Wayside Waifs takes in Frenchie the pink puppy

KANSAS CITY, Mo. — The staff at Wayside Waifs got a surprise when a  pink puppy made its way into the shelter Wednesday.

Wayside Waifs is calling the three-month old Frenchie. The name alludes to the popular “Grease” character who has pink hair.

Spokesperson Casey Waugh said staff members at Wayside Waifs have tried to remove the hair dye from Frenchie’s fur, but it will not come off.

In addition to pink fur, Frenchie had pink nail caps. Waugh says the caps are similar to caps that are put on cats’ nails to eliminate scratches.
