No one's happier to have company than Frido. He loves attention and is eager to be with people, especially when they brush his beautiful coat or take him for rides on the golf cart. He's also been great with cats and has even done well with a kitten in his foster home. Frido can meet other dogs on leash, but would probably be happiest as the only dog in a home. He is reluctant to go into new houses or buildings the first time, but he is getting better about this especially when there are treats.Born in 2008, Frido is sweet, gentle, mellow and housetrained. He's a wonderful listener and easy to walk on a leash. He has already lost a lot of weight and is currently working on dropping even more pounds to get down to a healthy weight. He gets insulin and takes medication for diabetes, Cushing's disease and pain in his leg. Despite his medical needs, Frido is a very happy and easy boy. He's perfectly happy to go on short walks, and he'd do great in a quiet, loving home where he can spend hours hanging out with his special person on the couch.
