Frank checking in from Atlanta, GA
Do you like cuddling, moonlit walks, and soulful eyes? Perhaps you’re just looking for a goofy, big-headed fishing buddy? Whatever you’re looking for, Frank is your dog. Frank was found on the side of the road in Jackson, Georgia, thin and with pressure sores from sleeping on the hard ground. He’s currently beefing up in a foster home in Atlanta, Georgia and loving every minute of it.
Frank is approximately two years old and weighs 80 pounds. He is still thin and needs to gain around ten more. He adores every human that he meets and will press into them affectionately and then roll over for belly rubs. Frank knows basic commands such as sit, down, and stay (but sometimes needs to be redirected with stay because he gets impatient). He is crate-trained and is excellent on a leash. Frank is vocal and will hilariously howl-whine when he’s not getting his way. He loves to play with toys, chew on bones, and play fetch.
Frank has mild hip dysplasia, but it doesn’t bother him at all–he runs, jumps, and plays just like any other dog. He is on glucosamine supplements for his joints and probably will never need surgery. Frank is good with children. However, due to his large size, Frank should always be supervised around smaller children, especially when he’s excited, because he could easily knock them over.
Frank would do best with an owner who teaches him boundaries. He likes some dogs and is unsure around others. He is doing fabulously with the French Bulldog in his foster home and has played well with other dogs. However, he can be reactive when a dog is aggressive towards him or runs up to him without warning. Frank would do best in a home with a “chill” dog who isn’t constantly in his face, at least in the beginning. Once he has been properly introduced to a dog, he seems to be fine and just wants to run around and play. Truly, he is a goofball at heart. His foster family is working with a professional trainer to get Frank more confident around all dogs and to teach him some more commands.
