 . Dottie .
 . Dottie .  . Dottie .
  • Dachshund
  • Spayed/Neutered
Dottie the hottie is the sweetest most loving girl to everyone she meets. She's a typical Dachshund who likes to let everyone know her daily business. For having short legs she is ironically a great little hunter of small things. Dottie maybe categorized as a senior by physical age but she sure doesn't show it. We like to think of her as a tweener at heart! Dottie is house trained but needs time to get into a routine. If you expect doggie door proficiency well the short legs are her nemesis in this department. Dottie has had full senior lab work and a dental and is ready to join your family!

  • Special NeedsPrefers home without cats
***SPECIAL NEEDS, COMES WITH WHEELS*** Cameron is a Chihuahua Doxie mix or as we like to call him part Lemur part Merman. Cameron came to Lionel's Legacy as one of our younger seniors but he needed a bit of help getting back in shape. Cameron was unable to walk when we picked him up from the shelter but he is steadily gaining strength and use of his back legs again. Cameron is great in his wheels and flies across slick floors faster than most dogs can run! Cameron is a love bug and his favorite thing is being cradled like a baby. He is good with other dogs, he likes to sass them at first just let to them know small can still be mighty. Cameron wears a belly band as a champ as he's also regaining control of his bladder. He may be a bit SPECIAL NEEDS but to be honest he's one of the easiest dogs ever!

My name is Cassie and I came from a hoarding case. I'm so sweet and loving but initially timid and shy, I'm really looking for someone to help me get over that. Food and chin scratches will entice me to lean in and fully commit to love! I am currently being treated for a seizure and thyroid condition but doing great! They think once I'm feeling better my medications can be re-evaluated. The good news is that I have a chance now, I never thought I'd have that. So please don't be afraid of my needs, I'm very special I promise!

 . Happy .  . Happy .  . Happy .
  • Spaniel, Terrier
  • Spayed/Neutered
Happy was given her name for the simplest reason possible, justly at her face! Happy currently lives with other dogs but she would be just as content being numero uno. Happy is smart, she is a terrier blend and she is also potty trained. Happy loves to go swimming and ride on boats, she even comes with her own life vest! Because Happy was a bit overweight before coming to us she does have a weakened trachea so we use a harness while walking and that really seems to help. Keeping her weight managed has made a huge difference and she can keep up with the others without any issues! Fill out an application today to learn more about our sweet and sassy girl!

  • Chihuahua
  • Spayed/Neutered
  • Prefers home without dogs
Shifty is 5 lbs of absolute chihuahuaness! Shifty recently had a dental and many teeth removed, while under we snapped some X-rays and learned that he has "rubber jaw" like many small dogs who don't get the dental care they need early on. What does this mean, not a whole lot other than his tongue hangs out and his bottom jaw has receded a bit but he still adores food and doesn't seem to having any problems making sure he gets every morsel down. Shifty is good with other dogs, he uses his big Chi voice on occasion to let the bigger dogs know to give him space if they're getting a bit young and crazy for his likings.

Sarah came to us from our local San Diego county shelter and had a very large wound on her back that seemed to wrap around her abdomen.
