Greetings from Princess - the sweetest butt-wiggler you've ever met! This petite girl was adopted out as a pup from the local shelter, only to be picked up as an emaciated, heart-worm positive stray a few years later. She almost didn't make it out of the shelter alive the second time as the staff vet wrote her off early due to weight loss and a mystery illness that our vet couldn't find. His only recommendation, besides treatment of the heartworms, was to fatten her up which we've been in the process of doing over the past few months. Princess absolutely adores her humans and has the brightest grin seen on a dog! She's a bit on the defense with new dogs which could be the result of her homeless days or worse;  So, she learned some socializing skills with our trainer and adapted rather well. The only thing left is finding Princess the forever family that she's so deserving of...could that be you?

About Barkie's Legacy

About Our Rescue Group...

We rescue stray dogs or those in Florida shelters whose time is up and adopt them out to loving homes. We are amazed at the amount of dogs that are unwanted, unloved or abused, so we're trying to make a difference one dog at a time!

Come Meet Our Pets...

During the week, by appointment. Most Saturdays we are at the Apopka Petco located at 2227 East Semoran Blvd, Apopka, 32703 from 1:00pm to 5:00pm.
We do our best to update our Facebook page: https://www.facebook.com/#!/pages/Barkies-Legacy/237852656255202 with any special events around town. It's always good to send us a message to confirm we'll be there as we'd love to have you come visit our babies!

Our Adoption Process...

We believe our dogs and puppies deserve the best homes, so all prospective adopters must have good references and agree to a home visit. All our dogs are up-to-date on shots and spayed or neutered. An adoption fee is charged to help defray veterinarian and other expenses. We have promised our babies that they will never have to worry again, so adopters will sign a contract agreeing to take good care of the animal, and if an adoption doesn't work out for any reason, the animal MUST be returned to Barkie's Legacy.
