Sofie is a female 1-year-old Black Lab / Shepherd mix - s he's a beauty with sweet golden eyes and a dark brown/black coat. Sofie was just rescued from a high-kill shelter in Texas and is now in a Seattle area foster home while she waits for her forever family. 

This happy, friendly girl has the intelligence of a shepherd and the lovability of a lab, who her foster says "is very easy to fall in love with".  Her ideal day is an active one, topped off with lots of human affection - she loves pets, kisses, and belly rubs. She will do best with an active family who will get her daily exercise and will enjoy having her along for walks, runs, hikes, etc - she'll make the best running buddy. Dogs of her breed flourish when mentally/physically stimulated, so ongoing training (such as agility), though not necessary, would be very good for her. She will happily chew on a tennis ball or attempt to get peanut butter out of a Kong all day long.

Her basic training is a work in progress, but she is making strides with her foster as she is treat-motivated (she takes them gently) and is an intelligent quick-learner. She does very well around other dogs (even reactive ones), and has the potential to live harmoniously with cats for an owner who is can confidently introduce them. We recommend a dog-savvy owner or someone committed to learning.

Adoption Fee: $595 - Includes spay/neuter, DA2PP shots, Rabies, Bordetella, Deworm, heart worm test, grooming, microchip, boarding fees, health certificate and transport cost from Texas to Seattle. This adoption fee not only contributes to Sofi's rescue and care, but of hundreds of other high-risk dogs every year.

About Ginger's Pet Rescue

About Our Rescue Group...

Ginger’s Pet Rescue is one of the largest non-profit pet rescue organizations in Washington state, and we specialize in saving Death Row Dogs. Our mission is to give homeless animals with no hope the life they deserve through rescue, foster and adoption. We rely on a large network of fosters in the Seattle area, who provide our dogs with love and care during transition from rescue to adoption. We do not have a physical shelter location; to meet the dogs in our rescue, contact us to connect with a foster or join us at an adoption event!

Ginger’s Pet Rescue is a 501(c)3 non-profit organization. We rely solely on the support from adoption fees and donations to help us provide for the ~100+ dogs in our rescue at any given time.

How We Rescue

We take in dogs from local families in need, in state and out of state shelters, and we also work with overseas rescue groups on occasion. We do not discriminate – we rescue dogs small and big, old and young, healthy and sick, purebred and Heinz 57! Our belief is that every dog deserves a forever home.
Our History

Ginger’s Pet Rescue was founded in 2006 by Ginger Luke after saving one Dachshund’s life turned into a life-long endeavor. The organization is dedicated to providing great care for our dogs and adoption efforts!

Come Meet Our Pets...

Ginger's Pet Rescue has all our dogs in foster care.

You must complete an application and then you can meet the dogs by appointment with the foster dog parents.

You may also come to one of our adoption events to meet our adoptable dogs and fill out an application in person:

Our Adoption Process...

The first step to adopting a pet from Ginger’s Pet Rescue is completing our Adoption Application and email to or submit via our Contact Form on our website. This application will allow us to know more about your family, what kind of pet will fit best and your home, and whether you will be a good match for one of our dogs. Please include the dog(s) you are interested in on the application. We review applications upon receipt and will reply as soon as possible, usually within 1-2 days.

Adoption fees range from $300-$700 depending on a number of the factors, and adoption fees are what allow us to continue our rescue, as our primary source of funding.

If for any reason the dog does not work out, we are willing to take the dog back and refund your adoption fee less a $100 rehoming fee.
