MOSLEY AD 05-05-18


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.

ADOPTED ON AD 05-05-18 – Mosley is a six month old Flat Coat Retrieve / Gordon Setter mix. This handsome guy loves the water and loves to plays ball with Baxter. The foster in the south said they play very well together. He had a Bravecto flea and tick shot and is good till June 11, 2018, HW negative and UPD on his HW meds given monthly. Mosley is scheduled to be neutered on April 16th and he will then get his third DHLPP vaccination but then he will be ready to come up. He will be coming to Connecticut soon,

This boy is all things puppy wrapped up in stunning silky hair; the Gordon Setters can range from 45 to 80 lbs. The fact that our Mosley is a six month old puppy tells you just about everything you need to know; if it is wet he rolls in it, if it is muddy he rolls in it, if it smells he rolls in it and if it runs he rolls after it.  He is alert, confident and affectionate. The Gordon setter breed is a loyal dog devoted to family members. Mosley can adapt easily to different situations but might not do not do well with long periods of isolation or being crated for long periods of time. Mosley is smart, he is great with children and other pets.

Mosley is a laugh a minute, always into something, always fascinated by the birds and butterflies, always happy and always loving. So far we have not been able to identify anything that this happy boy does not like in the world of humans and the world of dogs. Just watching him run is a show in itself, all legs moving but in different directions, his gait resembles something like a cross between sumo wrestler and a duck, here we just call Mosley’s running the Mosley two step. We have found Mosley to be very gentle for a young pup, always loving and trying to get attention and with his personality who cares.

If you’re looking for a best friend and family dog who will want to be with you all the time, lovingly and adoringly and can show you instantly how much that attention from you means to him, don’t look any further, apply for Mosley today, he won’t last long. As his pictures relay, he’s gentle, sweet, and utterly a loyal companion—he is one of a kind. We don’t see many like him, that is why we love him and so will you.

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 

ALL interested adopters MUST complete an application; agree to a vet reference check, phone interview and home visit. ALL family members MUST be in attendance for home visits – no exceptions. This helps us get to know everyone in the family so that we can help find the right dog for you 

Disclaimer: Please note that the breeds posted on our dogs’ biographies are our best guess based on years of working with rescue dogs. Adopters who need to know the exact breed or mix of breeds of a particular dog must have the dog’s DNA tested at their own expense.


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.
