Markos's Story...
AGE: 2.5-3 months old
WEIGHT: 10lbs

Markos, a neutered male puppy, 2.5-3 months old, 10lbs

I am a super friendly, sweet, and playful dog! I love being around people and am great with dogs of all sizes. I love anyone I meet, good with children as my foster mom’s son is 7 years old, and really playful with other dogs. I am doing extremely well in my foster home and patiently waiting for a loving home.

I am still very young and have not had a good life. My canine mother was abandoned in a rundown factory and gave birth to the 7 of us. A kind lady who works at the factory was very worried about our safety and so she feed us occasionally. The owners of the factory was not very pleased and kicked us out. The kind lady brought us home but she is not financially very sound and cannot afford to keep us all fed. She kept us outside where she lives. Unfortunately, one of our siblings fell into a ditch and died. She was referred to my now foster mom desperate for help. My foster mom didn’t have the heart to leave us in such horrible condition as we are all puppies and needed proper care and a clean environment to grow up. Without any hesitation, my foster mom brought us back to her home and gave us the best care. We are sharing a puppy room with another litter of puppies and an adult male dog and female mama. My foster mom has 2 adult dogs with us so that we learn the good qualities from them and that we will be used to big dogs and grow up to be dog friendly. As you can see in our videos we are being well-taken care of and really happy and playful.

My foster mom promised to find all of us loving homes so that we will never starve and will grow up safe and happy! Please give us a home!

Why Adoption is a Great Option

Markos, a Castro Valley Labrador Retriever puppy 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 puppy 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.
