My name is Melina and am approximately 2  years old. In the shelter I weighed only 48 lbs, but am slowly beginning to gain some weight!! My foster mommy has been feeding me super yummy food to get me up to about 60lbs. I am a major cuddle bug who has energy, but I can calm down when I am supposed to “lax” with my foster mom. I am completely potty trained (no accidents at all), love to chew on bones, and play with my toys. I do get kinda excited sometimes and jump up, but am quick to get down when I am told (my foster mom is working on this with me).
Everyone loves to call me moo moo pibble because of my markings?. I know how to sit, shake, and stay when told. On the medical side I am up to date on my shots, heart worm negative, and spade. My preference of “friends” are larger breeds/or puppies (because I’m kinda big and get excited, but super gentle with babies). I have manners, am very polite when taking my treats, bones, and food. I have a very sweet temperament as I do not get upset if you want to touch my bone or food while I’m snacking.  I am beautiful..what else are you looking for??

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.
