WINSTON AD ON 06-04-22


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

ADOPTED ON 06-04-22 Growing consumer prices are spilling over to everything and everyone. This is causing dog ownership to be part of a list of choices people have to make in order for their survival. Dog owners have no rescue to help them with their obligations and they are forced to turn to making a very difficult decision–they cannot afford to keep their dog.

Rescues are a resource for dog owners, they love their animals and hope that the rescues can find a loving home for their dog. Consequently, rescues deal with a huge amount of dogs to rescue and deciding who lives or is put down is a very challenging. Let me introduce you to Winston, he is a 60+lb Golden Doodle Mix that needs to be rehomed.

Winston is a super sweet very mild natured male who is about three to four years old.  His foster tells us is that he is extremely kind hearted and friendly to everyone and all animals.  He is a big boy probably around 60+ pounds but he should be full grown and finished growing since he is not a young pup. His previous owner said he is socialized and a precious companion.

Winston’s Name: Winston is one of the more popular dog names according online data and outranks a great majority of names. Dogs named Winston tend to be good-natured, industrious, affectionate, and loving. This name is also associated with intelligence, companionship and is a widely loved dog name.

  • Winston ranks #132 with users of PupNames.com.
  • Winston ranks #75 in the New York City Dog Name Database.
  • Winston ranks #149 in the Los Angeles Times ‘Top Dogs’.

In his foster home, Winston goes right to his foster and her grandchildren when they approach him. She tells us that he smiles at you and noticed that he learns fast, and that he is obedient and an extremely loving dog. He does have the tendency to snore; he gets along great with other pets, and is patient and gentle with young children.


Goldendoodle Dog Breed: The Goldendoodle is not a true dog breed but, rather, a hybrid, more popularly known as a designer dog: an intentional cross between two purebred dogs, chosen for particular characteristics and traits. With the Goldendoodle dog, breeders aimed to combine the personality and temperament of lovable golden retrievers with the low-shed traits of the distinguished poodle. The result was a medium-sized dog with a shaggy, low-shedding coat and the friendliness and eager-to-please nature of the golden retriever and the high intelligence of the poodle — making for a dog who’s both easy to train and a sweet family pet.

Because they’re not a true breed, the appearance of Goldendoodle s can vary widely depending on which parent possesses the more dominant genes. Their coat can be straight like a golden retriever’s or curly like a poodle’s, but it often lands somewhere in between, appearing wavy and shaggy. Size also tends to vary widely, depending on what type of poodle is used in breeding.

Catalan Dog Breed: Catalan dogs do well with active families, a house with a yard, and family with children. They are gentle, mild-mannered, intelligent, and quiet. They tend to keep an eye out for predators; they are smart and occasionally have a certain degree of independence. Although they are extremely devoted to their family, they are not a clingy or a needy dog.

Catalan dogs sometimes can be wary of strangers and protect family members, especially children, if they feel they are threatened. They display extraordinary tenderness and consideration around the very young. When at ease, this is one of the most placid and mild-mannered of all dogs, and will silently blend into the background until called for play or protection.

Rescue dogs are usually found in awful medical and emotional condition. Their stories are heartbreaking and stay with us and their adopted owners. We all work hard to make that happy ending for them. Owner turn in dogs have been loved and well cared for. How do rescues choose? Rescues are also dealing with rising prices and their choices of who to rescue is limited by the money they have. The situation is heartbreaking for the rescue and the home owner.

Winston is neutered and ready to go. His new family will need to be supportive and understanding and help him transaction to his new life. He is a fantastic choice for families will make a good family dog for a loving home. All that is missing is a family to call his own.

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.
