Emma and Ruby Coonhound Sisters (Bonded Pair/Adopt as Pair) About 4 years old 50 pounds VISIBLE ABOVE-GROUND FENCE REQUIRED LOCAL LOUISVILLE AREA ADOPTIONS / --includes Jeffersonville, Clarksville, New Albany in Indiana $300.00 plus 6% Tax for Adoption Fee/For Pair -- "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 lives. 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! ♥ The only thing better than this amazing picture of these darling sisters is that last picture we can't wait to post. The day they find their forever home! Ruby and Emma are approximately 4 years old around 58 pounds. They've done amazingly well with the other dogs and they are just wonderful with humans. Love kept these two sisters together and maybe that hope and prayer of a forever family is what kept them going. ♥ ♥ To adopt write to: email@example.com (Louisville, Ky Local) cc 08/0`/2019 View full description »

This handsome young fellow had been living in a drainage ditch literally less than 10 feet from I-65. So many folks worried about his safety. Highway wanted someone to save him but he didn't know who he could trust. Thank goodness for the folks who didn't give up. Although he seemed elusive and camoflogued in the grasses, that day Highway was caught everyone gave out a big sigh of relief. The biggest sigh came from little Highway! We believe Highway had Angels in his corner but we've got to say this boy is an Angel himself. He's quiet, he's loving and he's the perfect size to cuddle with. Highway says the only time he wants to be on the road again is when he's traveling safe in the car with his big hearted foster Moma driving him to his new and forever home. cc: 5/17/2021 View full description »

NAME: Neco BREED: Pit Bull GENDER: Female, spayed DOB/AGE: 6/1/14 … 7 years old WEIGHT: Approximately 60 lbs. COLOR: Black HOUSEBROKEN GOOD WITH CHILDREN AND DOGS UNSURE ABOUT CATS VISIBLE ABOVE-GROUND FENCE REQUIRED LOCAL LOUISVILLE AREA ADOPTIONS / --includes Jeffersonville, Clarksville, New Albany in Indiana ADOPTION FEE: $200 plus 6% Sales Tax Note from the Foster Mom: So this black beauty right here has had my heart for a while now…well, ever since I saved her. This is Neco, and she lived a pretty bad life. She was tied to a dog house on a 3’ long chain for 7 years, then dumped in a rural county. I got the call and immediately dropped everything to go get her to prevent her from being killed as she was running farm land. Upon taking her to the vet for regular vaccines it was found that she also had heartworms. So I crated and fundraiser and raised the money for her treatments, which she has completed. She is now heartworm negative, current on vaccines, microchipped and weighs roughly 60 lbs. Despite the life this girl has lived, she continues to shine and is very affectionate and literally hangs on your every word and move. She is so sweet and loving and makes a point every day to give me hugs. She never meets a stranger and greets everyone with kisses and a wagging tail. She is fully housebroken and loves everyone…and let’s not leave out treats, because those are her favorite! Sure, I could keep her and know she would always be safe here, but that would be very selfish of me because I want her to have the family she should have had to begin with. She deserves to have a couch to lay on and a human too snuggle with in bed at night, and I cannot give her that in my home. I will be picky in placing her, as I want to know she will never end up in the situation she was previously in. A FENCED-IN YARD IS A MUST! If you’d like to meet Neco and see for yourself just how sweet she is, send in an application. Visit our website at shamrockpets.com, click on the ADOPTIONS tab, and follow the directions to download and submit your adoption application. All Shamrock dogs have been vetted, microchipped, heartworm tested, and are up to date on all immunizations and rabies shots. 06/01/21 – kv View full description »
SHAW LAB/PINSCHER MIX 8 YEARS OLD APPROXIMATELY 45 POUNDS WOULD DO GREAT AS ONLY PET OR SWEET DOG OLDER CHILDREN BACKED YARD VISIBLE FENCE LOUISVILLE AREA ADOPTIONS ADOPTION FEE:TBD Shaw - a.k.a. “Shaw Bear,” “Baby Girl” and “Boo Boo.” This beauty is a black and tan cutest ears ever mix. Seemingly a Doberman Pinscher mix, medium stature, approximately 8-9 years old and possesses the most unique and lovable personality. She loves to be involved with whatever you’re doing, whether it’s walking in the park, dancing in the kitchen or escorting you to the restroom. Though she is a homebody, Shaw also loves to go on hikes and field trips to the store. When you’re gone, she will keep the bed warm and the house safe. She loves to bark and pounce when she thinks you’re playing. Her alone time is also very valuable to her, randomly opting for the couch instead of snuggling in bed and vice-versa. She sits and lays...but only when treats are involved. She’s not great at fetch but loves to chase toys. Though a veteran vermin hunter and mailman terrorizer, she is incredibly cuddly, good at listening, wonderful at walking and leans into hugs. She was a rescue dog at the age of two, found with methamphetamine in her system, multiple wounds, some of which has left her mildly scarred in and out and a nervous disposition towards humans. With a loving home, she has learned to love and trust again and has molded into the rightfully spoiled pet that she is now. The lasting effects include, nervousness towards cars that approach her from behind, very loud sounds (fireworks and serious storms), telling her “No” at times will cause her to cower and pee, as well as any sort of confrontation or aggressive behavior. Shaw will thrive in a high energy household where she can be pampered with affection but also play hard with her human(s). She really does love being the center of attention, so a home with no other pets or children is advised. You can guarantee that if Shaw becomes your dog she will be loving and faithful almost to a fault. I cannot put into words how amazing this dog is. She’s got a million adorable quirks and the goofiest mannerisms. We, her current family, have loved her from the moment she joined us and we will continue to even though she has to find a new family to love. With a new baby in our lives, Shaw has become confused, unpredictable and even a little sad because she doesn’t understand why she has to share us. With heavy but hopeful hearts, it is incredibly important to us that she finds a forever home with people who will keep her until her last days, holding her paw in the end if need be because that is what she deserves. cc: 02/12/2021 View full description »

We would love someone who understands and has done their homework on this wonderful breed. We want Willow's next placement to be her happily forever after. Willow has been living with an amazing family with loving children and other dogs. We will NOT adopt Willow out as an only dog because this baby and this breed in particular thrive with the right canine sibling. Willow is an extremely gentle and sweet baby. She loves to be loved on and she loves to play and loves when she is cuddled. Willow needs someone who is patient and understanding, as Willow is still apprehensive and timid. Willow needs someone who will continue to build her confidence. Willow is amazing just the way she is, but we feel as she has come out of her shell with great love that her future potential is boundless. Be prepared for hair! This magnificent breed should not be shaved down and Willow will require regular brushing and grooming. Don't expect Willow to guard your farm animals, but do prepare for a most loyal dedicated Guardian of Your Heart! CC: 05/31/2021 View full description »
