If you are looking for a great family dog, Italia is the one! She is a sweet, friendly, happy, and well-behaved girl! Italia loves everyone she meets and is very safe and gentle with young children as she is now in a foster home with young children. She is now living with many dogs in his foster home and gets along well with big and small dogs. Italia is a good temperament pup and will do well in any loving home. She is house-trained and crate-trained. She is good on leash and enjoys her daily walks and trips to the doggie parks.

Italia and her brother, Ikarus, were found homeless in a construction site wandering around looking for garbage. Their foster mom was on her way home and spotted them from far away. Her car was full of rescued dogs and didn’t have room for them. She got off her car and gave them some can food. The whole way driving home she was very sad and knew she wouldn’t forgive herself if she didn’t go back and find them. She quickly dropped the dogs at home and got her humane trap. When she returned, Italia and Ikarus were still waiting for her in the same spot. Luckily there was a worker around and he helped her to get them both of them safely on her car. She rushed them to the vet and got a complete medical checkup. Luckily, both of them are very healthy!

Italia has been vaccinated, spayed, de-wormed, and passed negative on her blood tests. She is ready for a forever home.

Please give Italia a loving home and a chance to grow up safe and happy!

Why Adoption is a Great Option

Italia, a Castro Valley Labrador Retriever puppy 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 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 breeders who help with Labrador Retriever rescue. One puppy or kitten adopted in Castro Valley paves the way for another one to be saved.
