Frank the wonder dog

 
 

About five years ago our beloved dog Rusty, a rescue, passed away & we were at a loss. But as fate has it we were set to help give a happy home to a another lucky pup. At the shelter there was a friendly young dog wagging his tail and almost smiling at us. He was not up for adoption yet. I found a chair, sat down and we watched him. We knew we had to be the first to adopt him. That day a staff member put down our name as first pick.

The long three day wait was finally over and I drove down to adopt him. We named him Frank The Wonder Dog and now Frank goes with us every where. He is a very happy dog and we are happy to have found a friendly, happy gentle dog who loves people. We are lucky to give a second chance to a special dog that fits our life so well.

A huge thank you to SCRAPS. With the adoption, SCRAPS had him neutered and a clean bill of health before we could take him home. The service was great and they were able to find us a furry friend.
