Fai from Costa Rica's Story...
More pictures of me:

Hola!! I am Fai from Costa Rica! I am a one year old gorgeous black lab. I am a total lovebug! sweet and extremely friendly and smart. I still think that I am a puppy, and like to act silly sometimes.
I weigh about 40 pounds and I am super lean and healthy young female lab with a beautiful face with striking eyes.

Adopt a Street Dog From Costa Rica brought me to the Bay Area a few days ago to find my forever home. I cant wait to play in all the parks and be taken on walks on the beach with my new family.

I have all the vaccines and have been spayed, dewormed and checked by vets both in Costa Rica and in California to make sure I am medically sound. I am also microchipped.

My Story

I was rescued from the streets in the town of Heredia, in Costa Rica a month and a half ago by Rescate Animal, a rescue group that saves doggies just like me from a life on the streets. On Sept 29th I was living dangerously in the streets with my doggie buddies. I was also in heat and a bunch of dogs were chasing me and i was dodging cars and people by the university campus, finally exhausted from the ordeal i hid inside a box. Students from the university called Rescate volunteers and I was rescued and lived at the veterinary office there for about a month, where they spoiled me and cared for me. The Rescate Animal folks thought i would make an excellent pet in California so they helped me get my doggy passport and all the vaccines and sent me in a big plane to San Francisco.

I am in foster care in Berkeley and get along super with other dogs that live there, I love walking on the trails nearby and I don't pull and have been learning some commands in English, I come when called and also understand "venga" in Spanish which means "come here". I love people, and i am super sweet with kids. They say I could use some training, but I dont see that as a problem since I am smart and eager to please humans.
I love toys and bones, chewing stuff is great. I am not fully house trained, however i like to go on newspapers. Still learning about carpet and they are trying to convince me that carpet is not grass, but just a little more training and i will be a pro.
I have the Lab temperament, sweet and docile, very smart. I love and need excercise and walks and be in the great outdoors. They say that dogs that lived on the street are extremely grateful and loyal to their new owners. I love kissing and sometimes putting my paws on you to say thanks!!!

What Am I looking for?

I am looking for a sweet family or human that can give me a a good safe home. I want to be loved and cared for and in return i will bring lots of joy and love to your home. I would make a great companion!! My life didnt have a great start but I survived and I am ready to enjoy life at the fullest with my special family and make up for all the abandonment and danger i suffered on the streets in Costa Rica. I have been helped by many humans in Costa Rica and in the US, i am even sort of famous in their facebook page! I know I am meant for a special home! is that yours?

Contact me if you think we are a match! I cant wait to start my new life here in the US!

Why Adoption is a Great Option

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