Franky (RADAR Dog Rescue, South Yorrkshire)


Please help Franky by sharing this page!

Franky is a soppy, lollopy Lurcher boy (Greyhound x Bullbreed) of at least 7 years, in the care of RADAR Dog Rescue in Rotherham, South Yorkshire. He wants an adult only home with no cats but could possibly live with another friendly dog about the same size as him…

…i.e. the perfect size for slobbery kisses!

Franky loves a good run around and likes playing ball games too.

He’s a pleasure to take out for walks as he gets on with most other dogs and really relishes the fun of outdoor adventuring with his human friends.

Franky is believed to have been a working dog in the past and has been waiting in kennels for a long time now. It’s thought he’s never had a proper home!

Everyone at the rescue loves him because he’s such a loving boy.

Sadly, not many people can see past first impressions and when a stranger approaches his kennel, Franky will bark to tell them they’d better be nice!

He needs someone capable of seeing past this to the sweet and obedient boy he really is. Someone willing and able to come and visit him for lovely walkies and get to know him. He’ll be thrilled to go out with you, whatever the weather!

Franky is such an affectionate, bright boy that it’s high time someone worthy of him came along. He’ll need an experienced owner and will make the most doting, cheerful best friend you could hope for!

There are a few nice video clips of Franky on the rescue’s Facebook page:
