This little guy is beyond cute and also as sweet as can be. Franklin is one of 11 dogs who were abandoned on a farm over the last couple of years. While the owner of the property did his best to care for all of them, they were all living in an outdoor pen. Now that the property is for sale, the dogs needed to leave so all of them made the trip to Canine Lifeline so they could enjoy life in a foster home while searching for permanent new homes. Franklin is an adorable 2 year-old who looks to be a mix of Beagle and Doxie. Even though he’s full-grown, he has a puppy face. He gets along great with other dogs and has been very friendly with all people that he meets. Walking on a leash is still a fairly new experience for Franklin but he’s beginning to understand how much fun it is to go for a walk and enjoy all the new scents. Franklin had a bath recently and it’s likely that was his first ever experience in the tub so he was understandly frightened. He came through it like a trooper though but it’s likely that other new experiences may be a little scary for him as he gets used to life outside of a pen. Franklin has done well with crate-training in his foster home so with some continued positive direction from his new family, should soon have the house rules mastered. Franklin weighs about 15 pounds and his adoption fee is $250. He’s neutered, heartworm negative and on monthly preventative, up to date on vaccinations including bivalent canine influenza, wormed, on flea and tick preventative, and microchipped. As part of the adoption process, all adopters must commit to a two-week adjustment period to make sure it’s a great match before the adoption is finalized.
