Stracy is a sweet and goofy young pup! She loves to play and be around people and other dogs.

Stracy is friendly, loving and mellow by nature. She is a sweet girl who may be a little shy and timid with new people and surroundings, so needs a home that will give her time to open up and continue to show him lots of love. Stracy loves to explore and play just like any young puppy. She would be best in a home with another well manner dog and ideally home with no small kids.

About Stracy’s rescue:
Stracy’s mother is one of the strays taken care of by the volunteer near the suburban industrial park. In addition to feeding the strays, the main goal of the volunteers were to neuter them. But somehow Stracy’s mother got pregnant and gave birth to five puppies.
During a routine feeding trip, the volunteer was led by the wailing of puppies and found the mother dog badly injured. She suffered multiple bone fractures, apparently hit by a car. The mother dog was rushed to the vet for treatment, and her pups were kept alive by the daily feeding from the volunteer. Stracy is one of the luckier ones who survived the subsequent hit of enteritis which took the lives of her three siblings.
However, life wasn’t kind to Stracy still; she was found lying by the roadside fighting for her life one day. The vet suspected she was clubbed by unfriendly humans. Stracy recovered well after one month’s treatment and loving care of her foster family.

Now Stracy has regained her health and is ready to welcome her new life. She has had a tough start in life. We are looking for a loving home that will give Stracy the foundation she needs to gain confidence. Will you be the angel for her?

Why Adoption is a Great Option

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