We were told he was elderly with an inoperable, cancerous mass on his hind leg. Yesterday he went to his wondeful new home with the Sierra family and their Minature Schnauzer with a new lease on life.

Upon examination by Dr. Sarah Brown, it was obvious Frankie was younger than originally thought. Dr. Brown also felt he was a very good candidate for surgery to having the huge growth removed. Fast forward, and he is healing nicely, albeit while having to wear the “cone of shame.” He’ll complete the healing process with his new family, and what looks to be a long, happy life ahead of him.
