COLUMBUS, Ohio (WCMH) – Ludo, a dog looking for a home at the Franklin County Dog Shelter and Adoption Center, is as relaxed as they come.

FCDS Behavior Coordinator Brandy Trott said the 7-year-old American bulldog mix is remarkably friendly and would be a great buddy for someone with an easygoing lifestyle.

“He loves his belly rubbed, I think he would be like your perfect couch companion for your Netflix binges,” Trott said. “Just give him a bone to chew on or something while you just hang out at home.”

Trott also took a guess at Ludo’s favorite genre of streaming shows.

“I think he’s a comedy guy,” Trott said.

Being an older dog, he may need a few more checkups with the vet than a younger dog. Besides that, Ludo has been getting around just fine, Trott said. Further, he also knows some tricks.

“He’ll work for food nonstop, loves his snacks,” Trott said. “Already knows sit, shake, and down from what we’ve discovered so far.”

Ludo is also a big fan of chew toys and prefers stuffed ones or tennis balls. He’ll also play fetch, but Trott joked that he’s working on the part where he brings the ball back.

Ludo is available for meet-and-greets at the Franklin County Dog Shelter, located at 4340 Tamarack Blvd. in Columbus. Below are some additional dogs up for adoption as well:
