NELSON AD 10-24-17


ADOPTED ON 10-24-17 – If you are looking for a pet and want to help a rescue dog, this is the rescue dog that has that cliff hanging tale that make movies. Nelson and his brother Rubin went to a home in LA because they were STARVING TO DEATH they were both horribly skinny and wormy; babies in the wild, alone, frightened, living in rain and cold—tear-jerking tragic for those with hearts that saw them.  The brothers had been dumped and were trying to survive on their own; luckily they found their way to home of a very kind and compassionate angel that feed them and took care of them until she could find someone to help. She called their now foster mom to take them, even though she was already overflowing with dogs, however, one look at their pictures and with no hesitation, there was no way Patricia,  could say no.

Foster families in the south make many huge personal sacrifices, pay for most of the care on their own. Thanks to the kind angel and Patricia, lots of food and one on one loving care, the brothers are fat, happy pups doing what normal pups do—run and play all day. Patricia thinks it would be awesome if the brothers could be adopted together, however, Duncan would do well as a family pet. She describes the personality of both dogs as being the most grateful pups that she has ever seen; so happy to have someone caring for them.

Nelson is a very sweet grateful, respectful and appreciative pup of every crumb of food and attention. At first, he was unsure but after he realized that Patricia was only trying to help him, he shredded his tragic experience, did not lose a speck of faith in humans and showed his excitement when greets new people….he is very joyful and loving. He is outgoing, friendly, and energetic. He is a wonderful little guy who loves to cuddle, but also knows how to play and have a good time.

This adorable guy is looking for a loving family that will dote on him and treat him as he deserves—as 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. We owe it to our dogs that the wonderful people who stand to be the last chapter of their rescue and the first chapter of their new forever lives deserve him.

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

Cur dogs are very responsive to kindness and are family-oriented but wary of strangers. Curs have an outstanding disposition and love kids. They are protective of the property and family, but not overly protective or aggressive. Basically, they have the sense to know when there’s trouble and when there’s not. People who have these dogs say owning a Cur is an enjoyable endeavor for the whole family. They will amaze you daily and will try to please you every way they physically can. As one owner said, he “believed they would cut wood for him if they could.”

 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.
