Frankie is an ADORABLE, SWEET, LOVING, LOYAL, 8 lb, Mini Dachshund.
He was rescued from a hoarding situation and is looking for someone to love.
He is a SPECIAL NEEDS doggie.
He has megaesophagus.
He has been tested to see if he has Myasthenia Gravis, he does not.
Frankie is currently in a foster home and doing very well. He needs someone that has the time to commit to his feeding routine.
He is fed 2 to 4 times a day, a special diet, and must be held or propped in a vertical position to eat and then remain vertical for 20 mins. in order for his food to move to his stomach.
We are looking into other options and tests for Frankie, but for now he is a happy boy and can have a very happy normal life.
