Meet Franky – a loveable big boy that loves to cuddle and go for walks!
Franky always greets his foster family with big wet kisses and tail wags at the door. He is happiest hanging out with his people doing whatever they do. Franky LOVES people. As long as you pet him, he is happy!
Franky is 8 years old but acts younger than his age. He likes to be active and is always ready to go for a walk. He needs at least one hour of physical activity per day to be stimulated. Amongst other things, Franky loves to cuddle, is a bit of a dancer and loves car rides. For an old dog, he still has some tricks (sit, give a paw) and is learning every day.
Franky can be vocal when visitors approach the property and he does bark at strange sounds. But Franky is crate trained and house trained and is non-destructive. He has no issues sleeping at night and would love to sneak up on to the couch, if you let him! He also loves car rides and likes to hang his head out the window to sniff all the smells.
Franky can be reactive to new dogs, especially males, which is why we recommend he finds a home where he can be the only dog. Which means Franky will be free to lap up all the attention he can get! An owner willing to work with Franky on his reactivity is a must – the behaviour is manageable with consistency and a firm owner. Franky is also a strong boy, and so he does currently pull on his leash. More training in this would also be beneficial for Franky.
Overall, Franky’s ideal home is one that is active and detached. He would prefer someone who can be home more often than not as he loves to be with people, but this isn’t essential. If he can find it, Franky would also love somewhere with a yard to run around in, but again, this isn’t essential.
Could this cutie be the one for you? His puppy eyes will melt your heart!
