Shamrock's Story...
Hi, my name is Shamrock! I am an adorable and distinguished older gentleman. I will be hitting my 9th birthday soon, but don’t let my age fool you. I still have some puppy energy inside of me. Ideally, I would love a home with lots of space to run around, perhaps a farm or a home with a very large fenced in yard. Before coming to rescue, I lived with one family my whole life. Sadly, my owner became very ill and passed away. Since I am older and have only ever lived in one home, I am a bit stuck in my ways. The transition into foster care has left me with a bit of anxiety, which causes me to whine a bit and to be a tad grouchy at time. But hey, it’s hard making life changes at my age! I am used to being the only dog, but I am adjusting to life in a home with other doggie friends. My perfect home would have no other dogs though, so my new family can devote all of their time to me – I am so worth it. I am house-trained, micro-chipped, neutered and utd on shots. I adore children, and my foster mom says I am very gentle with them. I love the 10 yr old little boy in my foster home. Of course like any good dog, I sit outside his door while he sleeps to protect him. I love to be around people and follow my foster mom around the house. I do want to be your best friend of course ;) My foster mom also says that once I feel comfy, I tend to think I am a lap dog and have no idea just how large I actually am! Do I sound like I could be perfect for you? I am an older guy and due to my life circumstances I come with some baggage (who doesn’t?) but I promise to love and adore you all throughout my golden years! Please only send in applications if you are within 2 hour driving distance of Philadelphia, PA.

Why Adoption is a Great Option

Shamrock, a Essington Irish Setter dog was adopted! Here's how you can benefit by looking at adoption as an option to buying a Irish Setter for sale in Essington, or seeking a Irish Setter dog from a breeder in Essington.

  1. Rescues and shelter volunteers in Essington already know the personality and tendencies of their pets. This means they can match you with the right pet. That will makes it much easier transition to owning a pet for yourself and your new pet.
  2. On average adoption fees are much less than you'd pay a Essington breeder, or pet store. Plus most often rescue pets have already been to the veterinarian for a check-up, had a round of vaccinations, and are spayed or neutered. That is a lot of savings!
  3. You will become a hero, and give a needy dog or cat a loving home. In fact, there are even Irish Setter breeders who help with Irish Setter rescue. One puppy or kitten adopted in Essington paves the way for another one to be saved.
