BEAUX AD 07-30-19


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 year. 

ADOPTED ON 07-30-19 Beaux (aka Bo) is a two year old Black Lab Mix. True to the Lab breed, he is very sweet and a laid back boy. He is just becoming accustomed to the New England weather so he tends to stay out for only short periods of time. He was also slow to warm up to the other dogs in the house but is now best buds with his Golden foster brother. Beaux is house-trained, crate trained and listens well. He is slowly understanding that we do not counter surf. J))

Beaux is playful and will grab a newspaper or potholder to get your attention so you will pet him. Most dogs have the mind of a six year old, as with all changes, regardless human or canine in a new environment, we all want to know what the rules are. It is the dog’s recovery that helps us know if he will live by the rules and Bo is responding and understands that he there are things he can and cannot do.

Here is a link to some house rules suggestions:  House Rules

Beaux loves attention, responds to being loved and his Marrow Bones. He enjoys running around town with you doing errands or snuggling at home to relax.  He has that “Hi there” personality, enjoys playing, taking naps, and give kisses. This charming handsome guy wants to light up your life.

Bo deserves the best, he has flourished more and more each day in his CT foster home. He prances like a proud boy with the other foster family dogs and enjoys to be around people and follow you everywhere. He is just such an adorable boy that when you are with him-he is just contagiously irresistible and we are so happy he was saved. His foster mom tells us that he would be a great addition to any family. Of course, as with children and supervision, we recommend adult supervision with young children until Beaux adjusts to the family.

Beaux is eager and ready to go to his forever home. Don’t miss out on this spectacular companion. That ideal home should also have a lot of time to devote to Bo and understand that perfection is possible, but that it doesn’t happen overnight. Most rescue dog require time, patience, establishing rules, and understanding. Bo is just as precious as can be and eager, ready and waiting to be part of a family! Already he’s learning and responding well to this new vibe of life and the loving affection that he’s been experiencing in his CT foster home. Bo is a supremely friendly and special dog!

Beaux is ready to slide right into your heart, do you have the requirements of a forever home of his own and endless love to celebrate her special qualities? Now all he needs is many years where he can continue to be a happy and loyal member of a family. Will you open your heart to him and give him the love he so deserves? In return, his companionship and friendship will be with you every day, rain or shine.

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.
