Donson's Story...
NAME: Donson
BREED: Labrador mix
COLOR: Brown/Black
AGE: 4 months
WEIGHT: 16 Lbs
MICROCHIP#: 900108001452116

Donson is a gentle and well-behaved puppy. He loves to be around people and is friendly with children, other dogs and cats.

Donson is a sweet boy. He is very mellow, cuddly and likes nothing more than to be by your side. He is well socialized and loves people. He will greet everyone he meets with a non-stop wagging tail. He is also smart to learn simple commands quickly. He is potty trained on pee pad/newspapers.

Little Donson did not have a good start of life. Donson’s canine mother is an abandoned dog in a banana orchard. She gave birth to many puppies and was feeding on garbage to stay strong to take care of her puppies. Sadly, not long after Donson was born, the rescuer found his canine mother’s dead body on roadside from being poisoned and beaten. The rescuer knew the orchard could no longer provide shelter for the vulnerable puppies and decided to relocate them to foster care.

Donson is current on all shots and can start going on puppy socials. He is very healthy and ready for his forever home. With some basic training, Donson will sure grow up to be a wonderful family dog. Donson’s story started sad but we can put a happy ending to it with your help. We’re looking for families who understand the responsibilities of raising a puppy and the importance of early socialization. Please give Donson a chance to start a good life where he can be away from danger and starvation.

Why Adoption is a Great Option

Donson, 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.
