Hi there! My name is Franklin and this is my friend Rocky.
I know he looks bigger than me, but he is still just a pup, and an energetic one at that! He got transferred to the Sydney Shelter from Dubbo, and oh my gosh I have never seen a pup run so much. When he is out in the big play area, he looks so happy galloping around and playing. Because he is so big and full of beans, I don't think he can go home with little kids, but check with the shelter staff.
As he is still so young, he is still learning manners and how to behave. It took me forever to learn how to sit, but he was pretty quick... although that may be because he was getting treats! He's a super happy shelter mate and we love having a good bark or two together, but I think it's time he found his fur-ever family.
If you want to be that family and give my friend Rocky a fresh start, then you can find and adopt him from the RSPCA Sydney Shelter in Yagoona; 201 Rookwood Road, Yagoona, 2199, (02) 9770 7555

At the RSPCA we know every animal has a story. Our job is to create a better story, a better life.
Your gift of whatever you can afford will give animals like Franklin a happier, safer Christmas.
And it’s during Christmas that marks one of the toughest times for our animals and staff alike at the shelters. Not only must we manage an influx of animals but also conditions are extraordinarily challenging. Hot days and humidity mean our animals need more attention. So all the creature comforts we can get make a world of difference to animals in our care.
