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: https://www.facebook.com/frankieisawesomesauce. 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!
