This small dog was stabbed. Not once, but 19 times.

As much as it might shock you, this poor dog called Frannie, was found at a church in St Louis County, Missouri.

Frannie, a poodle mix, is about 10 years old and naturally when she was found she was suffering from shock, trauma, and had lost a lot of blood.

Rescuers found stab wounds on her chest, back, and neck.

The saddest, perhaps, the miraculous part of the story is that Frannie was found by accident.

A team from the St. Louis County Police Crisis Intervention Team were responding to a mental illness at a church when they came across the poor dog barely hanging on to life.

Frannie was rushed to the Humane Society of Missouri (HSMO) and the HSMO has pledged to do everything in their power to help Frannie.

Frannie’s owner was found and they surrendered her to the HSMO and let’s hope the person(s) responsible for Frannie’s injuries can be found and punished.

Get well soon, Frannie.

Share away, people.
