Howdy, I'm Hoss and just like my Bonanza namesake I'm a gentle giant who'd do anything for my family.  I'm a 54lb, 6 yr old Aussie mix, Just look at my beautiful silver markings!!!

I'm eager to please and full of fun. I love cuddles and my tail is always wagging. I know how to sit, and I'm learning shake and stay. I am house trained/crate trained and I love going on car rides. I know how to sit nicely in the truck cab and enjoy the view. 

My gorgeous smile will win you over and my big goofy paws and fluffy wiggle butt would love to find a place to rest at your home. I'm a good pub dog and enjoy going out to places with my foster mom.

I have a sad back story in that my human momma and poppa both died and I was left chained up on a rural property until a kind rescue group stepped in and got me to safety before the cold weather set in. 

I'm eager to please and promise to be loyal to you for the rest of my days. How bout we meet up sometime soon?

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.
