Adoptable Dog of the Week- Legend

This pooch is not just mesmerizingly beautiful- he has a fab personality to match his looks! Our Adoptable Dog of the Week is Legend, a 4 years old Australian Shepherd from Troy, Illinois. This gorgeous boy is neutered, microchipped, up to date on his vaccinations, and current on both heartworm and flea and tick prevention. Troy is a sweet and smart boy that is already housebroken, and gets along with other dogs. He requires a home without any children in the family.

Legend’s Tale

Even though Legend ended up in the shelter because his previous living situation was a tough one, he’s still a happy-go-lucky pooch that wants someone that would shower him with love and snuggles. He is a sweet dog that will love snuggling up to you for some quality nap time, snuggles, or belly rubs, happy to be by your side no matter what. However, Legend also has a playful side to him, so he’ll appreciate a way to spend his energy- the thing he likes most is playing fetch. A Frisbee, branch, ball- it doesn’t matter to this doggo: as long as you’re tossing, he’ll be bringing it back!

Not unlike most Australian Shepherds, Legend is also quite a smart cookie. He is great on a leash, does well on car rides, doesn’t mind being in an open crate, and he’s fully house trained. Legend also knows basic commands such as sit, down, leave it, and he has good recall. As a friendly dog, Legend will get along with other well-mannered canines, but children and puppies are a no-go. Owing to his previous horrible experience with kids, Legend is nervous and anxious when around them, so he will be requiring an adult-only home.

In case this stunner has stolen your heart and you want to make him a part of your family, contact Speak! St. Louis for more information.
