    I am currently emergency fostering Franky. We rent and my landlord said it was ok to foster a dog but when he found out what kind of breed Franky is he said he had to go. I know it's not fair so let’s not go there. I’d like to see him go to a forever home and not another foster.

    Here's a short version of Franky's story......

    Franky's first half of his life was chained to a tree, living in mud and feces. Kids would throw soda pop on him for fun through the fence. Many of his days he would go without food or water and had sub-standard shelter. He was befriended by some caring people who would take him food and water and then tried to educate the owners on how to be responsible dog owners but they didn't care. With the help of the Humane Society, the owners surrendered Franky so they wouldn't get fined, to the rescue group C.O.D.A.

    Franky was then placed in a very loving foster home where they had another dog, cat, child and a fenced in yard. He was there for a year and then the owner was losing the home so she tried desperately to place him. She had some friends, with a fenced yard, who gave Franky a try and things seemed to be ok when someone left the gate open and he got out. He was lost for 24 hours and then got picked up. Thank Goodness he was micro chipped. He was taken to the Vet/Boarding facility that was the co-name on his chip because the main name was the owner of C.O.D.A. who, at the time, was hospitalized and unable to speak. A woman that worked at the vet thought he was a nice dog so she took him home to her daughter's house. Her daughter not knowing the breed that much, mistook his high energy as something bad, got scared and someone in the house shot him with a BB gun. He was taken to the pound, they ran the chip but once again the person whose name was the contact was hospitalized. Thank Goodness that they didn't give up on him. So with a few phone calls, a C.O.D.A. volunteer was contacted, and he was taken to a boarding facility before they euthanized him. This was becoming rather costly so this is where I came in.

    Franky is a 2 yr old purebred altered male American Pitbull who desperately wants a forever home. He's house/crate trained and knows most commands. Up to date with vaccinations. Ok with other dogs and cats. Franky is friendly, playful, loves to gives kisses and cuddle. One of his faults is he's a bed hog!! LOL. We live in the NE Ohio area.

    Sorry to hear of all this that has happened to him. He's super adorable.

    Unless it's in writing (and even then, it SHOULD be notarized), it's not legally binding because then it's all hearsay and there's no proof said conversation actually took place.

    Thanks for looking at Franky and the kind words. He is such a great boy with lots of personality. Throughout everything he's been through he's remained his charming self. I am very happy to say he's been ADOPTED !!!!! Words can't express how happy I am for him. Thank you again for anyone who looked at Franky, thought or considered adopting him. Never give up.
