MAGIC AD 06-03-17


ADOPTED ON 06-03-17 – Magic and her sisters represent another heartbreaking example of the cruel ignorance that exists in some people. The only bright side to so many of these stories is that there are caring people that are willing to help and many of these beautiful dogs continue on to live wonderful lives with wonderful families.

Four adorable black puppies abandoned on the side of a remote back road to fend for themselves. Too many of our stories start this way.  Starving, covered in mange, and bloated little bellies due to worms, these girls attempted to eat road kill to ease their hunger pains. Luckily, a passerby was kind enough to call someone she knew to be a rescue worker and inform her of the situation. Patiently waiting until the puppies were trusting enough to be removed from their ditch and taken back to safety, they began their long journey to an ending of happiness.

Today, Magic is a gorgeous Flat coat Retriever/ Lab mix who watches every move everyone makes. She has pretty white markings on her beautiful black coat. She is an observer, and will study you before she decides you are a friend. Not to worry though, if you pass Magic’s test she will be your loyal friend for life. She picks up routines, rules and commands quickly. This tells us just how smart Magic is. She loves to play with her sisters and lounge in the sun. Magic is so very sweet and loving and would make a wonderful addition to a family where she can run and play all day and snuggle up to her loved ones at night. Will you give Magic the loving home she so deserves?

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.

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.
