TIPPY#1 AD 05-12-12


ADOPTED – 05-12-12: Meet Miss Tippy!  She appears to be a Lab x Terrier mix and is fully grown at 36lbs.  She was found running along a deserted road in Louisiana on a hot summer day.  As of September 1st, Tippy is almost 1 year old.  Tippy was rescued and has since been fully vaccinated, spayed, and is current on heartworm and flea preventative.

Tippy’s foster mom says that, “She is fully housetrained, leash trained, and great about going into her crate. She is my little shadow at the barn, and is very good around the horses and livestock. LOVES to play with the other dogs, cats, kids – whoever she can entice to play!

TIPPY has lots of personality, she is extremely lovable and gets along wonderfully well with other dogs. She will burn off steam by playing with other dogs and kids.  When she is in the car, she rides quietly on the backseat, a real lady and she is excellent on the leash. Mom describes her as exuberant, confident, outgoing, and entertaining with lots of personality!

Here are some videos of Tippy playing with her best friend:

She also likes going hiking even though she has a moderate energy level. She most likely will need only about an hour of exercise per day.  Her foster mom goes on 1+ mile hikes in the mornings and Tippy is a great buddy on the trails.  This southern pup is ready for a new life up north and would be a great addition to most any family!

We have not found her to have any fears but if for some reason something does show up, you can be sure that she did not come into the world this way. With lots of calm guidance from her new family, the outgoing confident Tippy will rise up and triumph over any thing that comes her way. Tippy is an outgoing and happy girl no matter the situation.

Her mom describes her perfect home as a loving, active home that can take her along for lots of fun outings.  Her foster mom has horses and cows and Tippy is a great “barn dog”.  She is good with kids, all other animals and never meets a stranger!  Tipp is not a dog that would do well being banished to a boring back yard….she loves being part of the action and is a great companion!  Are you her companion? Tippy was found running down a dirt road, was she runny away from something or running to your loving 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.
