Ben is a docile, warm, and friendly dog. He gets along with other dogs and cats. Ben is smart and has a gentle nature. He was able to master basic commands and house rules in very short time. He’s a little shy but likes to be around people. At his foster home, he won everyone’s heart!

About Ben’s rescue:
One day when the rescuer rode bike passing by a gravesite on the country road, she sighted two puppies. Followed them into the deep grass, there were five more puppies hiding. She started to bring them food from time to time.
When the time come to neuter them, she found out that one puppy had been poisoned to death, and another one, Ben, had multiple deep cuts on his belly. All the puppies were neutered. Their ears were cut as a mark, since the original plan was to do TNR (trap/neuter/return) for all of these puppies. Considering the place was no longer safe for them to grow up, the rescuer decided to place them with foster family and seek adoption for them. Ben was treated for his wounds and settled down at the foster home.

Ben is doing very well at his foster home. He has passed the physical. Ben is ready for his forever home. Will you open your arms and welcome this sweet boy to become a member of your family?

Why Adoption is a Great Option

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