COOKIE AD 01-09-18


ADOPTED ON 01-09-18 – 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.

Cookie was rescued from a kill shelter and on the list to be PTS. Those that knew her knew at the shelter said she is a loving pet, that she is a gentle, social dog, and bonds very well with children, enjoys playing and activities with them. She is intelligent, responsive, learns easily and is not destructive. She is not aggressive gets along with other animals, is confident and independent–Cookie is a faithful and a pure companion.

It is difficult to sum up a dog’s personality when a dog is first picked up by animal control and brought to the dog pound. At the pound the primary focus is on two issues: physical health and temperament. A thorough exam of the dog is done to analyze any medical issues and then preventive medicine is done next. Through that process, Cookie has passed every test and is in a foster home up north now.

To say that Cookie is somewhat shy to strangers is an unfamiliar assessment and is misunderstood; she is an outgoing dog, friendly to everyone, but is devoted to her “pack.” Her shyness is misunderstood, she is careful and may be somewhat shy to strangers in an unfamiliar surrounding or circumstances. However, Cookie is a very unique, what is thought to be shyness is extremely loyal to the family and rarely leaves their side.

Cookie appreciates any affection she gets and is very eager to please—she learns very quickly and willingly wants to do what you are asking her to do. When you meet her, you see right away that she is smart, we believe that she gets that from her heritage. Her foster home has a variety of dogs for her to play and even though she weighs about 30 lbs, she still has some growing to do and a long life ahead of her.

If you are looking for a dog that you would like to take with you and be with all day, Cookie will likely be a great match for you. We are looking for someone who has a lot of time and attention to give to Cookie because she deserves nothing less. This adorable gal is looking for a loving family that will dote on her and treat her as she deserves–a lifetime cherished member. Our rescue works from our hearts for our dogs; it is the least we can do for them because they deserve nothing less. We owe it to our dogs that the wonderful people who stand to be the last chapter of their rescue and the first chapter of their new forever lives deserve him. Don’t let her slip by—there is a lifetime of wonderful memories waiting for you!

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.
