NAME: Buddy BREED: Terrier/GSD Mix AGE: Puppy, approx. 8 months old WEIGHT: 40 Pounds Loves Other dogs (Needs a playmate) Cats Unknown Older Children Needs a Secured Visible Fenced-In Yard NO OUT-OF-STATE ADOPTIONS LOCAL LOUISVILLE, KENTUCKY AREA ONLY 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!!

NAME: Eevie BREED: Shih-Tzu/Yorkie GENDER: Female, spayed AGE: 9 months old WEIGHT: 9 lbs. NEEDS A SECURE FENCED-IN YARD ADOPTION FEE: $355 NO OUT-OF-STATE ADOPTIONS LOCAL LOUISVILLE, KENTUCKY AREA ADOPTIONS ONLY WOULD LIKE A CANINE SIBLING/EQUAL SIZE OR SMALLER CHILDREN OVER 10 Look who has just come to us, asking for help! What a beautiful, sweet little girl! Don’t you just want to pinch those cheeks and kiss that little black nose? Cute, cute glam shots of this little Southern Belle! Eevie is a happy, playful, energetic puppy. Yes, this little girl just loves to play! And she is very, very fast, so will need a secure, fenced-in yard to play in. She is just so excited to explore her world! Eevie gets along great with other dogs around her size and would love to have a sister or brother about her size to play with. She is also very curious about other bigger dogs, but has not really been around them. She is very spoiled and would love to sleep with you in YOUR bed and really would like free roam of your house. But she does need a little training – after all, she is still a puppy! She is not crate-trained, but might (reluctantly) be willing to learn that a crate is her safe space. She wants to be a good canine citizen. Eevie is up-to-date on all her immunizations, is heartworm negative, and has been microchipped. If you think you could provide Eevie with a loving forever home, please go to http://shamrockpets.com/adoptions/dogs/ to find our dog adoption contract, fill it out and submit it to us. A member of our Dog Committee will be in contact once your application has been processed.

ELLIOTT SHIH-TZU A YEAR TO A YEAR AND A HALF OLD 12 POUNDS FENCED IN YARD VISIBLE LOUISVILLE/LOWER INDIANA ADOPTIONS OK - Say Cheeze - Ha Chew - It's a Shih-Tzu! Do you know that Shi-Tzus are just one of the sweeest breeds ever. And little Elliott is no exception. But HE really is exceptional!! This boy has swag. He is sporting his new grooming "Do." and he's feeling so much better and he's looking mighty fine. This little compact package is more than unwrapping a pretty package with a bow. Yes...he's gorgeous but underneath that flowing hair (that does need to be groomed regularly) is a clever, entertaining, affectionate young man. Shih-Tzus generally do so well with other dogs and we feel at his age he really needs a dog equal to or less than his weight. Elliott is a sleep in the bed, sleep on your lap, sleep next to you kind of boy. But that's because Elliott needs to reserve his energy for the toys he likes to play with the laps he loves to run in your backyard. Elliott would do well with older children (we're not sure about cats) and he'd really do best with someone who is home more. Elliott had a rough start in life and his future is looking very bright....but Elliott really does want his human in sight. He's light weight and big hearted. Now that's a combination that's a recipe for love. IF your family is looking to add a family member - What a coincidence because Elliott is looking for a family too!!

Goose Pit Bull Terrier X 2 Years Old 60 Pounds Wonderful as an only Pet Fenced in Yard Required (Visible) Housebroken Adoption Fee $175.00 Louisville/Lower Indiana Adoptions Duck Duck -Goose Goose. Our little "Goosey," is one amazing girl. Don't let that majestic beautiful face fool you (Strike a pose) this girl is beauty and brains. That inquisitive stare says it all. We think if there was a MENSA group for dogs Goose would be right at the top. Even more amazing than her high I.Q. is her high "You Q." With Goose it's really all about her human. She longs to be wherever her human is. Goose wants to please. Even when she's running laps around the yard she loves to look back at her foster family for approving nods. And if Goose catches you smiling at her well just add in a little baby talk and that tail starts wagging so fast you'd think the velocity would pick her right up in the air. But Goose said "Not this girl...I'll leave the flying to the pilots.!" But if YOU are looking for that kind of love that will make your head spin Goose is that kind of gal. She'll laugh at your same old jokes as if she's heard them for the first time. She'll pretend she likes all your favorite shows but her love for you ...Now that's for real! Goose would be best as an only child. Goose is a bit of a fitness advocate so someone who is interactive, will throw balls, take walks and be Goose's best pal ...Well that and a lap to put her head on and a pillow (most likely on your bed) in all honesty that is all our dear Goose ever really wanted. A home to call her very own.

  • Up-to-date with routine shots
NAME: Maximus BREED: Great Dane/Lab X GENDER: Male, neutered** AGE: 14 mos. old WEIGHT: 120 lbs. of love NEEDS A SECURE, VISIBLE FENCED-IN YARD ADOPTION FEE: $250.00 LOUISVILLE-AREA ADOPTIONS ONLY, PLEASE Ever wanted to kiss a dog's nose? Well, NEVER SAY NEVER! If kissing a dog's nose has never crossed your mind, then you haven't met Maximus! Just look at that nose made for kisses! Maximus truly is a work of art ... but more importantly, Maximus is a work of HEART! This kid (14 months old and already 120 pounds) is lanky and loving. He runs like a gazelle, yet crawls into a teeny tiny ball when he wants to cuddle up next to you. But don't let that manly size fool you - Maximus has the heart of a little boy. Maximus has enough self confidence that he doesn't mind us using the word "sensitive." That's why we need to find the perfect home, with a family who is sensitive to his needs. So, what does Maximus need? Well, he loves kids but he doesn't want to mistakenly knock them over, so bigger kids are better. He loves couches and he loves beds and he loves to snuggle ... so "Snugglers" please feel free to apply. Max is NOT an outside dog! (But he does need a visible secure fence on site.) Now don't get us wrong ... Maximus loves to play, run and romp outside, but after his intense 15 minutes of silly, he wants to be back inside with YOU! Max is a wee bit needy, so he definitely needs a family where someone is home most of the day. Max is currently living with a wonderful foster family with children, and they would love to find a similar setting for this special boy. If you're looking for the ultimate love with the Maximum return - well, then you simply must - Adopt Maximus! **When Maximus was neutered his stomach also was tacked. (Larger breeds can be prone to stomach flipping, which can be fatal). A potential adopter should have some knowledge of large-breed dogs and their issues.

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: Penny BREED: Miniature Pinscher GENDER: Female, spayed AGE: 7 years old WEIGHT: 16.2 pounds HOUSEBROKEN GOOD WITH ADULTS AND OLDER CHILDREN GOOD WITH DOGS...but she has an alpha personality NOT GOOD WITH CATS ESCAPE ARTIST NEEDS A VERY SECURE FENCED-IN YARD ADOPTION FEE: $250.00 NO OUT-OF-STATE ADOPTIONS LOCAL LOUISVILLE, KENTUCKY AREA 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 first 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 run and play. She plays a little rough, so it would be good for other dogs in the family to have a similar-shaped muzzle so they are on equal footing. She is what one of our committee members calls a "popcorn dog." It won't take you long to figure out why! She gets so excited she jumps straight up in the air over-and-over again ... especially when she's going for a walk. However, eating is her favorite pastime, so she must be monitored to keep her girlish figure. She is a food thief and will scarf down your entire plate of food while you're not looking. Penny is housebroken. She is very attentive and will quickly settle into your routine to go outside. But she prefers to be indoors...with you! 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. And when you come home after being away, she can hardly contain herself because she is so happy. She will try to escape out of the fence if she knows you are on the other side. Then she will sit nervously 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?" What a smart girl she is! 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 has some separation anxiety so she is NOT a good candidate for apartment living. She would do very well in a house with a large fenced-in area where she could run. She loves to roll herself up in a blanket on your couch, or sit behind your head on your recliner, 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. Due to her boundless energy, it is best to travel with her inside the crate. 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.

NAME: Sugar BREED: Norwegian Elkhound GENDER: Female, spayed AGE: Approximately 7 years old WEIGHT: 55 pounds HOUSEBROKEN GOOD WITH OLDER CHILDREN GOOD WITH DOCILE DOGS CATS UNKNOWN VISIBLE FENCED IN YARD REQUIRED ADOPTION FEE: $250.00 NO OUT-OF-STATE ADOPTIONS LOCAL LOUISVILLE, KENTUCKY AREA ONLY Sugar is a Norwegian Elkhound. She's much more than a stunning face. She's loyal, she's playful and she's extremely intelligent. She loves to go on walks, and at approximately 7 years old (55 Lbs) she still has that once puppy inside of her. We'd like to replicate the life she had of love with love. Sugar would do well with older children, the rescue Mom really feels another sweet dog would be significant as Sugar really enjoys playing with other dogs (Meet and Greets can be arranged). And Sugar someone who is home more. That's what her Daddy gave her. A fenced-in yard to run in and a couch to cuddle on would complete this last wish. If you are in the local Louisville area we'd love to talk to you about Sugar. If you don't know about this marvelous breed, they are loving, loyal, intelligent and once you have one - just like potato chips - you'll want another! Sugar is looking for her forever family. Perhaps YOU are the missing piece of Sugar's life.

COLOR: Brown and white SECURE, VISIBLE FENCED-IN YARD REQUIRED ADOPTION FEE: $150 NO OUT-OF-STATE ADOPTIONS LOCAL LOUISVILLE, KENTUCKY AREA ONLY Tia is super friendly and loves attention. She gets along well with cats. She does well in a crate for short periods of time, and walks well on a leash. Tia is well-behaved in the house. She is housebroken and loves to sleep on the couch. She is food-oriented, so needs to be contained around food. This baby has been neglected, but is a quick learner. She needs a secure, visible fenced-in yard with some supervision until she gets used to her situation, as she is an escape artist. But she does not bark excessively and does not dig in the yard. Tia is scheduled to be spayed soon, but has already had all her shots, has been wormed, has had flea preventative, and is microchipped. If you believe you could give this young lady a good home filled with lots of love, please fill out a no-obligation dog adoption application and return it to Shamrock Pet Foundation as directed at the top of the application form.

Winnie Boxer/German Shepard Mix Approximately one year or less 55 pounds Good with other Dogs Needs Fenced in Yard Needs someone who is home more Louisville/Lower Indiana Adoptions Adoption Fee: $150.00 Tired of the same old shows on T.V.? Looking for fun and adventure? Forget the television because all the entertainment you want is looking at you with beautiful brown eyes. Winnie is a doll baby and Winnie so wants to be someone's fur baby. Winnie has such a need to be with her humans but she also would do great with another dog around her size to play with. Winnie is young and energetic so having a walking partner, someone who would toss a ball -someone who is home more would be a prayer answered for Winne. So after Winnie plays, entertains you, humors you with her antics her next favorite thing? Well of course it's to snuggle with you. We think whoever invented the word "Spooning," with your dog had Winnie in mind. She is the perfect size. In fact with training and patience we think Winnie would make a wonderful addition to a great family. Winnie does great with kids!!! And they do great with her. Over 7 would be great!! If you're looking for loyalty, love, and a lovely face to look into Winnie is the one for you!!
