Franklin reminds us of a campfire: calm when left alone but full of life and spirit when someone gives him attention! He loves people and is looking for his new person - could it be you?

"If you're sitting on the couch long enough, Franklin will eventually either climb up to sleep next to you, or sit on the floor by you, stare at you and just rest a single paw on your lap or arm," says Franklin's previous owner. "Maybe he'll add the second paw. It's super endearing!"

- Franklin loves a good game of a fetch and collecting all his tennis balls into a pile in the backyard. Tug-o-war is another favorite! He'll often drop a toy in your lap to suggest a game.
- If you need to leave Franklin at home for a bit, no worries! He's pretty chill and will settle in for a nice, snuggly nap while he waits for you to get home. He also obeys sit and stay commands when you need him to listen.
- Franklin crosses his front paws when he lays down sometimes, giving him a very stately and serious look - not particularly fitting for his rather goofy personality!

If you're looking for a loving companion or a dog to play with for hours on end, come meet Franklin! He'll show you just how special he is.
Come meet your new best friend
