Beautiful 5 yr old male in Atlanta, GA

"Frodo is also a very large boy. He is very, very shy and scared. In the yard he ran from me cowering but would approach me as long as a I was sitting or crouched down. He will let you love on him and pet him but flinches each time you touch him. He had an open/draining abscess on his chest from a bite wound. It has been cleaned and is healing. He will need a patient handler to help him learn to trust. The shelter has him listed as 5 years old also." -Shelter Volunteer

He's listed on Petfinder, but has no information or photo.

I have not met this dog in person. I'm simply trying to pass his picture around to those familiar with his breed, hoping that someone will show some interest in him. He's had no offers from any rescues, he's injured and his time is up soon.

He originally came into the shelter with a GSD Mix who was also on death row but that dog's owners claimed him earlier today. They did not know this boy so it's assumed they met while on the lam.

I also want to post this in the L&F section but I don't want to spam the boards. He has to be missing his family.

(I'm new so please forgive me if I made any mistakes)

He could be a great companion, he just needs a chance if someone will open their heart.

Update: He was adopted Tuesday and officially left the building today (after being neutered) by a retired K9 officer and his wife. They live on 9 acres of fenced in property so that works out really well for this lucky pup :)

Thanks everyone!
