This BIG but regal goof has requested to formally be called Franklin Alexander the Great but once you’re in his good books, FRANK, Frankie or even Frank the Tank is fine! FRANK is initially pretty resistant to change and can take a few days to settle into a new situation but once he does he’s a loving, cuddly, obedient boy who just wants to be loved in return. He can be pretty demanding of attention and doesn’t really realize his size. He does tend to paw at you for attention which can be unintentionally a bit rough so he should be encouraged to follow some boundaries in the home. If he’s not pawing at you for attention he’s literally moo-ing like a cow at you to let you know that he wants something, which is pretty cute. As a result of his size we don’t think he should be placed in a home with young children. Additionally, people will need to understand that he is very strong on leash so will require someone who can handle all 97 lbs of this dude. He’s been doing much better on a gentle leader and making sure to incorporate play throughout the day so that he’s not too hyper at walk time is perfect. FRANK is very playful and loves running around the backyard. He also absolutely adores water either swimming or just chasing the hose spray around the yard. He is crated when his people are out of the house but it not crated at night as he prefers to sleep on a comfy dog bed near where you sleep. Basically FRANK’s ideal life consists of playtime outside, snuggles with his favourite people, naps, movie nights with his pals and gourmet meals in his crate. He wouldn’t enjoy spending too much time alone as he’s very much a companion dog. It takes him a time to settle in his crate alone. FRANK is unsure when meeting other dogs initially but can definitely co-exist very comfortably after a proper intro. He would actually like a second dog in the home to keep him company as long as there are still enough people cuddles to go around. Like 90% cuddles for FRANK and 10% for the other dog would be perfect… just kidding! He hasn’t been tested with cats. HOW CAN YOU SAY NO TO THIS SMILE?? Apply to adopt this guy!
