Gretel's Story...
Hello! My name is Gretel and I’m the only girl left in my litter available for adoption and I’m the most laid-back out of all of these guys. Don’t get me wrong, I love a good adventure, but I’m not going to waste my energy on silly boy stuff. I am one of 6 pups in my litter that were born into rescue because our pregnant momma was rescued in the Corridor of Cruelty. Thankfully she was rescued so we never had to live a day on the streets. We’ve been living in a boarding facility until we were able to have all of our puppy shots and were able to be spayed/neutered. We are guessed to be Labrador/Shiba Inu mixes and we were born in April, 2014. We look a great deal like our mom, which is where we get our Shiba Inu looks, but have some lab qualities too, so we are guessing that was our Dad’s breed. Our mom is only 34 pounds, so we are estimated to possibly be between 35-45 pounds once fully grown. We are all very sweet and cuddly and we hope that you like that because we’d love to start snuggling as soon as possible. We are a bit shy at first because we haven’t been around too many people other than our rescue friends and the staff at the boarding facility, so you’ll have to be a little patient as we warm up. We are all very silly, playful and adore lots of attention, but our innocence and cautious nature is super cute. Our favorite things to do are run through the yard, roll around with each other, and play with all of the toys we’ve been given. We are very loving and happy puppies and we really enjoy all of our new visitors, both dogs and people. We are still very young and haven’t spent any time in a real house, so we need more work and time on our potty training and leash walking, but we are smart, so we will be perfect soon enough. With that said, we need a family that has patience, has the time to teach us, and can remember to keep their important things put away until we learn the rules. My ideal new family should love to play and teach me everything a puppy needs to know, should be active enough to take me places like the park and on your adventures, and affectionate so I grow up knowing how much I am loved. If you are interested in fostering or adopting me, please go to, click on More Information and then either the Foster or Adopt options. My adoption fee is $150, which includes my neuter, microchip, all of my puppy shots and a clean bill of health. Out of state adoptions include a transport fee of $225 (airline flight, travel kennel and travel documents included).

Why Adoption is a Great Option

Gretel, a Seattle Shiba Inu/Labrador Retriever puppy was adopted! Here's how you can benefit by looking at adoption as an option to buying a Shiba Inu/Labrador Retriever for sale in Seattle, or seeking a Shiba Inu/Labrador Retriever puppy from a breeder in Seattle.

  1. Rescues and shelter volunteers in Seattle 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 Seattle 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 Shiba Inu/Labrador Retriever breeders who help with Shiba Inu/Labrador Retriever rescue. One puppy or kitten adopted in Seattle paves the way for another one to be saved.
