SWEETEST GIRL EVER!!! Frannie is a super loving and playful 6-month-old puppy. She hasn’t met a person or a dog she didn’t want to play with. She is good with many dogs at one time and dogs of all sizes. She initiates play and runs very fast!!! If a dog snaps at her she immediately submits and has never been aggressive. However, she is a puppy and quickly goes back to try to play again.

**Frannie will do best in a home with other active playful dogs. She does not like being left alone and has a bit of separation anxiety; however, when left with other dogs she is fine. Being a young puppy, Frannie needs lots of attention and activity.

With people she is beyond loving, she wants to be held, have her belly rubbed, or ears rubbed, or whatever attention any person will give her. She doesn’t play bite much and is super gentle.

Frannie is not food motivated which is good around other dogs but a little difficult to train her. She has been potty training and as of 7/31 has 3 perfect days. We haven’t tried to crate train her but she loves her little bed and if she has a chew stick (Whimzees) she will quietly chew until she falls asleep. Frannie does have a little separation anxiety so if left alone or ignored by people or dogs she will whine. As a puppy, she is moving all the time when she is not asleep. She wants to see everyone and everything. She doesn’t chew rugs, shoes, etc., but is tempted when she is left alone or feels punished. She is a jumper so she wants on the couch, human bed, out of the car, etc.

Frannie’s adoption fee of $350.00 includes her vet exam, age-appropriate vaccinations, worming, monthly heartworm prevention, flea treatment, spay, and microchip.

Please be aware that we rarely have information on our dogs being good with cats as most of our foster homes don’t have them.

Adoption decisions are based on the best overall match and not done on a first-come-first-serve basis.
