Update On Frankie!- He is available for Adoption.

Please read all of Frankie's bio before sending an email:

Where do I start with Frankie - he's perfect! This 4.5 year old boy is house broken, crate trained, and knows basic obedience commands. He is an active boy when outside but also LOVES to curl up to you on the couch or in bed. He is very relaxed when in the house and wants nothing more than to be with his people. He loves to play fetch or just run in the field. He enjoys going for hikes in the woods and in a very independent dog, not needy at all. He is good with other dogs as long as they do not challenge him but prefers people over other animals - he even ignores cats even when they try to swipe at him! He has been good with kids but we request no small children only because of his size (he has been around small children but doesn't realize he is 70 pounds and can bump into them and knock them over). We are requiring a fenced in yard for him because he likes to run so much - he deserves it.

Frank cam to our rescue when he was 8 weeks old and was adopted when he was 9 weeks old and has had the same owner ever since. He has moved to California and back and enjoyed ever minute of it! His owner recently had a baby and doesn't feel she has the time to devote to Frankie anymore so he is back with us. He listens better than some of my own dogs (on and off leash) and will follow you from room to room. This boy has been nothing but faithful and deserves a home that will keep him until his last days!

If interested in Frankie, or for more information on him, please email Jayme at RobertsRescue@aol.com

He is up to date on vaccines, heatworm negative and on prevention, and neutered. He did test postitive for lymes disease but has already finished his treatment and is doing well (he wasn't even showing signs of lymes disease) Recently (Sunday 3/2) Frankie injured his right hind leg while running. He partially tore his cruciate ligament or ACL, radiographs were taken and he is scheduled for surgery on 3/11. He is expected to make a full recovery and this will not be a problem for his future. He will have to rest for a few months while recovering (which basically means no free running) but will be back to his normal self in no time. Please do not let this be a factor in adopting Frank, if you would like to visit please let me know - once you meet this boy you will fall in love - EVERYONE does!!

UPDATE 3/11/08

Frankie had his TTA surgery today to correct his torn ACL ligament and did great. He will be recovering for a few weeks and is not allowed to free run for a few months but is still in high spirits and wagging his tail! He is still available for adoption at any time so please feel free to contact if you would like more information or have questions about this fabulous boy! This boy needs a foster home or better yet a forever home ASAP. Due to lack of foster homes he is being boarded at a vet clinic. More pictures and updates coming.

Please email Jayme for more information!
