About Frankie

Hi there, my name is Frankie. I am a sweet and very handsome boy at Five Acres who is looking for an understanding, patient, and loving forever family. I was adopted from Five Acres in April of 2017. When I was first here at the shelter, I was the happiest boy in the world. I did play groups with other dogs, I loved to cuddle with people, and I had a heart full of love and trust.  When my last family returned me in November of 2018, I was crushed. Everything changed for me. I was so upset to be back in the shelter that I took it out on all my friends here. I didn’t want to be in a cage, I didn’t want any treats, and I didn’t trust anyone. I’ll be honest, I was pretty spicy with my friends here at the shelter when I first got back. It took a long time for me to realize I could trust the people here and that they just wanted to show me love and help me feel safe. I’ve been through a lot of changes in my life, and because of that I get very lonely, scared, and upset when I’m left alone. My perfect family would be an all adult or single adult home. I would prefer to be your only child (human or dog) so I can get all the love and dedication I deserve. I’m also not a huge fan of kids. They just stress me out, which I think a lot of people can relate to. My perfect human would be kind but assertive. I need someone who will put me in my place when I need to take a chill pill. I would love to have a forever friend who doesn’t leave me by myself often, because being alone makes me feel like I am being abandoned all over again.  I think I might enjoy exploring the country with someone who drives a truck. I love seeing new places and I would love always being by your side! There are also some other very important things you should know about me. I love fetch. I heckin’ love it. If you hold one end of a rope and let me hold the other end, I’ll let you lift me off the ground and spin me in circles. It makes me feel like I can fly! I also LOVE treats. I am very smart (sometimes too smart for my own good) and I know sit, stay, heel, lay down, and much more! If you are interested in being my forever home, you can come into Five Acres and talk to my friends about if I would be a good fit for you.
