Update: I am devastated to report that Legacy was destroyed on Monday Jan. 13 at just one and a half years of age. Rest in peace beautiful girl.

For months, a young dog named "Legacy," had a home of her own - unfortunately, her family decided to surrender her on Dec. 30 to the New York Animal Care and Control facility in Brooklyn.

Now, although Legacy's behavior has been exemplary, her time has run out.

According to Legacy's posting on the Facebook page, Urgent Part 2 - Urgent Death Row Dogs, Legacy is scheduled to be put down on Monday, Jan. 13.

Sweet Legacy, who is still a virtual puppy at not even two years of age, is described as good with other dogs and friendly with people.

The following assessment was shared about Legacy's interaction with other dogs:

Helper Dog: A0986279 Notes: Legacy's previous owner states she is house trained and is playful with dogs and friendly with children and strangers. Legacy pulls on the leash and was sociable toward the handler during the assessment - soft body. She was excited during some of the handling items, but had soft body language. She engages in play, loose body, wags tail, mouth is open.

Legacy is young, friendly and beautiful and she is already spayed - she is ready to go home to a new family, but someone needs to know that she is there if that is to happen.

Please take a moment to network on Legacy's behalf, before she is gone forever:
