My story

Meet Legacy! This poor girl was sentenced to death after a minor bite incident that led to a shelter deeming her a "potentially dangerous dog." It was reported that she escaped her yard and ran up to a passerby in a friendly and playful manner, but when they turned to walk away she jumped up and bit at them. An Oklahoma rescue stepped forward to save her life and we thought she was safe, but unfortunately that wasn't the case. On the freedom ride to the other rescue, their foster bailed and the rescue said they no longer could take Legacy, leaving the volunteer transporter with no where to take this poor girl. The rescue suggested the transporter have Legacy euthanized. Terrified and confused, Legacy came into our care instead. She cannot be with other dogs and can be slow to warm to new people (although she is easily won over with cheese.) Legacy needs time to know she is going to be okay, because life is very scary sometimes and she has had a very rough time lately.

She is a loving, protective, and committed dog, and will be all the love you ever need. She is phenomenal in the car and loves to go on rides. Walkies are also one of her favorite things on the planet. Need a cuddle buddy? This potato will have no complaints filling that space on your couch.

As beautiful as she is on the outside, she has scars-both physical and those unseen. She is pretty easily won over with some mozzarella sticks, but a deep bond takes time, and once she trusts you with her whole self, watch out, because this is 65 lbs of pure love. You can see it shine in her eyes, just this deep, complete love. She is not overly hyper. She is not good with dogs, cats, small children, or vacuums.

She had a foster for a long time, who loved her deeply but eventually couldn't keep rotating her own dogs with Legacy's need to be the only pup out. Legacy loved her foster immediately, but took some time to warm up to her husband. Once Legacy was comfortable in their home, she didn't want any visitors to come over ever. Her fosters worked hard to introduce her to visitors in their home. Legacy also went to a month-long training to work on her dog reactivity and meeting new people. Now she is back with us and our trainer works with her daily, so far she has loved all our staff! She is slower to warm to blonde women though.

Legacy's life matters, she deserves a chance to be loved, please consider loving her like we do.
