Meet Fran!

Fran is a shy little girl who came from a puppy mill closing. We think Fran is about 1-2 years old and belge color. She is around 12-14 lbs. She looks funny in her pictures because she was shaved right down almost to her skin even her beard! She will look a bit better in a few weeks after she grows some hair back.

Fran will need someone with patience who will teach her confidence but she has been coming out of her shell in her foster home. When you first want to pet her she is nervous and jumpy but if you stop she does come back and gives you a kiss and asks for more petting. She needs help with housebreaking and leash training although she is already beginning to learn that.

Fran is spayed, up to date on all vaccines and on heartworm preventative. She is being fostered in Michigan.

If you are interested in adoption please fill out our Adoption Application. If you would like more information, please contact Vicki.

Keep in mind that we prefer to place dogs within driving distance of where they are being fostered. If someone from outside the local area is approved for adoption, they must be willing to fly in to get the dog and that can only happen if the dog is stable enough to travel in the cabin with the passenger.
