Otter's Info...

Otter's Story...
Otter is a great young dog - a bundle of enthusiasm, intelligent, and full of potential. His foster dad jokes that he has one energy setting - High, and loves to play and play.

Otter is still puppyish, with that happy, inquisitive puppy attitude of seeing the world the first time. He loves people and gets along well with other dogs. An older dog might find Otter slightly annoying, but he would be an excellent playmate for your own young pooch who needs a pal to romp with.

Otter is the best dog his foster dad has ever seen at retrieving. He is such a tireless retriever that you could exercise him by throwing a ball in the backyard...and throwing it and throwing it. Otter doesn't give up - if he has lost the thrown ball or toy he will search for it until he finds it, however long it takes. He has been observed using his eyes and nose for half an hour, finally locating a toy he was seeking. What a search and rescue dog he would make!

Someone in his past has worked with Otter on commands - he knows sit, down and will shake paws. He did quite well at his first adoption event, friendly to all and happy to show off his skills. Otter really wants to please and would love to learn new things. He may have been an outdoor-only dog so house training is a work in progress at this time.

Despite his energy level, Otter can settle, especially at night when he enjoys being snuggled and tucked into bed to sleep.

Why Adoption is a Great Option

Otter, 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.
