~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~ FRANCES IS CURRENTLY NOT AVAILABLE FOR ADOPTION PENDING MEDICAL TREATMENT She is undergoing much needed treatment for heartworm and Lyme disease. She needs $1436 for her vet bill. You can help contribute by clicking the Cbip-In widget on the top right of her page. Thank you! ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~ Frances is a very special dog. She was one of the strays living in Far Rockaway. She was born there and had no human contact, living outside by the beach with other dogs. When she was rescued she was very afraid and wouldn’t come near us. Many people said that she could not be socialized but our wonderful foster family proved that she could and rather quickly! She is still very timid but has come along way in only two weeks. She lives inside with two other dogs and the family. She wants to be with her foster mom all the time. She follows her around the house =) Frances also walks well on a leash, got the housebreaking thing down in no time, and is playing with her foster siblings =) Her transformation has been amazing. Frances is just under 30 lbs and her age is estimated to be about 2 years old. We are looking for a furever home that understands that although she has come a long way, they need to take their time and let Frances get used to new things. If you would like to provide Frances with a loving home, please email or fill out the application by clicking "Adopt" under her photo =) Thank you!
