MARL ARRIVAL: Francesco was brought to MARL to as a stray.
BACKGROUND: Meet Francesco! Though this handsome man was quite shy when he first arrived at MARL, it didn't take him long to win us over! With his award-winning hugs, and cuddly demeanor, Francesco warmed up quickly with staff and volunteers. A big fan of all the attention, playing with other dogs and hanging out with his favorite people, once he knows you, Francesco is one social butterfly. We know it may take him awhile to get truly comfortable and show off all the best parts of his winning, happy-go-lucky personality in a home but have no doubt that the wait is worth it. All he needs now is a chance.
COMPATIBILITY: Based on our evaluation, we feel that Francesco has the potential to get along with other dogs. Francesco would do best in a home without cats and with children 15 years or older.
MEDICAL NEEDS: Francesco has tested positive for Heartworm Disease, and is currently looking for a foster home while he goes through his treatment. Heartworm disease is not contagious to other animals or people. Francesco will need to be on medication that MARL will provide, and brought to MARL for check ups until he has been cleared. If you have questions regarding Francesco or his treatment, please give our front desk a call at 248-335-9290.Apply for Adoption
