Dog Rescue Newcastle and The Star have partnered to provide a weekly column of some of the area's most eligible K9s that are in need of a loving home.

Meet this week's pooches:

Frankie: 6 years, Chihuahua X Jack Russell

Free loving hipster seeks companion. My name it is Frankie, but you can call me Frank if you like.

I'm seeking a companion who would like to spend our mornings together, you with a skim chai latte me with a puppuccino.

And our afternoons together maybe on a walk around the neighborhood or at the local beach taking selfies for Instagram.

TOTAL HIPSTER: Frankie is registered as a Chihuahua-cross-Jack Russell though there's a solid chance there could be other breeds in the mix.

I am medium sized six-year-old boy, and I have the cutest little ears that fold forward and skinny chicken legs that make my bloodlines a great dinner party debate.

I have been registered as Chihuahua-cross-Jack Russell but my foster mum thinks there's a lot more to the mix.

I enjoy the company of other dogs and I use my manners when I meet them on a walk.

I happily sleep at the foot of my humans bed either on a doggy bed or a crate.

A typical hipster, my hair is a big deal.

I can shed quite a bit, so my ideal companion won't have allergies.

Ava: 12 weeks, foxhound X puppy

Meet Ava! A 12-week-old, foxhound-cross-puppy.

You scratch, she'll sniff. You throw she'll chase. You laugh, she'll wag.

You've had a bad day, Ava will make it all better.

You pick her, she'll LOVE you.

The floppy ears and tri-coloured cuteness will draw you in, but this very energetic breed is going to need some diligent training and understanding of their personalities in order to thrive in a family environment.

Foxhounds are hunters and can become very distracted once on a scent trail.

They will need a more than average amount of exercise and won't be adopted to small yards or courtyards.

On the plus side, they are very loyal, make great adventure buddies and are a sturdy low maintenance dog.

This playful critter will grow up to be a medium - large dog.

We always recommend puppy-training classes to give your new family member the best start in life.
