Facts about Franky *Adoption Pending*

  • Color: Gray/Silver/Salt & Pepper - With White
  • Age: Young
  • Size: Large 61-100 lbs (28-45 kg)

This handsome guy is our Persian Prince Frankie! He was rescued from the streets of Iran where he’d become an internet sensation - he was cute and tiny, but completely hairless from a severe case of demodectic mange. Despite a large stray dog problem there, he stood out to locals and they arranged to get him to VAFA shelter. We are working with VAFA to place him because he’s cute as anything, but is all adolescent and needs the right home that understands puppy behaviour and how to deal with it.

Frankie chews a lot (his foster parents think he should be called Chewbacca) but prefers dog chew toys which is nice - though like most puppies, he can make mistakes and chew things he shouldn’t. He’s crate-trained but sometimes noisy in the crate - he’s settling fairly quickly in it in foster care. Frankie is an active guy who loves the outdoors and would love a place with a fenced yard so he can go and get his zoomies out frequently. He gets along with other dogs but has had a couple incidents in foster care and on a trial adoption where he’s gone after another dog in the presence of food. He can play rough with cats but can live with the right one. He’s still puppy mouthing, nipping, and counter/table-surfing - we’re working on all of that. He has a big huge heart and a nice disposition - he’s just a handful right now, in the midst of adolescence! With proper handling, he’s going to turn out to be a great adult; he is a quick study and has a good attitude, and likes to work for food. Due to his puppy behaviours he’s better matched with older or no kids. He would love an active family or person.

nb - Frankie recently had a small flare-up of demodex - this is probably in large part due to the stress of several moves recently. He is being medicated for that and also for giardia. It should be noted that demodex is a common skin mite, but when it causes problems, it’s due to an insufficient immune response from the dog, and while it’s not uncommon for young dogs to have localized demodex, it should be noted that this could recur even later on, if he’s under stress. Immune boosters would be a great idea for Frankie.

About Barlee's Angels Rescue Network

About Our Rescue Group...

Please see our website at for full information.

Barlee's Angels Rescue Network is a non-profit, all-breed animal rescue based in Guelph, Ontario, Canada. We are a group of volunteers dedicated to helping animals in need. We do this by taking in homeless animals, fostering them in the homes of our foster volunteers, tending to their veterinary needs, and adopting them into carefully screened homes. We work on any behavioral problems while they are in foster care as well as basic house manners, crate- and housetraining.

Barlee's Angels are usually abandoned, unwanted, abused or stray animals. These animals come primarily from shelters. Barlee's strongly supports responsible pet ownership and therefore will try to help people to keep their pets rather than accept the pet as a first option. As with all rescues, space is limited and if we can help some pet owners through the problems that are causing them to feel they must give up their pet, we can use that space for other animals in trouble.

Only if we are able to, Barlee's will accept an owner surrender into the rescue and rehoming program, but the pet must be vaccinated, altered, accompanied by all of it's possessions (eg bed, toys, blanket) and a surrender fee may be required to offset some of the substantial costs of caring for and rehoming an animal.

Barlee's provides foster care for our companion animals, evaluates temperament and personality, provides veterinary attention as necessary, spays or neuters and then matches the animal with a home that is suitable for that individual animal. This can often take months and it can be very costly. An adoption fee is charged for the pet and followups are ongoing to monitor the success of the placement. Wildlife are rehabilitated and released when possible.

Our Adoption Process...

Please see our website at for full information.

The adoption process for Barlee's Angels and for most rescues is a thorough process that involves an adoption application, reference checks, and discussion about the potential adoptive home, including a home visit. We appreciate your patience and understanding during this time - and we'd like to stress that this is a necessary part of our job. We feel that when we rescue an animal we have a responsibility to ensure that we place it in a home that is equipped and committed to caring for the pet for the rest of its' natural life.

Please understand that filling out an adoption application or complying with any of our approval procedures in no way guarantees the acceptance of an adoption application. We reserve the right to refuse an applicant for any reason, at our discretion. We also reserve the right to investigate for the purpose of verification information given in adoption applications, and not to disclose any such information revealed in such investigations.
