Liam's Info...

I am already neutered, housetrained, up to date with shots, good with kids, good with dogs, and good with cats.

Liam's Story...
Liam was in a rural shelter that was filled beyond capacity. Dogs were doubled and tripled up in cages (Liam shared his with a chihuahua). Liam needed out fast! Dusty Paws met his transport and took him into foster home #1. There he met Ellie - instant attraction, they frolicked like the pups they still were. Both are barely a year old.

It was soon noted that Liam was not able to bear weight on one back leg. Modified hip surgery was needed to correct an old injury and Liam was moved to another foster home to recover on July 19. The surgery that he had called for almost immediate exercise afterward, graduating quickly from simple walks to longer hikes on varying terrain, in order to build up his leg muscle. With a great attitude and a little help from his friends Liam is progressing wonderfully, already able to gallop with all four paws touching ground.

At 60 lbs, Liam is a smallish Lab mix . He is so sweet and so friendly, loving and smart. He is an easygoing, happy dog who loves to be around people. He is good with children and with other dogs, even with cats. He is also house trained and will come to you when called. He may always have a slight limp, but apart from that he is the most perfect dog you can imagine!

Vet's recommendation is that Liam should be trim and active for life, encouraged to get as much exercise as he can handle. Liam recently went on a 3-day camping trip and had a blast. So we're looking for an active, fun-loving family for him to join.

Why Adoption is a Great Option

Liam, a Castro Valley Labrador Retriever dog was adopted! Here's how you can benefit by looking at adoption as an option to buying a Labrador Retriever for sale in Castro Valley, or seeking a Labrador Retriever dog from a breeder in Castro Valley.

  1. Rescues and shelter volunteers in Castro Valley already know the personality and tendencies of their pets. This means they can match you with the right pet. That will makes it much easier transition to owning a pet for yourself and your new pet.
  2. On average adoption fees are much less than you'd pay a Castro Valley breeder, or pet store. Plus most often rescue pets have already been to the veterinarian for a check-up, had a round of vaccinations, and are spayed or neutered. That is a lot of savings!
  3. You will become a hero, and give a needy dog or cat a loving home. In fact, there are even Labrador Retriever breeders who help with Labrador Retriever rescue. One puppy or kitten adopted in Castro Valley paves the way for another one to be saved.
