Carlos's Info...

I am already neutered, housetrained, up to date with shots, good with dogs, and good with cats.

Carlos's Story...
Our hearts go out to Carlos. He was left in the shelter's night kennel and was clearly shocked by his noisy new surroundings. Out on his first walk he moved cautiously down the street and would stop by parked cars as though he wanted to jump in and leave his current situation. However, with some gentle coaxing and encouragement, Carlos made his way to the nearby park for some sniffing and exploration. Carlos was particularly entranced by the water in the park's lake, no doubt due to his Labrador heritage.


We're pleased to say that due to lots of love and attention from volunteers that Carlos has adjusted somewhat to shelter life. Because he is easy to handle out in the park he gets walked more than most shelter dogs. Carlos is somewhat overweight but has already lost some weight due to his increased physical acitivity. Volunteers who appreciate his calm demeanor outside the kennel enjoy strolling with him as he walks well on-leash. He will happily trot a bit with you too if you're so inclined. Carlos also loves to sit in the shade under a tree and receive bellyrubs and words of comfort. Such a refined pooch! It's also worth nothing that Carlos has an unusually sleek and glossy black coat.
It's quite eye-catching!


Carlos has been introduced to several shelter dogs and done fine. However, Carlos seems most interested in his human companions and will likely bond closely to someone who will give this dear sensitive boy a chance at a new life. He could make someone a great lifelong companion.

Why Adoption is a Great Option

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