Frances is an “All American” mix and part of that mix looks to be a small hound. She was abandoned in Rensselaer county and picked up as a stray. Frances is good on the leash and riding in the car, and while she may be a little shy at first, she quickly warms up with treats and gentle human interaction. She lets people know she’d like to make friends by her always-wagging tail! Frances is a smart girl who knows some commands and for a few treats, would be happy to learn more. She is housebroken and crate-trained. Frances is polite with other dogs when she meets them out on a walk, but in the home she would be best as an only dog. She showed no reaction to a cat during a recent vet visit, so we are cautiously optimistic she would be able to live with one. Her adoption fee has been partially sponsored. Due to her shy nature, we’re looking for a home with older children, teenagers and up, for sweet Frances.
