Cruz is a dog that needs  lots of love and petting and even more petting!  He is an “attention hog”.    He is a smart dog and does extremely well with routine.  He loves to go on walks and lay outside in the sun.  He responds to repeated directions.  For example if you say “Do you want to go out” he knows to go to the back door for a quick pee or poop break.  If you say “Do you want to go for a walk” he goes absolutely crazy and runs to the front door because we go for walks through the front door.  I ask him “Want your crunch?” and he knows he is getting fed.  He has a mat that he will lay on when I say “go on your mat”.  He will knock over his water bowl when empty.  ON his walks he is a “tough guy” and likes to bark at other dogs.  He likes to sleep in bed with you, but will sleep in his crate. 


His only bad habits are,   he will growl if he has food and you try and take it away from him.  He will get into the garbage can if it is left out.  He is very good in the car.  


Neutered and up to date on vaccinations.  


Cruz is good with cats and older children, over 12.

About Castle of Dreams Animal Rescue

About Our Rescue Group...

Castle-of-Dreams Animal Rescue (CODAR) is a 501 C (3) Rescue Group incorporated in June of 2003. Please note, we are not a shelter. All animals are in foster care until adopted. We truly makes dreams come true for all animals rescued through our organization. We save animals from high kill shelters throughout the east coast. Our main goal is to open a No-Kill shelter in NJ. We plan on raising enough money to open our shelter through donations and various fund raising events that our creative and innovative volunteer staff coordinate. Codar is always looking to add new volunteers that are willing to aid us in our mission.
