Young lad Frankie survived life on the streets as a puppy and has become one of the friendliest dogs

Frankie is lucky to be alive. He was one of seven tiny puppies found at just 4 weeks old all alone on the streets of Nidge, a notoriously un-dog-friendly village in Turkey in the middle of Winter.

Such a handsome lad!

It is thought their Mum must have gone off to search for food – a hard commodity to come by for the dogs of Nidge – but for whatever reason she didn’t or couldn’t return. Animal volunteers could not stand by any longer, they had to step in to help the puppies or they wouldn’t have survived much longer.

They were initially taken to one of our Foster Carers until space became available at our Halfway House Animal Sanctuary. The have all grown into the most beautiful of dogs, each with their own particular character.

Frankie just wants to be loved and to give love!

The thing about Frankie is he’s a people dog – He just loves his humans. He may be a little timid to begin with but once he gets to know you that’s it, he just wants to be loved and stroked. He’s a total hugger!

Frankie is full of energy and loves to play chase with his siblings and will need plenty of exercise. He will be best suited to someone with lots of time to give him, someone who will put in the effort to give him the ongoing training he will require. That person will reap the rewards of a wonderful, strong bond from a very loyal dog.

Having a drink and a rest from playing with his siblings

Frankie walks well on the lead but would benefit from a good fitting ‘Y’ harness. He will wait on command and is great with food. Once an adoption is imminent he will move into a home environment where he will become accustomed to the sounds and smells of home life. Frankie is a handsome large mixed-breed dog, tall and slim with a short haired white, fawn coat with a black and white mask who weighs around 30kg.

This super-affectionate boy will make someone very happy – could it be you?
