Breed: Luv-A-Bull Mix
Age: 4 Years Old
Sex: Spayed Female
Color: Grey & White

About Francine:
I’m a muscular bundle of fun! I love running and playing, especially if it involves chasing a tennis ball. I also love getting lots of pets and attention. I would absolutely love to attend training class to help me with my manners and to learn some of the basic things a dog should know! Did you know my adoption fee includes a nice discount to the Dakin training classes here in Springfield, Hadley or Leverett? We can go to school together! Also, my adoption fee is at a reduced price. Sometimes there are a lot of us luv-a-bulls waiting for a home, so we hope that might inspire someone to adopt us and discover what awesome dogs we can be. Ask a staff person to bring me out so we can say hello!
