Dear Readers, here is your introduction to FRAM

In two weeks my Mom will be meeting Fram in person in Durham England and I will tell you all about the meeting and what this extraordinary dog is like. FRAM means polar bear in Roumanian. He was given this name by volunteers who thought he resembled a polar bear.
His paw was hacked off in Romania by a gang of vicious youths and he was rescued and brought to the Uk by A Better Life Dog Rescue on August 18, after the charity learned of this horrific event and injury. According to the dog’s foster parent, he is a loving and trusting dog despite what he has gone through. Ms Kipling, his carer, said “He has a lovely nature and his tail is always wagging”.
The rescue is currently trying to raise 7,500 pounds for Fram to receive a biopic limb from TV supervet Noel Fitzpatrick.
