ADOPTED ON 01-16-16 – This amazing little girl and her story will not only break your heart but it will stir your perception that there is a greater bond of love and devotion. The family that is lucky enough to welcome Foxy into their home will have a true understanding of the meaning of love, all because of this one little pup. Foxy is a 3 month old, absolutely gorgeous Golden Retriever / German shepherd mix with the most angelic face you have ever seen. She is becoming a very sweet, playful, and eager to please little puppy. The amazing part of her story is that she is an example of how a dog, given a horrifying start in life, can learn to trust another human again and bounce back with courage and spunk despite the fear and loneliness that overwhelmed her.

Abused in her very short life, then abandoned on the side of the road with her brother, Foxy watched as he was hit by a car and killed. Witnesses say they witnessed her as she attempted to drag her brother out of the street and to the side to keep him safe from other cars. Terrified and alone, she stayed with her brother watching over his body until a phone call was made and some kind hearted rescuers came to get her. It took hours but the rescue angels did not give up on her, they were finally able to get her in the car. Understandably, she was afraid of humans as all she ever knew was cruelty.FOXY_04

Foxy’s journey continued at a loving southern foster home which has a full house of 20 rescue dogs. Her foster mom understood her pain because she has seen it so many times and knew how to begin the process of her recovery. In just a few weeks, Foxy’s relentless spirit is pushing her forward—she is becoming a happy “normal” girl. She is learning to walk on a leash, ride in a car, and most importantly, approach and trust humans. She spends her days playing cheerfully with her foster brothers and sisters. Her shyness is quickly disappearing and she is learning new things every day. Foster mom says she is one of the smartest dogs she has ever met. She mastered the use of the doggie door in one minute flat and uses it to go outside and she has never had an accident in the house.

Foxy’s story is an incredible one, but sadly, not uncommon. So many beautiful dogs are discarded by heartless people that don’t understand that a dog is a champion companion and protector. Fortunately, there are so many good hearted people willing to help. She is a special girl; has a big heart, an even bigger spirit and will make a family very happy when we find her a forever home.

Could it be that the dog you adopt saves you from a fire, loneliness, or fills your home with laughter, companionship? Whatever the reason, know that if you are the fantastic family that gets Foxy, she has already demonstrated how bottomless her devotion and loyalty are to those that she loves–she so deserves the right home and she will undoubtedly return that with years of dedication.

Foxy would love a family that would love to play, hug and run with her. She has an amazing dog inside of her and just needs the right family and K9 companion. Our girl would be best suited to a family that will affectionately cherish her and NEVER leave her—she has demonstrated that if you are down or in trouble you know she will not leave you. If you are looking for a new family member that is totally loving, dedicated and that will fit in anywhere—she is your girl.

Foxy is a beautiful and special little girl, most important, in addition to her forever human family, it is essential for her to have a home where she could have another dog or two as a buddy and be able to run in a large back yard. Just as humans need companions and others in our life, so does Foxy. She enjoys other dogs and her rescue response to her brother when he was killed was to take him out of harm’s way. This tells us that what is best for her is to have another playful K9 soul mate and finally have a life companion that doesn’t go away.

Do you want to be rescued by Foxy and do you have what it takes to be her owner and want to be the happy ending that we promised her?  Foxy is a wonderful dog, very sweet and gentle, we are committed to finding her a loving home where she can live the rest of her life feeling happy and safe. If you have lots of love and time to dedicate to her, she will repay you with a lifetime of devotion!

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.


ABOUT THE BREED


Golden Retrievers
Golden Retriever is a family dog, it’s no surprise that the Golden Retriever is one of the top ten most popular dogs in the U.S. It’s all good with the Golden: he’s highly intelligent, sociable, beautiful, and loyal. The Golden is slow to mature and retains the silly, playful personality of a puppy until three to four years of age, which can be both delightful. Many keep their puppyish traits into old age.

CHILDREN
Being gentle with children, sturdy enough to handle the heavy-handed pets and hugs they can dish out, and having a blasé attitude toward running, screaming children are all traits that make a kid-friendly dog. You may be surprised by who’s on that list: Fierce-looking Boxers are considered good with children, as are American Staffordshire Terriers (aka pit bulls). Small, delicate, and potentially snappy dogs such as Chihuahuas aren’t so family-friendly.

All dogs are individuals. Our ratings are generalizations, and they’re not a guarantee of how any breed or individual dog will behave. Dogs from any breed can be good with children based on their past experiences, training on how to get along with kids, and personality. No matter what the breed or breed type, all dogs have strong jaws, sharp pointy teeth, and may bite in stressful circumstances. Young children and dogs of any breed should always be supervised by an adult and never left alone together, period.

TEMPERAMENT
Golden Retrievers are family dogs; they need to live indoors with their human “pack,” and shouldn’t spend hours alone in the backyard. A sweet, calm nature is the hallmark of the breed. The Golden was bred to work with people, and is eager to please his owner. Though hard-wired with a good disposition, like all dogs the Golden must be well-raised and well-trained to make the most of his heritage.

Like every dog, the Golden needs exposure to many different people, sights, sounds, and experiences. Very loyal and sociable, the Golden Retriever loves interacting with humans and having fun. They make great pets for families with children.

PERSONALITY
Golden Retrievers enjoy playing games, including fetch and playing with toys. They love to interact with humans in this way and can be great fun to be around. The breed is also highly intelligent, quick to learn and loves plenty of exercise and attention.

PET COMPATIBILITY
They are great with other animals too, even with those which are smaller than them, unlike other hunting breeds. They are calm and well-mannered and can also make good watchdogs.

IMPORTANT POINTS ABOUT PACK LEADERS
It is a natural instinct for a dog to have an order in its pack, therefore, the only way your relationship with your dog can be a complete success you must be the pack leader:

  • When we humans live with dogs,we become their pack
  • The entire pack cooperates under asingle leader
  • Lines are clearly defined andrules are set
  • Dogs communicateshis displeasure with growling and eventually biting
  • Humans MUST be higherup in the order than the dog.
  • The humans must be the onesmaking the decisions, not the dogs.

HOUSETRAINING
Schedule Feeding Time – Find your dog’s schedule so that you can work with that

  • Feed your dog on a regular schedule time, always within a half hour of the time

Schedule Water – Help your dog bee successful

  • Keep a schedule for water, however, you should design a schedule that fits you
  • Remove the water dish after the first feeding in the morning
  • After the night feeding, leave water dish for two hours, then take it up
  • Before your last walk for the night, put the water dish down about an hour before
  • Then walk your dog 45 minutes after he has had water. There will might be days where that might be an exception for water.

 Schedule Walking Time – Find your dog’s schedule, then gently move it to your schedule.

  • Start by taking the dog out every two hours for two days, if he goes every two hours,
  • Then take him out every three hours, for two days,
  • Until you reach the time frame you need – every six hours—eight hours etc

One accident in the house, there is a urine smell that the dog detects and his instinct to continue mark where he smells urine. This is how wild dogs let other dogs know that this territory is taken and for dogs not in the pack to go elsewhere. If your dog has an accident in the house, spray the area with 3 parts vinegar and 1 part water, brush with a soft brush, put a towel on top to absorb the liquid, then take it outside where you want him to go, take it out of the bag and put it on the ground, praise your dog when he goes outside.

  • Always teach children how to approach and touch dogs
  • Always supervise any interactions between dogs and young children to prevent any biting or ear or tail pulling on the part of either party.
  • Teach your child never to approach any dog while he’s eating or sleeping or to try to take the dog’s food away. No dog, no matter how friendly, should ever be left unsupervised with a child.
  • Children need to be taught how to approach and touch dogs, and always supervise any interactions between dogs and young children.
  • No dog should ever be left unsupervised with a child because often-young children don’t understand that a cute little dog, or any dog, might not want “love and kisses.”
  • Never let young children pick up a puppy or small dog. Instead, make them sit on the floor with the dog in their lap. Pay attention to the dog’s body language, and put him safely in his crate if he appears to be unhappy or uncomfortable with the child’s attention.
  • Always teach children how to approach and touch dogs, and always supervise any interactions between dogs.
  • Teach your child never to approach any dog while he’s eating or sleeping or to try to take the dog’s food away. No dog should ever be left unsupervised with a child.
  • Be prepared dogs will protect themselves
  • Most important, it is your responsibility to make sure that your children and the dog are supervised at all times and safe. You cannot leave it up to the dog, the dog is an animal and will behave like an animal. They rely on us to guide and protect them, 24 hours a day, 365 days a year.
  • THIS IS YOUR JOB, NOT THE DOG
