Description: 
See Francesca's Homepage Meet our new girl Francesca who arrived just before Christmas. Thanks to her sponsor and volunteer for L&F Dog Rescue Kim, she is alive. She was rescued 1st from the end of a chain with no shelter - then she ended up being picked up by animal control for howling, well yeah, she was cold! Kim saw her story on Craig's List that said she was free to a good home which everyone ins rescue hates to see! There are people who are PAID to collect these 'FREE' animals by pretending to adopt when actually they will turn them over to dog fighters for bait. Kim called to see what the story was and found that she was 8 years old & animal control had just picked her up. Kim contacted me & I said we could take her since she is a senior & let her live her life out with us.We don't know what happened but she is certainly not 8 - she's not even two years old. Don't know why they would have said she was a senior. She came with a horrible growth on her hind quarter that was the size of a gumball and very ugly. We had it removed & thankfully it was benign so she has no medical issues.She must have a 6 FOOT fence since she has jumped the 4 foot fence already.Francesca was a pet in her life, someone took the time to teach her manners - when you get the leash, she sits politely and waits for you to put it on. LOVE THAT! She was very shy and nervous for the first few weeks but now I'm getting to see more of the real her. She is mild mannered, very calm, but now I see her wanting to play with the other dogs and me. She is starting to dance around with JOY which brings true JOY to my heart. She LOVES the sofa and my husband's chair. You can see her in the video below in the chair she sits in all day. If you want a companion dog who loves to go for walks but then just wants to cuddle on the sofa with or without you -- she is your girl. I think she is just a wonderful dog and from the moment she arrived she has had full house priviledges. She is housebroken and just waiting for someone to see how pretty she is. PLEASE NOTE: A fence is always mandatory - no exceptions. Be sure to read ALL our adoption policies prior to applying for a puppy/dog.
