A nose for talent

Here at LBR, we've got some pretty darned talented boxers. I know a lot of you noticed a very creative egg-hider on our Easter post on Sunday.

This is Shamrock! He got his name because he was rescued on St. Patrick's Day. But his foster momma almost named him Bacon instead. Wanna know why? Well, this is the picture we were first sent of him!

BOL! Isn't he handsome?? We were told that his favorite trick is to balance stuff on his nose. He's really good at it, and he seems to like it too -- or maybe just like the nummy treats he gets to eat afterward! Well, we can't let a trick like that go to waste at LBR. We started balancing everything we could find on poor Shamrock's nose.

We used him to welcome in the spring...

He showed off his trick at one of our pet fairs...

We used him to advertise for our big Roses for Rescue sale coming up....

Yup, this boy's talent puts everyone else in the shade!

 But guess WHAT?! Shamrock did another balancing act too, and balanced his way straight into his foster momma's heart! She decided that she couldn't let a talented guy like this leave the LBR family. So LBR foster Shamrock is now LBR alum Shamrock. And he's happy as can be about it!

Congrrats on your new furever home, Shamrock! I can't wait to see your pawsome trick for years to come!


  1. Great pictures and great treats...

    Have a super day. We're watching out the front window for you to arrive for the Toooona Buffet.

  2. Hehehe those pictures were GREAT! Congrats Shamrock!

  3. Wow he is talented and I can't believe he didn't eat the treats instead of balance them!! I am glad he found his forever home, before the talent agency heard about him.
