Frannie might be considered a grannie, as she is a senior and shows signs of having had more than one litter. This seven-year-old Bully Breed mix was surrendered to the Blount County Animal Center in Tennessee by her owner, along with her sister Flossie, on August 24th. These two girls shared more than a neglectful owner, as they both shared a diagnosis of being heartworm positive.
Kristin Baksa, the shelter’s rescue coordinator, asked RADAR for our help on September 2nd. Could we help these two furry gals out? We did! While Flossie was able to complete her heartworm treatment on September 18th, Frannie had to wait a few weeks longer to have a mast cell tumor removed. Frannie did complete her heartworm treatment on October 16th.
“Frannie is a very friendly and social dog,” Kristin told us. “She doesn’t have a care in the world! Frannie loves to play with other dogs, but she also loves a nice couch. At 39 pounds, she is the perfect size: very portable, but not small enough to trip over. Now that her heartworms are gone, Frannie is looking for a loving home with equal measures of playtimes and nap times!” To see more photos of Frannie, click here.
RADAR paid all $218 of the heartworm treatment costs for Frannie.
UPDATE! All funds for Frannie have been raised! Thank you!
