Alfie: Chihuahua Dog estimated age is 11 years 5 months

Little Alfie is bonded with Grandpa. Alfie is a girl....

Have yourself a double shot of CH[a]I and adopt this bonded duo! They are each about 10.5 years old- just ripe in chihuahua years.
Annie: Catahoula Leopard Dog Dog estimated age is 13 years 4 months

Annie Banany is sweet natured, easy going, enjoys the presence of people and other dogs, but is more inclined to burrow in a comfy bed at your feet than snuggle. Annie is a bit of a celebrity these days after being featured in the San Diego Pets Magazine! Annie is looking for a quiet low key place to hang out. She's not for you adventurous rugged mountaineers, no, Annie is for those movie buffs who enjoy a good book on the couch with their popcorn. Annie has severe arthritis, for which she requires medication, she also must live in a one story home, as stairs are too much for her. But despite this, she can go for short walks and loves to sniff! Annie is 12 years old and approximately 40-45 lbs. Annie is housebroken and learns a routine very well. She can be left home alone while you go to work.
Annie II: German Shepherd Dog Dog estimated age is 5 years 5 months

Bambi: Pomeranian Dog estimated age is 12 years 8 months

***BONDED PAIR ALERT*** Enjoying their "SNIFFING PERIOD" with a potential family Bambi is part of a bonded pair which means you get double the sweetness and double the fun! Sparky is her male side-kick and between the two they make a great combination. Sparky is a male black Pomeranian who loves to prance around and show off his stuff. Bambi is a beautiful blonde bombshell who will keeps her boy Sparky feeling cool and confident. Together, they make quite a pair. They both love to go for walks, cuddle, are great with other dogs, kids, and cats. Sparky and Bambi have both had dentals and have been given a clean bill of health. At Lionel's Legacy we highly promote bonded pairs to new adopters or adopters who don't currently have pets. Bonded pairs transition much easier because they have one another. Often times adopters with one dog will begin searching for a companion for their new pets only after a few months. Finding a match can be tricky but when they're already bonded it makes things that much easier on everyone! So consider a twosome and you won't be disappointed!
Bear: Labrador Retriever Dog estimated age is 8 years 1 month

Bender: Pit Bull Terrier Dog estimated age is 9 years 11 months

Chance and Bender are a bonded pair of middle aged pitties who grew up in a family with children. Sadly their family had to move right before the 4th of July and had nowhere for Chance and Bender to go so they brought them into a local shelter. Little did they know that shelters are overly crowded this time of year due to the fireworks and festivities and the boys we're given only a few days to find a new home or be euthanized. On the day they were scheduled to be euthanized due to lack of space we rescued them and have been getting to know them. What we found out is that these 2 boys are loving and loyal companions to one another and to any human they meet. Chance and bender are house trained, they are up to date on vaccines and microchipped. They are great with kids, well behaved on leash, and would like nothing more than to be your cuddle buddies! They would do best in a home with a yard to explore or someone willing to take them for walks. We know that 2 pitties sounds like a lot but in our experience a bonded pair is always easier to transition into a new home because they have each other!
Bingo: Poodle Dog estimated age is 14 years 4 months

Pepper and Bingo, sounds like a really cool rock band from the 80's! Well these two are definitely rockers at heart! They have totally 80's big rock band hair, they're seniors but don't let that ruin their image, and they like to steal hearts! These once beloved pets found themselves behind bars. Of course, not because these rock stars did too much partying or trashed any hotel rooms but unfortunately because their owner passed away and didn't have a plan for them. Well Pepper and Bingo are believed to be anywhere from 11-13. We believe Pepper to be a bit younger and Bingo definitely seems to be vision impaired or almost completely blind. They are both good with cats, dogs, kids, and potty trained. So if you have a soft spot for crazy haired mini poodles, bonded pairs, and lots of love then these 2 are just what the doctor ordered!, 11-

Gabby: Chihuahua Dog estimated age is 6 years 1 month

Grandpa: Chihuahua Dog estimated age is 11 years 5 months

If "pack" is the word for "a group of dogs" would "packette" be the word for a group of chihuahuas? Well, Grandpa came in as part of a packette of 7 chihuahuas when their owner passed away! Luckily he and his best bud, Alfie, were able to stay together and came down to San Diego. We do wonder if "Grandpa" was ALWAYS called Grandpa, or if this name came later in life? Grandpa and Alfie have both been fully vetted and Grandpa is healed from a jaw repair surgery. They are ready for adoption!

Lindy: Pit Bull Terrier Dog estimated age is 9 years 1 month

Lindy is great with dogs and cats and she recently met a horse too!

She is house trained, crate trained, not food reactive, she takes treats gently, she will let you know when she has to go outside, she walks well on a leash...but better on a harness. She know basic commands like, "sit", "go lay down", "stay", "leave it", "off", and "lets go." Lindy is not a barker. She is shy in crowds of people & is nervous on streets with lots of traffic. She loves to be inside, she feels safe in the house & in her kennel. Most importantly, she loves to cuddle.
