ADOPTION PENDING – Yet another sweet and beautiful puppy running loose and scared on the street because someone could not take the time for a simple procedure of spaying/neutering. Gale is 12 weeks old, an adorable Cur mix, who was rescued along with his brothers. Luckily they did not encounter any tragedy that would leave them hurt or scarred, except for being discarded and unwanted. They are young puppies, however, so they will not remember, and they will grow to be wonderful, loving companions.

AND HOW WELL THEY ARE TOGETHER

Curs are very responsive to kindness and are family-oriented but wary of strangers. They have an outstanding disposition and love kids. They are protective of the property and family, but not overly protective or aggressive. Basically, they have the sense to know when there’s trouble and when there’s not. People who have these dogs say owning a Cur is an enjoyable endeavor for the whole family. They will amaze you daily and will try to please you every way they physically can. As one owner said, he “believed they would cut wood for him if they could.”

Gale currently spends his time playing with his siblings all day long. He is learning to trust humans. He is cautious when approached, but warming up nicely as the days go by. Like any puppy, he likes to frolic, chew and explore, and will need lots of puppy training, but her disposition is sweet and he seems very eager to learn. Now all he needs is a forever home; one that will keep her safe and love her unconditionally. Will you open your heart to Gale?

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. He 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?

   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.

[av_textblock size=’18’ font_color=” color=”]


ABOUT THE BREED
Cur dogs are devoted to family, but may be wary of strangers. They are a medium size dog originating in southeastern Kentucky by the Stephen Family, developed from a strain of Mountain Cur, this breed is nicknamed “Darkie” for its dark, rich coat color.

CHILDREN & PETS
Cur dogs do well around other dogs, they are easy to train and get along with children. It’s a happy and playful dog that loves to frolic and have a good time with kids. All dogs need plenty of opportunities for exercise each and every day.

BEHAVIOR AND PERSONALITY
Cur is easy to train, are highly trainable and courageous. As with all dogs, humans should establish dominance in the relationship right away to avoid behavioral issues. This dog is smart and loves positive reinforcement with a kind and gentle demeanor.

PERSONALITY
Due to their high intelligence, we humans live with dogs, we become their pack. The entire pack cooperates under a single leader. Lines are clearly defined and rules are set. Humans MUST be higher up in the order than the dog. The humans must be the ones making the decisions, not the dogs. That way your relationship with your dog can be a complete success.

TEMPERAMENT
Many people have said that the Cur dogs will not get along with cats and other small animals which others have found that if you teach them from a young age they will respect all animals inside the home. At times she can be very precious and at other times very bold and brave. They loves games and seems to do well in a suburban setting with lots of exercise. They love daily walks and love to play fetch. They are shy around strangers, not aggressive but very submissive.

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
