Franky, July 28th Pet of the Week

Awwww! Just love him!

He’s listed as a Staffie terrier at Long Beach Animal Care Services, but frankly, a couple of volunteers don’t think that’s what Franky (ID#A695989) is. We’ll just call him a handsome cow-spotted pittie something, wearing a Phantom of the Opera mask and bearing a little red streak across his back. Franky’s just 2 years old and is focused on pleasing humans—he’s not distracted by other dogs. He knows a couple of commands but prefers to perform them with an audience, likely a factor of that theater mask. He’s a moderate leash puller and loves to smell everything, flowers included, and once he’s tuckered out, he splats down on the grass and asks for pets. Think Ferdinand the Bull. Franky has a tendency to jump on people, and while his jumps are friendly, he weighs 80 pounds, so he needs an experienced human. He needs to be out of here by Aug. 11, and you know what that could mean. You can speed the process to adopt or foster Frank and any of our other pets by emailing or You can also call (562) 570-4925. Even better, stop by during our new open walk-in hours every Wednesday through Sunday from 11 a.m.–3 p.m. Our shelter is located at 7700 E. Spring St. Ask for ID#A689065 to meet Franky.
