ADOPTED ON 10-15-16 – It is doubtful you will ever see a cuter little boy than Bean. His big, brown eyes and beautiful coat will melt your heart. Those floppy ears will make you want to scoop him up and dote on him all day long. And that is exactly what he deserves. After Bean and his sister were deserted at a stranger’s house the neighbor’s very large dogs tried to attack them. These babies were so scared and bewildered. They were only 7-8 weeks old and had no idea what was happening to them or where they were. Fortunately, the kind woman that lived at the house snatched them up and kept them in the house until there was room at the local rescue. If not for her, who knows what would have happened?
Today this adorable Lab mix is a playful and very lovable boy. He absolutely loves everyone; people and other dogs, and especially children, which indicates he would be a great addition to a family with young kids. Bean loves attention, as most puppies do. He is learning quickly and has a wonderful disposition. Bean deserves a loving home after his very rough start. He is happy and healthy and ready to go to his forever home.
Like all rescue dogs, Bean needs a safe and comfortable world where he will continue to thrive, grow and develop the amazingly special dog underneath. The only thing missing? A forever home of his own and endless love to celebrate his special qualities! Beans foster mom tells us he is surely a sweet mixture of all things great and will not be available long! Bean and his sister Misty get along so well that their foster said it would be terrific if these two could be adopted together but it’s not a necessity.
Bean is in Winnsboro, LA; RDVG rescues dogs in the North and South, however, the dogs that are in the South are transported up every Saturday after they have completed all the recommended treatments and are directly adopted to an applicant.
DIRECT ADOPTIONS are adoptions where a dog is adopted from the rescue origin to their forever homes. Due to the many vaccinations, tests and procedures that are most essential for the dog in the beginning, the vet that originally treats the dog, will be able to continue with all phases of their needs to completion. Likewise, the original foster is a dependable and reliable resource to the adopter before and after the adoption. In the best interest of the dog, RDVG prefers direct adoptions.
We owe that to our dogs and the wonderful people who stand to be the last chapter of their rescue, and the first chapter of their new forever lives! Will you be Bean’s new family and make him a permanent part of your household?
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.

This Is Your Job, Not The Dog
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.

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
WHAT ARE DOGS?
- Dogs are animal first and when you are not around to tell them what to do, the animal behavior will respond.
- Children are spontaneous and dogs don’t know how to react to their impulsive behavior – it does not mean they don’t like children.
- Dogs don’t understand them because they live by rules – don’t get on the bed, go outside to do your business etc.what
FROM THE DOGS EYES
- If someone was running at you, whipping a sword in the air, yelling and wearing a cape – what would your response be?
- In order to be sure that everyone is safe, you cannot leave an animal to supervise or deal with children under the age of 8. Therefore, if you leave the room, adult supervision of the dog and children, 24 hours day, 7 days a week, 365 days a year must be taken seriously.
- Leave another adult in charge—let them know that you are leaving;
- Take the dog with you;
- Take the child with you;
- Put the dog in a crate or room with a closed door.
The above are very easy basic solutions that let a dog know you are in charge and that you will keep everyone safe. If something happens, you can’t undo it.

- Dogs communicateshis displeasure with growling and eventually biting
- Humans MUST be higherup in the order than the dog.
- The humans must be the ones making the decisions, not the dogs.

[av_tab title=’Accidents Tips’ icon_select=’no’ icon=’ue800′ font=’entypo-fontello’]
One Accident In the House – the dog detects the smell and his instinct to continue mark where he smells urine

- Brush with a soft brush,
- Put a towel on top to absorb the liquid,
