If you’re looking for a friendly, mellow, and well behaved puppy, Aloha is the one! He loves people and is gentle with young children. He gets along well with dogs and cat.

Aloha has a mild nature and unique appearance; he has a beautiful curly tail, black spots on his tongue as beauty marks, and big paws for a mid-sized dog. Aloha loves to play with children and other dogs and cats. He is full of puppy energy; he loves to run in the park with other dogs. He’s so smart to have mastered some basic commands well; he would wait patiently for his turn to clean up paws before entering the house. He shows no signs of food aggression; he is well potty trained. Aloha is a docile and loving pup that will make a great companion for any type of family.

Meet Aloha!
Aloha was kept in a cage less than two feet long when he was spotted by the rescuer in a suburban neighborhood. He was around five months old at that time. His cage was so filthy that probably had never been cleaned before. Inside the cage was some moldy old food and water surrounded by flies.
The rescuer checked around neighbors and found out that Aloha was never let out of the cage since he was born. The cage was sitting outside without any cover from the scorching sun and rain. The rescuer was told that the owner would be happy to have someone take Aloha away.
Aloha was rushed to the vet to be cleaned and checked out. Aloha was diagnosed of anemic and badly underweight; his hair was thin and lackluster due to malnutrition; besides, having been caged since born, walking seemed difficult for Aloha.
Under the loving care in foster home, Aloha was nursed back to health. He became more confident, and has got over his fear toward loud noises. Gradually, Aloha put his abusive past behind and started to show his lively nature.

Aloha is waiting for a family to take him in and give him a home to call his own that he so deserves.

Why Adoption is a Great Option

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