Frisco's life long owner had to move to assisted living, leaving Frisco scared and homeless. After being boarded at a kennel for 2 weeks, he made it to Knoxville to join our rescue! He immediately greeted me, excited to meet a new friend. He does excellent with all people. But due to his small size and age, we are requiring he goes to a home with kids over age of 12.
**We would prefer a home where someone will be home a majority of the day**
Frisco does mark inside. He must have not been taught any different and since he is 11 years old, there is little chance of him fixing his habit. Please understand this before inquiring about Frisco. Luckily, Frisco (unlike most dogs) does not mind wearing a belly band or male dog diaper (google belly band if you are not familiar). While it may be a little extra work to use belly bands, it really is not that hard to get used to. He will not pee in the bed. Friscoe sleeps under the covers with me every night, with no bellyband on! I can say with confidence that his potty habits are worth having such a funny, loving companion
Frisco would be the perfect companion for an older person/couple who are retired, or often at home. He is the definition of a velcro dog. He wants nothing more than to be by your side 24/7. He is a great cuddler. He will even dive into the shower with me if he gets the chance.
Frisco does ok in a kennel, but he will bark for the first 10-15 minutes of being placed in the kennel. Eventually he goes to sleep. If you put a belly band on him and let him free roam, he will almost immediately lay down and go to sleep until you come home and wake him up. Due to his age, his hearing is not all there, so sometimes I have to go up to him and wake him up. The moment he wakes up.. he jumps up, tail wagging, thrilled that I am home.
Frisco has been fostered in my home for almost 3 months now. Which means he has been with a young Aussie, 17 lb mutt, and 95 lb Am. Bully, plus countless short term fosters of all ages and sizes. He also goes to work with me at a dog daycare/boarding kennel almost every day. So Frisco is not dog aggressive. But he is a people dog. He prefers people over dogs any day. He does occasionally play with some of the dogs at work. But when he is in "his home" he is very protective of me and generally indifferent to my dogs/fosters. He does NOT like super active dogs or puppies. Anything that would annoy a grumpy old man, would annoy Frisco. Since he is so protective of me, he is very rude and growls any time another dog comes near me. For that reason, Frisky needs a home with no other dogs, or a home with dogs that are laid back and not super bothered by Frisco getting all the lap time!
Frisco is truly one of the best companions! Typically, a dog that marks in the house is hard to manage. But since he is used to belly bands, it REALLY is not that hard to manage. Other than that, he is the absolute best little companion. Everyone who meets him just loves him.
