Hi! My name is  Frankie  and this is my best friend "ball". I LOVE my ball and I would play with it all day if you would let me. I'm very good at catch and can jump pretty high in the air to catch my ball. I love to play fetch and would literally play for hours if you let me.  I fetch the ball and will drop it right back at your feet. 
My foster mom was told that I used to hunt in a previous home. I have never been hunting or had a gun shot over me at my foster home. GPPR cannot guarantee that I will hunt.  She trusts me to go on unleashed walks using an e-collar. She just calls me back and I usually come back. Sometimes she may have to use the "beep" but that's it! She still can't believe how good I am doing off leash! Also, she thinks I used to have an invisible fence at a previous home. 
I have pretty good manners, but I could always use more work. I can counter surf and dart out of the doors, but we are working on all of this.  I sit and wait nice for my food until my mom tells me it's OK. I've been working at sitting and waiting at the door as well.  I ride well in the car too!
I am potty trained and will whine to let you know what I need to go outside. I am crate trained, but I can be a little vocal in there if I hear you around the house. I'm getting better at this, but you can talk to my foster mom more about this. 
I will come over and ask for pets, but I am not a big cuddler, but this may change in the future!
I live with a 2.5 year old boy, but he can make me nervous at times. I would do better with older children.
Have I mentioned that I love my ball? 
I hope my forever home is very active and would enjoy playing ball as much as I do!
Frankie will need to be the only dog in the home.
Frankie is being fostered in Minnesota.
