NAME: BELLA AGE: 2 YEARS OLD NAME: REMY AGE: 3 YEARS OLD BELLA and REMY are a BONDED PAIR BREED: BLACK LABS FEMALES, SPAYED WEIGHT: WILL BE MEDIUM/SLIGHTLY LARGER FENCED-IN YARD REQUIRED ADOPTION FEE: $275 for both dogs LOCAL LOUISVILLE/LOWER INDIANA ADOPTIONS Think you're seeing double? Well, you are actually see two amazing bonded Black Labs. Bella (pink collar) and Remy (green collar) were rescued from a local shelter. It was hard for them to lose the home they were familiar with, but with great love and attention from a loving foster, Bella and Remy have blossomed. These babies love being inside and they love to cuddle. But true to their breed, these two stunningly gorgeous Black Labs also love to play, fetch, go for walks, and of course they love to run. Labs have a reputation of staying puppy-like for a long time. Imagine having double-the-fun and double-the-love with this dynamic duo. Kind of like having your own entertainment center! These babies would do best as the only two in the home. We think they'd be fine with older children. They are strong and they are smart, clever and sweet. And Bella and Remy are looking for their forever home together...forever! If you think you have what it takes to provide Bella and Remy with their forever home, please contact The Shamrock Pet Foundation and fill out a dog application to get the process started. The girls are waiting for you with tails wagging.

BUDDY - PuppyTerrier/GSD Mix Approx. 4 months old 22 pounds Loves Other dogs (Needs a playmate) Cats Unknown Older Children Secured Visible Fenced in Yard Louisville Local Adoptions Adoption fee: $150.00 Buddy Buddy You're so funny!! "Hi my name is Buddy. I am around 14 to 15 weeks old and I am full of energy. I love to play with all my toys especially trying to see how many I can fit in my mouth. I am potty trained as long as you hear me whining at the door. Although I am very quiet when I want back in, so please keep a close eye on me till I get the hang of things. My foster mom has two big dogs and I love playing with them just as much as I love playing with the tiny dog that lives next door. I will need a fence because I love to run and play outside! Sometimes I like to be cuddly but then there's times I just want to lay on my own so please don't get your feelings hurt. At night I will sleep in my crate, but I like to keep the door open so I can keep an eye on things or get up in bed with my foster mom to sleep. Although I love my foster family I am excited to find my forever home I have so much love to give." Puppies need lots of love and they also need time to provide positive consistent training. You'll want to make sure you have time to invest in training...but we all think and Buddy agrees it will be so worth it!!

  • Labrador Retriever, Boxer
NAME: CHARISMA BREED: BLACK LAB/BOXER MIX AGE: 1 YEAR OLD WEIGHT: 40 POUNDS HOUSETRAINED GOOD WITH OTHERS DOGS (Needs a dog companion) (Not cat tested) NEEDS A YARD WITH A SECURE VISIBLE FENCE ADOPTION FEE $150.00 LOCAL ADOPTION (Louisville Area) Really needs another dog sibling and someone who is home a lot. In a way we guess you could say Charisma met some amazing karma when a good samaritan swooped down to save her life. It's a sad, despicable image, but after Charisma was most likely hit by a car the adolescents nearby gathered rocks and beautiful Charisma was literally their target practice. It's amazing how animals can be treated so poorly and yet they choose instead to travel the path of love. With a wonderful surgeon and veterinarian, Dr. Gailor, little Charisma's leg was pinned. It has been a bit of a recovery road with our amazing foster Lecia (who has opened her heart to many - and boy has she saved lives!), but this little girl is now healed and running like the wind, and Lecia has been the nurse of her heart and caretender of her soul. Now that Charisma is healed, spayed and up and running, we'd like to see if she could take a straight path to your heart! Since Charisma is thriving so well with her furry brothers, we think having a furry sibling is a must. Charisma is an under-the-blanket sleeper ...but not to worry about her taking up the bed, because Charisma curls up into a sweet ball of love. Charisma does not like to be separated from her family and does not do well in a crate. Wherever you are she just wants to be with you and her furry siblings. And now that this sweet, beautiful, shiny girl's leg has healed, she'll need a fenced-in yard too! From an object of target practice to an object of unconditional love, Charisma is now ready for her forever happy home. If you feel and see all the sweetness, love and gratitude that we see in this most special of angels, let us know. She deserves the best of karma life has to give! Charisma's adoption fee includes her spay, rabies vaccine and immunizations. If you would like to meet her, please go to The Shamrock Pet Foundation's dropdown menu under ADOPTABLE PETS, print out the dog adoption application, and send it back to us to get the process started.

Charlie Siberian Husky 8 months Old 25 Pounds Secured Above Ground Fence Required Adoption Fee: $150.00 Louisville Adoptions Dog Selective Cats No "Honey,I shrunk the Husky!" Charlie is so full of puppy!! Puppy Love, Puppy Energy and Puppy Snuggles. Charlie is like having your own Entertainment Center. Charlie is larger than life but at 27 pounds Charlie is very small for a Husky. And the vet doesn't think Charlie will get much larger. If we had one word to describe Charlie I guess we'd say he's "Delightful." You can't help but smile at Charlies antics because that face just melts your heart. But let's address the realistic side of owning a puppy. TRAINING!! TRAINING AND TRAINING!! We believe in positive training but we believe every puppy needs it. Love, Consistency and Good training makes for a happier dog and a happier family. If you haven't owned a Husky before, please do your research. Huskies are a marvelous, intelligent breed but they are also runners. And once a Husky runs - well it's hard to catch and stop a Husky. That is why a fenced in yard (visible) is an absolute must! Charlie needs someone who is home more during the day and would do good with older children and another docile dog. When Charlie's energy is spent he really is a cuddle bug. Huskies like all dogs are pack animals and Huskies particularly want to be with their pack. Charlie would do well with someone who is home more and someone who will carve out time for exercise. Charlie has amazing pawtential and we feel the right family will be an amazing beginning and foundation for a truly amazing family member. Charlie is good with older children, Dog Selective so would need a meet and greet. Charlie's a wee bit too curious with kitties so we'll say no to kitties right now. Charlie is way more than a stunning face - with the right training and patience Charlie will sparkle like a diamond - he just needs a wee bit of polishing! And at the end of the day all Charlie needs is a whole lot of love!!

KANSAS HOUND MIX 35 POUNDS 7 YEARS YOUNG FENCED IN YARD LOCAL LOUISVILLE ADOPTIONS ADOPTION FEE $150.00 You're just too marvelous - too marvelous for words! Well not exactly because we have sooooo many glowing adjectives for Kansas. He's affectionate...No...Affectionate doesn't seem like enough...Kansas is a Kuddler!! Kansas is not just the perfect size to cuddle this kid has a very high I.Q. (We're wondering if there is a MENSA for dogs?) Kansas is a bit like a human inside a little hound mix. Kansas reads the room and he can sense kind folks a mile away!! Once Kansas gets to know you and you both fall madly in love with each other...Kansas will go to great lengths to entertain you as well as himself. Kansas knows tricks, he likes to take walks and if he's not doing those things he kind of likes it quite a bit if you'll rub his tummy and scratch his years. At only 7 years old this kiddo has a whole lot of love and a whole lot of life to give. Kansas would do best in a quiet home - with someone who is home more and perhaps another sweet docile dog and children over 12.

THE STORY OF MALIK - FROM FERAL TO FABULOUS "A SURVIVING SIBLING TELLS HIS STORY" NAME: MALIK BREED: BLACK LAB AGE: UNDER 1 YEAR OF AGE GOOD WITH OTHER DOGS GOOD WITH CHILDREN OVER THE AGE OF 15 (Not cat tested) NEEDS A SECURE FENCED-IN YARD LOUISVILLE LOCAL ADOPTION ADOPTION FEE: $150.00 In October of 2015 tons of folks reached out to Shamrock and every rescue possible to save a group of Labrador puppies. The rural area was impoverished and a distance from Louisville, but the terrified eyes of those dogs was nothing short of haunting. The condition of each and every one of them was just disturbing. Their collective sad faces looking up at the camera as if to say, "Please, you're my last hope," was too much for us not to jump in. We knew we were dealing with severe neglect, terrible mange and parasitic infestation. We did not realize we were dealing with a baby who had never known the touch of a loving hand or the whisper of a comforting word. When Malik was so severely malnourished and weak, he soaked up the love and care he received from his new caretaker. But he had never received the cues and direction from a human before, and suddenly the trauma of all that neglect came out in fear, anxiety and deep trust issues. But we had come so far, it seemed anything short of forging ahead would have made us feel as if we had betrayed Malik. With all his great medical care, he looked beautiful. His thick, crusty skin had healed, and his fur shone like a shiny black diamond. But who would take him and understand? Who would adopt him? Who would see the diamond in the rough that we saw? And who would make sense out of all the hard work and great medical care invested that made so many of us fight for this little black lab? It's the underground folks you don't see, from the vets, to the vet tech, to the volunteer who said, "I will support proper training because this boy's life and soul are salvageable." For the last several months, Malik has been under the amazing guidance, training and love of Jerry Pridemore. For those of us who saw each video that slowly transformed what some would deem a hopeless case, it has been nothing short of a miracle. You know, in life the people who we treasure and cherish the most are the ones who have our backs...the ones who, despite our flaws or the scars on our souls, not only continue to embrace us, but they would never ever dream of abandoning us. They have a name for those kinds of people. They are called FRIENDS. Malik is finally ready to be adopted. If you have a heart big enough for him to be in your life, please contact The Shamrock Pet Foundation and fill out a dog adoption application to start the process rolling. The adoption fee covers his heartworm and fecal tests, neutering and up-to-date immunizations. He is also microchipped. Malik has waited so long for this. We know his forever home is out there somewhere!

At 8 years old this stunning, energetic blue-eyed girl doesn't have a wrinkle on her face (or her soul). She is just an amazing dog! Misha is a medium-sized Siberian Husky. She is very devoted to her humans and would do quite well with another sweet dog. We think she's just the perfect match for cuddling. Misha's favorite thing in the world is to be with her humans and other sweet dogs. But we can't forget her other favorite thing...and that is to RUN! That's what Huskies love to do. So she needs a secure, fenced-in yard. But running in the yard during playtime is just another wonderful way to strengthen your family's bond with this beautiful creature. If you've ever owned a Husky, you know they are intelligent, loving and fun. And if you've never owned a Husky, you will be in for a most amazing gift in a most amazing dog. That face, that smile, those eyes - OH MY! If you adopt Misha you're in for a sweet surprise! Contact The Shamrock Pet Foundation and fill out an adoption application to start the process rolling.

NAME: NIEGEL BREED: LONG-HAIRED JACK RUSSELL TERRIER OR MIX AGE: 9 YEARS OLD SIZE: SMALL HOUSEBROKEN DEFINITELY NEEDS ANOTHER PLAYFUL FURRY BUDDY NEEDS SECURED FENCED-IN YARD GOOD WITH JUST ABOUT EVERYTHING AND EVERYONE CURRENTLY LIVES WITH TWO GREAT KIDS ADOPTION FEE $150.00 LOUISVILLE LOCAL AREA ADOPTIONS ONLY OK...what is the first image that comes to mind when you hear the name NIEGEL? Hmm? Round glasses? a dinner jacket and an ascot? a quite prim and proper fellow? Well, just nix that image out of your mind, because cause HEEEERE'S NIEGEL! OMG! This little terrier mix was pulled from a local shelter. How could we pass by that sad, sweet face? And his poor little rear was eaten up so much by severe flea allergies that he was somewhat hairless and it was very painful. Then some wonderful rescuers and veterinarians stepped in, and...dare we say...he is looking quite dapper today! So let us tell you a wee bit about this chap. He is funny, he is cute, and he is personality plus! And...he is just so dang happy to be in a home with a most wonderful new foster Mama and her family (cats, dogs older kids). Okay. We know...the best adjectives ever...happy and grateful! Niegel is just so happy and he is just so grateful to be in a loving foster home! Niegel says, "Throw away that silly ascot and dinner jacket. I'm interested in you throwing me the ball!" Oh, and Niegel wanted to add that he knows some folks are tummy sleepers and some are side sleepers. He's an "inside" sleeper - inside the blanket, that is! Niegel needs a canine buddy close to his size to play with, and he's gotta have a fenced-in yard. Niegel has some limited vision, but it doesn't stop him from running, chasing and hanging with his furry and human family. Niegel's love for his human does not diminish with a furry companion, but when you're busy or not home, a furry companion makes him feel very safe. Otherwise, the only other thing this amazing little boy needs is...YOU! So if you think Niegel would be a great fit for your family, please contact the Shamrock Pet Foundation and fill out their dog adoption application to get the adoption process started. Niegel is waiting...as patiently as he can...

NAME: PENNY BREED: MINIATURE PINSCHER FEMALE, SPAYED AGE: 5 YEARS OLD WEIGHT: 15 POUNDS HOUSEBROKEN GOOD WITH ADULTS AND OLDER CHILDREN ESCAPE ARTIST NEEDS A VERY SECURE FENCED-IN YARD ADOPTION FEE: $250.00 LOCAL LOUISVILLE AREA ADOPTION ONLY Are you ready for this young lady? She is a doll-baby with EXTREME personality traits. She has had very little obedience training but is a love bug who will capture your heart, nonetheless. This little girl needs a kind-hearted owner with a firm hand. Otherwise, she will definitely establish herself as the alpha in your household. This means she can be somewhat aggressive when she meets other dogs she doesn't know. Penny was rescued from a local animal shelter. She was turned in by an owner who was evicted and could not keep her. She holds up one leg when she runs but will set it down when she is standing. Whatever happened to her, it only slightly reduces her mobility. She runs and plays but might have some slight tenderness in the paw if she over-does it. Penny loves to play and jump, and eating is her favorite pastime. Penny is housebroken but her signals to go outside are very subtle. She is very attentive and will quickly settle into your routine to go outside. She is extremely loving and requires LOTS of attention. But she mostly just wants to be where you are. She wants to be able to see you or lay quietly in your lap, at your side, or above your head on the back of your recliner. She will try to escape out of the fence if she knows you are on the other side. Then she'll stand next to you and look up at you with those big brown eyes, as if to say, "Aren't you proud of me for figuring out how to get here from there?" Penny is TERRIFIED of loud noises…thunder, fireworks, gun shots. She is definitely a dog that will require a Thundershirt and/or a lot of extra TLC and hugs from you if she can hear fireworks go off. She loves to roll herself up in a blanket on your couch, and at night she will go right into her crate if you say, "Time to go to bed" and hand her a treat. She does travel well in the crate in a car and will happily jump into a car if the door or tailgate is open. Penny would do best as an only dog or with one other dog about her size. But she does need to have someone who is home a lot who can help her work off her tremendous energy. She is primed and ready for someone who can teach her how to play and follow commands so she can be a good canine citizen. And with her intelligence and speed, she would also make an AWESOME agility dog for someone who would take the time to train her. Rabies vaccine, CIV vaccine and immunizations are up-to-date and she is microchipped. If you think Penny might be a good fit for your family, please contact Shamrock Pet Foundation and submit an application form.
