“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 or go to our website at and follow the instructions to fill out and submit an adoption application.

You got your seatbelt ready? You're going to need it to hold on to your heart! If Dusty could talk we think his first words would be "Ooohs and Aws." That's what Dusty hears wherever he goes! Add that to a child's giggle and you're sure to see little Dusty tail end wiggle! So much to say about Dusty. He's delightful; he's funny; he's extremely intelligent. Dusty sums up his environment; calculates the best route to have fun with a built in GPS to navigate straight to your lap. Dusty is the perfect mixture of playful, joyful and loving with a touch of impish curiosity. Dusty has been living with the most amazing and loving family. We can't emphasize how much the children love Dusty and how much he loves them. On the flip side when Dusty is relaxed and comfortable he will also seek out Foster Mom and Dad. Dusty has a sensitive side so he'd do great with a fun interactive family but loud noises or quick moves do make him a little nervous. Dusty would also do great with another sweet playful canine companion. Continued consistent, positive training will make Dusty's confidence soar. The sky really is the limit for this amazing puppy and his ability to receive love and give love is also without limits. Dusty would do much better with a family who is home more.. If YOU are looking to expand your family as well as your heart and gain a most loving, loyal devoted friend...Dusty is looking for you! Oh and he's looking for a fenced in yard too!

"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!

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!!

WEIGHT: About 40 lbs.
--Includes New Albany, Clarksville, Jeffersonville in Southern Indiana
ADOPTION FEE: $150 plus $9 sales tax

Lottie is one of three puppies who were recently rescued. She is a large, strong puppy at 40 lbs., measuring 19.5” at the shoulder. She is very sweet and loves to play, so any dog buddies would need to be around her size. She would probably do better with older children because of her strength. She is comfortable in new environments and has done well with obedience training. She loves people and is housebroken. She has NOT been cat-tested. A sturdy visible, above-ground fence is a must.

If you think you could give Lottie a loving home with plenty of playtime, please visit our website at, click on “Adoptable Dogs” under the ADOPTIONS tab, and follow the instructions to fill out and submit an adoption application. All Shamrock dogs are up-to-date on their immunizations and rabies shots, and are microchipped.

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, 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'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?

"Left Ear Down - Right Ear Up." Well as if Randy Jay wasn't adorable enough when that one ear goes up and that one ear goes down and that curly tail wiggles in a circle -it's all over! Randy is the three "Ers." He's a Snuggler, He's a Cuddler and he's a lover. And if all that wasn't enough this kiddo is funny. His antics alone will keep you smiling.

Randy is with a wonderful Good Samaritan who saw such great potential in this little guy. She also realized he needed some help with building his confidence. She knew he had great potential and she was willing to put the time necessary to allow him to shine.Oh yes he's shining big time!!

Randy Jay needed one more thing besides love and patience. He needed reassuance that he would not be left alone that a loving human would always come bck for him. He just can't stand the thought of being abandoned.

That's why we feel that Randy Jay would do exceptionally well with someone who was home more. A family with children 11 and over could be great. Randy Jay thrives with love and attention and adoration. Hey don't we all? Randy might do well with a sweet docile dog. He is currently living with a cat but doesn't seem to mind either way. If you know Jack Russells they are extremely intelligent and playful. Going for walks; playing with the ball and toys; keeping him interactive with delight both you and he for hours. But when it's time for snuggling all bets are on that Randy Way will be heading your way - and right into your lap. Been waiting for some love to come your way - it's all right here in little Randy Jay. P.S. As if he didn't have other great attirubtes -Toby also does a mean "Cha-Cha." on his back legs.

Sasha is believed to be a beagle mix. Estimated to be about 2-3yrs old. Sasha was running loose for at least 3 weeks before being trapped as she would not let anyone within 6feet of her. At first Sasha was rather skittish around other dogs and cats however having a submissive dog playmate who loves to run is a must! Sasha loves to be held and loved on by children but would much rather play with another dog. Sasha has been living with both a male and female dog and has done well and loves to play with both. Sasha has also been living with a male and female cat. Sasha enjoys to occasionally chase the cat however just wants to play with them. Sasha would do well with someone who stays home as she loves to be under your feet and on your lap through the day. Sasha does stay in a crate while nobody is home however she does best if she is in the crate with another dog as she hates to be in a crate alone. Sasha is like having a built in alarm. She will speak up if a stranger is around. Sasha does well if let out often and will usually use pads if left on the floor. Sasha has been trained to potty pads as she makes the transition to outside training. Sasha needs a secure fenced in yard! She would not do well in an apartment setting. Sasha needs a submissive playmate who can keep up with her as she is able to keep up running with a 2yr old Shepard. Sasha is VERY fast!! After Sasha gets attached to someone she wants to be with them almost at all times. Sasha needs someone with patience and lots of love to give. Training to help her trust strangers and her fear of abandonment afer her terrible outside and trecherous ordeal. Sasha is blooming every day and with the right home we know she will continue to flourish and shine. Oh did we mention she has the cutest face ever!! Just look!
