Max and his friend Lucky are losing their home! And the deadline is coming up very soon (Feb. 7, 2020). Their owners love them, but unexpected life changes make it sad but impossible for the two dogs to move with them.

Adopting a dog with a little bit of age has its advantages. Max has been housetrained, taught social skills, and, more importantly, was showered with love – so love is just built in! Max has been raised with children and cats in the household. He gets along with other dogs and loves to take rides in the car.

Lucky could have many good years ahead of him to share with a special family that wants to adopt him. Moving into a new environment is hard on any pet, regardless of their age, and that's why we give approved applicants a two-week trial period. And we're here to hold your hand through the process. Love is an amazing healer!

If Max touches your heart and you want to give him a home, please visit our website at shamrockpets.com, go to the ADOPTIONS tab, click on “Adoptable Dogs” in the drop-down menu, and follow the instructions to download and submit your adoption application. You couldn’t find a more devoted friend! He has his paws crossed that YOU just might be his new forever family. And if you’re so inclined, Max and his friend Lucky were raised together and they would make a wonderful pair! (Lucky is listed separately on this website.)

All Shamrock dogs have been vetted, are up-to-date on immunizations and rabies shots, and have been microchipped.

"I'd Walk a Thousand Miles For You" Emma and Ruby

We guess we'll never know how many miles these sisters walked but they walked and they walked and they walked. And by the time a wonderful woman and her husband found them Emma and Ruby's paws were swollen, red and blistered. We don't even know where they gathered the energy. Their bones could easily be counted. They acted like they'd never eaten a meal in their life. They were terribly neglected physically. Medical complications arose because of their neglect but the Good Samaritan who found these babies hung in with them. And we mean hung in! It isn't always convenient to be a Good Samaritan. A person who sees a pet in need and decides they can't turn their back. But the payoff for the heart well you can't put it into words but you can sure put it into pictures. Look at Emma and Ruby now!

"I'm a girl with special needs and one request...Please don't move the furniture!"

Hi. My name is Molly. My foster momma calls me “Molly Cuddles” because I love to cuddle in her lap!

I’m a miniature schnauzer. I think I am almost 9 years old. Some people think I act old, but it’s because I am blind. I’m really very young at heart and love to play with squeaky toys! I fool a lot of humans because I get around so well, they don’t realize I’m blind. My foster family says I need a fenced-in yard because I don’t like to walk on a leash. I’m getting used to it, though, and with patience I will learn. Momma says to tell you I’m housebroken. I don’t really know what that means because I’m not a house and I’m not broken.

My first home wasn’t the best, so it takes me a little while to learn to trust humans, but once I know you won’t hurt me, I live with other little dogs and they really help making me feel more confident and safe. I'd like a home with at least one other equal or smaller dog than myself.. Speaking of littles - I'm probably best with older children an adults.

When I first came to my foster home, I had a couple of seizures. I’m on medicine now and haven’t had any more seizures. I will need to stay on the medicine so I don’t have those scary seizures again. Foster Poppa also puts drops in my eyes to make them feel better.

I would love to find my fur-ever home. Will you help me?

If you have enough love to care for this sweet little girl with kindness, gentleness, and making sure she gets her medications regularly, please fill out an adoption application following the instructions on the website, and return it to us at adoptions@shamrockpets.com. A member of our Dog Committee will be in touch once all applications are processed. All Shamrock dogs are up-to-date on their immunizations and rabies vaccines, and are microchipped.

I'M A SWEET GIRL WITH SOME VERY SPECIAL NEEDS.
“Think you could feed me smoothies every day in a high chair?”

Bleu was abandoned in a crate on the side of a country road. It was probably the frayed blanket that caught the eye of the kind gentleman and his son. They weren’t looking for a dog, but they knew she needed their help. Turns out Bleu needed their help even more than they anticipated.

Bleu has something called "Megaesophagus." In essence, it means that her food needs to be blended and she needs to eat from a bowl that is elevated – and even better, in a special chair. (A wonderful person is in the process of making that chair and we’ve posted an example. We will be donating it to the family who adopts her.)

Bleu was recently seen by a Shamrock participating veterinarian. The first thing he said was, “This is truly one of the most loving dogs I have ever met!” And she is!

We don’t know about cats and she’s not been around enough dogs for us to know how she handles herself with them, but she loves older kids and she wants to be her human’s shadow. Seriously, she would be the most awesome loving Velcro dog ever.

We asked the vet if Bleu could live a good healthy life, and he felt that with someone knowledgeable who was willing to make some adjustments, she has all the wonderful traits of a great dog. She just needs someone to love her!

And we didn’t even get to that face! Bleu is absolutely stunning! Her fur glistens and her eyes twinkle. We asked the kind gentleman who rescued her, “Does Bleu ever get on the couch or sleep in the bed?” Slowly he replied, “Nope. But she’d sure like to!”

All Shamrock dogs are updated on their immunizations and rabies shots, and have been microchipped. To learn more about Bleu, write to adoptions@shamrockpets.com or go to our website at shamrockpets.com and follow the instructions to fill out and submit an adoption application.

GEORGIA ON YOUR MIND...

When a Good Samaritan took a trip to Georgia she had no idea that the trip home would include a sweet gal (Pitbull Mix) in desperate need. Georgia had been dumped in a known dumping area and most likely had been bred.

Unable to turn her back on this brown eyed beauty, Georgia came home with this new buddy. Georgia had been saved. But it wasn't just food and water and love Georgia needed. Georgia had been neglected and she needed extra vet care. Well, Georgia is feeling tip top and she's ready for her forever home.

Georgia had to undergo emergency surgery for pyrometria (spayed at this time) and she is almost done with her heartworm treatment. She feels brand new and she looks brand new. And now Georgia is ready for YOU.

If you have a big heart and the time to spend with this very devoted young lady, perhaps Georgia will stay on your mind. Having a home with a forever family is what's been on her mind. Georgia would do best either as an only pet or with other docile dogs. Cats are unknown. Older children would seem like a nice fit. Oh...and did we mention she's cuddler? Yep - she's a "Spooner." And if you adopt Georgia she'll be a keeper!!

Vido is the cat that people like to say is "like a dog." People loving and playful, Vido was found by the parking lot dumpster of the pet store. He is probably 1-2 years old, he has been vaccinated, was neutered at some point in his life and he tested negative for leukemia. Vido is currently not super crazy about other cats, but when he feels safe and has a forever home, we think he'll accept playmates. If you want a lover, you can come see Vido at the Baxter Avenue Feeders Supply store or contact his foster Connie 502-599-2360 (please text for best response)!

This is Custard!

Custard is an 8 month old sweetheart who doesn’t know strangers!
He is equally friendly to humans, cats and dogs. He is seeking a forever home.

He is a bit of special needs in that he needs daily litter box changes. He has been fully vetted and we cannot find a reason for his large water consumption and elimination. He always uses his box, and we use “yesterdays news” litter, it just needs to be emptied daily. The love this boy will give will eclipse this little extra work.

Please feel free to stop by Crescent Hill Animal Hospital at 2265 Frankfort Ave in Louisville where he is housed in the lobby.

Buddy belonged to a lady who left him and 3 others in a home alone. The other cats picked on him so he hid. He is shy at first but it doesn't take long for him to come out and want love and attention. He is super sweet and loving and loves to lay on you.
