Rez  is a big huge lover boy who is about a year old and weighs around 75 lbs.  He adores my children and does really well with the his foster's 2 dogs.  He has been introduced to cats at and is not really sure what to make of these small creatures that make funny noises but he has not made any aggressive move towards them at all.  He does get a little overly interested and starts following them but you can tell him no and he listens.  The older cat who has will gently nip at him to let him know to back off and he does.  He is completely housebroken and we are working on being in a crate.  He goes in and out of the crate willingly throughout the day he just isn't a fan of the door being closed.  As far as house manners he still has a little to learn but you rarely have to correct him more than once and he is very sensitive to the tone of your voice.  He is very very timid and just wants to make you happy.  As long as you clearly communicate in his terms what you want he will do it. 

We would not recommend him for a house with very small children that are not accustomed to large dogs only because he is big and a bit clumsy and could knock them down but he really loves to interact with kiddos.  When he first met his foster's youngest, he crouched down on the ground in front of the little girl to make himself look smaller.  In a household with very dominant dogs, he would just fade into the background and could easily be bullied.  He is a serious couch potato who would benefit from somebody that will encourage exercise with him and I don't think he will be anybody's jogging partner.  We have not heard him bark a single time since he has been here, which hasn't been long but we do not believe he is a barker.

About Cody's Friends Rescue

About Our Rescue Group...

About us: Cody was the first pet I owned as an adult. He was a Shih Tzu that I bought unknowingly, from a Puppy Mill. He fought for his life and barely survived, suffering for the first few months of his life. From then on I was stirred by a ferocious passion to save as many dogs as I could through networking with other rescue groups and saving the ones I could off of cold streets and unwanted in shelters. Cody did not live a very long life due to a weakened body, but I was able to love on him for eight good years! He will always be loved and forever remembered. With over 400 dogs rescued so far, we ARE making a difference!!
Thank you for visiting and considering a rescue........................

Our Adoption Process...

Thank you for adopting and not buying!!! Every week hundreds of highly adoptabledogs are put to death by local shelters. Most people would be amazed at the purebred and beautiful dogs available, if they walked into their neighborhood shelter.

Rescue organizations, like mine, work hard to save as many as we possibly can but is a never ending process with breeders and Puppy Mills selling unhealthy animals to the public. If you EVER saw a puppy mill you would NEVER buy again!

All of my dogs are neutered or spayed, vet checked, completely vaccinated, wormed, groomed and checked for heart worms. They are all are current on Heart worm medicine, flea, and tick medications. Upon request, they are all microchipped as well.

Adoption fee is $200 to $250 (older "friends' can be less, please inquire. Puppies are $300 - Besides fully vetting all dogs, some of of the dogs I rescue, 1 in 5 I rescue have heart worms which is very expensive to treat. I also take in dogs who need surgeries and are close to death.
** Please note that I do not usually adopt out my dogs with children under four years of age.
