Kodi's Info...

Kodi's Story...
Kodi is is a wonderful family dog. He is well socialized and behaves nicely in the house. Because of his size and tail he may not do well with small children and toddlers, although he would be gentle with them. I would not hesitate to recommend him for any family, as he is such a great dog. He has the typical Boxer need for human companionship. It is hard to believe someone gave him up as he is a gem. Kodi is approximately 2 - 3 years old and weighs approximately 70 lbs.


Here is what else his foster family had to say:


Hi, my name’s Kodi and my foster parents absolutely love me. My foster Mom says that at 66 lbs of muscle I am a lot of dog so it’s a good thing I’m a really great pup. I am a Boxer mixed with something very handsome like a Great Dane or a Rhodesian Ridgeback. My fur is very soft and clean and I don’t shed very much. I am very Boxer like in the way I use my paws and in my energy level which means I am really active for a short period and then I crash. My foster Mom says I am a smart and well balanced dog – I get along with the 4 dogs here and I even won over the grumpy females – the ‘fraidy’ cat never once ran away from me since she knew I wouldn't hurt her ( I do like to lick her a lot and want to play with her so sometimes she bashes me across the face) – I am completely housebroken and I am not destructive – I am crate trained but never crated as I am trustworthy – I am sweet and affectionate – I know commands like sit (when I am excited I kind of half sit cuz my tail is wagging so hard), shake a paw, lie down and I come when I am called. I could use some leash training as I do pull and am very strong, but I am very food motivated which makes training easier. My foster Mom walks me on a gentle leader, and I got a lot of treats for not objecting to it when she used it for the first time. She called me a “rock star” and said it worked very well. I am good when I see other dogs on a walk – I wag my tail and that’s about it. I am a joy to have around the house and my foster mom says I am “move in perfect”.. I was very hyper during my first day here and then I settled down and fit right in. I love to snuggle and burrow my head into my human. I do bark outside when I see strangers and I like to chase squirrels. My foster Mom says I am the noisiest and sloppiest drinker around and she has to put a towel under my water bowl, but she says that is my only flaw. If I am told “no” I listen well and stop what I am doing. I am very social and well behaved. More than anything, I want to be a good boy. I sometimes jump up when I am very excited, but not always. My listening skills are usually good but sometimes when I am very excited they slip a little. I really like to play with toys in the house but outside I like to run with my friends.


My foster Mom thinks I am very sweet and gentle but may not be a candidate for very small children because of my size and my almost always wagging tail. I would never mean to hurt anyone but when I get excited I am kind of strong and a bit of a goof. I am a happy go lucky guy with a heart of gold and a strong need for human companionship. I would do well with another playful dog or two, or a human to keep me company much of the time. A house with older kids and lots of activity would suit me well but so would a quiet house if someone was with me. I could use a good walk or run every day or some time in the dog park. I love to run around the back yard with the other dogs and I then love to lie beside my human.


I am great in the car and I am not afraid of household things like vacuum cleaners and lawn mowers. I am bold and not afraid of people or things. My foster Mom likes to stick her hand in my food when I am eating and handle me when I eat to make sure I have no food issues. I don’t. I am a pretty well rounded guy and I love my humans. My foster Dad thinks that nobody should adopt me because he wants me to stay here. He is so funny!


If you think this wonderful boy would fit well into your family situation, please submit an application for consideration.

Why Adoption is a Great Option

Kodi, a Hamilton Boxer/Great Dane dog was adopted! Here's how you can benefit by looking at adoption as an option to buying a Boxer/Great Dane for sale in Hamilton, or seeking a Boxer/Great Dane dog from a breeder in Hamilton.

  1. Rescues and shelter volunteers in Hamilton 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 Hamilton 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 Boxer/Great Dane breeders who help with Boxer/Great Dane rescue. One puppy or kitten adopted in Hamilton paves the way for another one to be saved.
