Facts about Grandpa

  • Breed: Chihuahua
  • Color: Unknown
  • Age: Senior
  • Size: Small 25 lbs (11 kg) or less
  • Sex: Male
  • ID#: D2015095
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!

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!

Our Adoption Process...

Our initial adoption process begins with an application of interest, a phone interview, an interact with all family members including pets, and a home check. Among completion and review of those areas then an adoption will be finalized with an adoption agreement, adoption fee, and followed up with a check-in within 2 weeks of bringing the new pet home.
