Frances is a very pretty 12 year old small Crossbreed girl — with some Sheltie and Corgi in the mixture — who is in an Oldies Club foster home in Gosport, Hampshire, waiting for someone to offer her a loving, permanent home. Frances settled at her foster home within a week. She arrived with her brother, Dermot, but his health deteriorated to the point where he sadly had to be put to sleep. Frances is such a lovely girl and has been very good in foster care. She isn’t a barker and is quiet.
Frances is happily living with her foster carer’s 13 year old Collie, and until recently she lived with her brother. A home with a calm older dog to show Frances the ropes and offer her reassurance and company would be perfect. Frances hasn’t shown any interest in cats. Frances would be fine to live with well-trained, kind children aged 8 years plus. She loves being a lapdog. She loves people and other dogs. She will chase squirrels and pigeons in the garden.
She’s not keen on being petted on her head and she’s frightened of small children. She can be timid and shy until she trusts you, but once you have her trust she is a very loving dog. She’s never aggressive, just submissive. She is being fostered in a busy family household. She sleeps a lot during the day, particularly after a walk. She will come to you for affection and will take herself off for quiet time when she wants it. Frances would like to live with another calm older dog.
Frances is neutered, vaccinated, microchipped and has been wormed and flea treated. She has had a dental and needed to have 10 teeth removed. She has no current health issues and isn’t taking any medication.
