Frodo's Story

We had been looking for the right dog for our family for weeks. My sons, ages 5 and 10 really wanted a dog, and I knew that the right dog would help calm and reassure my boys, not scare them.   One day I saw Frodo (formerly Niko) on the HSNT Facebook page, and with his gorgeous red hair and freckles, I just had to meet him! The minute we met, I knew he was the one, but I had to bring my boys back to meet him to be sure. From the first moment of meeting Frodo, they were in love. These days, they play fetch, they share the couch, they take turns being each others pillows. When my kids are having a rough day, Frodo is there for them.  Unfortunately, Frodo was heartworm positive. We have recently had him treated at the

HSNT Clinic (for free). We are so grateful for the treatment he has received which was covered when we adopted him! All in all, adding Frodo to our family has been the best decision we’ve made. He is very, very loved. 


AND HE’S HEARTWORM FREE!!!! Thank you HSNT!
