found a new home!
Plenty of my friends are looking
for one too. Find a pet to adopt.
I am already neutered, housetrained, up to date with shots, good with kids, and good with dogs.
Here is what else Cody's foster family had to say:
Cody seems to be in good health, he has nice clean teeth and a beautiful soft coat. He is a moderate energy dog. He is pretty calm and relaxed in the home during the day but he does enjoy getting out for a daily walk and also enjoys play time with his toys everyday and having a good run in the yard. Cody is a low shedding dog that will need to visit the groomers occasionally to keep him looking his best.
Cody is pretty friendly with everyone including children. He does bark at strangers coming into the home, but will calm down once he gets a chance to smell them. It does seem that he is afraid of strangers coming over and it does help if they kneel down to his level and offer him a treat. He then doesn't see them as so intimidating to him. He has barked at strangers on our walks but he has been improving and sometimes doesn't bark at all during our walks. He has never shown any aggression and he is not a shy dog. Cody is really good with other dogs and loves to run around and play with other dogs in the yard. I don't have any cats in the home, but I don't think cats would be a problem as he dosen't have much of a prey drive at all. He often sits in the yard calmly watching the squirrels with no intentions of trying to chase them. All this guy wants to do is play with others.
When we leave the house Cody does get crated, and he will whine for a few minutes when we leave but settles down after a few minutes and goes to sleep. He shows no fear towards anything except strangers entering the home. Cody absolutely loves getting attention and snuggling up with family. He also loves going for long walks and playing with his toys, and chewing on an elk antler. He also enjoys some down time to relax and take a nap. He loves sitting in the window to soak up the sun and watch the squirrels and birds outside. Cody is pretty quiet in the home. He only barks if a stranger comes over or if he is trying to initiate play with another dog.
Cody has pretty good house manners for the most part. He has stolen the odd slipper and shoe. Once he is told to drop it he does. He has also attempted to lift the lid to the garbage can once as well. For this reason he is crated when we leave the house as he is still learning what he can and can't do in the home. This little guy does need some work with his basic commands. He does know laydown and drop it. We are currently working on sit, stay and come. Cody is fully house trained and will go to the back door when he needs to go out. Cody is crate trained and goes into the crate with no issues as long as you put some treats in it then he is happy to go in. He does sleep in the crate at night. We keep the crate in our bedroom and there is no whining at all if he is in the same room that your in. He feels better when he is with his people and knows your close by. Cody walks good on the leash, and he is not a puller. When making him walk with a short leash for him to walk at your side he does really well. Cody has never tried to escape the yard but he does need to be watched around the door because he will try to run out. Cody rides really good in the car. Sometimes he will attempt to get on the drivers lap but as soon as you say no he will curl up in the passengers seat and laydown or go to the back seat and look out the window.
I would love to see Cody go to a home where someone is home more than not home, as he does love being around people. He would be great as a second dog in the home as long as the other dog is playful. Or he would be fine as the only dog to get all the attention and love but would like the a dog friend to visit sometimes. I feel that he would be fine in a home with older children (8 or older) so they can handle his excitement when he plays or when he greets you when you come home. He can get over excited at times and will try jumping up at you.
I think Cody would love a backyard to run and play with his toys or to run and play with another dog friend, as this little guy does like being active. I do not feel that he would be good for apartment living due to his barking at strangers, since even while taking him out he will come across many strangers that may overwhelm him and cause him to bark.
If you think Cody would be a good addition to your family, please submit an application for consideration.
