Frankie has found his forever home!

Frankie, the black chihuahua rescued from a drain pipe, has found his forever home! He was adopted by a wonderful family in Los Angeles and he now has four siblings, including three (rescued) chihuahuas and an Australian Cattledog.

Thank you to everyone who has supported Frankie, Miley, The Forgotten Dog Foundation, Hope For Paws, and The Fuzzy Pet Foundation.
