 . Sam .  . Sam .  . Sam .
  • Labrador Retriever
Sam is a Louisiana transplant thanks to all of the horrible hurricanes that hit our country this year. He is a Labrador retriever weighing at about 70 lbs. and is 6-7 years young. After living many years in a kennel he has been acclimating to a home life with cats, dogs and people. He likes to a have a quiet space to go to in his foster home but has learned to really enjoy socializing and playing with others. Sam is a very sweet boy and a little on the shy side so he'd do great with a buddy (cat or dog) to show him the ropes in a new home. Females are his favorite, so far its the girlies who have showed him around his new home in San Diego. He's already been to the beach, Liberty Station and Balboa Park. He loves exploring and would appreciate a nice sized yard. So what do you think? He's a hunk isn't he? Those golden eyes just mesmerize you! Sam is neutered, prefers not to be crated after living many years in a dog run and is house trained. He would be fine with kids but do best with older children who have a better understanding of monitoring sound and activity levels around him.

I may be from Louisiana but that doesn't mean I don't know how to be a Cali gal! I was recently rescued from a Louisiana shelter to make room for the survivors of Hurricane Harvey and Irma. I kind of lucked out because I am Heart worm positive and undergoing treatment which the doc thinks I have a great prognosis due to my stellar X-rays. I'm ready to join a family now or when I'm done with treatment but Lionel's Legacy will take care of it until I'm a-ok! I love my friends and my daily trips to the dog park and beach so sign me up if you're looking for a walking buddy! I may be 8-9 years of age but I have a world left to explore and enjoy so I'm not going to waste it!

She goes for daily walks with other young and old canines and likes to play in the evening when everyone is feeling frisky.

Jane is a sweet gal and has had a rough go of it. You see she has the curse of the fair skinned pittie belly. Jane has had an incredible recovery, almost miraculous! When she came to us from OC shelter we weren't sure if we'd be able to help her. Her belly was covered with skin cancer, likely from too much lounging in the sun. Fortunately, the skin cancer was topical and was removed thanks to a 2 step surgical procedure from our incredible vets at Newport Beach Vet. Jane is great with big dogs, we don't really know how she is with little dogs and cats. Of course Jane is great with people, she's a pittie! Let us know if you'd to have this big old love bug join you on the couch, bed, for dinner and breakfast, She's available and interested!
