My story

We present the absolute funniest, craziest, goofiest dog ever!
Meet Franklin.

Franklin is a silly, sweet, affectionate and active 2-year-old goofball of a dog. He loves playing with other dogs, playing with toys, cuddling with his humans and going on walks. Franklin especially loves to play with his big ball, pushing and chasing it all around the yard. Franklin will just about play with any toy or stick though. He playfully tosses chew sticks and toys in air and tries to catch them….and of course there are the puzzle toys and kongs. He loves to play with those too. Oh and did we mention Franklin loves food…. very treat motivated! This sweet and sensitive boy is already house trained and crate trained, and used to living indoors. He will make you laugh out loud with his funny antics and the hilarious ways he sleeps.

Franklin is very dog social and we’ve learned that he is most likely to succeed in a home with another dog to help him feel safe. Although Franklin adores his canine playmates, he is less certain of new people, and can take a long time to warm up. He will do best in a home where visitors are not a daily occurrence. He seems to lack experience in a variety of ways and can easily get surprised or startled by sudden movements or everyday sights and sounds. When around adult people he is familiar with, he is a typical lovable, playful boy. Loyal to his family. He is so goofy and silly and makes his foster family laugh every day! Franklin would love a family that can give him lots of love, attention and exercise.

Franklin is currently residing in a foster home. If you are interested in adopting this goofy boy please send an email to our foster team at to set up a meeting.
