Rudi, a neutered male dog, 3 years old, 42lbs

I am a sweet, gentle, and very well-behaved dog. I am living a very happy life in my foster home and waiting for my own forever home. I am good with people and greet everyone very politely. I am good with dogs of all sizes as you can see in my videos that I am living with many wonderful dogs where we share everything. I love going out on my daily walks and am very gentle on the leash. I love going on car rides and is very well-behaved in the car. I am a very easy to handle dog and my foster mom thinks that the best home for me is a quiet one as I am a very calm, quiet, and well-behaved dog.

My foster mom is the lady who rescued me off the streets. I grew up with my best friend, Nelly. We have never had a good life. We have each other and love each other very much. Nelly and I were owned by irresponsible owners who left us in horrible conditions, where we never have proper food and shelter. One day our owners moved and left us still living in the same horrible place. A young man who had adopted from my foster mom called her urgently hoping that she can take us home and gives us a new life. When our foster mom saw our photos, she didn't have the heart to leave us behind. However her home is full of dogs still waiting for homes. So she brought us to the vet to be spayed and neutered. She was going to release us back where we lived for the time being until she can make space for us. On the day she picked us up from the vet and drove us back, she let us go. We followed her back and forth and she was struggling and really felt sad for us. So she took the courage and picked us back to her car and we all drove home happily. Life in her home with her family is the best lives we ever had together. She gives us lots of love and plenty of food to eat so we won't ever starve again.

I am praying and hoping a nice family will adopt both Nelly and I together so that we can continue to share our lives. I know it's asking for much but miracles do happen. Both Nelly and I are patiently waiting.

Why Adoption is a Great Option

Rudi, 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.
