CRUELLA 5 Years Old Female Terrier/Lab Mix 60 Pounds Needs Visible Above-Ground Fence Great as Only Dog Louisville Local Adoptions* Adoption Fee: $125.00 plus 6% sales tax Don't let her name fool you!! Outside of that familiar black and white face Cruella is such a very good girl. Cruella would be such a great addition to someone who loves to dote on one dog because coincidentally Cruella loves to dote on humans. She's a great cuddler...Great Cuddler! And... she also loves to play. If you're busy, Squeaky toys also make Cruella extremely happy. Cruella is still an active, happy girl; so someone who likes to take walks and be interactive would be a huge plus. Cruella is good with older children. We suggest no cats. Other dogs would require a meet and greet. She'd be happy being the only cherished child!! Belly Rubs, pats on the head just someone to love her....oh, and a visible fenced area to run in...well, that would be a match made in Heaven for Cruella! The only thing missing is YOU! If you are interested in adding Cruella to your family, visit our website at shamrockpets.com, click on the ADOPTIONS tab, and follow the directions to download and submit your adoption application.

NAME: Elijah Chariot. BREED: German Shepherd Dog. GENDER: Male, neutered. DOB/AGE: 07/12/2018 … 3.5 years old. WEIGHT: 125 lbs. COLOR: White. HOUSEBROKEN: Yes. GOOD WITH OLDER CHILDREN. NOT GOOD WITH CATS. WOULD DO BEST AS THE ONLY DOG IN THE HOME. VISIBLE ABOVE-GROUND FENCE RECOMMENDED. LOCAL LOUISVILLE AREA ADOPTIONS* / --includes Jeffersonville, Clarksville, New Albany in Indiana. ADOPTION FEE: $200.00 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?

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* / ADOPTION FEE: $125.00 plus 6% Sales Tax Our dogs are heartworm tested/neutered/DHPP/rabies /MIcrochipped/Fecal/Worming) DESCRIPTION: Note from the Foster Mom: BEAUTIFUL NECO 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.

Yes Skye loves to communicate her thoughts and feelings through her own Doggy Dialogue. And right now Skye has a lot to convey. The most important thing Skye would like to express is how much she'd love to find that forever wonderful home where she can finally plant her feet as well as her heart. Skye is a loving little girl with particularly striking ears and a darling face. If you're looking for a furry family member who loves to be loved Skye is your girl! Skye has lived with other dogs and if they are sweet and docile it could be a great match. (Meet and Greets can be arranged). We guess the best adjective for Skye would be DEVOTION.
