TRIPP & KATE AD 12-16-17


ADOPTED ON 12-16-17 – 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.

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.

Tripp and his two littermates were tossed out on the side of the road to fend for themselves, this heartbreaking situation. Tripp and his sister Kate would need to be adopted together. Tripp is part of a beautiful litter of pups, a little boy and his three sisters, tossed out like garbage on the side of the road to fend for themselves, is such a heartbreaking situation that happens all too often. These sweethearts were barely three months old. How anyone thought it would be OK to dump them and assume they would be fine is beyond cruel. Or maybe they just didn’t care what would happen.  Luckily, it is heartening to know that there are just as many good people willing to help, and that is exactly what occurred. A kind woman picked them up as she walked her own dogs and brought them to a shelter where they were immediately treated and fed. As it turns out, these little cuties, Catahoula Leopard/Cur mixes,  are wonderful puppies, full of love and energy, and waiting for a loving forever home.

This is Kate – she looks just like her brother Tripp. Tripp and Kate are beautiful Leopard Catahoula coat is stunning; he is very sweet and loving and has fun wrestling and playing with his foster family. He loves everybody that he comes in contact with and never meets a stranger. Tripp is the only boy of the four and his sister Kate is also available.  He is exceptionally handsome and he has a sweet personality.  He loves rough-housing with his sisters and the other dogs at the foster home, and enjoys children very much. This video is of Kate playing with her foster family. Their adoption fee is 450 each.

Tripp would fit in well with most families, and children to play with would be a bonus. Catahoula Leopards are active breeds and need plenty of exercise. They are also loyal, loving and fun. He is a wonderful family and is a very active young dog who is eager to go go go—is super friendly and dearly loves his humans.  He is just happy no matter where he is!

Like all rescue dogs, Tripp needs a safe and comfortable environment where he will continue to thrive and grow and blossom into the amazingly special dog he is. The only thing missing? A forever home of his own and endless love to celebrate his special character:

Please consider giving Tripp and his sister Kate a chance and open your heart and home to this sweet pair.  They promise to give you years of joy for the whole family.


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.
