Frankie, an incredibly sweet senior dog, is a very social guy. He enjoys short walks, however at his age, he is also content to hang out and cuddle all day. True to the Basset Hound in his mix, Frankie is very food motivated and will follow his nose – so be sure to have treats on hand, or in pocket. Frankie has separation anxiety, but this really just means he will be stuck to you like the velcro dog he is.

Frankie’s Personality

He is a cuddle bug! He just wants to be next to his human and get pets. He is a senior so doesn’t require lots for walking but does enjoy being out in the yard and sunbathing. He enjoys sleeping in the bed. He likes to meet any other human on walks. He is ok with other dogs but usually doesn’t like them coming into his home. He’s been around cats before and is ok with that. He has not been exposed much to small children. He would do well with someone who is retired or works part time and specific hours. He is also very motivated by food.

Why is Frankie Being Rehomed?

I have 2 senior dogs. (The other is 12 and is actually Frankie’s dad). I have had both dogs since they were puppies. They are both extremely cuddly and affectionate. However they both want to be Alpha at times and both want to be cuddled and I can’t always do that. My schedule changes depending on how many medical appointments I have to go to as well.
