George's Story...
Meet our boy George!

George is a handsome ten year old senior who we imagine had a pretty rough beginning. When George first arrived in his foster home, he was pretty shy and scared. He never let his foster mom get too close and would sleep quietly in the corner. We can't be sure, but believe this sweet boy may have been kept outside for some time as he has a fear of rain and thunderstorms, so a patient, understanding adopter is best.

After a few weeks to adjust, George now asks for scratches and will prance for his dinner. He's a pretty laid back guy and enjoys a big comfy dog bed to relax on. George has the most adorable dreams which he has often and with enthusiasm!
George is fostered with other dogs and cats. While he seems to like their company, he isn't playful with them and does prefer to dine alone. He loves to prance around the yard and comes in when he's called. This golden boy needs frequent potty trips, so a forgiving adopter who is home often, or well versed in the ways of the older, overactive bladder is a must!

George has blossomed into a sweet happy boy and would love to find a forever home to comfortably live out the rest of his golden years!

All of our dogs come spayed or neutered, fully up to date on vaccinations, including rabies (if age appropriate) and bordetella, are microchipped, heartworm negative, current on flea/tick and heartworm prevention, dewormed, and treated for any ailments found upon veterinary examination. The adoption fee covers a portion of these services, and makes it possible for us to continue rescuing animals.

For more information on the adoption fees and the adoption process, please complete our adoption application here: http://www.louieslegacy.org/adopt - an application allows us to get to know your family better so we can assess whether the animal you are interested in is a good match for your home. An application does not obligate you to adopt. You will receive an automated confirmation once your application is successfully submitted. Please understand that due to the volume of applications some animals receive, we are unable to contact all applicants. If your application is considered a good fit for the dog you are interested in, or even a different pet, a volunteer will give you a call ASAP.

We are a foster based rescue and do not have a shelter location where dogs can be seen during the week. Please see our Facebook page at https://www.facebook.com/LouiesLegacy for our weekly adoption album if you are interested in meeting a dog in person. Not all animals attend every adoption event, please check our Facebook page for animal event times and locations before you make a trip to meet a specific animal.

Thanks so much for caring about a needy animal!

Why Adoption is a Great Option

George, a Cincinnati Labrador Retriever dog was adopted! Here's how you can benefit by looking at adoption as an option to buying a Labrador Retriever for sale in Cincinnati, or seeking a Labrador Retriever dog from a breeder in Cincinnati.

  1. Rescues and shelter volunteers in Cincinnati already know the personality and tendencies of their pets. This means they can match you with the right pet. That will makes it much easier transition to owning a pet for yourself and your new pet.
  2. On average adoption fees are much less than you'd pay a Cincinnati breeder, or pet store. Plus most often rescue pets have already been to the veterinarian for a check-up, had a round of vaccinations, and are spayed or neutered. That is a lot of savings!
  3. You will become a hero, and give a needy dog or cat a loving home. In fact, there are even Labrador Retriever breeders who help with Labrador Retriever rescue. One puppy or kitten adopted in Cincinnati paves the way for another one to be saved.
