Sparkles

Tuesday, April 30th, 2019

Just one look and Sparkles will steal your heart forever.  This sweet girl found her way to Francisvale by way of a family that loved her very much.  They were losing their home and needed a safe place for Sparkles.  You can tell by her demeanor that she was loved.  She will sit in your lap all day if you let her and bounce up and down at the sight of her friends.

 

*Has lived with other dogs.

*Has been around older children.

Jake

Monday, February 25th, 2019

Handsome Jake is looking for love.  He is a big boy weighing in at 65lbs, however Jake thinks he is a tiny little lap dog.  Our vet estimates him to be about 2 years old.  Jake would benefit from an experienced dog owner that can provide some training.  We are looking for an adult only home for Jake as we do not know anything about his history.

Alfredo

Monday, July 9th, 2018

Alfredo is a loyal companion once you get through his barrier.  He takes sometime to warm up to new people, especially men.  He loves long walks, romping around in the yard and playing with his toys.  He has stolen our hearts and can’t wait to steal yours too!

Cutie

Tuesday, June 12th, 2018

Cutie is just the most perfect name for this “pretty as a picture” Chihuahua. She may be considered a “senior” at eight years old, but she is anything but that! This Cutie pie knows who she is and what she wants. This girl has a big personality in a petite, cuddly frame. Cutie will flourish as the one and only in a quiet adult only household and will be best situated with experienced guardians who appreciate and understand how to handle an independent thinker. Cutie is a fun-loving pup who enjoys a good snuggle, a cozy bed, and lots of walks. She also savors her treats, don’t we all, but, being a figure conscious diva, she has switched to her low-calorie Charlie Bears so she is summer ready! Give Cutie your heart, and she will give you hers – what a great deal for you both!

Rudy

Wednesday, October 4th, 2017

Seven-year old Yorkie, Rudy, is as sturdy in his great sense of self as he is in his compact, little body. He knows who he is, and what he likes! One of the things he would like most of all, though, is to have a new home to share with adults-only who are okay with his sure-footed confidence and support his somewhat quirky ways. This super senior likes to take care of his things and appreciates it when his people are supportive of his need to safeguard his stuff. At the same time, Rudy will be happy to take care of you too! He’ll join you on lovely walks and fun drives in the car, and, afterwards, kick back and relax with a cozy snuggle in your favorite chair. Rudy is always up for a treat too! If a stellar companion is what you need, Rudy’s your guy.

 

*Rudy has lived with a cat.

Diamond

Wednesday, June 1st, 2016

Whoever said diamonds are a girl’s best friend obviously never have had a dog” is a quote that sure gets it right. Well, now you can have the best of both worlds…our spitz/border collie mix Diamond is waiting at Francisvale, just for you, to become your best friend. This show-stopping knock-out is gorgeous… huge dark eyes wrapped in a velvety white and tan coat with a lush plume of a tail that is most happy when it’s wagging joyful greetings. Just like diamonds are forged from coal under pressure, our Diamond has had more than her share of trying times. At just six-and-a-half years old, she has experienced some rough patches that leave her needing some of your extra special brand of TLC. So, Diamond would thrive with a guardian who knows how to provide the structure, security, and serenity Diamond needs to be happy. She also wants to be your one and only and, in exchange for that, you will be rewarded with a wiggle worm who will be over the top whenever she is in your presence. Diamond will prove to be your best companion – enjoying casual walks, playing, playing, and playing some more, and, basically, just hanging out with you as much as possible. Let Diamond sparkle through the gift of your love…you’ll be so glad you did.

 

*Diamond’s adoption fee has been sponsored.

Forrest

Thursday, February 12th, 2015

The old saying “You can’t see the forest for the trees” is quite apropos when it comes to our boy Forrest, aka Forrest Gump. If you feel that your life is overrun with details and that you’re sweating all the small stuff all the time, do yourself a favor and come meet Forrest. This guy will help you reset your happiness meter in no time flat. An easy-going sidekick, Forrest is all about embracing life with enthusiasm and joie de vivre. This down home guy, with his homespun good looks, is just a happy-go-lucky, perennial kid at heart. Need a fun-loving pal to liven up the day-to-day humdrum as well as a “chillaxin” buddy at day’s end? Then, look no further. With boundless optimism, he marches through life only looking for the best. Even though our boy is a sweet, happy goofball at heart, Forrest also knows the importance of good manners and dignified behavior. Forrest just celebrated his 7th birthday.

Leo

Friday, January 14th, 2011

Leo is one handsome dude, with his glossy, smooth tricolored coat and boyish good looks. And that expression on his face? It’s Leo wondering if you’re the one who will take him home for a wonderful life together. Leo can just imagine those walks where you and he explore the adventures along the way and get your outdoor exercise — so healthy and fun for all! Then he pictures you both settled in afterward, relaxed on the couch, doing not much of anything.

A Treeing Walker Coonhound mix, now 12, Leo is hoping to get lucky — after being pretty unlucky for a while. He was rescued from a dog hoarder and taken in by Francisvale Home for Smaller Animals in Radnor. It’s been a long wait, but he’s still confident that someone will come along soon and see how special and deserving he is. He holds back at first until he gets to know you, but once you know Leo, you’re bonded forever. He loves his dear friends with all his heart.

His other favorite thing: after a walk, flopping lazily in the sun and falling asleep – he’s working on his tan! Leo is a great companion — sweet and delightfully goofy. When he runs, he looks like he’s all legs and makes the Francisvale volunteers who walk him laugh affectionately. Can’t you just see it? You and Leo? He’d like to be your only pet; so here’s hoping! Let’s get started!
