Frankie is the definition of a gentle giant. He is a very LARGE dog that can be vocal when meeting strangers. To some his bark may be intimating and he does tend to bark at a lot of different things, sometimes we think it’s just so he can hear his own voice! His ideal home would be rural or a place with a nice large yard for him and living as a single dog.Frankie does not like other large or medium sized dogs but has lived with small breeds in the past so could possibly adapt to having another dog companion with proper slow introductions.
Frankie enjoys going for walks and outings with his guardian. With that being said Frankie also enjoys curling up on his comfy bed and getting belly rubs. He loves to be around his people so can sometimes get anxious when left alone. Frankie would be best suited in a house with older children due to his size, and would probably do best as an only pet. However, with proper slow introductions he could possibly learn to adapt to having a furry companion.
