Buster is friendly dog, calm and mellow. He behaves well around people and is gentle with young children. He gets along with other dogs as well as cats.

Buster is a docile and mellow dog; he’s not a barker, always follows his foster mom as told. Having been through a tough life in his early years, he learns his way of surviving by following people’s orders. Buster’s calm and reliable personality will make him a wonderful companion to any family who opens their arms to him!

Buster’s story:
Buster had an unfortunate and difficult past: he had gone through multiple attacks by other stray dogs and mistreated by heartless humans, which left many scars on his neck, ear, and body. Yet Buster not only survived all these, but was able to present himself as a calm, obedient, and faithful pup.

Bister was born with eight other siblings; counting his parents and cousins there was a total of sixteen lived in the hilly countryside during a period of two years. Buster is the only survivor in this pack.
Thanks to a kind volunteer, who rescued Buster and had him treated by the vet. Buster was skin and bones and yet he wouldn’t eat or drink in the first week while hospitalized; it’s a sign of total despair and lack of trust in humans. However, under the tender loving care of his foster family, Buster started to open up.

Buster now enjoys the gentle touch of people, and loves to ride in the car. On his daily walk, he heeds the commands and knows what is expected of him. When it comes to interact with people, he’s a little hesitant, not very compassionate yet; but he does show a very stable temperament and the desire of a warm hug from humans. With proper socialization and persistent loving care, Buster’s showing tremendous improvement over a short period of time.

Buster is ready for adoption. Would you help Buster putting his miserable past behind and let him be a member of your family to love and care for him? Buster is patiently waiting.

Why Adoption is a Great Option

Buster, a Castro Valley Labrador Retriever/Collie dog 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 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/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.
