Frodo is a survivor who is looking for a loving furever home. He started out life on the streets and lived there for months before he was rescued and given a second chance at the good life! Despite his rough life, he really wants to be a good dog and learn. Fetch with a Chuck-it is his favorite but walks also do the trick. Frodo loves anything spherical. Tennis balls are his favorite and be careful around him and any type of basketball or soccer ball. He will take them and show them who is boss! Tough toys he loves because they are a challenge.

Frodo would love an adult only house where he can be the center of attention and ideally one with a fenced in yard where he can romp to his heart's content. Frodo would love a home where he can have continued training. He is an excited boy that loves life. He is working on containing his excitement while on walks and needs a human who wants to work on his skills so he can be the best boy.

Frodo has spent some time at doggy daycare to socialize with dogs and had a great time playing with them in supervised environments. Do you have the love and patience in your heart to rescue a pup in need of a loving home? Then come meet this sweet boy!
