I always love to see a submission from Terran Bayer from Westway Studio, she is so talented and generous with her time. Terran volunteers photographing homeless dog to help them find homes. All of these senior dogs are adoptable from Lionel’s Legacy.
After adopting Theo, I’m not sure I will ever get a puppy again. There are many reasons to adopt an adult dog including:
* Most are house trained.
* They have outgrown the chewing phase meaning your shoes and your furniture are likely to be safe.
* Their personalities are developed so you can find one that easily matches your lifestyle.
* They have usually mastered simple commands.
*Old souls are the sweetest!
* All dogs from Lionel’s Legacy are up to date on vaccinations and neutered.
Charlie is an adorable and happy go lucky Parsons Russell Terrier mix. He loves everyone and for an older dog has pep in his step. Charlie is approximately 10 years old and would be happy playing with canine and feline friends or going for walks with a human or two. He is incredibly healthy, has had a dental, but is a bit hard of hearing.
He absolutely adores kids! This little boy will make a fantastic first time pet or could very easily join a pack of pups as he’s very easy going. He’s up to date on vaccinations, microchipped, and housetrained.
He even knows how to use a doggy door, he’s such a smart boy!
Cocker Spaniel,Twinkie, is an AMAZING old boy! He just had dental surgery and a cyst removed and is recovering nicely! Twinkie loves everyone as you can see! He also gets along with every dog he meets. He was left at a Los Angeles shelter because they couldn’t care for his surgery. We couldn’t let this boy be put down because of that so we scooped him up and he is getting stronger every day. In fact, his appetite is so ravenous that he tries to eat everyone else’s food too!
He’s currently being fostered in a home with 3 other dogs both big and small and all he wants to do is be your best mate. Twinkie is approximately 12 yrs old and is read to be your new BFF!
Hank is approximately 17 years old and came to us when his owner had required assistance with her own health. Hank had been with her since he was a pup. She has since passed away but Hank is now in our loving care. He is now in a FOREVER FOSTER with a wonderful family who will love and care for him for the rest of his life. He gets to spend his days exploring the yard with his fur friends. Hank is doing so well for his age and acts more like a 13 or 14 year old! Go Hank!
Willie is a Dandie Dinmont Terrier/Terrier Dog estimated age is 6 years 3 months. Although not technically a senior, Willie has considerable life experience. Willie is an OAS survivor! This poor boy has been through the worst of the worst and has come out the other side ready to live life to the fullest. Willie has received extensive rehabilitation including a technique known as “flooding” to help him get over years of neglect and abuse. He’s look for a quite family who will love and cherish this sweet little boy. He adores attention, wants to be your little angel, and will be forever grateful if you add him to your family. He’s good with other dogs and cats but is a bit timid around larger dogs.
He is one smart boy and will show you how ready he is to work for you too. Although he’s come a long way and is good with some children we feel it’s best he go to a home with older kids 14+.
Sweet little old Abuelita is an awesome gal. Formerly known as Shadow, this petite Chow Chow came from the Oceanside Humane Society where they nursed her back to health. Today she is thriving in a foster home with multiple other doggies and has a great time playing and lounging in the sun.
We think Abuelita has no idea of her age (13 years), she seems to think she’s still in her prime. She has some mild stiffness in her back legs but has a great record of health for her age. This girl has character, personality, and spunk. She was named Shadow because she will follow you around all day, but her foster mom calls her Abuelita which means “Little Grandmother.” Just make sure you leave a spot for her on the couch or bed because she loves to cuddle!
King Charles is a beautiful boy who loves everyone. He’s approximately10 years old at the most and a pretty happy go lucky boy! He loves having animal companions and easily fits right into any pack. He loves exploring and going for walks. KC is up to date on vaccines, microchipped, and house trained.
Lucille is quite a hoot! She has been a momma a few times over and is great with everyone. However, she does have a few issues with mobility and ideally needs to be in a single story house where she has easy access to a backyard or gets frequent walks. Lucille was deemed rescue only due to xrays showing Spondylosis and considerable joint degeneration and arthritis. Its not known how her condition became so severe at her age but it appears like she has had it for quite some time. She is one of the happiest girls we’ve ever met and the name Lucy fits her perfectly as she likes to talk to you and get your attention. Lucy will put her paw up at you and then roll over for belly rubs. ALL THIS GIRL WANTS IS TO BE LOVED!!!!!! Contact us today to find out more about this low energy easy going girl. She’s looking for a family who’s going to love her for who she in on the inside. With her adoption comes 2 months supply of any medications. She’s currently on glucosamine,tramadol and truprofen (generic for Rimadyl) which is fairly inexpensive through Costco.
Sweet Sadie is the most wonderful old gal we’ve met. She hasn’t been given much love in hr life by her humans before coming to us but nonetheless she is ever so grateful and incredibly perfect in every way. Oh how we love this well balanced, happy go lucky girl. This beautiful Yellow Lab loves other dogs, is good with cats, and she really loves every human she meets, especially kids! We adore Sadie and will give her the best life she can imagine while waiting for the right furever home to take over. Sadie’s estimated age is 1o years, 3 months.
Lefty is a Corgi who is estimated to be around 8 years old. Lefty recently had her eye removed due to Glaucoma but doesn’t let that get in her way. She’s a frequent visitor at dog beach and loves to hang out with her foster buddies who are all triple her size and weight. Lefty loves to play, be active for a small dog, and would worm her way into your heart very quickly.
Oh my goodness is this girl smart. Kayla is her real name. She was relinquished by her owners to the South Los Angeles shelter. She was an outdoor dog and they said they had no time for her. Kayla is approximately 8 yrs old at the most and loves to go for walks. In fact, an added bonus is that she will keep you fit and healthy. This girl wants to please so badly. She’s fantastic with dogs she has had time to meet appropriately and her foster started training with her on day 1. She knows heal, sit, down already and loves training for cheese whiz on a spoon. Kayla is an active girl who has many typical great German Shepherd qualities. Kayla is under our care and now that shes on a great diet and thyroid meds she is a really balanced and happy girl. Bonkers is around ten years old. He is new to Lionel’s Legacy. Judging by his name, I think this guy has an energetic personality and looking into those eyes, I think he must be about the sweetest guy ever.
