ST. LOUIS, Mo. — A 10-year-old, female poodle-mix dog named Frannie who was stabbed 19 times has been adopted by the family member of a first-responder.

The Humane Society of Missouri staff said a family member of the St. Louis County first-responder unit that investigated the stabbing adopted Frannie asked to remain anonymous.

The adopters said they knew from the first day they saw Frannie they wanted to give her a new home.

“We feel adopting her to this first-responder family will ensure her the safe and loving future she deserves. We are very grateful for all of the expressions of support and love we have received for Frannie,” said Kathy Warnick, president of the Humane Society of Missouri.

Frannie received intensive treatment, surgery, and a dental cleaning as she recovered in the Humane Society of Missouri adoption center.
