Frankie was tied to a tree and abused for the first year of his life. He was surrendered and spent the entire second in a Humane Society. The people there told me he was passed over many times in that year because of his age, his past, and the fact that he is a Pit Bull mix. He was quiet and withdrawn. One look at him, though, and I fell in love! After some much needed TLC, he became the most silly, friendly, loyal dog - so happy, healthy, and full of life now. I can't imagine my life without my big boy!
