Baker's Info...

I am already neutered, up to date with shots, good with kids, good with dogs, and good with cats.

Baker's Story...

Baker is a ginormous 65lb, seven-month old puppy.  He is absolutely gorgeous and will be a very handsome boy once he's finished growing in about another year and a half.  He has flippers for paws and his foster Dad has nicknamed him "snowshoes" because he walks like he's wearing them. 

He is very rambunctious and plays well with dogs weighing more than 40lbs.  He does fine with smaller dogs who are confident and can hold their own, but he has absolutely no idea how big he is.  His exuberance can be a bit much for senior adults and children.

He will require a great deal of training and exercise and will not be an easy dog but he is very willing to learn.  He is almost housebroken and crate trained, is learning to walk well on a leash and has gotten started on basic manners.  He will make an active person and/or family a great pet, but he's going to need a lot of patience, persistence and endurance.

Baker's adoption fee is $250 and includes neuter, vaccinations, veterinary wellness visit and microchip.

Why Adoption is a Great Option

Baker, a Franklin Rhodesian Ridgeback dog was adopted! Here's how you can benefit by looking at adoption as an option to buying a Rhodesian Ridgeback for sale in Franklin, or seeking a Rhodesian Ridgeback dog from a breeder in Franklin.

  1. Rescues and shelter volunteers in Franklin already know the personality and tendencies of their pets. This means they can match you with the right pet. That will makes it much easier transition to owning a pet for yourself and your new pet.
  2. On average adoption fees are much less than you'd pay a Franklin breeder, or pet store. Plus most often rescue pets have already been to the veterinarian for a check-up, had a round of vaccinations, and are spayed or neutered. That is a lot of savings!
  3. You will become a hero, and give a needy dog or cat a loving home. In fact, there are even Rhodesian Ridgeback breeders who help with Rhodesian Ridgeback rescue. One puppy or kitten adopted in Franklin paves the way for another one to be saved.
