ABOUT FRAN
The fantastic Fran! This cutie is a 3 year old hound mix came to HAP from a high-intake shelter when they no longer had space for her. When she first arrived, she had some reservations about meeting new people. Fran appears to trust women a lot more easily than men, though she does adore our male staff. Although she can be nervous, once Fran is comfortable with you, it's not long after that she falls in love with you! She greets all her friends with a big hug and kisses. We're not sure she knows her size, as she will climb right into your lap for some snuggles. She enjoys spending time outside, whether she's bouncing around our fenced fields or sprawled out with an enrichment toy, she is a happy girl. Fran is very well-mannered and knows basic commands. As the princess she is, she absolutely adores wearing a stylish sweater or costume. She walks well on a leash, and like her typical hound nature, she loves to sniff and can get excited to track down some squirrels. Fran has participated in our Doggy Day Out program, where she was able to get a break from shelter stress. Here's what a volunteer had to say about their day together:

"I spent the day with Fran! We had a long day at Brandywine Park today. At the start of the day, getting in and out of the car, Fran was a bit skittish but by the end, she did it all by herself. We had a lovely day at the park walking around and sniffing everything! As a hound/pointer (my guess) she wanted to smell everything and hunt. Any bird, squirrel, or goose she showed interest in chasing. With regards to other dogs, she pulled but only wanted to sniff and say hi. With small kids, she seemed excited but as if she wanted to play rough so maybe older kids would be better. She was very loving and cuddly towards me laying her head on me and jumping up to my chest. Overall we had a great day in the park and she loved the lick mat I made her w peanut butter so it was a good way to refuel her after walking all day and before her nap!"

**Fran is seeking a home with adults only, as kiddos can be too fast-paced for her. She has made some dog friends at the shelter, but is selective of her pals.

If you are interested in adoption, you are welcome to submit an adoption questionnaire! Our adoption process is first-come, best-match basis. We are not able to hold animals. If you are interested in a specific dog but it ends up not being the best fit upon meeting, our adoption counselors will work with you to help find a match! All household members, including children and other dogs, must come for the meeting to ensure it's a good fit. If a match is made, we encourage same-day adoptions! Our adoption fees include the animal's spay/neuter, microchip, age-appropriate vaccinations and preventatives, fecal testing, heartworm testing, and a small bag of food to get you started.
