Joey is basically an 80 pound love muffin. He will follow you from room to room just be in your presence. He will sleep next to your bed, lay near you while watching tv, and sit behind you while working in your home office. He has never shown any desire to get on the furniture - preferring to lay on the floor or occasionally his dog bed. He just wants to love you and gives rapid tail wags when you give love in return. Joey is 100% house trained. Knows sit, stay, and down (although that command is work in progress). He takes treats from your hand in a very gentle manner. He currently lives with his foster Mom in a quiet home with 2 cats and a second foster dog. Here is a video of Joey playing with his foster sister, Lois, also looking for a forever home: https://www.youtube.com/watch?edit=vd&v=3_rUs95Mefc
He ignores the cats (unless they sneak up on him and then they get a warning bark) he wants to play with the 2nd foster dog but she basically ignores him. He would do well with another calm dog. Joey is about as perfect as they come and he would be an awesome addition to your family.

Joey was rescued from a high intake rural outdoor shelter in Southeastern Missouri where he was on death row. There is no adoption program there, his only way out was to be rescued. Joey was provided life-saving treatment for heartworm disease. He will need to remain on heartworm preventative for life, as is recommended for ALL dogs, and retested in 6 months to ensure he is heartworm free. Dolly's Legacy is honored to have saved his life and have promised him a happy home.

Joey is a 3 yr old Chocolate Lab who currently weighs 80 lbs but could easily put on another 25 lbs. He came to us malnourished & thin. We are working on fattening him up. He is neutered, vaccinated, microchipped, given flea/tick preventative, dewormed. Adoption fee is $300. The FIRST step is to have you complete our online adoption application. All adoption appointments are scheduled AFTER your application has been approved. Preference is given to those with a verifiable veterinary reference, home ownership & fenced yard, although not required unless specifically noted in pet description. Home ownership is verified through court records. If you are a renter, you must provide landlord contact information.

Come Meet Our Pets...

Thank you for contacting Dolly's Legacy Animal Rescue with your interest in adopting one of our beautiful orphaned pets. We are a foster-home based rescue group and do not have a facility. All of our adoptable pets with their photos, descriptions, adoption fees & most information requested about them can be seen on our website which is updated daily at this link: http://dollyslegacyanimalrescue.org/adopt/ If they are still listed on our website, they have not yet been adopted. Since most of the pets we rescue have been orphaned or abandoned, we are not certain of their breed/mix and are not able to pinpoint how big they will be full-grown if they are still young. We do our best to determine the breed(s) they most closely resemble.

The first step is to have you complete our online adoption application. Please visit our website at this link to see our adoption guidelines, on this page you will also find the link to complete & submit an adoption application: http://dollyslegacyanimalrescue.org/adopt/guidelines-application.html
All adoption appointments are scheduled after your application has been approved. We need ALL family members or those living within your home, including pets (dogs not cats), to come for the appointment. We are 100% volunteer staff. PLEASE be sure to answer all questions completely or you will get an error message and have to start over, you MUST complete ALL fields of the application. We do not "hold" pets for a specific date. If you are going on vacation, or cannot take when the pet is available, please wait to apply until you are ready to adopt. We do out of state/area adoptions, but approved adopters are required to come to an adoption appointment, we do not ship pets. The final approval to adopt is after we have met applicants and feel they are the right match for that particular pet.
