Bertie, a neutered male puppy, 3 months old, 12lbs

Meet adorable Bertie!

Bertie is a gentle, happy and playful puppy. He loves being around people and is great with dogs. Bertie is being well taken in his foster home and living with many dogs, big and small. Bertie is also very gentle with young children as the foster son is now 7 years old. Bertie will do well in any loving home who is willing to open their hearts to him.

Bertie and his sister, Bess, were found as stray puppies in a remote mountain where there are no food and shelter. They were starving and waited on the street hoping that someone will spot them and help them. Luckily, a kind older lady who runs an independent no kill shelter spotted them and got off her car to rescue them. She brought them back to her shelter overcrowded with over 350 dogs. She knew she didn’t have the environment for the puppies to grow up happily. She called Bess’s now foster mom urgently for help with them. Bess’s foster mom is an experienced dog rescuer and trainer. Her home is full of dogs waiting for homes. However, she didn’t have the heart to turn her back on them and see them grow up in the shelter. She quickly drove over and brought them back to her home filled with love and proper care.

Bertie has been vaccinated, neutered, de-wormed and microchip. He is a healthy boy and patiently waiting for his forever home where he can grow up safe and happy! Will you be that special family for him?

Why Adoption is a Great Option

Bertie, 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.
