Frankie

2yr old Male Husky Mix

Franco, aka “Frankie” came to us from the kill list at Maricopa County Animal Care and Control – and sadly the only reason that he ended up here is because he was never taught to walk on a leash. He has had to be carried in most of his movements outside of the home so far, and his adopter must be prepared to work with him on continued leash training.

Frankie takes a little bit to warm up to new pups and may give a warning grumble or two if they are in his face too much at first, but once he gets comfortable he wants to be best friends! He loves to play and is always seeking attention and affection.

When outside the home, he still freezes when he gets scared, so he will need continued work on socialization – or a home where he can be comfy as a homebody, though ideally teaching him to be more comfortable around new things will be best for him in the long run.

Frankie’s foster believes he would be ok with kids of all ages, though we would definitely assess this in a meet and greet to see how he does – he has no human aggression whatsoever, but kids might confuse him, so we want to be safe.

His foster reports that he is very mild-mannered for a husky and loves individual pets and love and will turn into a total ham, and cannot stress enough what a sweet boy he is.

This boy has so much love to give, and would love a family of his own! Please fill out an app to meet Franco.
