Comet's Story...
Comet is a Newfoundland mix boy, with who knows what else in there. He was born about October 2008. He is a very confident dog, with a happy disposition and a lot of joy. He's much smaller than a Newfoundland, probably around 60-65 pounds, and from the history we were able to get on him, it sounds like he may have been trained as a sled dog at one point.

Comet, probably as a result of his sled dog training, pulls HARD on leash right now; the volunteers will be working with him, to teach him to heel (or at least WAIT FOR US, ha). The person who brought Comet to us says he hasn't been inside much, but that he did appear to be housetrained the times they had him inside. Unfortunately, right now Comet does exhibit some marking behaviors while in the shelter; he is scheduled for neuter in mid-April, which will hopefully help to break him of the marking urge.

He is definitely an alpha-dog personality, with a real zest for life. You can almost see him laughing to himself as he trots around investigating all the world has to offer. Comet will do well in pretty much any home that has the time and patience to work with him - obedience training classes would be a great idea, and he seems to be quite smart so should pick up the basics quickly. Comet loves all people, no matter how big or small; he has been reported to be safe with cats too.

Like all our adult pet placements, Comet 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 $75; 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 donation to help us cover our volunteer driver's expenses, that would be great!

Why Adoption is a Great Option

Comet, a Republic Newfoundland/Shepherd (Unknown Type) dog was adopted! Here's how you can benefit by looking at adoption as an option to buying a Newfoundland/Shepherd (Unknown Type) for sale in Republic, or seeking a Newfoundland/Shepherd (Unknown Type) dog from a breeder in Republic.

  1. Rescues and shelter volunteers in Republic 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 Republic 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 Newfoundland/Shepherd (Unknown Type) breeders who help with Newfoundland/Shepherd (Unknown Type) rescue. One puppy or kitten adopted in Republic paves the way for another one to be saved.
