***FAMILY DOGS – NOT HUNTING DOGS***

A Good Samaritan rescued Buddy from being euthanized. When they got home, he found out how scared Buddy really was…hiding under the table, behind the couch, anywhere where he could not be seen. You see, Buddy had been living in an outdoor pen all of his young life, with little to no human contact, and moving indoors with people was extremely upsetting to him. As you can probably guess, he felt trapped.

So this Good Samaritan had the foresight to get Buddy his very own therapy dog, Lulu, who is very slowly helping to bring him out of his shell. This Good Samaritan has asked Shamrock to help rehome these two dogs as a bonded pair, as his work takes him away for weeks to months at a time, and they are presently in a temporary home.

Lulu is a loving and sweet Beagle mix whose charm and patience is helping Buddy learn to trust humans. She does well on a leash and is crate-trained. Both dogs are presently being housetrained.

Buddy and Lulu definitely need a secure, visible fenced-in yard. They need lots of room to run and play, and someone with an extreme amount of patience who, along with Lulu, can help Buddy come out of his shell. The veterinarian has advised that Buddy needs Lulu (his “therapy playmate”) so he does not return to his frightened state.

Both dogs are up-do-date on all their immunizations. Lulu is microchipped and Shamrock will make sure Buddy is microchipped before he is adopted. They come with crates, collars and leashes. If you can find it in your heart to adopt this adorable pair and keep them together so Buddy can blossom, please visit our website at http.//shamrockpets.com and go to the ADOPTIONS tab and follow the instructions to download and submit our dog adoption application.

***FAMILY DOGS***

Cooper 8 and Roxi 7 are two All-American Mutts that have been together since Roxi was 8 weeks old.

Don’t let size fool you. Cooper and Roxi are as gentle as they come. They live with a 2-year-old and a newborn. Gentle with kids, playful with dogs, and loving with people – they have never met a stranger. They did fine with chickens so cats will be fine too. Unfortunately their military family is getting stationed out of the country and Cooper and Roxi need a furever home!

Cooper and Roxi know basic commands. Whether playing ball or sunbathing, Cooper and Roxi are fun-loving dogs. Inside with their family both dogs are very loving and quiet. Well-behaved and affectionate, these two would complement any family looking for unconditional love!

If your family has a heart and home big enough for this dynamic couple, please go to http://shamrockpets.com and follow the directions on the ADOPTIONS tab to fill out and submit a dog adoption application and start the ball rolling!

SADIE SADIE LOVELY LADY! Sadie is such a soulful dog. Just one look in those eyes and everyone falls in love.

Sadie is sad because she loved the woman who saved her after one of the tragic hurricanes. Her Human Mom had become her Earth Angel. If you know much about Labs, they seem to be young forever. The sparkling gray around her muzzle tells us she's lived life but she also has so much more life and love to give.

We'd like to find Sadie a home much like she had, with a loving family who will cherish and adore this very sweet gal. Sadie is pretty much just add food, water and love. And we promise you she will return that love one hundred fold.

Sadie has done so well with her foster mom's dogs that we think another sweet dog would be a huge plus for her heart. Sadie loves to take walks, still loves to play - and her favorite thing is to be very close to YOU!

"Walking on Sunshine"....That is Stevie every day of the week! Stevie wakes up every morning ready for a hike, run, or a walk. She is definitely a morning dog.

And she is still a puppy...a BIG puppy...with an extreme amount of energy to burn. Stevie is a Weimaraner mix with all the wonderful personality traits of a Weimar: Athletic, Energetic, and Affectionate. Stevie needs a routine with plenty of exercise. Obedience classes would be suggested for her while she is still young.

After a sun-shiny day Stevie is quite the snuggler, ready to soak up affection watching T.V. or a movie. Stevie would do great with a dog for a playmate or to snuggle with for a nap. She is also good with children, but preferably older than 10 as her high energy and eagerness to love could cause her to accidentally knock down a young child. She is housetrained and crate trained, and loves to go for rides in the car.

Stevie is very smart and active, requiring leadership from her human. She is a great dog looking for a wonderful family to be a part of and love.

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!!

ADORABLE
GORGEOUS GREEN EYES

WILLIE SAYS NO MORE ON THE ROAD AGAIN!!

Folks pretty much told the same story about Willie. He'd been hanging around the apartment complex a good 2 years or more. Willie had a habit of jumping over patio fences or knowing when a patio door might just be open. Willie had his routine down pretty pat. He got to know the kind folks who might put out a bowl of water of food for him and he learned to stay away from the folks who claimed he was a bit of a "Peeping Tom Cat."Guilty as charged! Willie was observed standing in front of screen doors in the summer and closed doors in the winter. His M.O. was the same. "Meow. Think you might have room for a kid who just wants a place to lay his head?" Door after door was slammed in his face. But when Shamrock heard about Willie's plight a new door opened!! Willie hung up his traveling clothes and he settled right into a kind foster's home. The first couple days he slept like he'd never slept before. And then he played with the other cats and then he cuddled. And that's all Willie really wanted!! The right family to open their door and never let him go.
