ALEXIS AD 08-02-17


ADOPTED ON 08-02-17 – Adoption donation includes transport and all vaccinations, except for the Lyme—therefore, the dogs will not need to get any vaccinations for the first year.  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 

Alexis is truly a perfect example of why we all continue to rescue. There are simply too many deserving and perfectly adoptable puppies that are wandering in the south and need help. These puppies roam onto to home owner’s property hoping for a meal or a kind word, in many cases they are abandoned or picked up as strays through no fault of their own.  Imagine a four month old baby, dumped in the woods to fend for herself and hearing the sounds of wild animals looking for their next meal.

Alexis is a White Labrador Retriever Mix. At this age, it is hard to know exactly what breed she is, however we do know that she is mixed with love and puppy perfection—no matter what her breed! This little girl will get a hold of your heart and will not let go. Her oversized ears for her body makes her the cutest thing you have ever seen. She is a lover, when her brothers and sisters are jumping up and down to get their turn, Alexis patiently waits her chance. As soon as she gets in your arms she buries her head in your neck and is ready to stay there. She tries to be as still as she can, maybe she thinks if she is still long enough you will forget about her. This little girl will melt your heart.

Alexis will be happy anywhere she goes where she is loved and given attention. She is very gentle with kids. She knows that she is safe and rescued; she is wonderful with other dogs and is a happy, social puppy. Her tail is always wagging and she loves being held. She greets every moment and every new situation with enthusiastic delight; it’s inspiring to be around her at any time. She’s a fun-loving: everything a well-balanced, happy, socialized and eager puppy should be. She encounters life situations with a sense of excitement and curious endeavor that it would behoove all of us to pay attention to the wonder of the world in the way this dog does so naturally.

She has been exposed to a variety of settings and feel confident that this dog and her siblings would pretty much fit in anywhere. That’s not something we can say often or with such complete confidence either, especially at this young age. Of course, no puppy thrives when left alone, not well-exercised or cared for properly given their individual needs; that should go without saying, especially in rescue! It is important to remind potential adopters of any dog — regardless of the rescue organization — that all rescued animals need continued training, consistent rules, socialization and exercise to maintain a healthy and happy disposition. In many ways dogs are a lot like children, requiring all the same things to thrive: constant love, healthy nutrition, exercise, stimulation, guidelines and structure, understanding and purpose in life. For Alexis, that purpose is clear. She wants only to please, love and play! A snuggle bunny of grave proportions, Alexis pretty much enjoys anything and everything!

When we are asked by to help these dogs, we do what we can to make a difference but we can only rescue one dog at a time and we know we can’t save them all. If you’re committed to helping a deserving dog in need, and want to help us make a difference to Alexis and be the last chapter in her rescue story, please apply today, you won’t be sorry.

This dog cannot be adopted to Massachusetts residents due to new laws regarding rescue dogs being prohibited from adoption. Please contact Patricia Cabral at: 617-626-1786 or Mike Cahill at: 617-626-1794 for questions regarding what dogs you are allowed to adopt


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.
