In Tracy, California, an abused puppy was discovered on Saturday morning along Coral Hollow Road near Highway 205. The three-month-old Mastiff mix had been duct-taped around his muzzle and his front legs. He had deep lacerations on his head and rear leg.
According to the City of Tracy Animal Services’ Facebook, the friendly little pup has been named Frankie – short for Frankenstein considering when he was found and rescued. He is described as very friendly, very affectionate and very forgiving; not giving his torturous past a second thought. Dr, Natalie Olsen from Jules Vet has been caring for the pup after repairing his torn ear and stitching up his open wounds.
Natalie Raley Olsen: “There is my sweet little patient!!! He is such sweetheart! Truly my pleasure to put his little ear back on…….he needs an amazing forever home for sure!! Poor baby.”
Frankie has had quite a few offers for adoption already. The shelter is looking for an approved rescue organization to help out.
It is hoped the culprits who tortured Frankie can be found and punished. The city is hoping someone will come forward with information about this puppy and help him find some justice. Tips can be called into the shelter at 209.831.6364.
