Frankie the Law Dog is the blog of Tampa Bay area attorney Suzanne Bechard, proud owner of Frankie Whiteshoes. Frankie is a handsome black Labrador Retriever mix who was found abandoned in Dayton, Tennessee in April 2008.
In June 2009, Frankie welcomed the adoption of his little sister Lucy, a chocolate Labrador Retriever mix who was rescued in Dade City, Florida. She was found abandoned and starving. Now, she’s healthy and happy in her new home.
There is no excuse for the abuse, neglect and abandonment of animals. But this blog will not focus exclusively on that. We will also be blogging about the many ways in which animals enrich the lives of humans, and we will talk a little bit every now and then about how the law impacts animals and the people who love them.
We are always open to constructive suggestions on how we can improve this site to make it a resource you’ll use every day.
