How long would you keep hoping that you would ever see your dog again after losing it? Denise Shepard did her best to find her lost dog. She posted flyers and offered rewards, but after the third month, she was almost certain that she would never see her beloved Boston Bull Terrier again.
“After like the third month, I thought someone just had him and would never give him back,” she said. “He’s been gone so long I didn’t even think I was going to see him again.”
To her biggest surprise, 5 months after Frankie had gone missing she received a phone call from an animal hospital in Wheeling telling her that her dog was found 200 miles away from home.
None knows exactly the extraordinary chain of events that lead Frankie back to his owner, but Mark Feldstein certainly played a major part in Frankie’s discovery. Mark found the dog in a parking lot and took it to the police, who referred him to the animal hospital. Mark was ready to adopt the dog, but the veterinary found a chip under Frankie’s skin with the owner’s details.
Denise has no idea how Frankie managed to survive 5 months and the 200 mile journey, because in her own words “He is an indoor dog”. Stil, Denise was probably one of the happiest people in the world that day.
“I was so excited, people were all staring at me…” , “I can’t even tell you I was so happy.”
Frankie expressed his happiness to reunite with Denise by ‘singing’.

Boston Terriers are American Dogs. They are considered to be “American Gentlemen” because of their markings and also their temperament.
Interestingly, they were originally bred as a cross between the Old English Bulldog and the English White Terrier. These breeds are now extinct, and find expression in the Boston Terrier.
