"Gretel is a gorgeous little girl who just turned a year old in August. She is about 50ish lbs, spayed, Gretel, 13 months old, 50ish lbs

Gretel has so many wonderful things going for her! She is very smart, playful (but not hyper), protective, loyal, loving, and so affectionate. She is the type who will follow you around and want to cuddle closely next to your lap and in your bed at night. She is already spayed, microchipped, dewormed, and up-to-date on all vaccines. She is housebroken and has been through PetsMart Puppy and Intermediate Classes and knows basic commands like sit, stay, paw, and down. She does OK walking on a leash and is getting better everyday. She is outstanding about only chewing her toys and bones and not the furniture!

Gretel loves to play with the submissive dog she currently lives with but she is dog selective though so would need to be tested and properly introduced to any dog she may live with. She currently lives with cats but needs to be monitored with them because she does like to chase them for play. She has no experience living with children.

Gretel needs a special someone to help her work through her kinks. She likes to guard her food so needs to be separated from other animals when she eats, or be closely supervised (she currently eats in a cage). She gets nervous around new people and situations and can come across as reactive. Once she feels comfortable she is very affectionate but she needs a strong handler to help her through these anxious times. She can also be reactive on a leash when she sees other dogs so needs more leash training but is making great progress. She is a major homebody and really needs a fenced yard where she can get her daily exercise since she only likes short walks.

Adoption Fee is $65 and we will deliver Gretel to her new home after a meet and greet in a neutral location. Adopter is required to sign an adoption contract. Gretel really needs to find her special someone with a structured home who can help her blossom into a balanced dog. This gorgeous girl is very well worth the effort!!

Please contact her foster mom Susan jnreports@hotmail.com for more information about Gretel or to set up a meet and greet. Using any other email will just ADD a delay in getting the information to you.

About Sheltered Paws Dog Rescue

About Our Rescue Group...

Sheltered Paws Dog Rescue was established in 1997 in order to save shelter dogs that need a foster placement.


We are a 501 (3) (c) non-profit organization. All donations are tax-deductible.


The reasons for fostering include:


  • Orphans too young for adoption
  • Nursing mothers
  • Mildly sick/injured dogs
  • Dogs that have been abused
  • Dogs that can not adjust to living in a shelter environment

Sheltered Paws Dog Rescue and a local shelter work together to place these dogs in temporary, loving foster homes. When you adopt from us, you are helping to save a shelter dog!!


Our Goal is to save shelter dogs in need and place them in good homes. To promote the placement of special need dogs with the help of adoption bags, grooming, socialization, and providing needed supplies. To pair the right dog with the right human companion(s), enriching everyone's lives.


Our Mission is to develop trust and love with a dog that needs to be reminded that many humans can and will take good, loving care of it for the rest of its lives. To then find loving homes for these previously abused, abandoned, sick, neglected and confused dogs. To give the dog a solid re-start with behavior, health, and trust. To spay/neuter our rescued dogs of age to stop the cycle of unwanted litters.

Our Adoption Process...

Some dogs are at the shelter and some are in a foster home. If the dog you like is at the shelter, please contact the person listed. She will fill you in on all the details.

If the dog you are interested in adopting is currently in a foster home, please EMAIL the individual "Foster Parent" noted in the description.



An Adoption Form Questionnaire will be emailed back to you. Upon completion, email the application back to shelteredpaws@yahoo.com


After review, we will be happy to set up an appointment for you to come and visit with the dog in the foster home.
If the adoption is appropriate, you will be asked to sign an adoption contract.

A nominal adoption fee is charged for each dog. This fee includes a vet check, all shots, any necessary medical work and medication, spay/neuter (if possible and appropriate). All of our work is volunteer. WE MAKE NO PROFIT ON THESE ADOPTIONS. This fee does NOT include those additional things we supply while the pet is in our care e.g. pet supplies, food, toys, grooming, training, etc. (plus a heck of a lot of hugs!)
