ADOPTED ON 12-17-16 – All too often we hear the stories of abandoned puppies, rescued by wonderful people, and adopted to loving homes. They were very young and will probably never know anything but love and happiness. But sometimes we hear of the horrific tragedies that occur to beautiful dogs and we are left speechless, wondering just what would cause someone to be so cruel and how these dogs will ever come through it OK if given a second chance.

Rose one of those dogs. A sweet Lab mix with beautiful brown and white markings. Rose should have been brought in to the family as a cherished member where she could run and play like puppies need and love to. Instead, she was brought to a family as a puppy, tied to a tree, where, according to a neighbor, she remained alone all day. As if this was not cruel enough, a few months later her owners decided to crop her tail. They used no pain killers, and after several weeks when the stump got infected, when asked to take Rose to a vet, they refused.

We can’t even imagine someone doing that to a dog; the pain and suffering this little girl went through, tied to a tree and enduring this abuse was deplorable and disturbing. Those of us who understand that dogs will love us no matter what, they will protect us and even lay down their life to save us are shocked. Luckily, the neighbor who witnessed what Rose went through since the day she arrived could stand it no more. She asked them to surrender Rose to her so she could get her immediate medical attention. They agreed, and Rose saw a vet soon after.

Today, all because of another guardian angel who could no longer stand by and watch this cruelty continue, Rose is a blossoming, she is 8 months old and is healing nicely. Her stump had to be removed completely to avoid infection into her spine, but that does not take away from Rose good looks. The most amazing part of this story, however, is how Rose came through this with the sweetest disposition. She is shy, but when she trusts that you will not hurt her she warms right up.  What a truly wonderful dog Rose must be to be able to endure that treatment and still be willing to trust humans.  This is a testament to what kind of family member she would be, and any family would be blessed to have her. Rose deserves nothing less than a perfect home where she will be treated like a princess.  Are you lucky enough to welcome this special girl into your 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.

The following is basic helpful information and does not reflect the personality of dog mixes.

[av_textblock size=’18’ font_color=” color=”]
 ABOUT THE BREED
Labs are healthy dogs and generally will live long lives of 10 to 14 years and are one of the most popular breeds in the USA because they are loyal, loving, affectionate and patient, making great family dogs.  They are highly intelligent, good-natured, very willing and eager to please; they are among the top choices for service dog work. They love to play, especially in water, never wanting to pass up the opportunity for a good swim.

These lively dogs have an excellent, reliable, temperament and are friendly, superb with children and equable with other dogs. They crave human leadership and need to feel as though they are part of the family and are easily trained. This breed of dog is wonderful with people of all ages, and interacts well with children.

PET COMPATIBILITY
If a Lab has had plenty of exposure to other dogs, cats, and small animals, and has been trained, he’ll be friendly with other pets, too. They get along well with other dogs and can easily adapt to live with other small pets.

CHILDREN
Not only loves kids, he enjoys the commotion they bring with them. He’ll happily attend a child’s birthday party, and even willingly wear a party hat. Like all dogs, however, he needs to be trained how to act around kids — and kids need to be taught how to act around the dog. As with every breed, you should always teach children how to approach and touch dogs, and always supervise any interactions between dogs and young children to prevent any biting or ear or tail pulling on the part of either party. No dog, no matter how friendly, should ever be left unsupervised with a child.

TEMPERAMENT
The Lab is a wonderful family dog that gets along with all members both big and small, rarely are they aggressive. They are very loving and affectionate and are eagerly playful. Labs have a very positive temperament and get along with most strangers.

PERSONALITY
Lab loves to run, swim, and play with children and adults alike. They are extremely loyal to their owners, hard-working and are generally good-natured, originally a type of gun dog. Labs are extremely versatile and have been put to use in the following roles: hunting, guide dog for the blind, police k9, search and rescue, drug sniffing, retrieving, as well as tricks and competitive obedience.

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
