Franklin is like a campfire: calm when left alone but full of life and spirit when someone gives him attention! He is currently in foster and they can promise you: he will light up your life. He is great with other dogs and eager to play with everyone he sees. You might get a toy or two dropped in your lap to get you to play, and he especially loves fetch and tug-of-war. He has been building up an impressive pile of tennis balls on his foster family's back porch. Don't let his size and energy fool you, he is a cuddle bug and will use every chance he can to get close to you!

Franklin is very polite and will let you know he needs to go out by getting your attention or gently tapping the door with his nose. He is also a great listener and will obey 'sit' and 'stay' commands. Treats are a great source of motivation for him and he is eager to please, as he focuses intently in training sessions with his foster family and is constantly working on new skills.

If you're looking for a loving companion or a dog to play with for hours on end, come meet Franklin!
