We knew that Winky would be popular, since she loves cats (no, not for breakfast!), so it was no surprise when we got several lovely applications to adopt her. Alicia and her kids were the lucky ones, however, who got to welcome her into their home where she now happily resides alongside her two feline sisters. Thank you to Bella & family for fostering Winky and to Nat for sponsoring her. Happy furrytail ending, Winkayda! Heeeeellllloooo petals. How are you Darlings? Winka
When Sky came to us almost a year and a half ago, we knew that some work would be required. The pound passed on the information from his previous owners that Sky could jump 6 foot fences, didn't get along with other dogs and didn't take kindly to strangers. But you know we like a challenge, right? It wasn't an easy road but, with a combined effort of foster carers, kennels and trainers, we saw Sky making baby step after baby step. He slowly but surely let down his guard an
Have you guys noticed just how many foster-failures (or what we like to think of as foster-successes!) we facilitate here at SHAMROQ? Roughly half of all our dogs are adopted by their foster families. In fact, just amongst the homes of three admins on this page, we can count at least TEN foster-failures that we ourselves have happily succumbed to over the years! When we sent Camilla into the capable hands of Michelle & Damion for foster care, we admit we hoped that she'd st
When Ben & Hayley put up their hands to foster Kobe to save his bacon after he found himself at risk in a regional pound, we're not sure that they were looking to add a dog to the family permanently. Their household was already full with Husky x Malamute, Nahla and her tiny 'sisters', Tia & Div (Maltese x Toy Poodle and Toy Poodle respectively). But while Nahla enjoys urban sledding, Tia & Diva weren't exactly cut out for partnering up with her in front of the scooter! Kob
Beautiful Indie waited patiently for her new family to find her. And find her they did! Despite Darren, Shirley and their Malamute boy, Maloo residing in Cairns, they knew that Indie was the one for them. So off she jetsetted to the tropical North to meet her new family. They tell us that she's slotted in seamlessly, following Shirley around the garden and snuggling up with Maloo to snooze. Our gratitude goes to Robert & Lisa for fostering this lovely lady and to her guar
Who could resist this face? Not Logi's foster carers, Jess & Kerrin, that's for sure! This lucky little girl has well and truly settled in and won them over with her snugglebug manner. We're so stoked that she's staying put. Happpy furrytail ending, Logi!
When Louise & Bruce recently lost their most senior Husky boy, Dante, they were concerned about how their remaining boy, Kodi, might cope with being an only child. After running into another Husky owner at the markets and hearing about SHAMROQ, they got to thinking that maybe fostering would be an ideal way to give Kodi some company. It wasn't long before we were asking them for help with fostering the stunning Myshka, who had been surrendered to a local pound. With her bea
It was no surprise to us that Shady, now Shadow, charmed his foster carers with those crazy eyes of his! Congrats to Josh & Catt on making him a permanent member of their family. Happy furrytail ending, Shadow!
