ADOPTED ON 07-17-17 – When A Bond Is Too Strong To Break – In the world of canine adoption, the term “bonded pair” indicates a duo of doggies that for whatever reason are strongly attached and need be adopted into the same home together. Separating a bonded pair is liable to lead to anxiety issues in one dog or both — not good. Like humans, dogs too find comfort in having a doggie companion to rely on. Sometimes the bond is so great that when separated, even for a short time, the dogs each react anxiously and will even bark or whine until its other half returns.

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.  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 

Margo and her sibling Tike are a Bonded Pair and we want them to be adopted as a pair. Their struggle of near death twice, is a true rescue story that reaches the hearts of those that rescue our dogs and give them their forever ending. The best happy ending would be that they could be adopted together.

HERE IS WHAT WE HAVE FOUND REGARDING
THE IMPORTANCE OF A BONDED PAIR

BONDED PAIR BACKGROUND
In animal rescue programs and adoption centers, “bonded pairs” are two dogs or cats that have a very close relationship. When a pair of dogs this strongly connected is allowed to live together, the chances of them thriving and achieving happiness in a “forever home” setting is exceptionally higher. That means a lower likelihood of “acting out,” whether through destructive chewing, potty accidents or even excessive whimpering and whining. After all, in being adopted as a duo, the little ones already have a piece of comforting familiarity in an otherwise totally brand new and quite daunting atmosphere.

SEPARATION AND GRIEF
Dogs are no strangers to grief. If two dogs are very closely bonded and all of a sudden are split up into different homes, a grieving process is not only normal but expected. Dogs may individually mourn the absence of another by losing interest in prior beloved pastimes and activities, sleeping more, withdrawing from people, refusing to eat and staring off into space in a dazed manner. None of these things are even remotely the signs of a happy or healthy dog, of course.

Margo and her sibling Tike are a Bonded Pair and we want them to be adopted as a pair. Their struggle of near death twice, is a true rescue story that reaches the hearts of those that rescue our dogs and give them their forever ending. The best happy ending would be that they could be adopted together.

Watch the video below of of Tike and you will see why Margo is so bonded to him

Puppies are very happy, affectionate and loves lots of attention. What is it that dogs have that human’s lack? Margo & Tike’s previous owner discarded them and left them to fend for themselves. Dogs give comfort to people when they are upset. It is a fact dog lovers have known for a very long time. A study was done that revealed that dogs truly do respond to human tears and will naturally try to reassure a distressed person. It also turns out dogs will try and comfort anyone who cries, not just their owner. Although there is no way to know for sure if dogs can understand why someone is sad and needs comforting, the study does point out that dogs respond to human emotions.

Margo & Tike are in excellent health and are fabulous little dogs with a big personalities. They are adorable yellow labs and ultimate cuddlier.  They have a healthy normal puppy personality and are very playful and have a moderate activity level. They are not high energy at least not at this point; they are still a baby and getting used to a new foster home. Therefore, they are still adjusting and learning how to be a being a dog. Playing tug with toys is one of their favorite things to do. They are great with kids and like other dogs and are constantly trying to find someone to snuggle with.

Margo & Tike love their crate and like most baby pups, they are currently learning about potty training. We don’t know how they would be with cats however, cats will probably be larger than they are right now so with the proper supervision, we feel that she could do very well with cats. We are not sure about how they are in the car but because they are so young her new family can gently help them if they are unsure – most dogs are thought to be skittish or fearful of things like cars and the behavior is labeled and misunderstood, they are only unsure of new things. Overall, Margo & Tike is are all-around normal, happy pup in need of a forever family willing to give tons of hugs and kisses!

Thanks to her hard-working foster family, they are healthy and growing fast. Our southern rescuers are the front line of angels that save our dogs, they give their time, money and most important, their hearts to the dogs they save. They work long hours to take care of all our dogs and give with their whole heart and truly loves each and every one of the dogs. They ask for nothing and RDVG is truly honored to work with such special people.

Our southern rescuers can have as many as 20 dogs on their property, if not more dogs at one time, and the challenges that go along with the care of the dog can also sometimes mean sacrifices with their personal lives. So it is not only the foster that do the work, the family members also participate on a daily basis. They never ask for money or even a thank you and it is important that they know that we appreciate their sacrifices and the updates you send help them after the adoption help them see that one of the dogs they worked with is doing well–is like opening an unexpected gift for them. It gives them great joy to see the dogs happy and healthy in loving homes like yours.

Margo & Tike deserve a loving family who will show her what a truly happy ending is. She has come a long way indeed, and should be loved as a true member of the family. This adorable girl is looking for a loving family that will dote on her and treat her as she deserves–a lifetime cherished member. Our rescue works from our hearts for our dogs; it is the least we can do for them because they deserve nothing less.

Margo & Tike 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 her special qualities? Now all she needs is many years where she can continue to be a happy and loyal member of a family. Will you open your heart to her and give her the love she so deserves? In return, her companionship and friendship will be with you every day, rain or shine.

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
