Meet gorgeous zzCody!

zzCody is very sweet and very loving! He will make a very good companion. He is a shepherd mix about 3 years old. He also kind of looks like he could part Akita. But regardless he is one loving dog full of love to give!

zzCody Loves to play with other dogs, so I know he would enjoy having a playmate in his new family. But he is completely content being in the company of his humans, for that is what he loves most!

He shows most of his energy when he has not seen his humans for a few hours, for example in the morning when I come to get him up or coming home from being gone somewhere. He just loves you so much and wants to give you all the love he's been holding inside from missing you!  He's always happy and constantly wagging his tail. His goal in life is just to Love you!

zzCody is housebroken and can go a while before needing to go out. He also isn't a marker either which is the first for me, especially with owning all females. He is crate trained and sleeps in one at night. As of right now he weighs 40lbs, but will probably be at least 50lbs.

zzCody likes chewing on bones and like toys and balls. He also is a quiet dog! He might bark once while he's outside, but does not happen often, but inside he is quiet and does not bark. He's very gentle with taking food from your hands. He also walks well on a leash and enjoys going on our daily walks. It would be best if he has a home that has a yard with secure fence, for he likes having space to run around outside.

 Disclaimer: This dog is a participant in the Paws in the City Guest Dog Program, so ongoing care and custody are provided by the foster, not by Paws in the City.  A $200 adoption fee is due at the time of adoption and will go to the foster.   To meet this dog, please fill out an adoption application at the Paws in the City website

About Paws In The City

About Our Rescue Group...

Paws In The City® is committed to supporting the City of Dallas Animal Shelter by hosting off-site adoptions for the dogs and spay/neuter education and fundraising through specific outreach programs.

Paws In The City is a nonprofit, 501 (c) 3 organization committed to ending overpopulation, abuse and neglect of Dallas dogs and cats . We are an all volunteer organization with no paid staff.

Paws In The City is committed to the following goals:

 Rescuing homeless dogs and cats from the City of Dallas animal shelters by sponsoring off-site adoptions to find these abandoned animals terrific, loving homes…often many of these wonderful pets are days away from being euthanized simply because there are not enough homes... a tragedy we are determined to end;

 Providing a comforting and positive environment for adoptions;

 Providing medical care to neglected, abused, and injured animals through our outreach efforts;

 Educating the public on responsible pet ownership; and

 Supporting spay and neuter programs…the simple, common sense solution to ending the number of unwanted dogs and cats on our streets and in our city shelters.

Come Meet Our Pets...

Otherwise, once we receive your application we can make arrangements for you to meet the animal. Usually, the foster parent will bring the animal to your home.

Our Adoption Process...

Requirements to Adopt a Dog in Foster Care: Before adopting, we require an approved pre-adoption application, an interview, a home check, a signed adoption contract and an adoption fee (dogs=$200 / puppies=$250 / cats=$125) to cover the animal’s health-related expenses and boarding while in our care. All of our animals are spayed or neutered, are current on shots, tested and de-wormed.
