TESS AD 05-08-20


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

Tess and Cassie are no longer bonded; that happens sometimes when dogs get to a new place. Cassie is available and Tess has an adoption pending. They are Parson Jack Russell pups that were found as little babies wandering around in the middle of a little country road in a very rural area near in Louisiana. 

ADOPTED ON 05-08-20: Tess and Cassie  are no longer bonded siblings; they are Parson Jack Russell pups that were found as little babies wandering around in the middle of a little country road in a very rural area near in Louisiana. A woman that was coming home from work, decided to take the back roads, came up on them. They were babies and not even old enough to have their vaccinations, which means that they were still depending on mom. They were about the age of a one or two year old human. It was obvious that they were thrown away like trash; they had been dumped and they didn’t have a clue of how to survive on their own. Naturally, being the kind hearted person she is… she scooped them sweet babies up; took them home and fed them.


Cassie and Tess’s rescuer, could not keep them, her big male dog was very protective of her, and therefore, she immediately called a partner of RDVG, hoping that she had a place for them. Her fear was that her dog may hurt them since he had never been around puppies. They were so hungry and covered in fleas. She knew that they would not last long in the wild, they were in terrible shape already. Here rescuer and RDVG’s partner bathed them, fed them good, gave them their first kiss and hug, started their worming’s and then contacted RDVG.

They stayed in the south till they had all their vaccination and are now in a foster home in Terryville CT and ready for a home. Their northern foster mom enjoys them and tells us with a loving voice that they are smart, partially housetrained and very cute. These female litter mates love the crate and sleep together at night.

If you’re looking for a pup that is easy going and loving dogs, then Cassie is right for you. She will make a good family dog, nothing is as better then curling up with this her at the end of the day. She would be great with older people or a family.

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.
