Facts about Frankie

Here’s Frankie! three years old and 67 pounds of handsome, muscular, goofy and loving guy. A DNA test confirmed that Frankie is a mix of three breeds: American Bulldog, Dalmatian and Staffordshire Terrier. His temperament most closely matches that of the American Bulldog.

Frankie was a stray pup on the streets of Oakland when he was picked up and brought to the Oakland shelter. He had a severe case of demodex mange and was in immediate danger of euthanasia unless a rescue organization could take him. Dusty Paws pulled Frankie, placed him in a foster home and completed the long process of getting his mange all cleared up.

Frankie is a smart boy, very trainable - a problem solver who learns quickly. He is a high energy dog who needs a lot of exercise. He loves to play chase and catch tennis balls. The person who adopts Frankie should be an experienced dog person who is willing to work with him. Although he is currently fostering with a trainer who has other large dogs in the house, Frankie is not always good with other dogs and should be your only pet. Ten free training sessions are offered to the person who adopts him.

Frankie is very affectionate and loving, good with men, women and older children: please note his enthusiasm/activity level is too high for small children or smaller animals. He is house trained and crate trained. He is leash trained with a gentle leader and knows basic obedience commands.

Frankie has his own Facebook page: Watch a video of him practicing his recall. Frankie’s birth day is estimated at 9/4/13 – always good to know when to throw a party!

About Dusty Paws Rescue, Inc.

About Our Rescue Group...

We are a small group of volunteers whose mission is to save abandoned, neglected and/or abused animals by placing them into permanent, safe, stable and caring new homes. All of us have experience with volunteering in shelters and continue to volunteer.

We do not mind driving to do a home visit nor do we mind taking the time to go anywhere to look at a potential needy animal who needs to be saved from any situation, either in a shelter or in a home. We do take owner surrenders and have an owner assist program but most of our animals come from shelters.

We hate to see any animal suffer and this is why we do this.

Our Adoption Process...

Our process to adopt is as follows: An application form is completed and submitted at which time we will contact the applicant within 24 hours and discuss the animal they are interested in and make an appointment to meet or give them the date of the next adoption showcase. The entire family should meet along with any resident animals, if possible. Once that is done and it seems like a good fit, a home visit is required at which time we can leave the animal for a required sleepover period of approximately 10-14 days and a Sleepover Agreement is then signed; if that works out then we can proceed with adoption. Our adoption fee is $300 for dogs, $100 for cats, $350 for puppies under one year of age and $50 is refunded upon receipt of a Certificate of Completion of Training from a certified training facility/trainer for a puppy adoption. At any given time after the adoption, Dusty Paws Rescue will accept back into our program the adopted animal if it doesn't work out.
