In May 2017, a Croatian resident spotted a starving pup named Frodo wandering the streets.
The poorly pooch was covered in mange, his eyes were infected and he looked hideous.
He was taken vet and animal rescuer Klaudija Sigurnjak who was absolutely shocked about Frodo’s condition.
“I could hardly believe it was really a dog. I immediately set about rescuing him.” Klaudija told The Dodo.
“He was full of fleas and ticks, and starved to the bone. We were not sure whether or not he’d survive.”
Although Frodo’s right eye was too infected to be saved, he proved to be a tough cookie and eventually made a full recovery mentally and physically.
“We never dreamt that he would be so beautiful.” Klaudija told The Dodo.
Now little Frodo has found his forever home!
