I am a friendly, sweet, and playful dog! I love being around people and very playful with other dogs. As you can see in my video, I am very good with young children and loves to play and sleep with my foster mom’s son who is 7 years old.

I was from a litter of unwanted puppies. My former owners were irresponsible people who did get my canine mother spayed. She gave birth to 8 of us. She gave 4 of our siblings to anyone who wanted us. And there are 4 of us remaining which she didn’t want us and wanted to send us to high kill shelter.

My foster mom is an experienced dog rescuer, when she heard our story she knew it was urgent to rescue us and find us home. Her home is full of rescued dogs waiting for homes but she did not have the heart to turn her back at us. My foster mom loves us very much and promised us a loving home and will never give up on us. I am a very good dog and praying for a loving home. Please give me a home and a chance to live!

Why Adoption is a Great Option

Barney, 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.
