Super sweet and cuddly, Franklin is a year old, male, Toy Aussie – Chihuahua mix (12lbs) looking for his forever home.

Franklin can be reserved upon first meeting, especially men, and in new situations but once he decides someone is trustworthy he is the ultimate lap dog and snuggler. He is housebroken and used to a crate – however he has been trustworthy enough not to need to be crated in his foster home. Franklin is an excellent little watch dog and will alert his foster family to anything out of the ordinary, but quickly quiets down and is not the least bit “yappy”.

He has done well with canine, feline, and equine foster siblings of all sizes and loves playing with his Mini-Doxie foster sister and any willing felines – he is very respectful of kitties that do not want to be bothered. He enjoys romping around the back yard with his foster siblings, stealing their toys, and going on walks.

Due to his size, he does not require extensive exercise, but he is an active little boy that will need daily walks and play-time to keep him happy and healthy.

Franklin is neutered, micro-chipped, and up to date on all vaccinations.

Franklin is currently being fostered in Charlotte, NC.
