Barks and Meows Rescue introduces Frankie. He is one of 7 puppies born to Mommy Venus, sadly with only himself and his brother Avalon surviving. Mom is a beagle but we do not know who the father is as she was already pregnant when we pulled her from the shelter. When fully grown, Frankie will be under 30lb and have a medium soft hair coat. Mommy Venus weighs 20lb.
Frankie is a real charmer. He loves to hug, and give kisses and you can cradle him in your arms like a baby. Frankie loves attention from his foster family. His personality and demeanor are both gentle and enduring to all who meet him. Frankie is currently eating Royal Canine small-breed puppy food. He is paper trained and will learn quickly to go outside now that he is vaccinated. He tends to get warm easily so does enjoy the air conditioning. His Mommy Venus and brother Avalon, play together all the time. She is a fantastic Mom and has taught them well how to play nice and not to eat out of her food bowl if she is eating. She is extremely affectionate as well. Frankie enjoys playing with smaller size toys and stuffies. He is not bad in the bathtub, just whines a bit. Frankie rides well in the vehicle and doesn't get carsick. He is paper trained.
The ideal home for Frankie is one where there is another resident dog. Hounds do so much better in a home with another dog as they are pack oriented. He will require a fully fenced yard as hounds will follow their nose regardless of whether or not they are bonded to their family members or not.
On June 17, he had his first set of vaccines. He is now microchipped. He weighed 3.8kg. They have been dewormed every two weeks since birth
A fully fenced yard with another socialized canine is mandatory to apply to adopt our Frankie.
