Cody's Info...

Cody's Story...
Cody is a beautiful, regal dog born approximately November 2011 and weighs approximately 35 pounds. Cody is very active and plays hard and non-stop with her canine foster sibling who is an Aussie. Because Cody is so active, she is a great sleeper. She quiets down at night and wants to snuggle watching TV with her caregivers (in your lap if you'll allow it!)

Cody’s foster family describes her as intelligent, capable and willing to learn. She has taken well to the training (has learned ‘sit’ and is working on ‘lay down’). She is food-motivated which helps tremendously with her training. She has quickly established the confines of the fence as 'her yard' and is territorial (barks) at cars/people walking by the house. She is timid and shy if someone enters the fence, however, and shows no signs of aggression towards people.

She has done well with older respectful children and the other dogs to which she has been exposed. She might do best in a home with another active, playful dog to help expend some of the great energy she exudes. She has not been observed around cats so we would want any introductions to cats be done slowly and with proper supervision.

After a month in the care of her foster family, she's a very loving dog and definitely seems capable of having a strong bond. She is working on potty training and manners like any young dog.

Cody was rescued by her foster family who spent a month trying to find her owners. No one has come forward for her, so she is now in need of a forever home. The vet believes she is a Belgian Malinois mix, also called a Belgian Shepherd. Like German Shepherds, the Belgian Shepherd is often trained for police work.

Why Adoption is a Great Option

Cody, a Steilacoom Belgian Malinois dog was adopted! Here's how you can benefit by looking at adoption as an option to buying a Belgian Malinois for sale in Steilacoom, or seeking a Belgian Malinois dog from a breeder in Steilacoom.

  1. Rescues and shelter volunteers in Steilacoom already know the personality and tendencies of their pets. This means they can match you with the right pet. That will makes it much easier transition to owning a pet for yourself and your new pet.
  2. On average adoption fees are much less than you'd pay a Steilacoom breeder, or pet store. Plus most often rescue pets have already been to the veterinarian for a check-up, had a round of vaccinations, and are spayed or neutered. That is a lot of savings!
  3. You will become a hero, and give a needy dog or cat a loving home. In fact, there are even Belgian Malinois breeders who help with Belgian Malinois rescue. One puppy or kitten adopted in Steilacoom paves the way for another one to be saved.
