Franklin is looking for a new home

Some friends of ours have made the difficult decision that their pug Franklin would be happier in a different environment. He's very loved and well cared for, but as his family put it, city life just isn't for him and as a result he's got some challenges.  He lives in San Francisco now, and his mama thinks he wants to be a country dog.

She writes:

I need to live down at the end of a long dirt road in the country where I can play fetch to my hearts content and visitors are rare. Another dog to play with would be great.

We dearly hope that Franklin finds a home that suits him. Read all about him at The Daily Puglet.

Winnie, you should take Franklin into your home!! I can speak from experience that one pug is fun, but two pugs are hilarious!! We don't regret for one second taking in our second pug Moose (who is from Ohio pug rescue) he's a great little guy!!

oh oops SanFransisco. I didn't see that! I live in Los Angeles, but it's not as busy as San Fran :D there are many dog parks dog beaches and a pug to play with! I have a lot of friends who go to SF a lot... maybe they can pick him up for me if he is still available!

Hi I'm Franklin's aunt. Franklin's family really appreciates all the supportive comments on Shelby's blog as well as The Daily Puglet. It's important that everyone who has expressed an interest in Franklin understands that he is a goofy and loving dog with his family and dog cousins but this is a dog that can no longer be trusted out in public. He just doesn't do well with new people and is aggressive with strange dogs with out provocation. Therefore a new owner cannot expect to take Franklin to dog parks, beaches, and, possibly even out on the street anymore. That is why we hope he will find a large property where he can run and play without interacting with others not well known to him. Keep your fingers crossed!
