ADOPT – Legend – Weimaraner / Lab Mix
Legend is a stunning 2-year old Weimaraner mix looking for a home with patience and love. Legend was turned into a high-kill shelter when his owner’s new landlord wouldn’t allow him in the building. The shelter quickly realized he needed a rescue group to help him with his fear and anxiety, and with little time left he joined Arctic Spirit (OK, probably not a sled dog, but he deserved a break!). He loves attention but will need a home that can help him learn to trust and feel safe. We believe he had very little experience in the world prior to being surrendered. He is a bright, energetic boy who loves to play fetch with his rope and ball, and loves to snuggle up at night. He is very smart, learns quickly, and is treat motivated. He LOVES to play fetch He will need a home with no young children and no other dogs or one other dog who is relatively calm, as he finds commotion stressful. True to his breed, he will need daily exercise. Legend has gone to training to help manage his fear aggression. He is sweet and loving with people he knows, and craves attention, but does not do well with strangers. He needs a home that will continue to work with him to ensure he feels safe and that strangers are safe around him. He has mild medication to help with this and is learning that the world can be a wonderful place. Legend is neutered, up to date on shots and in excellent health. His adoptive family will need to attend a couple of training sessions, paid by Arctic Spirit Rescue, to help in the transition of this beautiful boy. He will make a wonderful pet for the right home.
