She is 55 pounds, spayed, up to date on vaccinations, micro-chipped, is heartworm negative and on preventative, house trained, and crate trained. This baby is super sweet, and only wants someone to love her forever. She prefers to be the only pet in the home. Francis is a bit shy, but warms up quickly once she can trust you.

If you are interested in fostering or adopting, go to www.thepitstoprescue.com to fill out an application. For more information about Francis, please email nicki@thepitstoprescue.com. We require that ALL current household pets be spayed/neutered, up to date on vaccinations and up to date on heartworm prevention. We will require confirmation from your veterinarian. If renting, we must have landlord approval. A fence is not a requirement for ALL of our dogs. Fences are a case-by-case determination.

If you’re looking to adopt a dog and don’t know where to start, puppyfinder.com is an excellent source for information about adopting a dog and will connect you with hundreds of shelters across the US that have adoptable puppies and older dogs waiting for forever homes.
  1. Do your research – find out what types of dogs would be a good fit for your lifestyle and the activity level of your family. Also keep in mind the grooming needs of certain breeds that might require frequent maintenance.
  2. Decide what you can handle – before you get sucked in by all the adorable puppy eyes you’re about to see, think long and hard about the appropriate age dog for your family or if you are capable of caring for a special needs dog. Puppies are a lot of work, if you don’t have time for potty training and obedience classes you’ll want to consider an older dog. There are plenty of middle aged, vibrant dogs up for adoption as well as many senior dogs that would be a great fit for a family looking for a more subdued dog with lots of love to give.
  3. Learn about the shelters and their adoption policies – It might be easier to start looking at shelters within a certain radius of home but don’t be afraid to venture out to other states as well. Many states have larger populations of adoptable dogs and their shelters are willing to transport pets to suitable adopting families. Some shelters might have requirements for a home visit, a fenced yard or require you to visit the pet multiple times before you commit to adopting. Understand that the shelters are doing their best to place the pets in suitable homes and these requirements are in the best interest of both you and the pet.
  4. Start looking… Once you know what you’re looking for and what to expect you can start your search through thousands of adoptable dogs. PuppyFinder allows you to search by age, breed, location and gender.
  5. Meet in person. Whenever possible it is best to meet the animal in person before agreeing to bring them into your life. Even though photos and descriptions can tell you a bit about a dog, you can’t get a true feeling for the animal until you are able to interact with them and make sure they are a good fit for your entire family, including other pets.

We are unsure if she was left there, wandered there or was dropped off there. It was not a safe area, so there is no telling. She was living under one of the trailers. The only friends she had were the stray cats. She is about a 1 and half years old. She is heartworm postive. We also know she has been bred before. No signs of babies though. The rescuer that found her reached out to us for help. Her amazing foster mom says she is very loving and is a big lap dog. We know this baby has been through a lot and was very confused! She deserves a stable happy life! While the rescuers helped us get some funds to start her treatment, we are still in need of more donations toward this sweet girl.
