This. Is. Francis. This great guy became a TMHPR dog by sheer luck. He stumbled his way into just the right backyard. About six months ago, Francis was wandering in a Dallas neighborhood. It was clear he had been roaming for a while, or was uncared for; he was very skinny.
Friends in the neighborhood spent time on their website trying to find a way to help this boy. One evening, Francis took a liking to one our volunteer's dogs and followed them home. But he stopped short of going in the gate of the backyard. Our volunteer and her dogs moved on inside and left the gate open. Curiosity got the best of Francis and he had to see where his new friends went. In he went and the gate was closed and little did he know just how much better is life was going to be from that point.
He had no tags, no chip, no collar, just a case of nasty heartworms. Francis quickly learned that inside was okay and he fell in love with his new foster mom. She has seen him through his heartworm treatments and he is now a healthy, happy, gentle soul.
He has the goofiest smile that is so endearing. And those Ears (yes, they deserve a capital "E")! He will be so loyal to anyone who earns his trust. Could that be you? Francis' approximate birthday is 5/3/2014.
