Meet adorable Gem!

Gem is a super sweet, friendly and happy puppy! Gem is doing very well in her foster home. Gem loves people and is very polite when meeting people. She loves all dogs and is great with both big and small dogs. She is also very good with the foster family’s son who is 8 years old. Gem will make a great family dog as she is so loving. Gem is a great temperament puppy and with some basic training, she will sure grow up to be a wonderful dog!

Gem was abandoned in a remote mountain where there are no food and shelter. She fell into a gutter and was crying out for help. A kind man who lives nearby found her and quickly picked her up. Gem was starving and ate and ate at the man’s home. He already has 2 dogs and was not able to keep her. He kept her in his door step and poor girl just stayed hoping someone can help her. The kind man called several rescue groups but they were all full. The vet referred him to called Gem’s now foster mom. Gem’s foster mom is an experienced dog rescuer and found over hundreds of dogs loving home. Her home is full of rescued dogs waiting for homes but she knew it was urgent to take her home and promised her a good life!

Gem is a healthy girl and had her vaccinations, rabies shot, spayed and microchip. All she needs is for a family to open their hearts to her and give her a new life! Please give Gem a chance to live.

Why Adoption is a Great Option

Gem, a Castro Valley Labrador Retriever/Shepherd (Unknown Type) dog was adopted! Here's how you can benefit by looking at adoption as an option to buying a Labrador Retriever/Shepherd (Unknown Type) for sale in Castro Valley, or seeking a Labrador Retriever/Shepherd (Unknown Type) 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/Shepherd (Unknown Type) breeders who help with Labrador Retriever/Shepherd (Unknown Type) rescue. One puppy or kitten adopted in Castro Valley paves the way for another one to be saved.
