Arlington Pet of the Week: Full-Time Frankie

This week’s Pet of the Week is Full-Time Frankie, a snuggly Lab mix who recently turned 1. This pup gets his name from 1.) His human’s love for alliterations, and 2.) The wholehearted way he approaches life.

Learn more about Frankie and his life here in Arlington:

Hi everyone. Meet Frankie! (You can find him @fulltimefrankie on Instagram.)

Named Frankie as a result of my infatuation with alliterations and his status as a foster, this nameless black-and-white lab mix puppy was brought home on August 8, 2020. “Frankie the Foster” wasn’t in the best of health for the first few weeks of his life, but he couldn’t have had a brighter or more snuggly demeanor. Fast forward a few weeks and Frankie quickly wagged his way to a more permanent part of the family as “Full-Time Frankie.”

Ironically, Frankie truly fits the bill when it comes to being full time. Whatever he does, he puts his whole heart (and extremely long tail) into it. He’s a quick learner and the most curious pup you will ever meet. Crying baby? Flat tire? Frankie will stop in his tracks in order to fully assess the situation, making sure everyone is OK, before we can continue our way.

Frankie adores just about everyone that he meets! He loves long walks, drinking from the spigot, just about any treat there is and running through the creek at the dog park with his friends. He’s a big bundle of energy, but at the end of every day, he’ll find his way into my lap for a cozy nap before bed.

If you see us around, make sure you say hello! If you’re with your pup, chances are, Frankie will be crouched down looking very adorable while waiting for you to walk by.

Want your pet to be considered for the Arlington Pet of the Week? Email [email protected] with a 2-3 paragraph bio and at least 3-4 horizontally-oriented photos of your pet. Please don’t send vertical photos — they don’t fit in our photo galleries!

We are also looking for local pets who look like their owners or like celebrities. Email us photos of your pet and their doppelgänger, explaining the resemblance and whether it has been noticed in your neighborhood.
