NAME: Elijah Chariot. BREED: German Shepherd Dog. GENDER: Male, neutered. DOB/AGE: 06/23/2018 … 3.5 years old. WEIGHT: 108 lbs. COLOR: White. HOUSEBROKEN: Yes. GOOD WITH OLDER CHILDREN (5 years old and up). NOT GOOD WITH CATS. LOCAL LOUISVILLE AREA ADOPTIONS / --includes Jeffersonville, Clarksville, New Albany in Indiana. ADOPTION FEE: $400 plus 6% Sales Tax. / / / / / DESCRIPTION: I think someone may be looking for me because I am planning to look for a new home. My daddy and mommy are having some health issues and they asked me if I would like to find a warm, loving home with someone that would provide as much love and care they have given me. I was gravely concerned at first, but after some thought, it would add a new adventure to my life. As you can see, I am a beautiful white German Shepherd and my birth date is July 12, 2018. I am a neutered male, and although I am a mere 108 lbs., I am gentle around the house and never disturb my surroundings even when my parents are away. But that’s ok, I am pleased to have such a good life. My favorite toys are the ones that make noise as that is the way I express my happiness. To bring to light what a lover I am, I fathered three little ones with my beautiful Delilah when I was only 9 months old. Of course, she fed the pups but she loved to sprawl on the couch. So I became the attentive father and nudged and played with them. When they were old enough, they said goodbye and are living the life with other families who adore them. Sure proud of myself, I must say. We have family visitors periodically with their children and I enjoy the love and attention showered on me as we socialize. I welcome visitors into our home as I am accepting of everyone because I am a gentleman. My parents trust me when left “Home Alone,” not like that kid in the movies, and I do enjoy watching TV at times. I have a spirit of happiness, love, devotion, gentleness yet stately, and I actively seek love and affection and enjoy just chilling out with my family. If you give me a treat I will sit, lay, turn over and give you "five." It would work well for me to be a loner or have another companion, preferably a lady like my Delilah. Are you the family who can share your love with me?

He is up to date on vaccines, heartworm negative, neutered and microchipped. He would be perfect for someone that loves to go on walks and needs a partner that is strong enough to hang on!

NAME: Max BREED: Lab/Lab Mix WEIGHT: Approximately 90 pounds AGE: 9 years old Good with most Dogs Not good with children Has been around cats Would be great for someone who is home more Louisville, Ky/Lower Indiana Adoptions Adoption Fee: T.B.D. DESCRIPTION: Max's world was turned upside down when he recently lost his owner. Max was very loved but now has nowhere to go. He is currently in a room to keep him safe but he is confused; sad, and looking for his Dad to return. His Dad really loved Max. Max is a sweet, quiet boy. Max doesn't ask a lot and he doesn't require a lot. Just some loving and one-on-one time would mean the world to him. Max readily admits he needs to slim down a bit and it would be so awesome if Max could be with someone who likes to take leisurely walks. We think with some regular exercise Max can go back to his svelte self. His heart? Now that's a bit of a different story. But with the right family who is eager to love -- well, it would be wonderful for Max to feel the love that he is desperately missing. At this point a foster; foster-to-adopt or adopter is getting pretty critical. If you feel drawn to Max let's explore that more!

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 DESCRIPTION: 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 »
NAME: Shaw BREED: Lab/Pinscher Mix GENDER: Female, spayed AGE: 8 years old WEIGHT: Approx. 45 pounds WOULD DO GREAT AS ONLY PET OR SWEET DOG OLDER CHILDREN BACK YARD VISIBLE FENCE. LOCAL LOUISVILLE AREA ADOPTIONS / --includes Jeffersonville, Clarksville, New Albany in Indiana. ADOPTION FEE: TBD. DESCRIPTION: 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 »
NAME: Storm SPECIAL NEEDS DOG (see below) BREED: German Shep/Mix GENDER: Female, spayed AGE: 3 Years Old WEIGHT: Approx. 55 pounds Good with Children over 6 Needs another sweet dog in home Loving VISIBLE ABOVE-GROUND FENCE REQUIRED LOCAL LOUISVILLE AREA ADOPTIONS / --includes Jeffersonville, Clarksville, New Albany in Indiana ADOPTION FEE: $150.00 plus 6% Sales Tax -- DESCRIPTION: Storm has overcome some tough times in life, but when a wonderful woman and her beautiful family stepped in, the clouds seemed to disappear. No more looking from the outside in. For the first time in a very long time Storm has literally come in from the rain and the elements. Storm is now enjoying the freedom of running and walking without constraints. No doubt Storm is absolutely beautiful. More importantly, Storm's rescue family brought back trust, love and light. What a difference love makes! Storm's once dull coat shines and glistens. It's amazing what love can do. Those once hopeless but hopeful eyes now shine brightly. And Storm? Well she feels as blessed for the family who saved her as they do with her presence. Storm would do well with children over 6 and would thrive with another sweet dog. Storm had been alone day in and out for so long that we feel she would thrive with another canine buddy to hang with. We promise it won't take away from the never ending love that Stormy has to give. Gray skies are sure to clear up when you adopt Storm and we promise that YOU will definitely put on a happy face. PLEASE NOTE: Storm is a special needs dog. We recently learned that she has megaesophagus and needs a special diet and/or care with feeding. cc: 10/21/2020 View full description »
