Frankie sure does garner a lot of attention when he goes out and about because of his beautiful blue eyes and merle coat! He's quite the looker. He's a very special kid who's looking for an experienced dog owner who can work with his unique set of needs. Frankie is fully deaf and partially blind. So instead of communicating with him verbally we may give a thumbs up or a gentle pat to let him know he did a good job. Frankie can sometimes get frustrated or overly excited and we're working on teaching him how to appropriately handle those situations. An adult-only home that can continue this work with him will be ideal! Frankie enjoys going on walks with other dogs and he likes to play with dogs who match his play style. However he does need to be the only dog in the home since he's not a fan of sharing his toys or couch space with another dog. Frankie loves going on adventures, especially if there's water involved. But he can also be a couch potato who enjoys a good cuddle. Mostly Frankie just needs a family that can offer him patience and consistency to help him be his best self!
