Angel was found wandering the streets and taken to a local shelter, where she was adopted over a year ago. Due to her own health issues, the owner has asked us to help find a good home for this little girl.

A vet check determined that Angel is a special needs dog. She is deaf and has a heart condition, and now that she is on special food and medicines, she has lost some weight and has become very perky. She is a constant food seeker and beggar, so will have to be closely monitored to keep her weight down. She dearly loves chicken, so this could be a good training tool. She has recently had some of her bad teeth extracted so can now eat softened kibble and semi-hard treats. She is very vocal and prances around like a puppy to let you know she's ready to eat breakfast or dinner.

Although she would prefer to have you all to herself, Angel is good with other dogs her size. She is slowly learning how to play with her foster sisters and brother. She loves to roll up burrito-style in a blanket in her crate, but her favorite place is on or under a blanket in your lap.

She is not a constant barker, but will bark when she wants inside, when she wants to be fed, and a little if she gets excited when playing.

Angel is housebroken to potty pads on the bathroom floor or near an exit. She will also walk from you to the door and back if she has to go outside. She definitely prefers to be indoors rather than outdoors, and will bark to let you know she wants back in the house...but she will use a doggie door when she wants to go outside and lay in the sun!

She is crate-trained at night but prefers to be loose in the house. She travels well in a crate in the car. She wants to be with you wherever you go. She perks up when you pull out the leash and now that she has lost a few pounds, she loves to go for walks. She also loves to go shopping with you, if you put a pad or blanket in the cart so it doesn't hurt her feet.

Consistency is a must in order to gain her trust. Since she is deaf, she relies on hand signals. If you have enough room in your heart to give this little lady lots of love in her remaining years, please contact us at http://shamrockpets.com/, go to the drop-down on the “adoptions” tab and follow the directions to submit an adoption application. She is fully vetted, has had all vaccinations and her rabies shot, and is microchipped.

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 a 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!!

AND THEY’RE OFF ! ! !

We’re celebrating Derby early this year. Our pick is Princess Julep. Yes…named after a favorite known only to the Kentucky Derby, our girl Julep is equally as unique. She’s a true Derby princess, born on Derby Day.

Julep is currently 40 lbs. and 1½ years old. She is an AKC-registered purebred English bulldog. Her family loves her very much; however, they are away most weekends with teenage things (competitive sports teams) and Julep – being the spoiled girl she is – is suffering.

Julep would do well in a home with kids over 12 years of age. That’s all she has known. She is a bed-sleeping, potty-trained, free-roam girl. No worries with her. She is an only child (no dogs/cats). Potential adopters will need to do some research on her breed so you’ll understand why it is best that she is the only dog in the family.

Currently she is trained to “Invisible Fence" brand underground fencing. If you have an underground fence it must be “Invisible Fence” brand (no charging a collar every night).

We hope to make her transition as smooth as possible. If you are interested in adopting her, start researching now. Breed knowledge is a strict requirement. She’s more than a gorgeous face.

Shamrock Foundation will be accepting applications on behalf of her family FOR 10 DAYS ONLY. Upon receipt of an application from an adopter that meets the family’s criteria, a meet-and-greet will be arranged along with a home visit. If you think you could provide a suitable home for this gorgeous young lady, log onto our website at http://shamrockpets.com/ and click on the ADOPTION tab, download an adoption application, and follow the instructions to submit your application.

No, she did not attend the University of Georgia and is not a relative to their English Bulldog mascot, UGA. She is microchipped and up-to-date on all vaccinations. Medical records are available.

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!

"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.

Sugar is a very lovable lap dog. Rubbing his belly puts him in ecstasy! He loves short walks and just laying around the house. He is a designer breed. He also adores his half-brother, Spice, and you rarely see one without the other.

Spice is another designer breed, frequently referred to as a “Shih-Tzu Teddy Bear.” He was born in Corydon, Indiana. He is a very sweet soul with the intelligence of a little Einstein. He loves to communicate. He also loves to cuddle and will make baby sounds when you hold him close and hug him. He looks up to his half-brother, Sugar, and they are inseparable!

Sugar and Spice have been together all their lives. They want you to know how bonded they are, how much they love each other, and that they would really, really, really like to go to their new forever home together.

Are your home and your heart big enough for these two sweet, charming little boys? If they are, please go to the drop-down menu on the “adoption” tab on our website and follow the instructions to download and submit your application. Once we receive your application, one of our volunteers will be in touch with you.

All Shamrock dogs have been vetted, are up-to-date on immunizations and rabies shots, have had a heartworm and fecal check, and have been microchipped.
