What a cutie we have here! Tinker is a playful little puppy who loves children. She would love to have another doggie playmate around her size, but we are not sure how she would do with a cat.

Tinker is extremely fast and can escape through your feet and out the door or gate in the blink of an eye. A secure visible fence is a must. She is used to roaming free in the house and is potty trained. She would love to sleep in your bed with you! She’s just a bundle of love!

Tinker is up-to-date on all immunizations and is microchipped. If you think you could give her a loving home with the attention she needs, please go to http://shamrockpets.com and follow the directions on the ADOPTIONS tab to download our adoption application.

Baby comes to us because of the ill health of her owners. She is a very sweet and happy girl and loves, loves, loves to cuddle! She is missing quite a few teeth. She had been potty trained in the past, but needs some more training in that regard.

Baby walks well on a leash and rides well in the car. The only time she is crated is when going to the vet; otherwise, she has free run of the house. She gets along with cats and other small dogs who live with her now. She loves everyone she meets.

Baby went to the vet for a checkup recently and was found to have a heart murmur. She is heartworm negative and is up-to-date on all her immunizations, had her rabies shot, and will soon be microchipped.

If you think you have enough patience and room in your heart to give this little girl all the love she craves, please go to our website at shamrockpets.com and download our dog adoption application. After we receive it, someone from our dog committee will be in contact with you.

Ginger comes to us because of the ill health of her owners. She is not a cuddler but does like to sit next to her owner on the couch or in a chair. She has a bum knee (luxating patella, left rear) but gets around quite well. She had been potty trained in the past, but needs some more training in that regard. She is an escape artist and a runner, and she needs a secure, fenced-in yard.

Ginger walks well on a leash and rides well in the car. The only time she is crated is when going to the vet; otherwise, she has free run of the house. She gets along with cats and other small dogs who live with her now. But she can be a little shy, especially if other dogs are in the household.

Louisville/Southern Indiana-Area Adoptions Only
ADOPTION FEE: $50 plus $3 sales tax

Tito comes to us because of the ill health of his owners. He has never been housebroken and is not well socialized, so will need some work in that regard. He is a very sweet dog but can be very protective of his lap partner, so would be best in a home with no young children coming in and out. He comes with a little attitude and thinks he is the alpha dog of the household.

Tito walks well on a leash and rides well in the car. The only time he is crated is when going to the vet; otherwise, he has free run of the house. He gets along with cats and other small dogs who live with him now.

Tito went to the vet for a checkup recently and was found to have a slight heart murmur. Teeth were not examined. He is heartworm negative and is up-to-date on all her immunizations, had her rabies shot, and will soon be microchipped.

***NOTE: He will not be available until after February 20.***

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!

LOUISVILLE LOCAL ADOPTIONS
ADOPTION FEE: $150.00 + $9.00 sales tax

"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!!

WILLIE
ORANGE TABBY
3 YEARS OLD
GOOD WITH OTHER CATS
DOGS UNKNOWN
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.
