Frannie is a sweet girl who is looking for someone to be patient with her and give her the time she needs to adjust to new surroundings. She loves to sunbathe and would gladly snooze in the grass in the perfect sun spot all day if you let her. She has experience in a home and would do best in a quiet home where she can enjoy her golden years. Frannie's current foster family says, "Frannie is incredibly loyal and loves to keep her people together. She has developed a taste for salmon (medium rare) and cream cheese. Fran is a very proper lady from the south who has acclimated to life in Chicago. If left to her own devices, Fran could sunbathe outside all day and if you're lucky you'll capture a picture during that time of the day when the sun perfectly shines on her and makes it look like she's glowing. She loves to walk on a summer day by the beach, but is disinterested in other dogs that pass by her. Her smile can truly make your day. Fran loves to be around others, but she is very sensitive to only being touched when she wants to be and can be slow to warm up to new people. She needs to be handled with a lot of patience. She can be stubborn at times, but is very intelligent and teachable. New things and loud noises scare her and she would do best in a calm environment. She would do best in an adult home and can be with other animals as long as they are not overly energetic. If you're walking with Fran, you can expect to be stopped frequently on the street as others admire her long droopy ears and soulful eyes. Frannie is currently in a foster home, so reach out to our Foster Coordinator at to set up a meet and greet!
