LebTown is featuring a different Lebanon County pet each Friday to help us enter the weekend with the best vibes possible.

This week’s pets are Franklin and Smokey, owned by Hope Wentling of Lebanon.

Franklin is a 6-year-old Australian shepherd mutt.

Franklin loves to nap, hike, play outside, and wrestle with his brother, Smokey.

Franklin and Smokey were rescued from an abusive hoarder home in North Carolina, and have been inseparable ever since,” Wentling said.

The background that they have overcome, their puppy-like spirits, and their handsomeness make Franklin and Smokey the perfect candidates.

Congratulations to Franklin and Smokey on being LebTown’s Pets of the Week!
