He’s a big-time cuddle bunny!
Hi, guys! My name is Frankie, and I’m a 7-year-old Lab mix male, weighing in at 57 pounds. I’m a sweet and lovable guy who is already house-trained and potty-trained. I am fully crate trained too, and put myself in there at night too. Plus, I’ve already been neutered, I’m easily trainable and I hardly bark or make any noise. About leash training, I’m making great strides with my pawrents. I can get confrontational on-leash with bigger dogs. Continued positive reinforcement will help me in the long run. Do I sound like two paws up or what?
My backstory, however, isn’t the brightest. I was picked up from a Tijuana Costco last October in rough shape. Thankfully, though, TAP took me in just in time and nursed me back to health. I’m a proud TVT survivor, and I had a tumor in my sinus cavity at the time of my rescue, but that has since been successfully treated and cleared. There was a small hole where the tumor was, and I had palate repair surgery, and it was fixed! I also had some dental work done and I am a half-toothed monster who enjoys kibble. Rawrrrrr!
Now, let’s get to a little bit about me! I’m basically just an ol’ sweetheart who is loyal to the core. I love giving kisses, getting pets, belly scratches, and lying on top of you for some solid lovin’ as a lap dog. I’m also always smiling. My favorite activities include hikes, playing with other doggie friends, squeaky toys, and napping. I’m also a huge fan of walking. Show me a leash or my walking collar, and I’ll get super excited and start jumping around! I also do well in a crate when you leave, but if left outside of one, I do whine a bit and start exploring so that I can find you. I am quite good with small dogs both on and off leash, but I can get confrontational on-leash with bigger ones. Slow introduction will help with meeting them.
Because I love company so much, I’d prefer to be in a household who has someone at home most of the day or someone who works from home. I’ve been told that I’d make an excellent companion since I prefer to be in the same room as you. I would also enjoy having a small size doggie sibling or two since I love playing and being around other doggie friends. I still chase cats, but learning to be around them, and they may not like me too much. 😉 I have been around some kids, but because I have a habit of jumping up in excitement, keep an eye out.
