Frank the puppy has a rare brain condition called hydrocephalus, where an excess of fluid builds up in the brain.
Luckily, Richmond Animal League saved him from a shelter. Their executive director said:
"As a very young puppy Frank clearly had a really big head. We transfer animals from municipal shelters that are in danger of being euthanized, and that's how we got Frank."
Frank eventually made his way to his forever home with Stacy Metz who works in the neurosurgery department of Virginia Commonwealth University.
They often see patients with hydrocephalus and Metz thought Frank would be able to lend a paw!
So after being saved from the shelter, and finding his family, Frank went on the fulfill his life's purpose…
