8.17.13 - Woman Saves Dog from Mob1

A dog named Frank is in need of a loving home after being rescued by a compassionate passerby who saw him being beaten by a mob.

“He had an open gouge of a wound to the point where you could almost see his skull,” said animal control officer Paul Schmidt. “He had several open wounds along the right side of his face, including part of his jowls.”

A woman was driving down a street in Milwaukee when she saw the dog being attacked by a group of people armed with sticks, bricks and rocks. She immediately pulled over and opened her door. She called to the dog, who ran right to his rescuer and leaped into the car.

The dog was called Frankenstein by shelter staff, because that’s what he looked like when he arrived, barely clinging to life. He still has to recover, but Schmidt, who responded to the call, said he’s coming along well.

The sweet, high-energy boy who still loves people now needs a home.

“It feels awesome,” said Schmidt. “It’s always great to have an animal we pick up that we don’t know who the owner is to get out of here and go have a new wonderful forever home.”

    • Certainly much more than the humans who were beating him. He did not attempt to protect himself from that scum. I would take this dog in a heartbeat. He will be affectionate, loyal, loving – a sweetheart.

      Many dogs are brought out of situations like this and after some rehabilitation find wonderful homes where they are adored, which is exactly what they deserve. For instance do some research on Mike Vick’s rescued Pits. Those dogs were cared for, rehabilitated and went to loving homes and pose no threat to anyone.

    • They are one of the most trusting and forgiving breeds there are. All it will take is a little patience and gentle instruction, and this dog will be absolutely fine around humans.

  1. well, how nice rip see the good people of milwaukee living up to American ideals. I’m sure their children learned much from their shining example.

  2. Bless that good Samaritan and their courage! Hope the best for a loving home for the recovered pooch.
