BUTTONS AD 02-12-19


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 DATE 02-12-19: Buttons and her brother Zipper were dumped with the rest of their litter on a lonely country road when they were teeny tiny babies! Only the two survived. They are now crazy, fun loving little characters that are sure to make you smile with their “Flying Nun” ears!

Buttons is a black female Daschund mix and she is as cute as a button, she is micro-chipped. She loves talking to a monkey toy; you can’t help but be amused watching her take care of it like you would a baby. She enjoys being cuddled and paid attention to. She does well with other dogs, is crate trained and housetrained. She listens very well and loves to please, in addition, she is always very interested in anything I am doing in the kitchen. She gives you the most adorable face when you are rubbing her chin and appreciates the one on one attention. I think she would be a great couch potato, she loves her crate even though it is always opened. Of course she has a collection of toys in there that will always keep her entertained. She is the perfect size for hugs and kisses!

This little gal is so incredibly loving; she is a happy and amazing little dog that works to have navigated her way through traffic in the house and right into the hearts of everyone she meets. She is a little angel that crawls into your lap and perches herself comfortably there and looks at you with those big eyes full of adoration and appreciation for her salvation. Her small and sturdy little body proudly sashays around from one thing to another; she has a warmth about her and will be a devoted and loving companion.

Buttons ideal home is one that would have a small fenced in yard—not required. She would enjoys short outdoor walks and would make an ideal buddy for another dog. This is a perfect little dog, looking for a perfect home; it won’t take much, only a family with a big heart and a willingness to be loved and to love.

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 

ALL interested adopters MUST complete an application; agree to a vet reference check, phone interview and home visit. ALL family members MUST be in attendance for home visits – no exceptions. This helps us get to know everyone in the family so that we can help find the right dog for you 

Disclaimer: Please note that the breeds posted on our dogs’ biographies are our best guess based on years of working with rescue dogs. Adopters who need to know the exact breed or mix of breeds of a particular dog must have the dog’s DNA tested at their own expense.



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.
