Meet Frank Junior!

Meet Frank Junior, the resilient pup who’s overcome the odds to find his place in the world!

Three years ago, Frank Junior entered the world as part of a bustling litter of 10 puppies. Born into uncertainty, his mother and 7 of her puppies, were lucky to find his way to a rescue where he was given a chance at a brighter future. But fate had more challenges in store for him, and in May 2024, he found himself facing euthanasia at a local shelter through no fault of his own.

With less than 12 hours to spare, Frank Junior was whisked away from danger by a compassionate soul who recognized his potential for love and happiness. And as fate would have it, his rescuer turned out to be none other than the adopter of his biological mother, Franky. It was a twist of fate that would shape Frank Junior’s future in ways he never could have imagined.

Affectionately renamed after his beloved mom, Franky, Frank Junior quickly proved himself to be a chip off the old block. With his striking resemblance to Franky, both in appearance and spirit, it was clear that he was destined to follow in her paw prints.

Initially, Junior was overwhelmed and withdrawn, struggling to trust his new foster humans. But with patience, understanding, and plenty of TLC, he slowly began to emerge from his shell. Today, he’s a shining example of resilience, thriving on love and affection from those around him.

Under 40 pounds, Junior is the perfect size for cuddling up on the couch or embarking on outdoor adventures. He’s a certified love bug, showering his favorite humans with kisses and snuggles whenever he gets the chance. And when it comes to playtime, Junior is always ready for action, especially if it involves romping around with his canine companions.

Junior is potty trained, crate trained, and ready to go!

With a heritage that’s as diverse as his personality, Junior is a unique blend of Bulldog, Chihuahua, American Bully, Pittie, and Staffy. But above all, he’s a testament to the power of love and second chances. Whether you’re looking for a napping buddy, an adventure partner, or simply a loyal friend, Frank Junior is ready to steal your heart and become your forever companion.
