Franklin was a stray at the Harbor Shelter before making his way to us. Franklin is a gentle giant; our staff says he looks like a cartoon character and has a charming smile. He adores attention from people and although arthritic in the hind-end, he'll do all he can to make his way to you for some love. He enjoys a good head and back scratch and seems most content just laying at your feet. He's good with other dogs, however, he's not always a fan of sharing his bed. Franklin is a mellow guy until mealtime, at which point he lets loose all of his anticipation. Since he can be overly excited about his food, it's best that he be fed separate from other dogs. We feel he'd probably do best in a less-active home where he could be the only apple of his humans' eye.
