amorette: Chihuahua Dog estimated age is 9 years 11 months

Bebe: Border Collie Dog estimated age is 9 years 9 months

Meet Bebe. She is one sweet and loving senior-in-training at 8 yrs young. Bebe has some physical issues that at first glance make her seem less than perfect- she has fatty lumps and bumps, bad hips, and a slightly deformed nose. But once you meet Bebe, you will realize she IS PERFECT from the inside out! She is super gentle and sweet, extremely loving and just enjoys every moment of life. Bebe lives with multiple other animals (dogs and cats) and with a very young child, she is fantastic and gentle with all of them. Bebe is a petite girl at about 40 lbs Due to her joint problems she will do best in a home with only one story (or where she can live on one story), and arthritis medications and supplements will be key for her. She will still go on leisurely walks- keeping her active and managing her weight will also help her stay comfortable. If you'd be willing to take her swimming at the beach or pool, that'd be even better! She'll take a quick dip and then watch you surf. Bebe is SPONSORED by Tanya Jones
Bender: Pit Bull Terrier Dog estimated age is 10 years 4 months

Bender has been with us since last July after his family left him at Orange County shelter only days before the fireworks went boom. Bender's life has been filled with medical booms while with us but thank goodness he has the best of care and we can continue to keep him going with everything he needs. Bender has Congestive heart failure, a mass on his spleen and liver. Bender is considered PAWSPICE but he keeps proving that the "P" word is merely a suggestion!
Bighead: Australian Shepherd/Basset Hound Dog estimated age is 16 years 0 months

Bighead came to Lionel's Legacy at the age of 15 after his human momma needed to be placed in assisted care.

His foster family has graciously brought Bighead to visit his momma who lives in a nearby specialized care facility.

Blanca: German Shepherd Dog Dog estimated age is 10 years 10 months

Blanca has lived a rough life but that has all changed since coming to Lionel's Legacy. Blanca has severe Spondylosis so when she walks there is a whole lot of swaying going on but she doesn't let that get in her way. She loves relaxing, walking around the yard, hanging with her canine buddies, and adores her humans.

Coco: Hound/Pit Bull Terrier Dog estimated age is 11 years 11 months

***FOREVER FOSTER WANTED*** Coco is quite possibly the sweetest old gal ever, recently she's had some health changes and is slowing down a bit. She has some arthritis and some cognitive changes so would enjoy a less busy household. She also had a cancerous mass removed and reoccurrence or metastatic spread is always a possibility. Coco gets along with kids, dogs, cats, stuffed animals, you name it she's good with it! Coco is potty trained, she's really easy going, and she even enjoys the crate if that's something you use at home!
Daisy: Basset Hound Dog estimated age is 11 years 11 months

Poor Daisy(now Helen) was a joint rescue between Lionel's Legacy and Four Paws Coonhound rescue and friends. Daisy was found wandering the streets and was almost hit by cars, what a scary thing for a blind and deaf dog to experience. Daisy had to have a double enucleation due to years of cherry eye and extreme scarring. Daisy is a forever foster with Sunshine and her 2 boys at Hooves, Hope and Love farm rescue. She gets to live with pigs, goats, horses, chickens, and alpacas. The world is filled with so many great smells and sounds at Hooves, Hope and Love!
Ethel: Chihuahua Dog estimated age is 14 years 10 months

Ethel was a part of a bonded duo but as life goes sometimes you have to say goodbye to the ones you love. Ethel said goodbye to Fred but has adjusted well considering and made new friends at her foster home. Ethel is about 13 years old and is the BOSS LADY which is rather hilarious to watch. Sometimes she'll try and assert herself and then within seconds she's distracted by something shiny and off she goes in the other direction. Ethel is a stout little Chihuahua but hey a lady needs her crew to know who's in charge. Really all you need to do is offer her arms or lap and she is good to go, it's really that easy!
Eve: Doberman Pinscher Dog estimated age is 13 years 9 months

Please welcome Eve to Lionel's Legacy. Eve was found nearly dead and unable to walk. No one knows if she was dumped or wandered off from her owner but sweet 13ish yr old Eve received a second shot at life and is living it up while waiting for her retirement home. Eve has some typical senior medical issues but true to canines who seize the moment that's exactly what she's doing. She goes for daily walks with other young and old canines and likes to play in the evening when everyone is feeling frisky. Eve has what's called chronic valvular heart disease and sinus arrhythmia or as the vet called it Dobie Heart Disease which is considered congenital. She seems to have no complications from this and lives like a normal aging senior.
Gideon: Chow Chow Dog estimated age is 12 years 8 months

Gideon is a poor neglected old Chow Chow who came from OC shelter. Gideon had to be hospitalized and we weren't sure if we could save him but with the help of Newport Beach Animal Hospital we were able to improve his quality of life so he could be placed into foster care. Gideon is a rough around the edges kind of dog, he is a survivor which means he's likely had to fend for himself. It's not likely he had many good experiences with humans but we're making sure to change that!
Gigi June: Rat Terrier Dog estimated age is 10 years 2 months

***COMING SOON*** This petite mon' amie will be ready to be your friend really soon. She is so sweet and gentle and we are so excited about being able to give her a second chance. We promise she won't disappoint!
Ginger: Pomeranian Dog estimated age is 11 years 2 months

Ginger came to us from West Valley Los Angeles shelter. She was in dire need of rescue with multiple medical issues. Many would say her issues were so numerous that it wouldn't be worth saving her life but we never feel it's fair to make that decision not knowing what their lives and medical care were like before coming to us and whether or not there is anything we can do to treat their needs and/or bring them relief from pain. Ginger is blind, has eye and ear infections, has a mass on her eye, has pancreatitis and is in some sort of pain either from the mass around her eye or arthritis. Ginger will get to live out her life with our forever foster mom Sandy with her new canine friends.
Ginny: Rat Terrier Dog estimated age is 12 years 2 months

***FOSTER NEEDED*** Ginny is recovering from an eye enucleation and is looking for a foster family! She is so sweet and gentle, gets along with all other dogs and cats, and is good with people. She's so quiet that sometimes you forget she's there. She would love a quiet place to hang out and enjoy your company. She is fine with you coming or going so takes very little work on your part.
Joey: Mastiff/Shepherd Dog estimated age is 7 years 1 month

***FOSTER NEEDED*** Joey is looking for a new family! Joey has sadly been in and out homes like an orphan and we want to change all of that because he deserves better. Joey is about 140 pounds of pure love. He adores kids, cats and other dogs. If you saw him in action you would immediately think, "Wow, now that dog is a nanny dog!" He knows how to take care of his little 2 legged friends. Joey is a big boy and at 7 years of age he still loves to go for walks. Joey is also crate trained which helps keep him calm and relaxed when you're away. We are going to be very picky finding the right home for this guy, he really deserves a commitment for life! What do you think? We know you want to come and meet him!
Kahlua: Labrador Retriever Dog estimated age is 13 years 0 months

Kaluha is an 11 year old hound cross, perhaps lab, perhaps pit bull mix. She is an old lady who loves to snore late into the morning and appreciates nothing more than a late afternoon nap. She definitely prefers a slow paced life, though perhaps not on the farm. She's very suspicious of her horsey companions. Cats are a new concept to her and she certainly enjoys giving them a good run, but a bark and short chase usually suffices. Low key canine companions are okay as long as they steer clear of her food bowl and respect her bubble of space. She really enjoys an affectionate pat, good roll in the sun, and all the treats that hide her pills. Most awesome is her patience with kids, and my kids adore her. Kahlua is a sweet old gal who is house and crate trained and is ready to be your faithful sidekick!
Muffin: American Bulldog/Labrador Retriever Dog estimated age is 11 years 3 months

Muffin (Max) came to us from a shelter in South Los Angeles. At the age of 8 he was relinquished by his owners due to financial hardships and having to move. Poor Muffin only knew family life prior to being taken to the shelter and was incredibly sad. Muffin has recurring hemangiosarcomas which need to be monitored and require periodic removal. He lives up in the mountains with both human and canine foster siblings.
Olaf: Schnauzer Dog estimated age is 13 years 0 months

Olaf is a sweet and quiet mini Schnauzer. He likes to cruise around, enjoys the company of other dogs, and really loves his naps. He's an easy going little fella who doesn't require much in life. He's great at the vet, travels well and seems to adjust to new people and places pretty easily for an old codger. This boy does enjoy his meals so make sure you have plenty of food to feed an army cause we swear he has one hiding in his belly!
Penelope: Beagle/Pug Dog estimated age is 10 years 2 months

***COMING SOON*** Little Miss Penelope is currently recovering from having her leg amputated due to a large ulcerated Mast cell tumor.

Rune Goldberg: Dachshund Dog estimated age is 8 years 0 months

Sadie: Yellow Labrador Retriever Dog estimated age is 14 years 8 months

Sweet Sadie is the most wonderful old gal we've met. She hadn't been given much love in her life by her humans before coming to us, so her foster mom is making up for lost time! Sadie is a typical goofy lab who is obsessed with food and tennis balls- watch your sandwich kids! Due to lack of care in her life Sadie has a number of medical issues, including severe arthritis, hypothyroidism and recurrent (benign) fibrous tumors. Although Sadie has lost a lot for physical control in recent months she is still mentally with it. Given her age and condition- and seeing how blissfully happy she is with her foster family we decided Sadie should be a Forever Foster. Lionel's Legacy will continue to provide her the best medical care to keep her comfortable, and her foster mom will provide the tennis balls! Sadie is SPONSORED by Marion Brown
Sally: Anatolian Shepherd/German Shepherd Dog Dog estimated age is 12 years 1 month

Sally is a shepherd/lab mix and approximately 11 years old. She was sadly found in the middle of the desert and a good sam kindly picked her up and contacted us for help. Sally was definitely someone's pet as she knows many tricks and commands. Sally worked hard for over two years to sabotage any and all potential adoptions so that she could stay with her foster mom- and we finally decided to give in and make it official: she is a Forever Foster! Oh Silly Sally- you sure did luck out with your foster momma! Sally's mom had to move back east so Sally got to come along for the ride and now gets to live in all 4 seasons. She is definitely slowing down these days and has had continued issues with skin, ear, thyroid and arthritis issues. Recently she had MRSA and had to be on multiple rounds of very strong antibiotics to get rid of it. Sally is a lucky gal and although she has been a challenge for us all we're happy to have made a difference in her life.
Scooby: Shetland Sheepdog Sheltie Dog estimated age is 14 years 11 months

Shadow: Dachshund Dog estimated age is 14 years 0 months

Sophie: Cattle Dog Dog estimated age is 10 years 9 months

Sophie is a 10 year old Border Collie who loves to play fetch with a tennis ball. She will go and go until she drops! Sophie likes meeting people and is very social, she's always looking for a hand to nudge for a good petting! Sophie is good with other dogs outside of the home but inside the home her herding instincts kick into high gear and all she really wants to do at home is take a siesta. Sophie is easy to walk on the leash and even though she's a full figured gal she's used to taking long walks with her foster mom. Sophie is so good she'll even stay by your side off leash. Sophie rides nicely in the car and sits quietly for baths and grooming. Sophie may be a senior but she's looking for someone to play fetch with and go for walks around the town with. I have had my bloodwork done and in in good health and ready to find my new home!
Starlett: Chihuahua Dog estimated age is 9 years 4 months

Starlett may not be the most adoptable of our senior sweeties due to being treated for congestive heart failure and seizures but this girl enjoys the good life with her foster canine and feline siblings. You know these dogs are pretty resilient because they tend to not worry about these "small details" and just enjoy each and every day. Sounds like a can-do attitude if you ask me! Contact us today to learn more about Starlett.
Tadpole: Pomeranian Dog estimated age is 11 years 6 months

Tadpole like Nemo and Dori believes no matter what your age, disability or ailment you should JUST KEEP SWIMMING!!!! Tadpole is about 10-12 years old and is a spunky fun loving guy. So much so that he doesn't let anything get in his way! Tadpole came to us from OC shelter with some spinal issues that made it challenging for him to walk. He sort of waddles like a tadpole! But watch out, once he gets going he's devilishly fast and now that he is on Rimadyl he's feeling so much better! Tadpole gets along great with female dogs and loves to be loved and cuddled, he's very social and outgoing and will sometimes get so excited to see you or be held that he might widdle the excitement out of himself! Belly bands are his best friend! Tadpole has a lot of love to give, he has already had a dental and very few teeth are left. I don't know how you couldn't just fall in love with this imperfectly adorable little guy!
