Unlucky St. Patrick's Day dog is hoping to find a forever home and get adopted, in Florida, this March 17.

An unlucky dog, who has been in a rescue shelter for 600 days in Manatee County, Florida, is hoping for some luck of the Irish this St. Patrick’s Day.

On July 5, 2016, Ember (6) was brought to the Manatee County Animals Services. She had been found stray in Bradenton. When she came to the shelter she had been suffering from allergies, she was missing much of her and suffering from dry eyes. She lived in the medical department until her hair and health returned.

Now Ember is in good health and the Manatee County Animals Services are hoping that their "Lucky Pet Promotion" will help them find this friendly pup a forever home. They’re even offering to waive the adoption fees for Ember.

* MCAS is located at 305 25th Street West in Palmetto (dogs and cats) and 1002 Manatee Avenue West in Bradenton (cats only.)
