Police believe that she may have been mauled by her two dogs
The 48-year-old is said to have been attacked by the two dogs, Masha, a three-year-old female Alaskan husky mix, and Rachirius Maximus, a three-year-old pit bull.
She had both canines since they were puppies, with Masha arriving at the age of three weeks and Rachirius Maximus arriving at the age of nine months.
The BARC Animal Shelter in Houston told KHOU11.com that the canines were engaged in the horrific assault.
The woman’s husband has also turned the two dogs over to the shelter where they are set to be euthanized on Monday.
The Mail report that Frangoine had been a devoted mother to the two puppies – regularly posted pictures of the pair online.
In 2019, she stated she was “blessed” after Rachirius Maximus and Masha produced pups together, just a year after she rescued the former from security duties in Dubai.

“I came to the United States with my two brothers all the way from Dubai,” she captioned a 2018 photo of the Pitbull.
“I was brought to silently guard a sheiks compound but found myself conflicted between the job I was hired to do and my kind and loving nature.
“I chose to leave my past of high profile bodyguard duties and start my life loving and protecting my new masters.”
According to the Houston Chronicle the woman’s death is being treated as an accident after a medical expert deemed that she had suffered “blunt force trauma of the neck with penetrating injuries and mechanical asphyxia.”
However, Police say that they are awaiting the autopsy results to determine the 48-year-old’s official cause of death.
