Facts about Cody

  • Breed: Great Dane
  • Color: Merle
  • Age: Adult
  • Size: X-Large 101 lbs (46 kg) or more
  • Sex: Male
Cody is a 5 yr old Merle who came from the shelter. He is a very handsome fellow and is a good 135 pounds. He is good with other dogs and cats and has lived with them previously but is not good with children. He is a very sweet dog but a little bit nervous and will bark when he gets upset about something. We believe that he doesn’t care for kids running around too fast so he will need to go to a home with no children.
Cody came to MAGDRL in October (5).

Update October 28, 2016
Cody is doing really well getting settled into his foster home. He is inquisitive but does have good house manners. He is fully house-trained and has not had any accidents. He also does well in his crate and though he whines when he first goes in, an awesome Kong filled with peanut butter and treats helps to keep him occupied. He knows quite a bit of obedience and is treat motivated. He is very mellow and will seek out the most comfortable spot to lay on and remain there for much of his day in typical Dane fashion. He walks OK on his gentle leader and we are working on enhancing his leash walking manners. He is very receptive to positive encouragement but does need a lot of positive feedback to understand when he's doing the right thing. He is getting along fine with his 30-pound foster brother. He really is a sweet, mellow guy!

Update December 30, 2016
Cody continues to do very well in his foster home. He is a Dane that just wants a quiet place to lay around - he is very low energy and enjoys a low activity home. He is great on car rides (as long as he has a comfortable bed). He does well while boarded and plays great with all the other dogs. He loves his crate and goes into it willingly when the door is left open and during the day when the family is at work. He gets along great with his small foster brother. He does exhibit some mild guarding of high-value toys and bones only with the dog (not with humans) in the form of light growling. He is a good walker on his gentle leader, but gets excited and jumps and barks when he sees other dogs which the foster family is working on - this is a behavior that can be adjusted through training. He doesn't really care to go out to high-activity places like dog stores, etc. He gets nervous and whines. He is polite and open to all strangers that he's met, including new dog walkers. He eats well and does his business on a regular schedule - a very healthy guy. He just prefers to be at home laying on his bed. He's a very relaxed homebody.

About Mid-Atlantic Great Dane Rescue, Virginia Chapter

About Our Rescue Group...

The Mid-Atlantic Great Dane Rescue League, Inc. (MAGDRL) was organized in 1979 to serve the seven states of the Mid-Atlantic region. It now covers NY, NJ, PA, MD, DE, VA, DC, and WV.

The organization is a DC corporation and has a charitable tax-exemption under code 501(c)(3) of the Internal Revenue Code.

MAGDRL is staffed completely by volunteers. Therefore, 100% of the funds donated to our organization goes to helping our Great Danes.

We do not have a central location. Our dogs live in the homes of volunteers who have offered to be foster families for our dogs.
