Eleven days later, a stranger called Ashley after finding Frank. The next morning, they were reunited.

"His tail started going, he was home and he knew it. You could see the stress just melt off his face," Ashley said.

Frank is mostly OK. He had some frostbite on his paws and tail and Ashley has already gotten him treatment.
