Frankie the pug came into Izabella St. James’ life the way most dogs do — injured, neglected and in dire need of a loving home.
St. James, a pug rescuer and the woman behind The Pug Queen, first learned about Frankie through a friend.
“It was a couple weeks before I was supposed to move, and I had so many dogs and I was totally overwhelmed with the amount of rescues,” St. James told The Dodo. “But a friend reached out to me and said, ‘FYI, there is little boy pug who is completely injured.’ There was a post somewhere on Facebook that someone had got him, and he needed help and couldn’t walk, and they didn’t know how to help him. And she said, ‘Would you be willing to help him?’”
