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.
