Eleanor is a 6.8 pound heat seeking missile. She loves nothing more than to dive head first into her pile of blankets. She enjoys her cuddles and loves to be close to her people. She gets along well with other dogs, cats and children. She is house broken and enjoys her walks. She enjoys car rides and looking out the window at passers by. Eleanor would love to have another dogs in the home to play with. When excited, she hops on her hind legs and chirps like a birdie. Eleanor knows when she looks cute in her outfits and prances around like a beauty queen. She'd do best with direct access to the yard, but will let you know when she needs to go potty. Eleanor is approximately 10 years old.

About Lionel's Legacy

About Our Rescue Group...

Lionel's Legacy is a San Diego based senior dog rescue and elementary humane education program. We provide a last chance for senior dogs entering the shelter systems in both San Diego and Los Angeles. We solely rely on fosters to care for our seniors temporarily while looking for their furever home or as permanent hospice fosters when the need arises.

We also believe in early education as a means of preventing pet overpopulation. As a second grade teacher at Central elementary in San Diego, I see first hand the difference educating our brilliant young minds can make.

Lionel's Legacy- Saving ONE senior dog at a time and educating MANY young minds to leave a legacy of compassion and advocacy!
