ADOPTED ON 06-11-16 – Rogue is a handsome 8 week old English Cream / Cur mix who, along with his sister, was cruelly discarded to fend for himself. They are sadly part of a very large group: puppies born homeless and unwanted, because of the irresponsibility of humans who refuse to spay and neuter. If it were not for wonderful rescue angels who work tirelessly to care for these babies and find them homes, Rogue and his sister would become just another statistic. Their happy ending is right around the corner.
Rogue is currently being cared for in a wonderful foster home where he spends his days playing, napping, then more playing. He is a warm tender affectionate dog, gets along with all the dogs at the foster home but especially enjoys hanging out with his sister. Having only each other right from the beginning, they have become best friends. Foster mom says Rogue is playful, adventurous, very sweet and gets along with everyone.
Rogue is an extraordinarily beautiful dog inside and out. He is magnificent in every way that matters. He is getting more and more comfortable and his foster mom has helped him feel safe in her home—the more they trust, the more willing they are to try new things! His sad past is history, he’s just a “good ole boy, who is happy to be playing and acting like a puppy.
This adorable guy is looking for a loving family that will dote on him and treat him as he 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. 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.
Rogue 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.
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

ABOUT THE BREED
Outgoing and social, the Golden Retriever makes a loyal family pet. Their sweet dispositions make them patient and gentle with children and they are generally tolerant of other pets. It is important to remember that they are excitable as pups. These dogs are people lovers who prefer to have as much human contact as possible. Being forced from their family members for long periods can result in a very unhappy Golden Retriever that could suffer from separation anxiety. Golden Retrievers do not make the best of guard dogs. They will bark at strangers, but seem to be more interested in meeting and making friends with them than they are defending their family against them. They are affectionate, loving and loyal, and try hard to please their people.
English Cream Golden Retrievers enjoy activity such as walking and playing. As they grow up their level of activity will increase. For the first 18 months ensure exercise isn’t exhaustive or forced. This will allow their bodies to fully develop before you take them on longer walks or jogging with you.
As you make your English Cream Golden Retriever a part of your life, your home, and your family, you will be creating an environment and a lifestyle which will instill personality traits to encourage for years to come.
English Cream Golden Retrievers love to run, romp, and play! Swimming is a great non-weight bearing exercise for English Golden Retrievers. The “true” qualities of an English Cream Golden Retriever is they are loving, loyal, intelligent, and affectionate.
There are variables to the following general observations about English Cream Golden Retriever personalities. They vary depending on the environment during the formative days, weeks, and years of a puppy’s life.
They are perhaps the innate characteristics which when nurtured will develop and endure. Understanding your puppy’s natural personality will help you to create and maintain an atmosphere which will nurture and support positive self-confidence, social development, and the natural personalities which compel our adoration.
Golden Retrievers are Pack and People oriented dogs. They enjoy being in the company of members of the family and other pets in the home. Include your puppy in the family’s daily routine. He/she is a part of the family and will enjoy playing while you are at play, resting while you are at rest, spending time alongside family, other pets, and being involved encourages team work and motivates a growing bond.
Golden Retrievers have a desire to please. This is why early positive praise for behavior you are pleased with will build your puppy’s self-confidence and encourage more pleasing behaviors.
They adjust best when there is a routine and daily activities, such as play time, walking time, or nap time, can be anticipated. Routine gives our pets a sense of security. They recognize when to expect a change in the routine throughout the day. Making him/her a part of the transitions throughout the day will reinforce the sense of security as well.

PUPPY BEHAVIOR, GROWTH & DEVELOPMENT
PUPPIES 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.

- Always supervise any interactions between dogs and young children to prevent any biting or ear or tail pulling on the part of either party.

IMPORTANT POINTS ABOUT PACK LEADERS
It is a natural instinct for a dog to have an order in its pack, therefore, the only way your relationship with your dog can be a complete success you must be the pack leader:
- When we humans live with dogs,we become their pack
- The entire pack cooperates under asingle leader
- Lines are clearly defined andrules are set
- Dogs communicateshis displeasure with growling and eventually biting
- Humans MUST be higherup in the order than the dog.
- The humans must be the onesmaking the decisions, not the dogs.
Schedule Feeding Time – Find your dog’s schedule so that you can work with that
- Feed your dog on a regular schedule time, always within a half hour of the time
Schedule Water – Help your dog bee successful
- Keep a schedule for water, however, you should design a schedule that fits you
- Remove the water dish after the first feeding in the morning
- After the night feeding, leave water dish for two hours, then take it up
- Before your last walk for the night, put the water dish down about an hour before
- Then walk your dog 45 minutes after he has had water. There will might be days where that might be an exception for water.
Schedule Walking Time – Find your dog’s schedule, then gently move it to your schedule.
- Start by taking the dog out every two hours for two days, if he goes every two hours,
- Then take him out every three hours, for two days,
- Until you reach the time frame you need – every six hours—eight hours etc
One accident in the house, there is a urine smell that the dog detects and his instinct to continue mark where he smells urine. This is how wild dogs let other dogs know that this territory is taken and for dogs not in the pack to go elsewhere. If your dog has an accident in the house, spray the area with 3 parts vinegar and 1 part water, brush with a soft brush, put a towel on top to absorb the liquid, then take it outside where you want him to go, take it out of the bag and put it on the ground, praise your dog when he goes outside.
