A SECURE FENCED YARD IS REQUIRED
My name is Frankie, and I came into KC Sheltie Rescue through no fault of my own. I am quite shy and very fearful of men. At 3 years old, I weigh 30 lbs., so I am a larger Sheltie boy. I get along well with other dogs and cats, and love playing with my Collie roommate in my foster home. My house manners are perfect as I am a quiet companion, house trained and come when called. Once trust was established with my foster Mom, I rewarded myself for my good behavior by jumping into her soft bed, where I can enjoy a relaxing snooze each night (it sure beats a dog bed!).
My perfect home needs to be a quiet place with a patient owner. Too much noise and activity will stress me out and throw me into panic mode. A female only household would be ideal, as well as a friendly, confident canine roommate.
My beautiful dark sable/white coat is extremely thick and will require regular, weekly brushing. I am eager and willing to love but the trust must be earned.
Only local (KC area) placement will be considered for Frankie.
