Update: Francis the Three-legged Wonder Dog

We first introduced you to Francis a few weeks ago, he came to us with a severely injured leg that the veterinarian was not able to save; this left amputation as the only alternative. You can read that post here.

After surgery Francis was taken in by one of our amazing foster moms, where he was able to recover from surgery in a safe, calm and loving atmosphere and where he has learned to navigate through life as a three-legged dog. Let me tell you, it didn’t take him more than a few minutes to adjust…now he is able to do all the things he could do before the surgery!

Here he is today…

Here is a quote from his foster mom:

“I haven’t been able to keep him still long enough to get a picture of his face. I haven’t given up but my phone battery is low! I’ll send more as soon as I get him cornered to look at me without running to me. He is a fun and happy guy but my-o-my is he energetic! He loves his walks and wants to please. (Needs basic obedience work).”

Of course he’s never had any obedience training, he has been a stray most of his life. But as eager as he is to please, he would take to it quickly! As you can see, the missing leg doesn’t slow him down a bit!

Francis will be available for adoption very soon so if you are interested and would like to meet Francis, just give us a call: 509-675-2539


As you can imagine, the cost for Francis’s surgery and subsequent medical care has been expensive, if you are able to chip in, even just a few dollars toward his bill, we have set-up a secure fund here.
