Unbelievable story of a street dog named “Frodo”
They called him Frodo. Probably because his shaggy look resembled the curls of Frodo Baggins from Lord of the Rings. But even before then, he was the miserable Golum in search of his precious.
Last May, someone saw a pup starving to his death, wandering around the streets of Croatia. The tiny creature was covered with mange, mud and blood, and his eyes were almost gone by a severe infection. According to people who saw him, Frodo looked scary like the devil. Nonetheless, he needed help and was soon taken to veteran animal rescuer Klaudija Sigurnjak.
“I was stunned, I could hardly believe it was really a dog. I immediately set about rescuing him. After winning his trust with food, I gave all the care the puppy needed to start his life anew. At first, however, it seemed like an impossible task. He was full of fleas and ticks, and starved to the bone. We were not sure whether or not he’d survive. But the fighter eventually did.”
Sadly, the doctor could not save Frodo’s right eye.But, together with his fur, Frodo has regrown his spirit as well. “His transformation was phenomenal,” Sigurnjak said. “We never dreamt that he would be so beautiful.” After his amazing recovery, Frodo was put up for adoption, and quickly found his new family.
