"We've never, ever, ever had the community come together like this for a dog so quickly," Frank says. "We're lucky if we raise half of what a dog's medical costs are.
"What an incredible way to start 2017."
Frank will be fostering Tater Tot, while monitoring his condition and, well, continuing to fall deeper in love with the jigsaw puzzle of a dog.
"He's got the body of an English bulldog, a head the size of a pit bull, with the same features of a pit bull, and the eyes of a French bulldog," she says. "He's something magical."
And before long, he will be looking for the final piece to his puzzle - a forever home.
"This is just the beginning with this guy," Frank says.
