Frankie has been very quiet for hours in his arrival kennel…He is a very young man, only eleven months of age….A Labrador mix, as dark as night. I open his door. Frankie looks at me with bright eyes and a welcoming smile…A good beginning to our time together. He is leashed in no time but walks with a little limp. His left foot is hurt and swollen.His belly is raw. He might have spent a night or two outside..His leg might have been stuck in a gate or a fence…A little shy at first, Frankie opens up very quickly. He does not look scared or unhappy. He seems on the contrary to really enjoy the company. He is a friendly young dog who likes to be petted, sits upon request and takes treats gently from my hand. He even poses for pictures without objecting. People come to say hello and Frankie accepts their caresses. . Frankie and I just met briefly. I need to see a little bit more of him, may be go around the block or throw him a ball if his foot gets better. Our time together, still, showed a very nice and beautiful youngster , healthy looking and well cared for and who would make most likely a very handsome , affectionate and pleasant forever best friend. Come and meet Frankie at the Manhattan Care Center.
A volunteer updates:
Now that he’s receiving pain medication for his injured leg Frankie is really letting his puppy flag fly! Though he’s not allowed to walk too far, we head for the yard with great enthusiasm where he begs me (via adorable little whines and hopping) to play with him. He already knows commands for come, sit and (almost) stay and waits quite politely as I drop a tennis ball for him to fetch. While he likes to chew, this good boy never guards and I can take it from his mouth with ease. Handsome, happy and a whole lot of fun, Frankie is a Lab lovers dream. Make both your dreams come true by welcoming him home today!
