Considering adopting? The first step is to complete our online Adoption Application.
Please do not call the shelter; do the application first.

The Detectives litter, born 12/1/23, combine mama Emmy Lou's black Labrador Retriever with the neighbor's suspected papa, a Great Pyrenees, for a wide variety of adorableness.

These are the 7 available pups - all boys! - who should make lovely family dogs, with the happy-go-lucky Labrador and the love-and-accept-all Pyrenees traits. They vary in size fairly significantly at this age, and we'd expect them all to be between 65# - 90# when full grown (current weights listed below).

SHERLOCK- blonde, biggest - 16.4# on 2/11 (WAVES collar in video)
MARLOWE - blonde, 15.8# on 2/11 (BLACK collar in video)
SPADE - black, a little white on chest and toes, 15.4# on 2/11 (STRIPED collar in video)
MULDER - black, fluffy, white chest & toes, 12# on 2/11 (BLUE collar in video)
POIROT - black, speckled feet, 14.6# on 2/11 (ORANGE collar in video)
COLUMBO - black & white, fluffy, smallest - 11# on 2/11 (GREEN collar in video)
ROCKFORD - black, a little white on chest and toes, 14.8# on 2/11 (RED collar in video)

Puppies require a lot of human interaction, and all puppies will benefit from obedience training and full immersion in their human household. These pups' ideal homes will have someone who can exercise them with a couple of energetic walks each day, plus commitment to training them how to be the best dogs they can be. They hope to have very few hours per day when they will be without the companionship of a human or other pet, and will reward their forever people with boundless love and loyalty!

All pets arrive spayed/neutered, dewormed, microchipped and vaccinated. Adoption fee for Columbo is a suggested minimum of $150 (more gratefully accepted). All pets are placed with a 30-day money-back trial period, to give pet and family enough time to discover any unknown allergies or other conflicts.

Can't come to Republic? Don't let that stop you! We have monthly transports to the Seattle area, delivering adopted pets to their new owners. If you can add a little to your donation to help us cover our volunteer driver's expenses, that would be great!
