Shamrock is restarting his life. He was found downtown in a box and was practically skin and bones. Since he's been in foster care, he's gained weight and although he's a low-energy boy, he loves to play and even do zoomies around the house. Then he'll ask to come up on the couch for a snuggle.
He really gets energetic when his foster mom comes home from work, wagging his entire body and giving little kisses. And he's especially happy if he sees a new toy to play tug-o-war with. Speaking of playing, he loves his female chihuahua housemate and tries to get her to play all the time.
Shamrock is crate and house trained, and freely roams his apartment when his mom is away with no problems. He has been diagnosed with diabetes, which is managed with easy-to-give daily insulin shots that he takes like a trooper. He does enjoy car rides and looking out the window as the world goes by.
A home with a small yard where Shamrock could snooze and sunbathe would be a bonus. But he'll welcome any home where he can get the love and care he wants and needs. Come meet this special boy!
