD 03-03-12


ADOPTED 03-03-12 – Theia says HI!!  This pretty pup was the result of an unplanned and unwanted litter and was surrendered to Ouachita Parish Animal Shelter in West Monroe, LA by her owner in early January.  Black Lab mixes are the most common and most euthanized dogs at this local pound.  Despite being young and beautiful, Theia had no chance as owner surrendered dogs do not have to be held for any length of time.

Thanks to a great relationship with PAWS of NE LA and Rescue Dog Village Guardian, Inc. of CT, Theia was pulled from the shelter and is now looking for a loving home up north.  She is thriving in foster care and is enjoying the company of other dogs, cats and kids.  As of January 6th, Theia is 8 months old and 47#.  Her previous owner told the shelter she was a Black Labrador x Catahoula Leopard Dog mix…both are sporting breeds that are smart, loyal and loving.  Theia is spayed, current on all vaccinations, heartworm negative and on heartworm/flea prevention.  She is doing great with potty and crate training and truly wants to please.  Don’t miss out on this special girl!

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.
