It is with great heartache that the Village writes this post…

 

Earlier this month we took in a 4-year-old male Frenchie, named Legend, who was not eating well, had diarrhea and was vomiting. It was thought that he had an infection from a dog bite and due to some significant life changes, his owner was not able to afford his care. His loving owner made the difficult decision to surrender Legend to the Village so that he could receive the care he needed.

Sadly, upon further investigation from the vet, it was found that Legend did not have an infection from a dog bite, but instead had Stage IV lymphoma. Hard lumps on his neck and under his chin, as well as in his legs, were found and tests confirmed that the cancer had spread to his organs. He was given meds to alleviate some of the pain and hospice care was provided by his foster family. He was given healthy meals, walks, playtime with his foster fur brother and lots of love and cuddles.

When his physical symptoms progressed and his pain worsened, the Village and his foster family made the difficult decision to allow Legend to cross over the Rainbow Bridge where he can now run free of cancer and pain.

Legend was a big boy weighing in at around 32 lbs and was so sweet, easy-going. He loved chew toys and bones. He really was one of a kind and so easy to fall in love with! He will be sorely missed by all who knew him. RIP dear Legend….you will never be forgotten. ❤️❤️❤
