He is about 5 years old, in wonderful condition and loves everyone. If you are a Pitty lover this boy is perfect; he walks well on leash (and loves it), actually loves everyone and craves attention. Belly rubs and playing ball are his main attractions and he even likes the puppies here at the kennel. He would prefer to be the only dog in the house but has lived with smaller dogs. Small children might not be good as he may knock them down and smother them with kisses ..... Frankie is a very loyal and loving boy, looking for a loving and loyal home.
