Are you looking to adopt a dog?
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.
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.
