found a new home!
Plenty of my friends are looking
for one too. Find a pet to adopt.
I am already neutered, housetrained, in need of an experienced adopter, up to date with shots, not good with kids, not good with dogs, and not good with cats.
Frankie is a 7 year old, male Pomeranian/Yorkshire Terrier mix that weighs approximately 10 lbs. He is neutered, his shots are up to date, he’s micro chipped and is house trained.
Frankie is a very sweet dog, but he does have fear and anxiety issues when put into situations he is uncomfortable with. We are looking for an experienced adult only home for him with no other dogs. Frankie will come to you when he wants affection. When he is resting he does not like to be bothered; he will growl if you try to wake him from his slumber. Sometimes Frankie just wants to be by himself and he will let you know when that time is, as he will go to his bed to rest, and it’s best to let him be at those times.
He welcomes strangers who come to your house like they are his best buddies, but then will go off and lay in his bed by himself. He will also greet you at the door when you return home as if you have been gone for months with lots of kisses and affection. Frankie loves to play fetch, tug of war and go for walks. If he has a special toy that he is chewing or playing with, he will sometimes growl or try to nip if you try to take it away from him. He is also very good in the car.
Frankie sleeps in his dog bed beside his human’s bed, and sleeps through the night with no issues. He is crate trained, but is currently not crated during the day. He is not destructive, but will bark when his humans leave the house. To avoid this stress his foster parents will ask him to sit, and give him a treat that he will take to his bed so he is distracted when they leave.
Frankie has come a long way in his foster home over the last few months and his sweetness far outweighs his fear and anxiety issues. However, he will need a patient and experienced owner who is committed to continue helping him to learn to trust, to learn more appropriate behaviors when he is anxious/afraid, and that his human is in charge and he is not.
