ADOPTED ON 12-10-16 - Rogue, Xavier and Logan were left on the steps of a veterinarian’s office in a box in Louisanna. They were covered with mange and malnourished. Our wonderful compassionate vet called and asked their now foster if she could take them and find them new homes. Our foster tells us that they are all a joy to take care of. Each one will make a wonderful family member companion.

Rouge is all better now and is full of life, her little small black framed is bright and healthy making this beautiful girl a great friend for a family. She loves to wrestle and play with her siblings and foster friends—she can keep up with her brothers. She is a very sweet natured little girl who loves her belly and ears rubbed and lots of human attention.

Rogue is still a puppy and will need heaps of play time and exercise. As she grows over the next few months, like most dogs, she will calm down however, when she is inside, she settles in nicely and will curly up with her human. She is a dog social dog, which means that she gets along with other dogs and loves her fosters grandchildren and anyone else that she meets. She greets everyone with a smile and tail wag, if she could talk, you could almost hear her say, “Hey, come on in, how are you today”?

A home with another dog would be nice for her but not required, however, because she is a social dog and her new family doesn’t have her furry friends, she will need her human family to satisfy her dazzling social personality. Children would be a plus, she is a perfect companion for someone that works from home, an active family that takes their dog to games or jogs.

This adorable gal is looking for a loving family that will dote on her and treat her as she 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 her.

Rogue is ready to slide right into your heart, do you have the requirements of a forever home of her own and endless love to celebrate her special qualities? Now all she needs is many years where she can continue to be a peaceful and loyal member of a family. Will you open your heart to her and give her the love she so deserves? In return, her companionship and friendship will be with you every day.

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

ABOUT THE BREED

LABRADOR RETRIEVER

These lively dogs have an excellent, reliable, temperament and are friendly, superb with children and equable with other dogs. They crave human leadership and need to feel as though they are part of the family and are easily trained. This breed of dog is wonderful with people of all ages, and interacts well with children.

PET COMPATIBILITY
If a Lab has had plenty of exposure to other dogs, cats, and small animals, and has been trained, he'll be friendly with other pets, too. They get along well with other dogs and can easily adapt to live with other small pets.

CHILDREN
Not only loves kids, he enjoys the commotion they bring with them. He'll happily attend a child's birthday party, and even willingly wear a party hat. Like all dogs, however, he needs to be trained how to act around kids — and kids need to be taught how to act around the dog. As with every breed, you should always teach children how to approach and touch dogs, and always supervise any interactions between dogs and young children to prevent any biting or ear or tail pulling on the part of either party. No dog, no matter how friendly, should ever be left unsupervised with a child.

TEMPERAMENT
The Lab is a wonderful family dog that gets along with all members both big and small, rarely are they aggressive. They are very loving and affectionate and are eagerly playful. Labs have a very positive temperament and get along with most strangers.

PERSONALITY

Labs are extremely versatile and have been put to use in the following roles: hunting, guide dog for the blind, police k9, search and rescue, drug sniffing, retrieving, as well as tricks and competitive obedience.

Come Meet Our Pets...

Adoption fee for each dog is noted on their page and can sometimes vary.

Our Adoption Process...

Rescue Dog Village dogs are boarded and placed in foster homes until permanent, loving homes are found. We do not have a facility to visit - our dogs stay in private foster homes until adopted. We do our best to get to know each dog in our care so that we may be able to match them to the home best suited for their needs.

If you see a dog that you are interested in adopting, the process is as follows:

Step 1: The Application
Fill out an application. Each prospective owner fills out an adoption application. We usually have no history of our rescue dogs and are therefore very careful about placing them in households with children.

You will need to provide employer information, explain why you want the dog, and describe your yard, your other pets and your former pets, if any.

Step 2: Vet Check
Provide a veterinarian reference.
MUST:
•Call your vets office and give them permission to speak to us.
----If one of our volunteers contacts your vets office and they do not have permission to speak to us, it will hold up processing your application or result in closing it due to the volume of applicants we receive daily.

• Provide all information about your vet
----name
----address
----phone number.

We respect and value our volunteer’s time and they do NOT HAVE TIME TO LOOK UP YOUR VETS INFORMATION. We appreciate your help and respect to make sure we have all the information we need.

NEVER OWNED A DOG OR DO NOT HAVE A CURRENT VET REFERANCE:
If you've never gone to one before, you will need to provide a reference. The group will contact them to ask about your ability to care for a pet.

Step 3: The Home Visit
Your application will be reviewed and sent to a volunteer in your area. The volunteer will contact you to schedule a home visit within one week.

We require that everyone in the immediate family, including your current dog (if you have one) come to the appointment to meet your potential new dog. Adopting a dog is a big family decision and requires a commitment from everyone. If you currently own a dog, it must be up to date on shots, spayed/neutered and wear an i.d. tag.

Dogs from animal shelters can be amazing escape artists. By visiting your home, we can help you identify potential escape routes, and keep your new dog safe and secure.

Step 3: The Adoption
Before you bring your new dog home, you must sign an adoption contract with Rescue Dog Village.

Please remember that adoption contributions barely cover our expenses. Additional donations are greatly appreciated and will help us continue our life-saving work.

IF ANYTHING PREVENTS YOU FROM KEEPING YOUR DOG
Sometimes situations arise which cannot be helped. If, for any reason, you are unable to keep a dog you’ve adopted from Rescue Dog Village, the dog cannot be given away.

It doesn’t matter how much time has passed since the adoption. You must either return the dog to Rescue Dog Village, or obtain approval from RDV to transfer ownership to a friend or relative.

If you and the dog you would like to adopt seem to be well matched, we will respond to your application by email. Feel free to contact us at any time regarding the status of your application.
