Nelly's Story...
Nelly was thought to have Parvo, a deadly disease, soon after she came into the Berkeley Animal Cares Shelter! Since she was very active (when a dog has Parvo, one of their symptom is lethargy), her caretakers wanted to make sure that she had Parvo. So, they tested her again and the test came back negative!! Turns out it was a false positive because she had recently been vaccinated. WOOHOO! We whisked her right up and into a great foster home where she continues to thrive. Now all she needs is a forever family to grow up with and love. This is what her foster's say about her, ”Nelly is a wonderful, bright and an EXTREMELY smart dog. In one night, I was actually teaching her to give me her paw... not sure if she remembers that today. during the first night she slept on a pillow in the corner of the house with some newpapers on the side and did not even pee or poo! She tends to pee a bit when she gets overly excited, but I think that's because she's a pup and I am sure she will grow out of it... She's starting to play with chew toys. She LOVES PEOPLE!!!! NOT SHY AT ALL!!! All she really needs is some attention and love...”

Why Adoption is a Great Option

Nelly, a Berkeley Retriever (Unknown Type)/American Pit Bull Terrier dog was adopted! Here's how you can benefit by looking at adoption as an option to buying a Retriever (Unknown Type)/American Pit Bull Terrier for sale in Berkeley, or seeking a Retriever (Unknown Type)/American Pit Bull Terrier dog from a breeder in Berkeley.

  1. Rescues and shelter volunteers in Berkeley 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 Berkeley 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 Retriever (Unknown Type)/American Pit Bull Terrier breeders who help with Retriever (Unknown Type)/American Pit Bull Terrier rescue. One puppy or kitten adopted in Berkeley paves the way for another one to be saved.
