URSULA AD 01-14-12


ADOPTED -01-14-12 – Ursula is a special girl with an extra special rescue story.  PAWS of NE LA works to help rescue dogs from their local high kill pound.  Thanks to a great relationship between PAWS and Rescue Dog Village Guardian, Inc. of CT, many of these dogs are placed into northern homes.  One handsome young Lab was pulled from the pound in early November after finding himself out of time and on “the list”.  We named him UBU and he is looking for a forever home through RDV.  One day after rescuing UBU, the PAWS Rescue Coordinator was walking through the shelter and did a double take upon seeing a young black lab in kennel “172 Green”.  If she hadn’t rescued UBU from the shelter the day before, she would have swore it was the same dog (check out the photo that shows both dogs).  A little more investigation showed that this dog was a female and was picked up a couple of streets over (and 1 week later) from where UBU came from.  We feel sure they are littermates and after seeing what a wonderful dog young UBU is turning out to be, we couldn’t leave his sister at the pound to be put down.

URSULA is happy and loving, take a look at these two short videos to see how charming she is!!”



We named the lucky girl Ursula and she is proving to be an amazing young dog just like her brother.  She is 40# at approximately 10 months old.  Ursula is spayed, current on all vaccinations, heartworm negative and on heartworm/flea prevention.  She is excellent with other dogs and loves riding in the car.  Ursula is learning how to play with toys and is doing well with potty and crate training.  Her leash skills need some work but her foster mom reports that she is a fast learner who wants to please.  Ursula is happy and loving and can’t wait to find her forever home to start showing her appreciation.

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.
