Honey

Monday, November 19th, 2018

Honey is a beautiful 8 1/2 year old extremely affectionate spayed female miniature dachshund who was abused and became paralyzed in the rear legs. But that doesn’t stop her from running around in her wheels or even scooting. She is a special needs dog and needs to be the only dog in the household. We currently are searching for a foster home for her.  Her medical expenses will be provided for.

Geoffrey

Tuesday, November 13th, 2018

Hi!  My name is Geoffrey!  I have long legs like a giraffe so the Francisvale team thought I should be named after the giraffe Geoffrey, from Toy Story.  They are so silly!  I am a love bug.  I like to crawl up on your shoulders and make myself comfortable.  I enjoy walks, playing and treats.  Really, I just am an all-around sweet guy, not to toot my own horn or anything.  I do not like to be left alone much, so I would love a home where my people are around a lot.  I cannot wait to meet you!

Cleo

Monday, October 15th, 2018

Sometimes life just throws us a curve ball we weren’t expecting. Such is the case for a wonderful senior beagle named Cleo. Soon to be ten years old, Cleo was happily ensconced in a sweet home where she received as much love as she gave. Then, misfortune fell. Her elderly guardian was no longer able to care for this beloved pet, and so Cleo finds herself at Francisvale in need of a family to love. Just looking into her gentle eyes, there is no doubt that therein beats a heart that would love to love ya, baby. She is the quintessential social creature, loving to talk, connect, and make friends with her human and canine counterparts. Cleo also has an adventurous streak that belies her age and gives her a happy-go-lucky joie de vivre. Doesn’t all this sound terrific? Give Cleo the new life she deserves with you, and your life will be enriched too. A win-win for everybody!

Brady

Friday, September 21st, 2018

If you’re a family on the go, go, go and want a companion who will match you step for step, young Brady should be your go-to guy. Just a pup at ten months old, this Jack Russell Eskimo mix is a lively 37 pound bundle of unadulterated joy and energy! Brady would appreciate a guardian who is willing to help him learn how to harness his exuberant puppy ways so that he can become the model canine citizen he knows he can be. Puppy training classes and at-home follow through should be just the ticket to get Brady to the head of the class! Having Brady by your side as your jogging and hiking pal will make for endless hours of happy trails.

Alfredo is a loyal companion.  He loves long walks, romping around in the yard and playing with his toys.  He has stolen our hearts and can’t wait to steal yours too!

Cutie

Tuesday, June 12th, 2018

Cutie is just the most perfect name for this “pretty as a picture” Chihuahua. She may be considered a “senior” at eight years old, but she is anything but that! This Cutie pie knows who she is and what she wants. This girl has a big personality in a petite, cuddly frame. Cutie will flourish as the one and only in a quiet adult only household and will be best situated with experienced guardians who appreciate and understand how to handle an independent thinker. Cutie is a fun-loving pup who enjoys a good snuggle, a cozy bed, and lots of walks. She also savors her treats, don’t we all, but, being a figure conscious diva, she has switched to her low-calorie Charlie Bears so she is summer ready! Give Cutie your heart, and she will give you hers – what a great deal for you both!

Rudy

Wednesday, October 4th, 2017

Seven-year old Yorkie, Rudy, is as sturdy in his great sense of self as he is in his compact, little body. He knows who he is, and what he likes! One of the things he would like most of all, though, is to have a new home to share with adults-only who are okay with his sure-footed confidence and support his somewhat quirky ways. This super senior likes to take care of his things and appreciates it when his people are supportive of his need to safeguard his stuff. At the same time, Rudy will be happy to take care of you too! He’ll join you on lovely walks and fun drives in the car, and, afterwards, kick back and relax with a cozy snuggle in your favorite chair. Rudy is always up for a treat too! If a stellar companion is what you need, Rudy’s your guy.

Diamond

Wednesday, June 1st, 2016

“Whoever said diamonds are a girl’s best friend obviously never have had a dog” is a quote that sure gets it right. Well, now you can have the best of both worlds…our spitz/border collie mix Diamond is waiting at Francisvale, just for you, to become your best friend. This show-stopping knock-out is gorgeous… huge dark eyes wrapped in a velvety white and tan coat with a lush plume of a tail that is most happy when it’s wagging joyful greetings. Just like diamonds are forged from coal under pressure, our Diamond has had more than her share of trying times. At just five-and-a-half years old, she has experienced some rough patches that leave her needing some of your extra special brand of TLC. So, Diamond would thrive with a guardian who knows how to provide the structure, security, and serenity Diamond needs to be happy. She also wants to be your one and only and, in exchange for that, you will be rewarded with a wiggle worm who will be over the top whenever she is in your presence. Diamond will prove to be your best companion – enjoying casual walks, playing, playing, and playing some more, and, basically, just hanging out with you as much as possible. Let Diamond sparkle through the gift of your love…you’ll be so glad you did.

Forrest

Thursday, February 12th, 2015

The old saying “You can’t see the forest for the trees” is quite apropos when it comes to our boy Forrest, aka Forrest Gump. If you feel that your life is overrun with details and that you’re sweating all the small stuff all the time, do yourself a favor and come meet Forrest. This guy will help you reset your happiness meter in no time flat. An easy-going sidekick, Forrest is all about embracing life with enthusiasm and joie de vivre. This down home guy, with his homespun good looks, is just a happy-go-lucky, perennial kid at heart. Need a fun-loving pal to liven up the day-to-day humdrum as well as a “chillaxin” buddy at day’s end? Then, look no further. With boundless optimism, he marches through life only looking for the best. Even though our boy is a sweet, happy goofball at heart, Forrest also knows the importance of good manners and dignified behavior. Forrest will celebrate his 7th birthday this upcoming January. What a great gift for him to celebrate in his very own, forever home.

Santana

Thursday, July 11th, 2013

Hi!  My name is Santana! I am a sweet handsome boy with a gigantic heart.  I came to Francisvale when my owner became very ill.  I am so lucky as I get to live in a foster home. I have so much fun everyday as I wait for my forever family to come along.

Please don’t discriminate against me because of my breed. I have all of the best Pit Bull qualities and if you take me into your home and heart I bet Pit Bulls are all you will ever want.

Nemo

Wednesday, February 9th, 2011

Having just turned nine in February, this old salt has logged a lot of miles under his collar but that just means Nemo’s rich with personality and the wisdom that comes along with age. Nemo has learned the advantages of being a one person dog. If you and Nemo hit it off, you will never find a companion more trustworthy or deserving of your love. You will certainly have his undivided devotion. This boy is into living life’s adventures one hundred percent…loving those long walks, sweet treats, and mutual hugs and kisses. That said, he also likes mellow time with his one and only…nothing like sharing a couch together in companionable silence or a quiet sit down in the yard to commune with nature. Nemo’s past experiences makes him a little shy, at first, but, if you let him get to know you and trust you, his connection with you will be a bond forged in steel. Lovable, loving, faithful, and true – who could ask for anything more?

Champ

Tuesday, January 18th, 2011

If you’re looking for a totally rockin’ relationship of the four-legged variety, then look no further, Champ’s your guy. This 10-year-old bundle of unbridled love is the sweetheart you need. Champ, a handsome, black and white pointer mix, will devote his whole heart and soul to his forever family. He is loyal, affectionate, fun, and playful — a winning combination, don’t you think? Champ is an open-hearted boy that loves to love people — how great is that? He’s a bright boy that would be happy to learn all kinds of new things with his best friend. He loves to sleep with his stuffed teddy bear, but he’d be happy to share his bear with you if you want a cuddler in bed. Speaking of cuddling, this active guy also appreciates the fine art of relaxation. He would be soooo happy to curl up on your lap with you to enjoy some sweet down time together. Don’t be surprised when he reaches up to send a few kisses your way … that’s just his style. Being the free spirit that he is, Champ appreciates the freedom of moving around his environment at will. Champ’s a winner. Why not make him your winner?

Leo

Friday, January 14th, 2011

Leo is one handsome dude, with his glossy, smooth tricolored coat and boyish good looks. And that expression on his face? It’s Leo wondering if you’re the one who will take him home for a wonderful life together. Leo can just imagine those walks where you and he explore the adventures along the way and get your outdoor exercise — so healthy and fun for all! Then he pictures you both settled in afterward, relaxed on the couch, doing not much of anything.

A Treeing Walker Coonhound mix, now 12, Leo is hoping to get lucky — after being pretty unlucky for a while. He was rescued from a dog hoarder and taken in by Francisvale Home for Smaller Animals in Radnor. It’s been a long wait, but he’s still confident that someone will come along soon and see how special and deserving he is. He holds back at first until he gets to know you, but once you know Leo, you’re bonded forever. He loves his dear friends with all his heart.

His other favorite thing: after a walk, flopping lazily in the sun and falling asleep – he’s working on his tan! Leo is a great companion — sweet and delightfully goofy. When he runs, he looks like he’s all legs and makes the Francisvale volunteers who walk him laugh affectionately. Can’t you just see it? You and Leo? He’d like to be your only pet; so here’s hoping! Let’s get started!
