ADOPTION APPLICTAION: http://pregnantdogrescue.org/dog-adoption-application/
Frankie is a 1yr old male Chihuahua mix who is 14lbs. He is neutered and fully vetted. Frankie is great with other dogs, cats and children.
Frankie was rescued from a local warehouse where he showed up looking for food last December along with him Mom, Fiona. They won his trust and were able to get him to us so he could be taken care of.
It is obvious the little guy was on his own for a while. You could tell when you touched him that he was not used to human contact as he stiffened up and flinched. He was also not used to a leash and mortally afraid of dog toys.
After just a few weeks in the foster home, however, Frankie has transformed into a completely different dog!
Now instead of running away he is trying to make friends with everybody he meets. You can tell he is a Chihuahua, friendly, sweet, loving and very playful. In the foster home he follows his foster family members around the house , comes when called and plays with all the family dogs and cats. He has discovered dog toys, too!
Frankie is rock solid housebroken. It is amazing for such a small dog who spent most of his life outside not to have a SINGLE accident at home.
Frankie is crate trained and doesn’t have any problem staying there for some time during the day. At night he would prefer to sleep with his people of course.
Frankie is very food motivated and can be taught tricks. He would stand on his hind legs for a treat.
Frankie is good on a leash. He would also enjoy a good run on a backyard or in the dog park. He is a young, active and playful little dog. He went on his first off-leash hike the other weekend and loved it!
Frankie has an adorable habit of giving us a gentle nudge with his nose. We’ve never seen any other dog doing it. He loves to be petted and scratched.
Judging by his progress, provided the right environment he will make a great pet.
We would recommend Frankie for a family with other friendly and confident dogs to set him a good example and be his playmates. ANOTHER OPTION FOR FRANKIE WOULD BE TO GET ADOPTED TOGETHER WITH HIS MOM FIONA, THEY ARE VERY GOOD TOGETHER. SHE IS A SWEET SUBMISSIVE DOG.
