DIXIE AD 05-15-17


ADOPTED ON 05-15-17: PLEASE CONSIDER SAVING SWEET DIXIE It is doubtful you will ever see a cuter little girl than Dixie. Her big, brown eyes and beautiful coloring will melt your heart. Those ears will make you want to scoop her up and dote on her all day long. And that is exactly what she deserves. Dixie, is a Brindle Catahoula Cur, she is 5 1/2 months old; she is small and has a very sweet personality! She has been on heartworm prevention and is good with dogs!

Dixie is down south and is at risk—we desperately need to move her; the fosters home is full and when that happens, regretfully, we have to look at alternative solutions. It is so difficult for us, each dog is always remembered, wondering if we could have done more. However, if RDVG can commit Dixie to an Adopter or Foster, we can save her.

Dixie smiles all the time and has shown us that she would be a great addition to a family with young kids. She loves attention, as most puppies do. She is learning quickly and has a wonderful disposition. Nevertheless, we need to get Dixie to a safe loving home where she will have a chance at life. She is happy and healthy and ready to go to her forever home.

Please take a moment and consider adopting or fostering Dixie. She is a very good dogs with no behavioral problems. 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, Dixie has passed every test. She deserves a loving home after her very rough start.

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.
