FOXY AD 06-26-18


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. 

ADOPTED ON 06-26-18 – Precious Foxy was rescued by a wonderful rescue foster in Texas that is out every day, picking up stray dogs and bringing them to shelters or other homeowners like you and I that take the dogs in on a regular basis—she kept Foxy. Just looking at this dog makes one so incredibly happy that laughter is the consequence of being in her presence; this amazingly special four-legged German Shepherd Mix—that there is just no denying that her fabulous smile is just infectious and strikingly cute.

Foxy is now in a foster home in CT, she tells us that Foxy is sweet and sounds like a wolf pup when she barks. She loves people and paws at them to get attention. She is a very cute pup and is doing very well with her bathroom responsibilities. Like most German Shepherds, she is not a big crate fan at the moment, however, most of them do much better out of the crate and with her family at night with only the bedroom door closed. She is feed her in the crate so I know in time she will adjust. She sleeps very well at night on her soft blanket in the kitchen. She loves to weave in and out of your legs like a cat. She also loves the giggle ball and she marches when you pay attention to her and paws at you.

Foxy deserves the best, she has flourished more and more each day in daily care of her loving foster home. She prances like a proud with the other foster family dogs and enjoys being around people that she follows everywhere. She is just contagiously irresistible and we are so happy she was saved, all her devoted fans say she is a love muffin.

That ideal family will need to devote time to Foxy and understand that perfection is possible but that it doesn’t happen overnight. Any new rescue dog requires time, patience and understanding. A dog that has the added baggage of rescue and an unfortunate past requires even more of all the above, but as we’ve found with all the dogs in our care once they’re re-homed, they also tend to offer more generous servings of commitment, loyalty, companionship and devotion for they sense deep gratitude at being loved and feel obligated to show it in every interaction. That’s true for Foxy who is just as precious as can be and eager, ready and waiting to be part of your family! Already she’s learning and responding well to this new vibe of life and love that she’s been introduced to. Foxy is a special dog!

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.
