Newfoundland Kicked Out of Puppy School for Sitting on Smaller Pups



Franklyn is a giant dog with a big personality to match. Standing six feet tall on his hind legs and weighing in at 126 lbs, this Newfoundland might seem intimidating, but he’s just a big old softie at heart.

Despite his size, Franklyn sees himself as a lapdog and loves nothing more than cuddling up with his owners, even if it means squashing them in the process.

Kicked Out of Puppy School

Franklyn’s owner, Shauna Connors, admits that she has had to make some adjustments to accommodate her giant pet’s love of cuddles, such as allowing him on the furniture, despite previously not allowing any of her other pets on it.

Wreaking Havoc Around the House

Franklyn’s size also causes some issues around the house. He’s been known to smash glasses and push furniture out of the way in search of toys or food scraps. Shauna said, “Sometimes he’ll come through the room and push things out of the way like they’re nothing.

Doesn’t Play Well With Others

On walks, he likes to play with smaller dogs, but his size means that he sometimes ends up knocking them over. Shauna admits that the family’s reflexes have had to improve to save things from getting knocked over by Franklyn’s fluffy tail.
