Sweet senior Frankie (11 years old) has come a long way since she arrived in Gerdy’s care. This gorgeous 15 lb. Bichon has been through a lot in her years, and was recently surrendered by her life-long humans who could did not afford the way overdue medical intervention she required. Frankie has spent the last few months in foster care healing, and happily her health is now under control.

This feisty lady is a pretty active, playful and joyful ball of fur that equally enjoys rolling around in the snow to spending time relaxing in the comfort of her doggy bed. Her foster family has found that after a few weeks spent with her she has become increasingly attached to them and now wants to be in close proximity. As a result she is getting protective of them and their space.

Ideally, Frankie would need an experienced home with parents who feel comfortable setting a consistent routine with ground rules to follow and who have a flexible work schedule, or are home full-time. Frankie doesn’t love being left alone, and can be vocal, but never destructive. She is completely house trained and knows how to use a pee pad if needed.

In the beginning she had a hard time adjusting to the foster home, so, her new family will have to have the patience to give her time to adjust yet again. Frankie has some food allergies and
requires hypo-allergenic food and needs ointment daily in her eyes. Her new family will have to be comfortable administering her eye meds, giving that she can be difficult about it. Overall, she is a very quirky, affectionate and cute dog that loves being around the people she cares about. She’s not a big fan of her large breed foster brother, but might enjoy the company of a smaller sibling, one that won’t mind her bossy ways.

OK with cats. No kids, no apartments or condos (unless perfectly soundproofed!).
