CHUCK AD 12-27-20


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 12-27-20 Chuck was rescued in Texas where there is an army of rescue citizen soldiers with pure hearts that ache at seeing the remarkable dogs that need help. They rescue the dogs and in many cases, sparing no expense and doing without, He was one of those luck dogs.

Chuck is just a happy go lucky boy. He comes into a room like “Good morning world, I am here”. He prances around lightly on his feet. I believe if Mr. Rogers was still on TV that this would be his dog. He greets everyone and loves to be loved. He would do well in any home. He would love playing dress up with a child. He is housetrained and does well in a crate and on a leash. I cannot say enough about this boy, he is perfect.

Chuck is absolutely sweeter than sugar and intent on playing with the other dogs until he tires himself out. Then he lounges lazily and does what goods dogs do best: sleep hard. It’s the reward after playing hard, after all. After a solid dozing and revitalization period, he is then ready for whatever adventure you put before his. Always ready to follow another dog or person.

Chuck is willing and eager to please and learn. He would be a great companion for a family looking for a young dog that will be an awesome adult dog. If you are looking for a dog that you would like to take with you and be with all day, he will likely be a great match for you. He loves people and other dogs. His foster mom said that he is a “Character” which is the best description of his personality; we are happy to have him in our care and are looking for someone who has a lot of time and attention to give to him because he deserves nothing less.

Chuck 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 his 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 her and give him the love he so deserves? 

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.
