COLUMBUS (WCMH) — We first introduced you to Frankie back in November, 2017.

He was being fostered by Stop the Suffering, and he impressed us because he only has three legs.

You would hardly notice it if you met him, however. He is loving life and his new family.

“He’s so goofy,” said Cara Hill about her new dog. “I’ve never had a dog make me laugh this much.”

He’s been living with the Hills for a few months now but winning them over only took seconds.

“He is the love of my life. He’s a handsome boy. I tell him every day.”

If you ask Hill why she liked Frankie, one of the reasons is not something you hear every day: because he is a black dog.

“Well I wear it a lot. It’s my favorite color so it makes sense the fur wouldn’t show up as much.”

She also said she knows they are harder to get adopted.

With plenty of space to run, a big sister and a human brother, Frankie, now known as Roo, is living the dream.

“He’s playful but never aggressive or rude or anything like that.”

Which Hill said was really important after they lost their other dog.

It wasn’t only hard on them but for their dog Dip.

“She kind of stopped playing after her sister died. And then with him she started playing again. and she had anxiety after our other dog died and he’s really helped her out with that.”

Another Max’s Mission accomplished. Tune in every Sunday at 7am and again at 9am to see an adoptable dog during our Max’s Mission segment!
