Hi! My name is Frankie Franklin Frankfurter, or Frankie for short! I am a 5 year old applehead Chihuahua boy. My first family dumped me at a scary place called “the shelter”. I was very frightened there, especially when I heard they were going to put me “to sleep”....forever.......But thank God for my foster mama! She saw potential in me and saved me in the nick of time.

I am a bit barrel-chested and just a gorgeous shade of chocolate. I love to cuddle and exchange affections, preferably with women. My foster mama says I am a true ladies man!

I do great with other dogs as well as cats, but I am not what you would call playful, so I would do well in a home with other dogs or even as an only doggie in a home where my people are home most of the time.

I have a big crush on my foster mom’s teenaged daughter and she lets me sleep with her every night. I long for a loving forever home of my very own where I can cuddle and be loved on and feel like I’m doing my job as a loverboy!

Do you have room in your heart and your home for a chivalrous guy like me? The blessing will be mutual indeed! I promise to love you and make you smile every day with lots of wags and kisses.

To apply for me, please e-mail for an application.

**An excellent vet reference is required.**


About Our Rescue Group...

Canine Compassion is a specialized rescue group of volunteers dedicated to the medical and behavioral needs of each dog we take in. Our members are located throughout the greater Houston, Texas area.

The dogs this group takes in are fostered in our homes. They are loved just like our own dogs because they are our dogs until we determine the best match for a dog’s unique personality, size, and energy level.

As soon as a dog is rescued by us, they are immediately seen by one of our vets. All medical needs are addressed ASAP. Every dog is altered (spayed or neutered), heartworm tested (treated if positive), and tested for parasites.

We put our dogs on heartworm preventative and flea preventative. Medical care is kept current for every dog. Our dogs are groomed on a regular basis, socialized with people, other dogs and tested for cat tolerance as well.

Come Meet Our Pets...

As a “Foster Only” rescue, we operate by keeping the fostered dogs in homes only. There is no location to “come view” our dogs. Arrangements are made for approved applicants to meet with the dog they have applied to adopt.

Our Adoption Process...

Please e-mail us at to ask us for an application for the specific dog you are interested in meeting and / or adopting.

Once an application is received, the vet's reference is checked. A home visit by one of our volunteers is also required.

The final step is the signing of the adoption contract. The adopters are required to make an appointment with their vet for a "meet and greet" just to establish the new dog with their own vet.

We will only place our dogs with the people who we determine to best match our dogs’ sizes, personalities, and energy levels.

Adoption fees vary depending on the amount of the veterinary care that was required to get the dog to an adoptable state.
