Meara is a super sweet and friendly pup! She loves people and children. She gets along well with dogs as well as cats.

Meara is a docile puppy, very warm and cuddly. She is friendly to other dogs, humans and also cats. She has the angelic smile that will definitely melt your heart! She is very smart; she already mastered some basic commands. She can be very playful and energetic when she plays, and then become very quiet if she’s asked to do so.

About Meara’s rescue:
Meara was rescued along with her 5 siblings in the rural mountain area. The mother dog hid them on a hillside, which was surrounded by busy road and deep ditch. What’s even worse, the puppies were facing harassment from other stray dogs while the mother dog was out looking for food.
Luckily we found them in time and took them to the vet to have them examined. They were overall healthy, except for mal nutrition and skin infections. All puppies were placed with foster families where they received care and medical treatment. Under the loving care in the foster family, their coat become shiny and all have put back a good weight.

Meara is a healthy and happy girl! She is ready for adoption. Meara would be a great companion for any type of family. Please open your heart and let Meara become your best pal and bring lots of joy to your family!

Notes:
Meara may be allergic to certain vaccines (i.e. Pfizer Vanguard plus 5/CV-L). The symptoms first started with a fever, and then her hind legs would lose the strength to stand up. It has happened three times so far, and every time the symptoms emerged a few days later right after the shots (Pfizer Vanguard Plus 5/CV-L). The treatment we found that works well is to keep her appetite and give her enough food, and then provide her enough vitamin-D or sunlight along with appropriate amount of calcium. She will be back on her feet in just few days.

Why Adoption is a Great Option

Meara, a Castro Valley Labrador Retriever/Shepherd (Unknown Type) puppy 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) 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/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.
