Paige is very laid back and the kind of dog that you can dress up in clothes and stroll around in a baby carriage. She loves life and would love to be with children. She learns quickly and when she is asked to go into her crate she bounces right in without any protest. She is housetrained with a twist, because she is a true lady and very modest; she does like anyone, four legged or two with her when she goes out to do her business.
As we began to know Paige, we realized that she has something special that many dogs don’t have. She is a 13-month-old attractive lab with a beautiful, soft rich black, shiny coat. She has the charming characteristics that we love in a Lab’s personality, which makes the breed so popular; she is loyal, loving and is happiest when she is with people; she just desperately wants to please and enjoys human affection.
All alone in the world, Paige wandered up to an Elementary School on October 17, 2013 and was taken to the City holding pens in Winnsboro, LA by a volunteer that could not walk away from her. Due to the community involvement with stray dogs, fortunately for Page, the City holds dogs past the five days required by City ordinance. Not so long ago, they euthanized all dogs after the five-day holding period. She was held in a tiny pen for almost four months because Winnsboro Dog Pound was unable to find her owner. Rescue Dog Village noticed her and asked if they could help. On intake, she had good manners and was in excellent condition.
Currently Paige is in a northern foster home with a variety of dogs and has been exposed to dogs large and small; she consistently shows us that she loves other dogs and she genuinely enjoys playing with them. In her southern foster home, she loved the water and swimming in their pond! Because of her respect for a human pack leader, she is very easy to train.
Paige loves her food and is not fussy about what she eats. She will sleep in her crate at night and sleep through the night till 6 am; however, she can have free run of the house, which is only given to the trustworthiness canine visitors. On special occasions and because she is go good, she has periodically slept with her foster mom at night. During the day, she does not mind going into the crate when mom and dad are at work.
Paige will do well with a young family who has other dogs and does outdoor activities. She has a moderate to high activity level because she is still young, so she likes to play. She has all the qualities that make her an exceptional dog. All she needs now is a great home, so hurry, grab a leash and don’t wait too long to fill out an application for her.

About Our Rescue
These dogs deserve all of our attention, and in Rescue Dog Village, we are committed to our adopters and our dogs equally. We offer full disclosure and hope to make the best matches possible. Please know our adoption fees never cover our expenses. We rely on the generosity of our adopters and supporters to help us help the dogs.
Our rescue is ONLY in the business of offering FULL DISCLOSURE to adopters, and expects and hopes to engage your questions and concerns fully. We owe it to the dogs we rescue and all the wonderful families/adopters who might consider welcoming our charges into their hearts and home. Our dogs are waiting for that ideal forever home where they will be cherished as deserving family members. It's sad these second chances are even necessary for these dogs, but we are committed to them and will devote the time and energy to their rehoming, and not just MOVE them to save more dogs. We diligently and responsibly seek good matches as we don't want to re-home the dog again. These animals have already endured more than they should have, and through no fault of their own. It behooves us to be honest and forthright, and we appreciate the same in return from applicants. It's that winning combination of reciprocal trust and respect that allows for successful placements to be made. Happy adopters translate to happy dogs, and that's our goal!
Our rescue volunteers will be more than honored to be in touch with you directly and promptly, after receiving your application and conducting a mandatory a veterinarian check. If you have never owned a dog before, please submit your application regardless, and we will be in touch with you as soon as possible. TAKE NOTE YOU SHOULD CHECK YOUR SPAM AS SOME RESPONSES FROM US WIND UP THERE WE'VE DISCOVERED. Also, take care to contact your veterinarian to let them know a member of rescue will be inquiring about your pet history!
Thank you for respecting that we all donate our time to saving these animals, and understand we value your philanthropic and compassionate desire to help be part of the rescue team. That said, you'll understand why we are committed to the well-being of our charges and consider this veterinarian check mandatory. If you are a first-time dog owner, we will work with you every step of the way! ADVOCACY AND EDUCATION ARE AS MUCH A PART OF RESPONSIBLE RESCUE AS ADOPTION! And it takes a RESCUE VILLAGE to help the most dogs possible in a thorough manner to ensure success on all fronts, and then some! It is an awful feeling to fail a dog, and we can't continue rescue if we don't do everything we can to ensure good matches for the dogs and tender families who might adopt them. THANK YOU FOR UNDERSTANDING.
Although we are an extremely small rescue group, we understand and respect your family's eagerness to be in touch and learn as much as you can about the dogs you are considering adopting. Our very experienced and devoted trainer will be happy to share all aspects of OUR RESCUE DOGS to determine compatibility once you've submitted your application, and another of our volunteers will explain the whole process of our rescue and answer any questions you might have as well
