Facts about Shadow

  • Breed: Great Pyrenees Mix
  • Color: White
  • Age: Adult
  • Size: X-Large 101 lbs (46 kg) or more
  • Sex: Female
  • ID#: 1097
Shadow transferred into Forget Me Not from the Colville Tribal Pound, along with her friend Daisy. They lost their prior home because they killed some chickens, so we know Shadow has a healthy prey drive; as such, we don't recommend her for homes with cats, small furries, or smallish poultry/livestock. Other than that, she is a dream dog! The vet estimated her age at about 5; Shadow is a Great Pyrenees mix, possibly with some Labrador or Golden Retriever in the mix. She is a big girl - over 100 pounds - but has very good manners and doesn't jump up or knock people over. She is a little bit selective about her dog friends, so will need patient introductions to join a family with an existing dog.

Shadow is housetrained and very treat motivated - from not knowing any commands when she arrived, today she knows "sit" and is fairly consistent with it. You should be able to teach her all sorts of commands with positive training and treats.

Shadow should integrate easily into pretty much any type of home. She has not shown any inappropriate chewing or excessive barking, even when in her shelter kennel, and likes all sorts of people, including children. She is receptive to leash training and doesn't usually pull, so should be fairly easy to take for walks even though she is big. She is very affectionate and would love a home with lots of attention available. Although her breed is known for independence and a willingness to live as outside dogs, Shadow has no interest in staying outside and would much rather be wherever the humans are.

Shadow and her friend Daisy can be adopted together, but they are not required to go together.

Shadow comes with a 30-day money-back trial adoption period.

Spay/neuter, worming, microchip and all age-appropriate shots are always completed before placement, and are included in the adoption fee (suggested minimum $95; more gratefully accepted!)

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

About Forget-Me-Not Animal Shelter

About Our Shelter...

We are a limited-admission, low-kill animal shelter in Ferry County, WA, and are staffed primarily by volunteers. We receive no funding from any government source, and are supported by donations and grants.

Come Meet Our Pets...

The shelter is located at 49 W Curlew Lake Rd, Republic; we schedule appointments to meet the pets.

We do transports of adopted pets to the Seattle and Spokane areas at least once each month, and can sometimes schedule transports to other locations in WA, ID, OR, MT as needed.

Our Adoption Process...

Our minimum adoption donations are indicated on each pet's listing.

The first step toward adoption is to fill out the application, which we can email to you or you can find on our website:

Filling out the application in no way commits you to adopting - it simply enables us to get you preapproved, in case you decide you want to adopt. If you are then approved and offered a pet placement, you may always refuse the placement. If you accept a placement, we always give you three days (for puppies and kittens) or thirty days (for adult dogs and cats) to live with each other; if during that time you decide that your new pet simply won't work out, for any reason, we will accept the pet back with a full refund of your adoption donation. You could either return the pet directly to us, or have it picked up on our next transport! I must say, we are very proud of our successful placement record - we really work hard to make sure you and your pet will be a great match.

If you are out of our immediate area, we ask that you email some photos of your home, yard (including fence if you have one), any "animal-specific" areas (such as a dog run, cat tree, or sleeping area) and any other pets you currently own. Sometimes photos enable us to skip the pre-adoption home visit, which can speed things up considerably for out of area adoptions! For the vet reference, either a vet who is seeing your current pets, or a vet who saw a former pet, is acceptable. If this is your first pet ever, congratulations on joining the pet world! :-D We will consider your application without a vet reference, but we would like to know what vet you think you will use for your pet. Without a vet reference, please be sure to provide at least two strong personal references who would know how you are with animals.

If we have an upcoming transport scheduled to your area, we will make every effort to process and approve your application in time for the transport.
