Default Fabulously Friendly Frodo Baggins seeks forever home

This gorgeous boy is Frodo. He's 12 and is a black Labrador cross (he looks very Lab like to me). Isn't he handsome?



Frodo is a very sweet natured, delightful boy who likes to be close to people and is excellent company. He is left for up to 5 hours in his foster home and might be happy with full-time workers provided they could guarantee a proper lunchtime visit each day.

Frodo is being fostered in Hampshire, for Oldies Club. He's now ready to find a forever home. You can see more photos and find out more about him here:
http://www.oldies.org.uk/?p=108765

Frodo is good with other dogs :-) He lived all his life with another dog before coming into rescue and is currently fostered with a male and female dog. He is not keen on overly attentive dogs and likes to take things slowly when greeting dogs, preferring polite greetings - good boy!



Frodo hasn't met young children while in foster, but pays no attention to them on walks. However, due to his advancing years, he would prefer to live in an adult-only home or one where children are dog-savvy teenagers. He can't live with cats.



Frodo is quite excitable when preparing for a walk. He is currently walked in a harness. His recall is not brilliant presently, so he is walked on a long line at the park. He is happy with one long walk or two shorter ones. He travels well in the car.



Frodo sleeps a lot and is quite lazy at getting up in the mornings - for those who complain about dogs barking to get up in the early morning, perhaps Frodo is the new companion for you?! He is not a fan of the rain, or water in general. He would chase small animals such as squirrels and birds if he could.

The best home for Frodo would be one where he could live with another dog and/or where someone is home much of the day, if he was to be an only dog. He is fit and healthy and loves being with people, so would love to be with his new owner/family as much as possible.

Frodo is neutered, chipped etc. He has a few skin tags and a fatty lump - he's been seen by a vet since coming into rescue, who advised he has no cause for concern. In fact the vet would have placed him at 3-4 years younger than he is, since he is in good condition and has an excellent level of fitness :-)

Frodo's page with full info and our adoption policies/contact details, can be found here:
http://www.oldies.org.uk/?p=108765

Oldies Club rehomes across the UK, providing potential adopters are happy to travel to the foster home to meet the dog, following a successful home visit.

Please mention Labrador Forums if you enquire about adopting Frodo.

Frodo hasn't had any enquiries yet, bless him :-(

Not sure why, he is gorgeous, dog-friendly and sounds a total sweetheart. I've updated the first post with photos/more info.
