  • Size: Small 25 lbs (11 kg) or less
  • Sex: Female
  • ID#: D2016012
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!

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!
