LEGEND / Tavares, FL




Meet Legend!  He is an affectionate male cream colored Standard Poodle, and was a former Therapy Dog.  Legend was born 1/15/2020.  VIP RESCUE adopts to Florida Residents only.  Legend requires a 6-foot fenced grassy yard to exercise and play, no exceptions.   Legend and other pets were found locked in pens outdoors with no access to food or water after their owner was found deceased.  Legend came to VIP Rescue weighing in at 39.8 pounds.  His past medical records show his weight should be 55.  At present he is gaining weight, has a good appetite, and weighs in at 47.  He eats Taste of the Wild Pacific Stream Grain Free food due to food sensitivities.  Legend is good with other dogs of his own size, he is very active, and very playful.  He is leash trained, crate-trained, and knows sit and usually comes when called.  He likes to be chased by dogs and kids, plays fetch, but has not mastered bringing back the item.  He has been great with respectful children of all ages.  He is housetrained at his fosters home, but that means taking him out immediately in the morning, and immediately after being crated.  He needs structure with his house training at a new home.   He would love to nuzzle up with you on your sofa, or on your lap if you prefer.  He is timid when meeting new people, and will come to you on his terms after you are seated.   He is good on the groom table and needs monthly grooming and frequent baths.  When Legend came into VIP Rescue, he was severely matted and was shaved down as a result.  

Legend is recently neutered, up to date on all vaccines, heartworm negative, and microchipped.  He is scheduled for a dental June 15, and will be available for adoption immediately after.   Legend would do well in a younger active home setting with a parent at home, with lots of energy to play with him, inside and out, and long walks.   He is not a good dog for seniors due to his high activity level and age of 2.  Legend is fostered in Tavares, Florida.  To adopt Legend, you must come to meet him at his foster home, and bring your dog(s) to make sure it is a match.

If you meet the qualifications for Legend, please complete an adoption application at VIP Rescue to be considered.  www.viprescue.org   A home-visit is a pre-requisite in the adoption process at VIP RESCUE.  Legends adoption donation is $500.  

VIP RESCUE thanks all those who donated to our fundraiser for Legend and the other 6  dogs that we took in on emergency basis from the shelter.   We are grateful for your continued support.  They are all doing well at this time, and will be listed when they become available for adoption.
