Bitty loves to play with the big dog in her foster home. She plays with the stuffed animals and holds her own playing tug-o-war with the other dog. Bitty is very smart--crate trained and well on her way to house trained. Smart! Bitty knows to leave the elderly dog in the house alone--AGAIN SMART! Bitty gnaws on bones and likes to toss them in the air for entertainment. Bitty sleeps peacefully in her crate and is a quiet dog--of course horsing around with another dog does not count. Occasionally Bitty does like to have her belly rubbed especially as she settles in for family time. Bitty would be a great addition for any family!

  • Golden Retriever
  • Housebroken
  • Vaccinations up to date

NAME: Buddy BREED: Golden Retriever GENDER: Male, scheduled to be neutered DOB/AGE: Senior dog, maybe 7 years old WEIGHT: 73 lbs. COLOR: Blonde HOUSEBROKEN GOOD WITH CHILDREN AND DOGS GOOD WITH OUTDOOR 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: Buddy is a large (70 lbs.), lightly colored Golden Retriever who wandered into our yard and made himself at home. After some searching, we learned that his owner had a stroke and can no longer care for him. Buddy was a little on the skinny side but he is eating well and has bulked up a little. He is very gentle and loves children and other dogs. He is okay with the outdoor cats but growls at them when they get near his food bowl. We're not sure about indoor cats. He has been friendly to everyone he has met. He looks like an old dog, but acts like a young dog. Buddy loves to ride in the car but gets so excited about it he needs to be slightly restrained for long rides. He likes playing fetch with a stick, ball or a toy. He also loves to play tug-of-war. He appears to have had some obedience training. He likes to take walks, but he does pull on the leash and he is very strong. He perked up after a bath and a good brushing! He loves to be brushed. He has lots of energy when playing, but is basically a calm and mellow dog. He is very inquisitive. He has two barks…low and loud when warning someone is coming, or higher pitched when he wants some attention. Buddy loves lots of attention. He will pull every toy out of his toybox to entice you to play with him. He is very toy-motivated, but NOT treat-motivated. He is comfortable outdoors if there is enough stimulation for him, but he prefers to be indoors out of the rain and heat. His favorite place to lay is at your feet. He seems to have a little separation anxiety. He is terrified of thunder and tries to get in your lap when he hears loud thunder booms or gun shots. But most of the time he is happy on the floor, touching you. He has never tried to get on the furniture. He does know how to use a doggy door. If you are interested in adding Buddy 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.

  • Yellow Labrador Retriever

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.

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 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!

  • German Shepherd Dog
  • Spayed/Neutered

  • Prefers home without cats

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: Mystic BREED: Chihuahua GENDER: Male, neutered AGE: 3 Years Old WEIGHT: 11 Pounds Extremely Affectionate Needs to be Only Dog Children over 15 Above ground fence (Preferably Private -He is a climber) Local Louisville, Ky Adoptions Only Adoption Fee: $150.00 plus 6% Sales Tax There's something kinda of magical about Mystic (hence his name). Mystic has a way of looking in your eyes and you feel like he's looking into your soul. We thought about getting him a little colorful turban and a crystal ball to look into the future. In looking ahead to Mystic's own hopeful future we see what Mystic wants!! Mystic wants and needs someone who is home more; patient, understanding and consistent. Mystic does very well with dogs his size and cats so another docile dog living in the home (As Mystic does like to be head Papa Dog) would be a plus. Feisty, and loving; fearless and fabulous Did we mention quite handsome? Mystic we believe will continue to blossom with a gardener of souls. He'd make such a delightful addition!

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.

Zorro Siberian Huskey Approximately 1 year old 45-50 pounds Good with older Children Good with Docile Dogs Visible Above Ground Fence Necessary Louisville Local Adoptions* Adoption Fee: $225.00 plus 6% Sales Tax They say the "Eyes of a Huskey can tell a million stories." It's impossible to walk past Zorro and not do a double take. Those ocean blue eyes will grab your attention, along with your heart! The mask (hence the name Zorro) well it looks like it was especially designed and fitted to a T for Zorro. Yep Zorro wakes up looking like this every day! . Huskies are an amazing breed. While they have a sometimes independent streak they are exceptionally loyal to those they love. Zorro like most Huskies want to run by nature so a physical above ground fence would be a must. Someone who is active and likes to go for walks and be interactive would be a huge plus for Zorro. Zorro would do best in a home where someone is home more. He had a bit of a tough start in life and really needs to have faith in a new owner. Huskies typically do not like to be penned up or tied up but if you have the time to invest Huskies can be the funniest, and most devoted! Their extremely keen sense and intelligence are amazing. Zorro would do great with some "Paw-sitive," puppy training with owner involvement. Zorro is entertaining, energetic and would do best with older children. Zorro is a majestic young man who likes rides in the car particularly when you drive by and but then stop to buy him his own pup ice cream. . Want to know more about Zorro?
