Asa's Story...

MICROCHIP#: 900108001328177

Asa is a super friendly and mellow young boy! He behaves very well around people and is gentle with young children. He gets along with dogs and cats.

Asa is a good natured, calm, docile, and easy-going young boy. He is very friendly to other dogs. Even in front of food, he’s a true gentleman. He loves to play food catching game and is very good at it. Asa will be a great companion for any type of family since he’s with such a great temperament!

About Asa’s rescue:
One morning, on her way to feed stray dogs, the rescuer spotted Asa crossing a busy street, with a metal leash still on him. Asa looked very tired and filthy. When the rescuer led him to a safe place and put food and water out for him, Asa gobbled them up in no time.
At the vet’s office, a scan of chip to no avail, followed by a full checkup. Unfortunately, he was infected with heart worm. After being treated in the hospital for a whole month, Asa finally got a clean bill of health.
In his hospital stay, he was highly praised by all the staffs for his good temperament. The original plan was to have him TNR (trap/neuter/return), so his ear was cut as a mark. Asa being such a mellow and docile young pup, the rescuer did not have the heart to let him out on the street as a stray again. Asa was placed with foster home.

Asa really deserves a good family to love him and care for him. Are you willing to give him a chance to share a happy life with your family?

Why Adoption is a Great Option

Asa, 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.
