CLYDE (HANDSOME) Golden Lab Male Approx 7 Years/70 Lbs Needs Above Ground Visible Fence Needs at Least One Sweet Dog in Home Good with older Children Louisville, Ky Local Adoptions* Adoption Fee: $200.00 plus 6% Sales Tax Clyde is so much more than a handsome face. This guy is so full of Grace. His start in life was not easy and quite isolated. He always had love in his heart so learning to love wasn't the hard part. Getting him to trust humans without fear; learning to feel safe, experiencing loving touches and professional training did something wonderful for Clyde. It brought out what everyone knew from the moment they saw those once lonely and fearful eyes. It brought out the essence of Clyde! Clyde is now the man he always wanted to be. He has been with a great trainer and has done fabulous with socialization. Clyde lived with other dogs but didn't know initially that humans could be his family and treasured friends as well. We'd like to see Clyde be with at least one other dog in the home. A visible fenced in yard where he can romp and someone who enjoys walking but also just hanging out. In the process of witnessing a soulful transformation in Clyde we guess you could say he transformed everyone of the kind hearts from the beginning. The ones who made this grateful and beautiful ending possible. *Shamrock is a rescue organization in Louisville, KY.

But one by one his canine family were placed into homes (as life circumstances changed for his owners) and Elijah was suddenly alone. When Elijah came to Shamrock his grief and sadness showed.

Elijah is a quiet gentleman who would do well in a quiet environment and neighborhood where he can be the only dog or having a sweet dog like his once beloved mate...well that would also be a great heart lifter.

Well actually Jaxon does express his joy and happiness every single day with the foster family who embraced him;. Patti rushed him to the emergency room and stayed up for 48 hours and more to make sure he would make it through surgery. The before pictures of Jaxon took our breath away. The neglect absolutely devastating!. Mats upon mats. We had no idea what lay under all that fur. But we quickly learned that Jaxon was underweight; full of every parasite imaginable. His skin from top to bottom was raw. It was determined that Jaxon had suffered a blow to his face. Surgery had to be performed to reconnect his upper lip to his gums. He had small fractured bones in his face. How long had our little boy been in pain; suffering needlessly? But Jaxon says "Just look at me now.!" I'm healed! I'm happy and I'm loving life! For Jaxon it's like he was born again. Every kind touch, encouraging word, toys, fresh air, grass on his feet well and finally seeing and feeling the warm sun on his darling face. Jaxon is taking it all in. And our hearts could not be more full. Jaxon has done fabulous with his Foster Family's dogs, kids. Another dog would be wonderful; someone who is home more huge but most importantly someone who will continue to love Jaxon as he deserves. What will you get in return? A most forgiving delightful boy who somehow had the Grace and drive to survive and thrive. Inquiries: firstname.lastname@example.org cc: 11/07/2022 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* / 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.
