This Good Samaritan rescued them, and her sister found a home. Chevy has lived the last 6 years in a loving home in the country. She has been around numerous cats and dogs most of her life. Unfortunately, her owner has to move and is looking for a new loving home for Chevy. She would be great in a home with another pet. She is very shy around new people and children but warms up after a little while. She will bark at strangers while wagging her tail but has never shown any sign of aggression. She has no known medical issues. She has not been crated since she was rescued. She would probably do best in a quiet or more rural neighborhood.

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.

SPECIAL NEEDS -- SHE IS DEAF. NAME: Peaches. BREED: Australian Shepherd/Catahoula Leopard Dog Mix. GENDER: Female, spayed. DOB/AGE: 1/30/21 … 8 months old. WEIGHT: COLOR: Red Merle. WORKING ON HOUSEBREAKING. GOOD WITH CHILDREN AND DOGS. Would do best with at least one Canine sibling residing in home. GOOD WITH CATS. VISIBLE ABOVE-GROUND FENCE REQUIRED. LOCAL LOUISVILLE AREA ADOPTIONS / --includes Jeffersonville, Clarksville, New Albany in Indiana. ADOPTION FEE: $150 plus 6% Sales Tax / / / / / Peaches was adopted at nine weeks old from a shelter in Colorado. Her people brought her to Kentucky but when they decided that they couldn’t take care of her they left her at a shelter in Meade County that didn’t have room for her. Luckily, kind volunteers found a foster home for her in Louisville. Maybe her original adopters were intimidated when they found out that Peaches is deaf but her foster Mom reports that this is no problem for Princess Peaches. At approximately eight months old she is healthy and energetic and quick to use her beautiful sky-blue eyes to never miss a trick. Her “ghost eyes” suggest that she is Australian Shepherd but the unique spotting of her peaches-and-cream complexion points to Catahoula Leopard Dog as well. Peaches acquired the title of Princess because she sits in a lawn chair as if it is her throne. As pretty and regal as she is, Peaches is still a puppy. She is very active and will play all day with her foster buddies. She is extremely friendly with dogs, people and even cats. She is also affectionate and loves to cuddle. Because she is young, it may take Peaches awhile to “curb her enthusiasm” but she is eager to please and is learning to respond to hand signals and walk calmly on leash (with the help of her Easy Walk harness which comes with her for free!). Peaches is spayed and fully vaccinated. She loves to be loved and is ever so eager to join her Forever Family.

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 »

Storm German Shep/Mix 3 Years Old 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 -- 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. cc: 10/21/2020 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 gentle but she also puts that 80 pound weight into her puppy play. Small dogs and very small children would not be a good match. Willow 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. Willow is clearly a stunning dog with hypnotic eyes. But 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. Do prepare for a most loyal dedicated Guardian of Your Heart! Write to adoptions@shamrockpets.com Location: Louisville, Ky CC View full description »
