I have been at the shelter since Sep 21, 2011.

I am usually not so "taken" by white dogs or cats but Frankie is different. He is a wiggely worm in his cage , his tail wagging like a window wiper in heavy rain. I would expect this super elegant all white boy with aqua marine eyes to be less of a clown..... When I say all white... wrong...he has a black ring at the base of his tail....Frankie does not seem to hear but he responds well to hand and body commands. He is a pretty good walker and is most likely housetrained. Frankie is so excited to see other dogs, mostly those his size. He wants so much to play. Frankie does not understand that the shelter is not a doggie playground.. Even sign language would not reason Frankie... Frankie is quite a sweet boy. We can offer him at least human companionship. He is a good trooper and settles for a run after the ball, petting and hugging. Frankie is a stunning dog. Being most likely deaf, he needs a savvy owner who will not regret taking home such a great companion. Frankie is at the Manhattan shelter, waiting for his forever family.
