Tadpole like Nemo and Dori believes no matter what your age, disability or ailment you should JUST KEEP SWIMMING!!!!

Tadpole is about 10-12 years old and is a spunky fun loving guy. So much so that he doesn't let anything get in his way! Tadpole came to us from OC shelter with some spinal issues that made it challenging for him to walk. He sort of waddles like a tadpole! But watch out, once he gets going he's devilishly fast and now that he is on Rimadyl he's feeling so much better! Tadpole gets along great with female dogs and loves to be loved and cuddled, he's very social and outgoing and will sometimes get so excited to see you or be held that he might widdle the excitement out of himself! Belly bands are his best friend!

Tadpole has a lot of love to give, he has already had a dental and very few teeth are left. I don't know how you couldn't just fall in love with this imperfectly adorable little guy!

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!
