About Legend

Adoption Fee: $120
American Bulldog mix
Age: Adult
Sex: Male

Hi there. My name is Legend. I'm about 6 years old and I weigh about 70 lbs. I was seized from very neglectful conditions along with several other dogs on 8/13/18. We all tested heartworm positive upon our arrival. We went through the pre-treatment course of doxycycline and prednisone and heartworm preventative. We all underwent our 2 dose immiticide injections on 9/18/18 and 9/19/18. I have completed my activity restriction and I am now able to run and play all I want. My new family will need to take over on getting me in to their vet to finish up everything. I will also need to stay on monthly heartworm preventative for the rest of my life to prevent me from getting these horrible heartworms ever again, and though it shouldn't need said, also regular vet care! I am a very sweet dog with people. I am very smart and I listen really well once I know you and respect you. Myth is my best dog friend and her and I do really well together. I haven't been good with many other dogs here at the pound, but it seems that I tend to do the best with large, friendly, female dogs, so I may be able to be re-homed with another dog as long as we get along. I am a clean boy and it appears that I was a house dog at some point in my life. If you''re looking for a great dog to add to your family, please consider adopting me. Our adoption fee is $120.00. The adoption fee must be paid in CASH. We are unable to accept personal checks or credit/debit cards for adoption fees. ALL dogs/puppies adopted from our shelter will receive their parvo distemper vaccine, bordetella vaccine, rabies vaccine (if aged at 12 weeks or older), be dewormed with a 3 day course of panacur dewormer, be microchipped, receive their current Ohio dog license and will be spayed or neutered. ALL DOGS/PUPPIES WILL BE SPAYED OR NEUTERED unless a health issue prohibits the surgery from being performed. Not all dogs posted for adoption are spayed/ neutered yet. If you're driving a long distance to adopt, please verify that the vetting process has been completed and dog you're interested in adopting is still available for adoption. The above mentioned vetting is all included in your adoption fee. The adoption fee and what is included in the adoption fee is NON-NEGOTIABLE. Adoptions MUST be done at the pound and in person as there is paperwork to fill out and an adoption contract that must be signed by the adopter. This means you must be willing to travel to our shelter to adopt. IF the dog you're interested in adopting has medical conditions or injuries which require medical treatment, we ask that you help with the medical bills so we can continue to help the dogs coming in who need additional vet care. We are a county run shelter, therefore we cannot control our intake or the health or behavior of the dogs that come in to our shelter. Although we try our hardest to place all of our adoptable dogs, there are certain circumstances in which any dog in our care could be euthanized at any time and without further notice (IE: sudden untreatable medical condition or injury, temperament or behavioral problems which may not be apparent when the dog first arrives, lack or space, etc.), therefore all dogs at our shelter should be considered urgent. The adoption of a more highly adoptable dog will mean more time for the less adoptable dog in the kennel next to him! Shelter hours are: Monday-Friday: 8 am- 4 pm Saturday: 8 am - 1 pm. Sunday: 8 am - 1 pm. Adoptions are always welcome during hours of operation. We will make special arrangements for adoptions in advance. There is nobody in the office on Saturday and Sunday, so therefore we are unable to answer or return phone calls over the weekend. Can't adopt a dog? We would love to have more volunteers who are able to spend time with our dogs! The dogs LOVE going for walks and the socialization and exercise helps make the dogs more adoptable.
