Zach is a beautiful brindle puppy! He is very cuddly and friendly to people of all ages, other dogs and cats!

Zach has a jolly personality, he’s straight forward and simple. He’s a perfect puppy, curious, playful, and loves being petted. It’s hard to find him not wearing a smile or wagging tail; he’s always ready to eat, play and make friends. He’s very food motivated so is easy to train with treats. Please watch his videos to learn how much joy this young pup will bring to your family if he’s given a second chance.

Meet Zach!
One night near the tourist attraction in the suburb, a volunteer overheard puppy whining and traced it to an open sewer line. Zach was found at the bottom, helplessly. With the help of a few friends, out came the wet and trembling Zach, greet everyone with a wagging tail. Zach was taken home by one of the rescue team that night.
Two months later, the volunteer paid Zack a visit; she was disturbed by Zack’s condition: there were beaten marks on his tiny body, and infection spread on the skin around Zack’s butt. It turned out that Zack was tied up by a short leash to a tree trunk, he did not have a proper place to go toilet which caused his skin infection; and he was beaten because he chewed on the owner’s slipper for puppy teething.
Without a second thought, the volunteer took charge of Zack and placed him with foster. Zack learned good house manners and potty trained in his foster home.

Zack is ready for his own forever home. Please welcome him to join your family and give him a safe and happy dog life!

Why Adoption is a Great Option

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