Alhambra Source partnered with the San Gabriel Valley Humane Society for a weekly column, "Pet of the Week." Every Thursday, we'll introduce you to a new animal looking for a home. This week's pet is Frankie, a terrier mix. Read more about Frankie below!
Breed: Terrier Mix
Age: 1 year
Weight: 10 pounds
Fur: Black coat
Frankie is an adorable terrier mix with a happy, friendly spirit. He has soft black fur with a few white highlights, and is about one year old. He is 10 pounds of love and affection looking for a good home.
Frankie arrived at the shelter as a victim of abuse. He had a blue rubber band tied around his muzzle that had deeply embedded into his gums and flesh. He was given immediate medical care by our clinic staff who treated his wounds, repaired the damage, and reconstructed his face. Although he had to live with staples holding his muzzle together for a few weeks, he has completely healed and there is no visible evidence left of the mistreatment that he endured.
Frankie has shown himself to be very resilient after his traumatic experience. He seems to love people, is happy receiving and giving affection, and is quite the cuddler! He will greet you as you walk by his kennel with a smile on his face, a wag in his tail and a friendly “hello” bark.
