MARL ARRIVAL: Francis was surrendered to MARL because her owner could no longer care for her.
BACKGROUND: Meet Francis! The biggest love bug around, if you're looking for Francis during the day, you can usually find her snuggled up in a staff or volunteer's lap. When she's not busy warming a lap, she loves to get lots of treats, throw toys around for herself, and play outside in the snow with her puppy pals. This social butterfly is looking for a family to call her own, and we're sure that she'll bring a lifetime of loyalty and joy to your home! Are you ready to fall in love with Francis?
COMPATIBILITY: Based on our evaluation, we feel that Francis has the potential to get along with other dogs and cats. Francis would do best in a home with children 15 years or older.
MEDICAL NEEDS: Francis came to MARL with an old injury that has caused damage to the growth plate in her front right leg. Corrective surgery is not required at this time, but her condition will need to be reassessed when she is 11 months old. If surgery is recommended by one of MARL's approved veterinary partners, MARL will provide and pay for the procedure at that time. If you have additional questions regarding Francis's medical care, please call our office at 248-335-9290.Apply for Adoption
