How could we NOT call this little boy "Frankie Blue Eyes"?!? Isn't he beautiful? WE. ARE. IN. LOVE!
Frankie and a couple of his pals came to us all the way from San Juan, Puerto Rico. He's whats known as a "Sato" which unfortunately is Puerto Rican slang for "stray mutt". There are estimated to be over 100,000 satos roaming the streets & beaches of Puerto Rico. They are treated horribly. An amazing gal who recently created "Buffalo Sato Rescue Network" reached out to us for help, and we couldn't refuse.
He is being fostered with his BFF "Dora" , another Sato who could be his twin apart from her eye color. He loves to play with her, and any other dogs nearby (even big ones!). Toys make his day as he loves to chew & play tug of war. He's been fantastic around young children as well. He has not been exposed to cats, but pups raised around kitties don't usually have an issue with them. He is working hard on potty training. His foster mom tells us he's very smart and catching on quickly.
We have absolutely no clue what breeds he may be, but his colors appear hound like, and another volunteer thinks he resembles a dachsund. Satos typically max out between 30 & 35 pounds, but there are no guarantees to what his full grown size will be. He is too young to be neutered right now, but is up to date on all required vaccines.
Please remember when considering adopting a puppy that it can be at least a 10 to 15 year commitment, and training pups is no easy task. It takes a lot of hard work, persistence and patience mixed in with some sleepless nights, cleaning up accidents and losing a few valued items or shoes that got left in a puppy's reach. But, there's also a lifetime of love, laughter, & loyalty waiting for you every time you walk in your door. Serious Applications welcome any time.
