This adorable dog was stabbed 19 times by a crazy person and not only made a remarkable recovery, but charmed the police officer who rescued her and found a forever home.
In St. Louis last month the Humane Society of Missouri’s Animal Cruelty Task Force received a call from a police officer who was responding to a 10-96 (psycho) call at a church. A Poodle mix had been stabbed in the neck, back and chest, and was suffering from blood loss and shock.
The officer took her into protective custody and delivered her to the humane society. Veterinarians treated her with IV fluids, antibiotics, and pain medication. It was unclear at the time if the dog, now named “Frannie,” would survive the horrendous ordeal.
But she came through and the police officer who found her has adopted her.
The 18-year-old woman who is believed to have stabbed the dog was taken into police custody. Her case was referred to the mental illness court.
