The MOST gentle of gentle giants, Francis. 

Many say that he resembles the wise one, Yoda.  In fact he dressed as Yoda for Halloween.  But, that is about as silly as Yoda, I mean Francis will get. 

This gentle soul became a TMHPR dog by sheer luck.  He stumbled his way into just the right backyard.  Francis was wandering in a Dallas neighborhood, clearly tired of the street life, he was skinny, shy and simply trying to determine if there were kind humans in the world.

Long story short, he followed one of our volunteers and her dogs home one evening and curiosity led him into the backyard.  from that point on, he has met some of the kindest humans in Dallas.  He has learned that living in a home is quite awesome, sleeping on a bed is comfy and that humans can be good.

He is now 100% healthy and has been through the K-9 University board & train program.  This program has boosted his confidence and has made him a NEW dog.  He is still ever so gentle when meeting new people, but we believe that is his gentle nature.

His Forever Family will have access to ongoing training with Francis, if needed.  He continues the classes to continue to build his confidence, not control boisterous behavior.

Francis continues to be overlooked at Meet & Greets.  He does not stand up and show off.  He is not fluffy.  He is not boisterous.  

But, he is kind, loving and accepting of all. He would do fabulously in a home where he had a female canine companion to show him the ropes.   He will be so loyal to anyone who earns his trust.  Could that be you?

About Take Me Home Pet Rescue

About Our Rescue Group...

Take Me Home Pet Rescue is a 100% nonprofit organization committed to reducing the homeless pet population by removing dogs and cats from shelters and other unfortunate situations and having them spayed, neutered, vaccinated and microchipped before being adopted to their forever families.

We consists of a small core group of volunteers who care about the welfare of our homeless pets. We are located in Richardson, Texas and survive solely from your generous donations and fundraiser's (after fundraiser...after fundraiser!). All of our pets live in our homes as we do not have an actual facility. Because they live within the dynamics of the foster families and are exposed to children of all ages and other pets, we find that that our foster cats and dogs are more adoptable as they have already been socialized to live in a family environment.

We have been in existence since April 2008 and have already rescued over 600 dogs and cats from local kill shelters and other unfortunate situations.

All dogs and cats are spayed and neutered before being adopted. These pets also receive all appropriate vaccinations and are microchipped. In effort to reduce the possibility of the pet being returned, adopters are carefully screened to be sure that the personality of both the pet and adopter are a good match.

Our Adoption Process...

All applications are submitted to an adoption board for approval to ensure a happy forever home for both owner and pet. In effort to reduce the possibility of the pet being returned, adopters are carefully screened to be sure that the personality of both the pet and adopter are a good match. We will be in contact with you during this process.

Puppies are ready to go home after their 2nd of 3 shots and spay/neuter are complete. A $50 deposit will hold the puppy of your choice. The 3rd. shot is included in the adoption fee.

All pets are to be kept as indoor, non-working, members of your family and are spayed and neutered before being adopted. These pets also receive all appropriate vaccinations and are microchipped.

A safe pet home visit is included in the adoption fee.
