STASSI AD 05-12-18


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 05-12-18: Stassi is an adorable lab pup from Texas that loves to give kisses and play. She has already proven herself a champion in her short life. She was an abandoned, skinny, and a sad baby that was seen eating out of the garbage. It is disheartening for us to think that a baby pup had to compete with other hungry dogs for her garbage meals. Local residents reported that she was wondering the streets of Texas, crying and alone. She was so hungry and tired that she desperately ran into a garage one day looking for some help. The dog pounds are full in the south and not a lot of dogs make it out alive. She was blessed to be saved and get out of the cold cruel streets by a Good Samaritan.

Stassi now has a full belly each night and someone to keep me safe. She is a healthy, classy, brave, very smart and will do anything for your approval, love…and a treat, of course girl. She is good with other dogs, cats and children. Her foster tells us that she proudly sits and gives paw, keeps herself occupied when she alone, half potty trained, crate trained, loves her blanket and bed and follows you everywhere—Stassi loves life.

Stassi is very content playing or just hanging out watching a movie—she is active but not hyper. She loves to play but can be a very mellow dog when she get some loving because she loves to snuggle best. As all puppies need a lot of love and patience, Stassi would make a wonderful addition to a family willing to give her the commitment. In turn, he will worm her way into your heart and delight you with her puppy antics!

An ideal home for her would be one where there was another dog to play and romp with and share her days, though it’s not mandatory if it is an active family or someone who runs. She adores humans and returns her appreciation with unconditional devotion. This attentive and smart little gal is just looking for love and a home. She has proven herself to be utterly deserving of the best and we are committed to see that she gets that.


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.
