Frodo is a party animal. He loves to have a good time, all the time. He's also super smart and very sweet, so if you consider yourself more of an extrovert, you may have found an excellent wingman in Frodo.

Frodo will play with you all day if you let him. He especially loves to play with lacrosse balls, and enjoys showing up the high school team by making an occasional interception. He also loves being loved on, and gives lots of love in return. The most adorable thing about him is his one eyebrow. He is a very expressive dog anyways. You won't ever struggle to know how Frodo is feeling, but his eyebrow puts him over the top.

Frodo is house trained, walks pretty well on a leash, and is well-mannered when left alone in the house. He is very treat motivated, and will do just about anything for a snack.

In fact, Frodo is in APA's Canine Good Citizen (CGC) program and works with a volunteer trainer several times a week toward the goal of passing the American Kennel Club's CGC test! Frodo has been working hard to be a dog you can take anywhere with pride. To pass the CGC test, a dog must demonstrate obedience and general reliability in real world situations. Dogs in APA's CGC program learn to sit and down, walk nicely on leash, sit calmly when approached by strangers or another dog, won't approach people or dogs without permission, greet people appropriately, stay in a sit or down until told and come when called. As part of APA's CGC program you can work with APA to continue to build a training relationship with Frodo after adoption and get officially CGC certified for free!
