Sweet Franklin is a Michael Phelps wannabe! He adores swimming and is fearless in the water. He is also a member of our RuffTail Runners group, where he gets to join our volunteer runners for strolls on the Lady Bird trail. Looking for an all-around good hiking mate? Look no further! His paws were made for walkin', and he will be right by your side for new adventures for the small price of a bowl of iced water.

Franklin has started to gather a following at the shelter. Recently, he was invited on a sleepover to a volunteer's home, where he was a gentleman; no begging for food, no getting on furniture and no potty accidents. He is very obedient and well-behaved and can sit on command, so we know he has some training in his past.

Franklin seems like a dog who will bond closely with his family; he quietly allows pets and grooming of his gorgeous coat while probably thinking "oh, I'm so lucky to have you, please don't stop".

Come on down and check out this handsome ball of fluff. It'll be love at first sight.
