Frankie – 1 year old male Staffordshire Bull Terrier cross Whippet

Frankie is a small, one year old Staffordshire Bull Terrier cross Whippet. Frankie is in a foster home, where he is proving to be the perfect house-guest! He is housetrained and will go and sit at the door when he needs to go outside. He loves people but is also content spending time on his own while his foster mum is at work in the mornings. Funtime Frankie loves to play, especially with his ball, and he never tires of having it thrown for him. He’s even learnt to return the ball and drop it. He’s a clever boy, and he learns very fast. He learnt to ‘sit’, ‘lie’, ‘wait’ and do ‘high five’ in exchange for a treat in an instant! He has been attending training classes, learning to be the model doggie citizen!

Frankie loves his walks and need two decent ones a day (about an hour each). He’s friendly with the dogs he meets out on walks as well as with the 3 greyhounds in his foster home. He’s had play-dates with other dogs and got on really well with them too. He hasn’t been properly cat tested, so it’s uncertain whether he’d be okay to live with a cat, but from his reaction to cats he sees out on walks we think maybe not. Frankie is incredibly cuddly and affectionate, and he loves to have his tummy rubbed! He’d make someone a lovely, loyal pal.

Frankie is doing really well in his foster home, and his foster mum and dad are very fond of him, but he needs a forever home, where he can continue to blossom. Potential adopters should remember that Frankie is only a youngster and be prepared to continue with his training. He will need a secure garden and would be best rehomed with children no younger than 10 years. Frankie is neutered, micro-chipped and fully vaccinated.

A homecheck and adoption donation applies. Frankie also has his own facebook page ‘Hey Frankie’, where you can see lots more pictures and videos of the adorable pup in his foster home.
