My story

Local adoption preferred - Beckett needs fearful/shy dog class, which we will provide. Beckett needs an understanding, patient home that will give him time to adjust and trust.

Meet Beckett!!  Approx 5 years old and 10 lbs.

LIKES:  Beckett is pretty much a happy go lucky guy. He loves car rides, being outside, going for walks, playing with his beagle brother, playing with the cats.  Loves getting a bath.  Can be extremely timid, nervous in new settings.  Will need to continue to work on building his confidence.

DISLIKES:  New settings scare him. New people scare him, he's better with women. Once he is comfortable, he is easy going.

PERSONALITY:  Great, outgoing personality once he is comfortable.  Nervous in new settings.  If people show kindness, he will crawl right up on their lap for a cuddle.

TEMPERAMENT:  Goes with the flow.

ENERGY LEVEL:  Medium, Loves to play, but also likes to lay on fosters lap or in his bed for a nap.  Not high strung.

FAVORITE ACTIVITIES:  Being wherever you are, he's happy.  Foster has to put his bed near her when she's on the computer...he whines if she doesn't.  He loves to play with his beagle foster brother, and tries to play with the cats, who are about the size that he is.  Sometimes the cats will play, sometimes not.  Loves to be outside roaming around in the fenced in dog yard and laying in the sun.  Absolutely loves treats.

FAVORITE TREAT:  Foster mom gives her dogs chewy Milkbone treats.  He loves those and gets one whenever he goes out to go potty.

EATING SCHEDULE:  He gets dry food with a tiny bit of canned food twice a day.  Once around 9 AM and then 5 PM.

GOOD WITH CATS, DOGS, KIDS OVER 6?  Foster mom has cats, other dogs, but no kids.  She would assume that he would be ok with older long as they respect him. 

HOUSE TRAINED:  Foster would say about 85%. He wasn't house-trained when she got him, but he's been working on it.  She is home all day, so he goes outside about every 2-3 hours.  He would occasionally 'mark' in the house, but since he's been neutered, that has stopped.

SIGNALS TO GO OUT:   No, but as mentioned before, he goes out with the other dogs every 2-3 hours, and he is good with that.

CRATE TRAINED:  Yes.  Foster mom keeps him in a crate at night.  No problems at all.  No anxiety.  Doesn't do anything in the crate over night.  In the morning, he's let out of the crate and goes out to go potty.  Then, its breakfast time.  When the foster leaves the house for an extended period of time, she puts Beckett in his crate.  He has chewed a few things he found, IE dry erase marker, wooden clothespin, computer cord.. so for his own protection when she is not home, he stays in his crate.

CHALLENGES:  None really besides his anxiety/fear.  He's learning every day to be the best dog ever.

MEDICAL ISSUES:  None.  Clean bill of health from the vet.  He does have a deformed front paw, that is a birth defect.  He has no problem walking with it at all.  Doesn't bother him.  He does have a very slight limp because of the deformity, but it doesn't stop him from playing and running around in the back yard.  May be a candidate for a joint supplement earlier than later.

THE BEST HOME:  Beckett would do best in a home with a stable base, where he could get used to a daily routine.  He would love to have a fur brother or sister to play with.  Possibly a home where someone is home the biggest part of the day, to continue his potty training and just to cuddle with him! Noisy, active home would not be ideal, so no young kids.

Our adoption process starts with our application. Once the application is approved, a member of Legacy will contact you to set up a home visit. The home visit usually last 1-1 1/2 hours and is to make sure our dog and any current dogs/cats are getting along, as well as both of us agreeing it's a fit. At this time the adoption fee is due, and begins the 2 week trial. We will check in during the 2 week trial. If it's not working, our dog is returned to the foster home and all except $100.00 {$75 if Senior} of the adoption fee is returned. At the end of the 2 week trial, you decide if you will finalize the adoption - if finalized, the Adoption Contract is signed and all medical records are turned over to you. If at any time you need to rehome the dog it contractually needs to be returned to Legacy Dog Rescue.


Puppies under 6 months:  $199.00

Adults:  $150.00

Seniors (over 7 yrs):  $99.00

More about this rescue

Legacy Dog Rescue has two main purposes. First is rescue. We take dogs from many places. Pounds, stray & owner turn ins. We place them in foster homes then find them loving forever homes.

The second purpose is community service. Our spay/neuter program is very close to our hearts. We believe by focusing on spaying and neutering we are helping reduce the dogs that could be sent to the pound. We eliminate the problem before it happens. We also will assist financially to both dog owners and other rescues when appropriate.

We currently run a food assistance program to help dog owners that are struggling to feed their pets due to economic hardship. We are always accepting dog and cat food, or gift cards to help us keep food on hand.
