About this J.P. Dog:
Frances, who I first spotted on Centre Street, is a rescued, 9-ish, “Chihuahua / Pomeranian / Alien” mix. She was named after St. Francis, the patron saint of animals. According to her humans, she “barks at birds, so there are more lessons to be learned before she adopts her namesake’s kindness toward sentient beings.” Frances may also answer to Little Buddy or Stubbs (after the animal painter George Stubbs).
“She was rescued about two years ago from the Boston City Shelter, in Roslindale, where she had been for about a month. She was very anxious when we adopted her, but has become much more relaxed and confident.” (Continue for three more Frances photos…) (more…)
