Frodo, a pitbull who was given an awful start at life due to Michael Vick’s inability to sympathize with animals who never deserved what he did to them, has sadly passed away.
“The incredible ‘Vick dog’ era is over.
On Saturday, we had the great honor and privilege of attending the transition of the sweet, shy Frodo as his family helped him pass over to be with the rest of the dogs from the group.
He was the last of 48 brave survivors from that game changing case. Seized and rescued in 2007, we estimate that he would’ve been 15 years old – and THIS is the important part – the last 14 years of his life were spent being pampered like a prince with the Ramirez family and dogs. Sweet Frodo – How we loved him. He was one of the bravest survivors we’ve ever met.
We didn’t realize at the time that Jonny Justice had just passed away in a private moment with his people, Cris & Jen, just two days earlier. Oh Jonny! We thought you might live forever.
And finally – in the first week of October, Letti de Little’s sweet man Uba passed over. We’ve been grappling to find the words, and now Uba’s friends have pushed that door wide open.
Warm sympathies and gratitude to the families. We’ll come back with more on each special dog and the lives they lived, but for now, it’s time to have a little cry and say good-bye to them all.

This quote from the family that took in this brave soldier is absolutely heart wrenching. They took in poor Frodo after being used and abused by an evil man. The absolute worst part about all of this to me is that Mike Vick was able to not only be a free man, but to play in The NFL again.
Why do we as a society not value these lives of man’s best friends to a higher standard like we do humans? This dog never meant any harm, he was raised and conditioned into being a monster by a monster. Just absolutely pathetic behavior from anyone who lays hand on a furry creature.
I’m glad to know Frodo was taken in by people who loved him and gave him the whole he deserved.
It’s people and reasons like this Pit Bulls are given the worst reputation known to men even when they are the most loving and caring dogs you will ever come across.
Burn in hell Mike Vick, I hope you get what’s coming to you.
