Frodo (ADOPTED) is one of our newest additions. He is a great all around guy - calm and happy to hang out quietly with you when inside, yet very lively and ready to go when outside. He listens well, is extremely friendly, super happy and and pretty good on leash. He know 'sit', is very compliant and lets anyone handle him. We also believe that he is house trained; and he doesn't seem to care about chickens (if you have them). Young and playful, Frodo loves to play ball, and is definitely a 'ball dog.'  He is simply the best companion - satisfied to hang out under your desk with you while you work.

Everyone who has met him has fallen in love with him or remarked, "Wow, what a great dog!"

Frodo weighs 37 lbs. and we believe he is 12-18 mos. old. He is currently recovering from some minor injuries, and limps on his front leg. X-rays show that his bones and joints are fine. With supervision to take it easy, we believe he should heal up and be back to normal again. We will be monitoring his progress through his foster and will keep you informed when new information about him becomes available.

Welcome Frodo!
