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?
