HUCK AD 05-20-17


ADOPTED ON 05-20-17 – Huck is a handsome Yellow Lab who, along with his siblings, had the misfortune of being unwanted and discarded. Never has a puppy been luckier, however, than to be abandoned on an angel’s doorstep days before he is born, and is now on the road to a very happy ending.

Huck’s mom was very pregnant when she was dumped on a stranger’s porch. This wonderful elderly lady would have it no other way than to care for Huck’s mom and her new litter. There are not very many people with as big a heart as hers. She did the best she could on a meager fixed income to feed and care for 6 dogs, but it became too much. She sought help from the local sheriff’s office who found her a shelter to bring the pups to. The shelter spayed momma dog and returned her to the woman (the two had bonded and were now inseparable) with the promise that all “her babies” would be found good homes. The litter of pups were in such good health from the wonderful care they had received that the shelter wondered if this loving lady had skipped meals to feed all the dogs.  Such giving hearts are rare and this family was blessed to be placed on her porch that day.

Today, Huck is a happy, healthy, good-natured puppy who loves people and other dogs. He is active, and loves to walk and run. He would make a wonderful jogging companion and enjoys just about everything, including swimming, but he settles down nicely when playtime is over. As with all puppies, Huck needs love to teach him all the things he needs to know, but so far he is a sweetheart and would make a great addition to a home with children or active adults.

His foster mom describes Huck as a sociable happy-go-lucky little guy, like most puppies, he explores everything around him because he’s curious about the world. His playful happy energy will make a wonderful playmate for a family with kids and he would be a perfect companion to another dog. He likes to be with his humans, get plenty of belly rubs, and have a nice warm bed and cuddle up with you wherever you are. Would you open your heart to Huck and give him a forever home?

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.
