Franklin, named for Franklin Delano Roosevelt who overcame incredible odds to do great things, is affectionately called Frankie. At the sound of his name, he looks up at you with those big Basset Hound eyes and his tail starts to wag. It’s actually wagging most of the time; that is when he’s not wiggling about or rolling over so you can rub his belly or scratch his ears. Anything will do, as long as he has your attention!
We’ll never know how he became so crippled. Some of his issues may be genetic; but there are no doubts that abuse and neglect have contributed to Frankie being unable to use his front legs.
After many x-rays and three top surgeons in the valley consulting, it was determined that the only hope for him to walk would be surgery. He’ll have his first surgery on September 19th. Our generous supporters made the first surgery happen; now it is time to raise money for the second surgery.
We know that with your help Frankie will have the very best chance of walking and playing and running with the other hounds. And when he’s ready he’ll be looking for his Forever Home!
