He was known as Frodo, perhaps due to the shaggy remains of his fur that seemed a bit similar to the curly hair of Frodo Baggins from The Lord of the Rings. But for some time, though, the hopeless stray dog was more similar to Gollum.
A few months back, a person noticed a hungry doggy roaming around in Croatia. The little animal was covered with mange and had a really bad eye infection. As stated by some people, Frodo looked terrifying like the devil. Nevertheless, he required help and was quickly taken to expert dog rescuer Klaudija Sigurnjak.
“I was stunned,” Klaudija shared. “I could hardly believe it was really a dog. I immediately set about rescuing him.” After gaining Frodo’s trust with food, Sigurnjak provided all the attention and love the doggy required to begin a new life. Initially, though, it appeared as a hopeless job. “He was full of fleas and ticks, and starved to the bone. We were not sure whether or not he’d survive.”
But regardless that no one could save Frodo’s right eye, he turned out to be the strongest fighter. Along with his fur, Frodo has regrown his morale also. “His transformation was phenomenal,” Sigurnjak shared. “We never dreamt that he would be so beautiful.” After his incredible rehabilitation, Frodo was put up for adoption, and instantly found a forever home.
