I'M A SWEET GIRL WITH SOME VERY SPECIAL NEEDS.
“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 adoptions@shamrockpets.com or go to our website at shamrockpets.com and follow the instructions to fill out and submit an adoption application.

***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 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. Both dogs are microchipped. 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.

Are you seeing double? No need to check your glasses. These two gorgeous and glistening, shiny sisters are an unbelievable pair. Charlotte and Rose came out of the same litter and they are just the best sisters and family members you could even imagine. Charlotte and Rose have been deeply cared for and extremely loved and that's what we'd like to duplicate. Charlotte and Rose love to play with each other and they love to lay with each other. They've been wonderful with children. They love to go for walks and these two ladies have remarkable manners. What's even more amazing is that as much love that is shared between these two they have tons and tons of endless love and kisses to a human family. Rose and Charlotte need a visible secured fence and backyard to romp and play. They love comfy chairs and really just want to be as close to their humans as possible. If you live i n the local Louisville area and have time, energy and double love to spend with these most amazing sisters (adopted as pair only)' we'd love to talk with you and so would beautiful Charlotte and beautiful Rose.

"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!

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!!

EVERY DAY SHE WAITS"

"Googie" 8 Years Old 66 Lbs- Louisville, Ky

She stands by the bed where her Mom used to sleep and where she slept with her two canine friends. But everybody is gone. And worse...no one is coming back. In the blink of an eye Googie lost the Mom who adored her and whom she adored deeply and the two dogs all of whom were her constant companions. Now there's just an empty bed and a very very empty heart.

Googie is at that perfect age. Well, we think all ages bring something special to us humans. And Googie is nothing short of a doll baby. She's kind; she's gentle; she's loving. She loves children and she did fabulous with the dogs who became her family. She's content to lay next to you; happy to take walks (perfect time with this crisp weather). It doesn't take much to make Googie happy. But since her Mom and siblings seemed to vanish in thin air it's been awhile since we've seen her eyes smile.

Shamrock has worked very hard these many years to help families and their pets stay together. When a beloved owner passes it is always in the back of our minds; how can we honor their lives and the deep bond and love they shared with their companion pet. We know Googie had an amazing owner. We're hoping that when Googie finds her new forever humans and can smile once again that her beloved Mom will be smiling down with her.

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 will be your loyal friend for life! I don’t mind having fur brothers and sisters, but I think it would be nice not to share my human. Sorry but I don’t really want little humans around, either, because they kind of scare me.

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?

If you have enough love to care for this sweet little girl with kindness, gentleness, and making sure she gets her medications regularly, please fill out an adoption application following the instructions on the website, and return it to us at adoptions@shamrockpets.com. A member of our Dog Committee will be in touch once all applications are processed. All Shamrock dogs are up-to-date on their immunizations and rabies vaccines, and are microchipped.

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.

Breaking Up Is Hard To Do
"Winston" - Great Pyrenees

They are beautiful magnificent kind souls. If you look into the eyes of a Great Pyrenees you almost feel as if you can fall into their soul. There is no other way to say this except to be honest. Winston lost his home and although he is with a wonderful foster home he still occasionally lets out soft whimpers still looking and wondering where his family is. Everything and everyone he knows is gone. On a brighter note this 5 year old 88 pound doll is directing his love at those who embrace him. This Pyr did NOT guard livestock or gather sheep. This Pyr slept in the bed in the house. Sometimes the little kitten even slept on top of him. Winston jumps in the bed and always makes a spot for his foster family to jump in and cuddle. That's what seems to feed his soul; Love and reassurance. Foster families do save lives but too much movement on these babies takes a toll. The longer a foster stays with a foster family the more they risk suffering another stressful separation. We're not in a hurry. We just want to help heal this boy's heart as soon as possible. Since Winston is like a soft piece of cottony velcro he really needs someone who is home more. He does great with older children and we think he needs and would thrive with another dog. This boy has already touched so many hearts. Full disclosure: Winston had to be shaved down but in a matter of time he will have his beautiful coat back. (Be prepared for grooming if you own and love a Pyr). Someone asked if Winston was a "Working Dog?" He sure is- He's always working to get YOUR love!
