Shanahan – The Irish Collection

Black Male, Age 9, 70 lbs

Well hello my fine friends of the Labrador Retriever Rescue of Fresno.  My name (please imagine this in an Irish accent) is Shanahan and I am available for adoption.  I have been looking for you for so long – it is time to go home.  And as we Irish say “To all the days here and after, may they be filled with fond memories, happiness and laughter, with me by your side.”  Ok, I added the last part, but you understand.

So, there is another saying in the old country that goes “the longest road out is the shortest road home.”  This is just my story, no blarney stone here.  You see, I had a place with humans – I can’t call it a home because there was no love.  I lived in a backyard; very lonely for a gregarious Irishman such as me. Now and again, I would try to follow the road to the end of the rainbow, to try to find the pot of gold known as home.  Many times, I tried, but a good Samaritan would give me a couch for the night, then back to the original owners.  On my last trip, the Samaritan had moved, and I ended up in the shelter, and surprise, no one came for me. That is, until my luck finally changed, and the Legends of Labs and Leprechauns came for me – rescuing me from that shelter in the nick of time.  Now my road is straight and short to my forever home, to be loved, the true gold at the end of any rainbow. 

Just so you know, I’m a big, Irish potato, mellow and sweet, with powder-sugar feet.  I am a true Irish gentleman, good on a leash.  I know sit, down, and off, and am a foot-warmer supreme.  I love everyone, cats, dogs, and people, and am always ready to give free kisses. To sit in the sun on a grassy meadow, my human by my side, is my dream come true.  I am learning to play with toys, I have never had any you see, but finding them quite satisfactory after you, and sitting by your side.  I’m telling you, I am quite the catch.  I bring the Luck of the Irish, combined with the heart of a Labrador.  So, what are you waiting for?  Follow the rainbow and bring me home!

Shanahan is available for adoption through the Labrador Retriever Rescue of Fresno.  He is a very sweet boy who is happy, loving and just wants to please and be loved.  He is housetrained and knows basic commands.  He is a great walking companion, and beyond that, just wants to be with his human friends.   He loves his doggy and kitty friends and people of all shapes and sizes.  If you have room in your heart and your home for this super sweet Irish Gentleman, please fill out an application at our website www.LabRescueFresno.Org.

Thank You,
