If you come out to the rescue property you will open the door and you will be greeted by Tara. She is about 45 pound w a brown circle around her eye. She is a jack Russell mix so she is a bit taller than a usual jack Russell. She is lean w a runners build. She will be so excited to see you that she will do zoomies around the living room area. Once inside she will bounce up and down in front of you in joy of having a visitor. If she is a little too exuberant just say off and she will sit. Sometimes she will fall over but then she will lay on her back and let you rub her belly so win win. She knows sit, come and stay. She is thrilled to go for a walk and will pull on the leash but if you use her training collar she will heel to your left and she will not pull. Initially she is run run run buts free a little play time she is very happy to cuddle next to you while you talk. She would be a great pet but if you wanted a working dog or an agility dog, she could do that too. She is pretty versatile. She is closer to 3-4 years old now. If you think she might fit into your home, please give her a chance.


About Legacy of Hope Dog Rescue

About Our Rescue Group...

This is an all volunteer organization dedicated to the improvement of the lives of our best friends.

Currently millions of pets are euthanized every year due to over population. In fact, each person in the U.S would have to take 8-9 dogs or cats per person for all of the homeless pets to be adopted. To decrease the number of pets euthanized each year it is important to educate people about the importance of spaying and neutering our pets. Also, with the help of volunteers and donations, we can help to arrange low cost spay and neuter programs, thus providing these services to those who could not otherwise afford them. Through education and spay/neuter programs we can help to combat the problem of over population. It is the national goal within animal rescue organizations that this will be a no kill nation. We will strive to do our part with your help.

For those dogs already in distress, our goal is to rescue homeless and surrendered dogs. With the support of donations and the hard work of volunteers, we can rescue and rehabilitate dogs in need. We will provide shelter, veterinary care, love, toys, food, and training for those who are in need. In addition, we work to find forever homes for each dog and, once adopted, we support the adoptive owners so the adjustment process is successful and the new family member is a permanent member.

Finally, pitbull breeds are in grave distress: of all dogs in shelters, 70-75% are pit bulls or pit bull mixes. Only 1 in 600 dogs of this breed will find a home and the remainder are euthanized. Due to the pervasive negative publicity surrounding this breed, there is a reluctance to allow one to become a family member. Yet in the past, this breed was the most popular in the country; the immortalized as the marine mascot; and was affectionately known as "the nanny dog". Through the work of dedicated animal groups such as Bestfriends Animal Society, BAD RAP and many others, this amazing breed is being given a chance to correct the negative reputation they have been unjustly branded with. Remember: a dog's behavior is a reflection of the personality traits of his or her owner and not the reverse.
