Frankie is available at Wood Green in Cambridgeshire.


Frankie is a very bright and fun loving dog with bags of character and energy. He is looking for a training minded home to help see him through his adolescent months with owners who will enjoy being a part of that process. For your effort you’ll be rewarded with an intelligent, and very affectionate dog to be around. Frankie will be best in an adult only environment and will need to be the only pet in the home. He will need some training before being left home alone.

Frankie is incredibly intelligent and learns tricks in a matter of minutes, his intelligence has also got him into trouble. Frankie was rehomed but came back to us a week later for over arousal issues, which including grabbing at clothing when too excited during play. Frankie must have secure 6ft fencing to allow him his off lead play time. Frankie will likely need owners who are around most of the time initially to help teach him to settle when he is home alone, as he did have toileting accidents in the home when he was left by himself for a short period. Frankie was allowed on the sofa but was a little reluctant to get off when asked, Frankie should be taught to get off when asked using treats or toys to prevent any guarding developing.

In his most recent home, Frankie was placed almost immediately into a doggy day care but found this far to over arousing and ended up inappropriately grabbing a dog while there. Frankie does not know how to moderate his behaviour around other dogs when off-lead. In his most recent home Frankie did jump towards a dog when out on a walk so he should be walked on a head halti to give you better control as he can be strong. Frankie has learnt to walk with and meet other dogs politely on lead and would be fine having calm walking buddies but should not be let off-lead around dogs at this time.

Frankie knows ‘sit’ ‘down’ and ‘wait’, ‘spin’ anticlockwise, ‘twist’ clockwise, both paws, roll over, crawl, hand touch (with his nose), and the list goes on! He really is super trainable and intelligent! He does these very well during impulse control training and will sit and wait before he has his dinner. All these things teach him about self-control and good manners. Frankie has travelled well in the car but would need a seat guard or a harness to prevent him jumping around. Frankie also enjoys digging so would appreciate a sensory area set up for him such as a patch of earth in the garden or a sand pit to allow him to do this in an appropriate way. Frankie once chased a glove being blown by the wind into a road by mistake as he thought it was a toy, this further justifies walking him on a head collar where you have much better control in case this happens! Frankie would sometimes take items that he thought were toys, including slippers and cushions so please be vigilant about leaving items that could easily be mistaken for toys out.
