Franklin's adoption donation is $425 and he is being fostered in the Mansfield, Ohio area. He has been neutered, microchipped, received his rabies, dhlpp, bivalent canine influenza, and bordetella vaccines, tested negative for heartworms and started on prevention, as well as flea prevention.  He has also had a dental cleaning with extractions. Franklin requires a home with a companion dog of similar size/energy in the home. 

Ladies and/or gentlemen:  If you are looking for a gentle boy to love you unconditionally, take long walks, cuddle on the couch and watch TV, I am your boy.  I adjusted quickly to my foster home and get along well with my small foster fur-sister.  I would do best in a home with only adults or respectful children over 10.  I love to communicate with you verbally and non-verbally. I do very well with my potty habits when kept on a schedule.  I love my daily walks.  My foster mom tells me that I am a handsome, strong boy, and I think that's all the walking I've been doing...after all, summer is just around the corner.  I don't know a stranger and everyone who has met me loves me as I do them.  

I came into rescue with my littermate when our owner could no longer care for us and I needed some attention. The doctor told me that I need daily eye drops to manage dry eye (which they tell me a lot of dogs have to take). I also take a preventative joint supplement. A ranch style home or condo would be much appreciated. (I would let you carry me if you want!)  I do not need a fenced yard, but I do like to have a buddy.

If you are interested in my unconditional love, please submit an application.  If you already have an approved application, please email to let the applications team know you want to swipe right on my bio.

PLEASE NOTE:   If you are viewing this biography on a website other than the Ohio Fuzzy Pawz website like Petfinder, Adopt-a-Pet, or another search engine (the OFP website is, not all information transfers to partner websites in some instances.  If you go to the  individual webpage of our dogs , you will be able to get more information each dog.

Visual breed identification in dogs can be unreliable so, in many cases, we are only guessing at the predominant breed or breed mix.  We get to know each dog as an individual and will do our best to describe each of our dogs based on personality, not by breed label.

Our Adoption Process

The adoption process has several steps involved. Please review prior to submitting an application. Our adoption process is detailed here:

Our volunteers work very diligently to process each application and we try to ensure that we are making the best match possible for each dog.  We do not schedule meetings with dogs until an application has been approved.  It can take up to a few weeks to process an application or as little time as a few days, from the time you submit an application, please be prepared to adopt as we cannot hold dogs.

Special Requirements

Some dogs may have special requirements (for example, medications, a fence) -- if you apply for a dog, please be sure to read over the biography completely to see if there are any special needs and if you're home would be suitable.  If we indicate on the dog's biography that a fence is required, this means your home must have a physical fence.  Other dogs may require a "strong vet reference" which indicates that we are looking for a home that has a documented history of veterinary care with previous pets. 

The first step in our process is to submit an online adoption application at  The application MUST include the personal references and veterinary, grooming, and landlord references (if applicable) and their respective contact information.  If you do not include the references and the contact information, your application will be delayed as it CANNOT be processed.  Once the references have been successfully completed, a home visit is then scheduled when a rescue representative can meet all members of the family or residents of the home.  No application is approved prior to the home visit being done.   At that point, the Directors will discuss any and all applications on a foster dog and make a selection--in many cases, there are multiple applications for each dog, so please be understanding that our only priority is the successful placement of each of our foster dogs.

Out of State Adoptions

We do adopt out of state to outstanding applicants, however, our process requires a home visit, so out of state adoptions can take longer.  We do not ship our dogs, adopters should be prepared to pick up the dog in Central Ohio.
