Diana's Info...

I am already spayed, up to date with shots, good with kids, good with dogs, and good with cats.

Diana's Story...
Diana and siblings - the "Royal" litter - and their Mom(s) have had an interesting and convoluted time up to arriving at the shelter. Charles, Fergie and Kate arrived as a sheriff's impound, after being reported abandoned in a driveway, where they huddled together, lost and confused, until they were brought in. A few days later, one of our volunteers discovered someone giving away puppies, which they people claimed were two different litters from two sister mother dogs... they were also giving away the mother dogs, who were in horrifically thin condition. By the time we arrived, there was only one pup left, but the people admitted that the three we had on impound were also from these mothers' two litters. We left with the fourth sibling, Diana, and both mothers, and are now trying to find all of them great new homes.

The mother dogs appear to be spaniel/lab mixes, with a little chow in the mix (Delilah has some purple on her tongue, though Ophelia does not), and possibly a little Newfoundland too... so we assume these things factor heavily in the pups' breed mix, though the father is a mystery. These four pups were born approximately 4/12/11; they will be spayed/neutered and ready to go home by the end of June.

We expect these pups to be pretty energetic, and probably between 55# - 75# when full-grown, though it is impossible to guarantee adult size of "leMutte" pups! The possible moms weigh 50 pounds (Delilah) and 62 pounds (Ophelia), though both are so think they could easily add 15-20 pounds with proper nutrition.

These fluffy kids are happy, friendly pups who are now living together in a foster home that has plenty of people, other dogs, a cat, and even some chickens for them to learn about. They should make fabulous family pets, including families with children (though we always recommend pups and toddlers NEVER be left together unsupervised, for the safety of both).

Puppies require a lot of human interaction, and all puppies will benefit from obedience training and full immersion in their human household. These pups' ideal homes will have someone who can exercise them with a couple of energetic walks each day, plus commitment to training them how to be the best dogs they can be. They hope to have very few hours per day when they will be without the companionship of a human or other pet. They will reward their forever owners with boundless love and loyalty! We start all puppies on their vaccinations as soon as they arrive at the shelter (this litter will have had 2 vaccinations before they are ready to go home); most will require additional boosters in the first couple of months after arriving in their new homes, and rabies vaccination between 4-6 months of age.

Spay/neuter, worming, and all age-appropriate shots are always completed before placement, and are included in the adoption donation (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.

Why Adoption is a Great Option

Diana, a Republic Spaniel (Unknown Type)/Labrador Retriever puppy was adopted! Here's how you can benefit by looking at adoption as an option to buying a Spaniel (Unknown Type)/Labrador Retriever for sale in Republic, or seeking a Spaniel (Unknown Type)/Labrador Retriever puppy 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 Spaniel (Unknown Type)/Labrador Retriever breeders who help with Spaniel (Unknown Type)/Labrador Retriever rescue. One puppy or kitten adopted in Republic paves the way for another one to be saved.
