Bessie is an intelligent, engaging and playful puppy. She behaves well around people and is very gentle with young children. She gets along with other dogs as well as cats.

Bessie is a super sweet girl who is adored by everyone who meets her! She is lovable, affectionate and playful; she is mellow around other dogs and even cats. Bessie already mastered some basic commands and is potty trained on pad. Bessie won the highest praise from her foster mom as she has a gentle personality, responds well to call, and behaves well in the house. With some basic training, socialization and exercise, Bessie will be the best companion for any type of family.

Bessie’s story:
Nobody knew where Bessie came from. She wandered around a temple in the countryside, lived on occasional handout from worshippers visiting the temple. She would stay out of their way quietly without causing any trouble.
However, there’s a widely held superstition among folks in the countryside that dogs with white feet would bring misfortune. Poor Bessie happened to have white feet! Some people started to shoo her away and suggested that she be taken to the shelter. But the rescuer wanted to give Bessie a second chance because she’s such an agreeable and docile girl!
Bessie has passed the physical of the vet; she was placed in foster care while waiting for her forever home. Several tries at the local adoption fair didn’t find Bessie any adopter; most likely due to the myth of her white feet.

Bessie is a healthy, mellow, and playful pup! She is ready for her forever home. Are you willing to give her a home and let her be your loyal and best friend?

Why Adoption is a Great Option

Bessie, 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.
