Facts about Frankie

  • Breed: German Shepherd Dog/Doberman Pinscher Mix
  • Color: Brown/Chocolate
  • Age: Young
  • Size: Med. 26-60 lbs (12-27 kg)
  • Sex: Female
Frankie wants nothing more than to stay by your side or jump up for a hug. She really enjoys the company of men and follows foster mom's boyfriend around the house and yard. We think a male adopter or family would be perfect. Frankie is a little shy and nervous at first so we would not recommend small children, nor a home with a lot of visitors. She does fine in her kennel when strangers visit and actually prefers it. She loves to play and lives to please! She has a high prey drive and has not been good with small dogs (but check her out in the video!), especially those lighter color fur. She has, however, done extremely well with small puppies. Frankie plays well with pretty much any medium size dog and larger. (Absolutely no kitties or small furries)

Frankie has been waiting for the right person or family to come along and adopt her for a long time and deserves a home where she can be loved like she craves. The only difficulty in placing Frankie is her desire and ability to GO...and keep going! - like bolting thru open gates/doors and she can jump a tall fence. Because of this, it's very important she goes to a home with a securely fenced yard or apartment with the understanding of her needs. She would absolutely LOVE to be a jogging buddy or to go on trail walks.

Are you looking for an active girl to add to your life? If so, then Frankie might just be your girl! Frankie is spayed, crate/housetrained, microchipped, up to date with shots, heartworm negative, and good with other dogs (but not good with cats). Apply to adopt Frankie at http://forgottendogs.org/adopt/application/ or email us at info.5thward@gmail.com. We hope to hear from you soon!

About Forgotten Dogs of the 5th Ward Project

About Our Rescue Group...

We rescue in an historical area of Houston called the 5th Ward. We founded Forgotten Dogs of the 5th Ward Project November of 2011 to address what we saw as an obvious need to help the many stray, abandoned, and neglected dogs we were seeing in there. We set up feeding stations and network and pull as many as we can when a foster home or no-kill rescue group says they can take them in. One of our goals is education and we provide residents with access to free spay/neuter and rabies vaccinations. In addition, we provide other vaccinations and worming in the field to strays that we can not immediately pick up. Since November 2011 we have grown in size and have rescued over 1,000 dogs, and a few cats, from the area. We are launching a program called Habitat for Hounds through which we will donate doghouses and blankets to residents for their dogs that are kept outside. We are a 501(c)3 non-profit organization, so all donations are tax-deductible.

Our Adoption Process...

You can find our adoption application online at http://forgottendogs.org/adopt/application/. Our adoption fees are $150 for adult dogs ages 2 and older and $175 for puppies up to 2 years old (plus an additional spay/neuter deposit on those that are too young at the time of adoption: $75 local, or $250 for long-distance adoptions). Long distance adoption transportation costs vary based on size/weight/breed of the individual dog being adopted. We have an adoption application and contract. All animals are spayed/neutered prior to adoption, if old enough, or, for young puppies, arrangements are made to have them spayed/neutered afterwards.
