If you're looking for a cuddle bunny, come meet Frank! This sweet boy is a couch potato who absolutely loves to cuddle with his human friends and doggie housemates. He's so happy to sit down with them for an evening TV show or a football game.

Frank is a shy pup who is nervous when first meeting new people, but it doesn't take him long to warm up to them, especially if they snuggle him a bit. He becomes very affectionate and even brings them one of his favorite stuffed animals. He also has some anxiety about things like car rides and vet visits, but bounces back when he's snuggled. Now in foster care, he's one of the most loyal dogs his foster has ever met, sitting and waiting for her to come home and greeting her with love and affection. He's also a gentle boy who lives with two dog buddies and gets along well with them.

Frank gets very excited to go on leash walks, pulling a little bit. Back home, he'll check to make sure his favorite stuffed animal toys are still around to play with. Then he'll cuddle with his people, gazing at them with his sweet puppy eyes. He's a smart boy who answers to "go to your room" and "come here." And he's a house-trained boy who does well when he's home alone, just waiting by the door for his foster to return.

Frank will do best in a large family to love him. He doesn't like being alone and would love to be taken on trips out of town. And he will like having dog buddies at home, too. Come meet him. You'll get such a cuddly boy!
