Fire raged through Jeannie’s home in Florida on June 30, 2009, destroying everything and trapping her Great Dane, Dryfus. Jeannie and her children escaped without harm, but Dryfus did not. He suffered lung damage from the smoke and second and third degree burns over nearly 40 percent of his body - wounds that are very hard to recover from.

Dryfus was revived at the scene by firefighters, then rushed to a specialty hospital called BluePearl. With constant attention from the veterinary team, Dryfus underwent the slow and painful process of recovery from his burns. Dryfus refused to give up. Twenty-six days after being admitted to the hospital, Dryfus went home. He continues to thrive today.

Frankie’s Friends, BluePearl Veterinary Partners and all of the veterinarians in charge of his case took care of Dryfus’ bill and made sure he was able to go home to his loving family.
