Biscuit is somewhat reserved and can be a little shy at times, but
she is very alert and loves attention. She gets along with everyone she meets. She has been working on potty training and is making some progress.

She is also a climber, so she needs a secure, visible fenced-in yard and an owner who can keep a watchful eye on her…both indoors and out!

Once we have processed the applications, someone from our Dog Committee will get in touch with you.

***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. For the same reason, we suggest any children in the family be over 10 years old.

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! And although they get along with other dogs, we would recommend that they be the only dogs in the household.

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!

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!!

BREED: GSD/Husky Mix
GENDER: Female, spayed
AGE: 8 years old

Southern Indiana: New Albany, Jeffersonville, Clarksville
ADOPTION FEE: $125 plus $7.50 sales tax


Mollie comes to us as a result of a broken home. Unfortunately, she is unable to go with her owner into a new home, so she has asked us to help find Mollie a wonderful new family.

Mollie appears to have a preference for women, and although she is shy and cautious, she will warm up to the people she lives with and even to visitors. She will voluntarily remove herself from situations that make her feel uncomfortable.

She is extremely attached to “her person” and will follow that person everywhere they go. She is extremely smart and can learn a new routine or trick within a day. She is not a cuddler, but loves to lay near her person.

Mollie loves to play in the snow and swim at the lake, and she loves squeaky toys. She also loves to go for walks and runs. Riding in the car is okay with her.

Mollie can be free-fed. She eats when she’s hungry. She does not guard her food, toys, or bones with people. She is very obedient and attentive. She knows sit, wait, stay, lay down, paw, shake, crawl, leave it, go to bed, and “who’s here.” She is not an excessive barker but will alert you if there is something or someone at your house.

Mollie has a high prey drive and thrives when given a job to do. Because of this drive, she would probably not be a good candidate for a home with cats or other small animals. She is also very dog-selective so might be best as the only dog in the family.

She does have extreme separation anxiety, so would do best with a family who has someone home most of the time. She will escape from a fence if left alone for too long. She cannot, and never should be, crated. She will hurt herself physically to escape a crate/cage. She WILL escape. Has bent crate doors to escape and has a scar on her face from this happening. She is also terrified of loud noises and of guns. Fireworks, thunderstorms, blasting, gun shots in the distance, etc. will make her extremely anxious and she will pace. She usually requires medicine if any of these things are expected or happen.

If you think you have a heart and home big enough for this wonderful girl, please download and submit our dog adoption application, found on our website under the “adoptions” tab at http://shamrockpets.com.

All Shamrock pets are up-to-date on vaccinations, rabies shots, heartworm checks, and are microchipped.

"We are not just attached at the hip - We are attached at the heart!"
PLEASE ADOPT US TOGETHER - WE DON'T WANT TO BE APART!!

Hi! We are Rio and Lola. We may not be biologically related, but we love each other like siblings. We love to wrestle, tug, and run together both inside and out. We love to play tag, when one of us goes out the back door and waits to pounce on the other, and then play chase all over the yard. We also love to hang out and chill while watching a movie, or outside on a sunny day. With Rio’s sleek, short fur and Lola’s luscious, shiny coat, we are the perfect pair for sofa snuggles.

Everywhere we go, people tell us what a striking pair we make. Prepare to get stopped by so many passersby to tell you what super models we are. Every sidewalk is a runway for a duo as gorgeous as us!

We don’t just have beauty; we have brains and personality too! We love to find objects and figure out puzzles. We love to show you our tricks for treats. We are sure to add so much joy to your family.

Rio:
Hi! My name is Rio. I’m 100% Doberman and also 100% Goofball. I may look intimidating, but I am the biggest snuggle bug on the block. I love to hang out with my family and friends. I love to show you my tricks for treats, and to play tug, and run around.

My big, floppy ears and my expressive face show you exactly how I’m feeling. I love to go to the park, to meet new people, and to have friends come visit me at home. I love to play with other dogs, but my people always come first. Nothing makes me happier than learning new tricks to show off when it’s working time, and snuggling up on the couch or bed and watching a movie when it’s relaxing time.

Lola:
Hi! My name is Lola. I am such a sweet and beautiful girl. My beauty cannot be denied; I’m half Australian Shepherd, half Husky, and all super model with my icy blue eyes.

I have the agility of my Australian Shepherd side, and the relaxed personality of my Husky side. I can catch things in mid-air, run and run and run, or just hang out under a shady tree and count the cars that pass by. That’s one of my favorite places to be; under a tree. I also love to sit under the table and relax with you during meals, and jump on your bed and cuddle if you let me.

I love to roll over for belly scratches, and I’m so good at coming back to you when you call my name. I’m the best, most portable heater when you’re cold! It takes me a little bit to warm up to new friends. But once I do, I love to play tag, tug, and wrestle with them!

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!

Sadie is very strong and definitely would require a harness. She would also do best if she had a male dog near her size as a companion in your household.

If you think you have what it takes to win Sadie's heart, go to our website at http://shamrockpets.com and click on the ADOPTION tab, then follow the instructions to download and submit our dog adoption application.

"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.
