To add insult to injury, that vehicle also failed to quit, leaving the poor dog unable to walk and pinned to the roadway. Not only did several drivers reject to pull over and help, a few of them drove right over the injured dog. Finally, a lady lastly quit her car to move Frankie off to the shoulder, but she still failed to call for help, basically leaving the wonderful animal alone to die.
By the time a grad student named Sarah drove by, the poor canine had actually currently been struck by multiple vehicles. The young woman picked up the canine and gingerly put her inside the car, while her husband sped off to the nearest animal medical facility. There Frankie was rolled into the doggie ER, where the vet discovered her pelvis had actually been broken in multiple places.
Despite being a infamously cash-strapped student, Sarah opted to wait on Frankie’s results, in spite of the high likelihood she would certainly be held liable for the bills. Days later on Sarah came back to grab the pooch after her hospital remain, then took her to a various surgeon for a second opinion. Even though she really did not know this dog from all the various other strays roaming their city, her greatest concern was that the animal healed up totally, whatever the cost.
Nothing about the procedure or the healing was easy, since Frankie’s pelvis had actually been broken in multiple locations, leaving her not able to urinate on her own. The delicate location of the injury also provided the possibility of nerve damages, on top of the accident-related road rash all over the canine’s body.
To add insult to injury, the roaming also had major mange, although Sarah recalls the dog being so brave that she just yelped when she had to be moved. This led Sarah to call the dog Frank the Tank, or Frankie, for her bravery in the face of this terrible ordeal.
And a year later, Frankie is doing better than ever. Not just has she physically recovered, she’s found herself in a loving new home with two loving people and a fellow canine brother or sister. And while Sarah was, of course, struck by exorbitant clinical bills ultimately, she would certainly help Frankie (or any other animal for that issue) if she could do it once again.
