Meet Legend, Lubbock’s Awesome Pet of the Week

This week’s Awesome Pet of the Week, sponsored by Joyland, is legendary. How do we know? Because his name is Legend!

Legend’s story is a bit sad. This is actually his second stint at The Haven ACS. He found a loving owner five years ago while at the shelter. His owner is now moving overseas, and due to breed discrimination, she isn’t allowed to bring him along.

Here’s more about the big boy from The Haven:

Introducing the legendary and lovable ‘Legend’. He is such a super boy…8 yo, neutered, H/B, loves kids, good with other dogs and very well behaved. He’s a stocky boy too, I’m guessing about 70 lbs of solid muscle.

His owner is moving overseas and cannot take him, due to breed discrimination. She adopted him from The Haven about 5 years ago and now has to give him up. How heartbreaking for both of them. We are all praying someone can love him and give him a good home.
His adoption fee is $150, which includes neuter, current vaccinations and a microchip. Come and meet Legend Wed/Fri 2-5 or Sat 10-5.

Since Legend is our Awesome Pet of the Week, if you do choose to make her part of your family, you’ll get a free bag of Blue Buffalo Dog Food and a $20 gift certificate from Pets Plus, plus dinner for two at the dog-friendly BushHog’s Restaurant.

If you’re interested in adopting Legend or see plenty more cats and dogs looking for a forever home, visit The Haven Wednesday and Friday from 2 to 5 p.m. or Saturday 10 a.m. – 5 p.m. to meet him. It’s located at 4501 N Farm to Market 1729 in Lubbock, Texas.
