The heart warming story of Francis the dog (31 Photos)


  • JTK

    Feel Good Friday?

  • Alexander

    And that is why my dog is a rescue, I wanted to give him a better home than what he had and now my Puggle (Pug/Beagle) is a happy camper and is currently asleep next to me and he never leaves my wife or my side. I thin people should go to shelters if they can make the commitment and rescue a dog, their loyalty and love knows no bounds and they are natural anti depressants, to me dogs are the best companions ever.

    This dog is gorgeous and has an amazing inner strength! Whoever left him sucks and deserves no compassion!

    Thanks for the happy tears. And the rage at the ass wipes who left him that way. Chive On.

  • Jason

    Gotta get me another dog soon. RIP Clancy

    What an awesome dog! Francis obviously has the spirit of a Chiver.

  • Becca

    Aww – sweet Francis. Glad to see he made The Chive! He is from the Jackson, Mississippi area 🙂

    I am not a violent man. In fact, I feel bad after I step on a bug. But I salivate at an opportunity to get at someone that harms an animal or a child so that I can outright destroy them in a manner unbeknownst to even Michael Bay himself.

    I love dogs. Period. End of story. Dogs rule!

  • Vance

    I lost my beloved dog and best friend of almost 7 years on New Years Day
    I have been very upset over it ever since, but a story like this makes me smile. Glad to see Francis recover and beat the odds. Hes a lucky dog and I hope he lives a long and continuously happy life 🙂

    Love stories like this. I have 3 dogs I've gotten from a shelter and one I personally rescued off the street. As for the assholes who did this, they will get their own.
