Franco came from Kansas and was given up by a man who had several pets he had to find homes for because he had to go into assisted living. He found homes for all but Franco. Maybe because Franco was 17 years old or maybe because he was deaf, but no one could possibly know what a sweet, sweet dog he was until being blessed with the chance to live with him. Even at 18, he was still sitting up pretty.
Franco passed March 20, 2007 from congestive heart failure. His foster mom in Oklahoma adopted and adored him until the very end.
