MISSY AD 10-07-17


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.

ADOPTED ON 10-07-17 – The first thing that will cross your mind when you meet Missy is what a sweet, gentle, dainty lady you’ve just encountered. This Yellow Lab/Catahoula Cur mix has a loving nature and is very committed to the people she loves. What a wonderful thing considering she was part of an unwanted litter, and the situation could have gone a lot differently for her. Thanks to some wonderful rescue angels who recognized her loving disposition, Missy is well on her way to ending her journey in her forever home.

Missy is most content resting at her person’s feet, being talked to and having her beautiful coat stroked. She certainly has her puppy moments, but Missy is quite laid back for such a young dog; she has a maturity far beyond her few short months of life. Missy likes to observe and assess. Some might see this as fear, but intelligence is more of a fitting characteristic as far as Missy is concerned. She wants to check things out before she opens up and trusts. Her new family will need to allow her a day or two to do just that. After that, they’ll find Missy waiting patiently in a chair for a good game of chase or catch. She will begin to show her playfulness quickly, and use her big beautiful eyes to melt your heart and give her anything she wants. You know when she is happy and ready to please because her tail jiggle and wags relentlessly.

Missy will thrive in an active home. A doggy brother or sister would be wonderful, but not necessary. Missy just loves to play her “snatch and run” games and she can do that with anyone able and willing! In return for a loving home Missy will provide unconditional love and devotion to the lucky family that welcomes her in. This special girl deserves the very best.

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.
