THE ST. BERNARD
The shape of the white VGD Cage was inspired by the legendary brandy toting St. Bernard rescue dogs of the Swiss Alps. Some say it was pure legend that these brave dogs actually carried brandy in their barrels. We are believers that this legend is true, and that these rescue dogs were indeed, very good dogs.
The black VGD was designed to represent another type of rescue dog: the everyday Black Lab mix who's waiting to steal your heart and be adopted at the local shelter. This is the kind of rescue dog that 10% of the profits from the VGD cage will go to help.
Stay hydrated and help very good dogs in need.
THE VERY GOOD DOGS OF PDW
“Having two very good dogs myself, the VGD Cage is something
I’ve wanted to do for a long time. It took a lot of tinkering for us to settle on a design but I think the
result is fantastic and we’re especially proud to be giving ten percent of profits to animal advocacy
-PDW Co-founder Erik Olson
“We adopted Gary through the OHS Second Chance program, where dogs from other areas of Oregon are brought to the Portland area Humane Society if they aren’t adopted in their area. He had been a stray for some time so he looked like a skeleton with a giant head on him when we first took him home, but now he’s a super solid, healthy good buddy!”
“We adopted Bea when she was five years old from the Oregon Humane Society (OHS). She was our first dog so we were really nervous about taking the plunge but after we got her we couldn’t believe we waited so long to get a sweet pup.”
“Nugget was a foster-fail. Her and her mom, and siblings were rescued from an
apartment fire in the Bronx, where a man had 14 pitbulls in a one bedroom
apartment. The apartment started on fire when he wasn’t home. I have some amazing photos of the firemen carrying her and her family to safety. I started fostering Nugget when she was 5 months old... 8 years later she’s still hogging the bed.”
