No knows for sure what happened to Sinatra the pittie pup before he was abandoned, but he likely had a hard life. He was under the care of a neglectful owner at best, but he had a lucky break when that owner decided they no longer wanted him.
While responsible pet parents would find a proper home for their fur babies under such circumstances, Sinatra’s first owner simply tied him to a cart return in a pet store parking lot and left.
The dog had no idea why he was left behind or if his owner was coming back. It’s heartbreaking to think about, but it all ended up being for the best because it’s through that cart return that Sinatra met Frank.
In an interview with GeoBeats Animals, Frank explained that he had been looking to adopt a dog when he got a text from a friend. The friend, who happens to be a police officer, explained that they’d received a report about an abandoned dog and the dog needed a new home.
Frank decided to step up and adopt the pup for himself, aptly naming the little puppy Sinatra. Frank didn’t know it at the time, but Sinatra would be everything he ever dreamed of in a dog.
Sinatra may have had a rough start to life, but he didn’t let that ruin his trust or faith in humans. In fact, Sinatra seemed to love Frank from the day they first met!
Frank described Sinatra as being very “food motivated” and playful. He loved snuggling and spending time with Frank. Since Frank adopted Sinatra, the two spent a whopping 11 years together.
The dog even had an ever-growing fanbase on Instagram where Frank would post adorable photos and updates about Sinatra!
