Adoption Fee: $300
Cody is an adorable Eski-Pom-Spitz mix, weighing in at 50 pounds, who was quite the adventurer in his youth. He used to love hiking and kayaking; he's definitely an outdoorsman. Now having reached the ripe young age of 7, Cody is looking for a new person or family to get him back into some daily exercise routines.
He loves to be near his people, so someone that is home quiet a bit would suit him the most!
He gets up in the morning goes and straight outside for some outdoor time. He definitely wants to be the alpha dog in the home, but not in a mean way. Maybe it's his "small dog complex"?? So be prepared for proper introductions and being patient for them to adjust; he's a sweet, good boy who needs a sweet, loving home. If it's really nice he prefers to stay out for a while (mid 60's-70's). He has fun chasing squirrels, birds, and barks friendly and happily to our neighbor dogs. He would do best with a fenced yard that he can enjoy.
He's playful, but not high energy for more than a few minutes a day. Someone who wants a lapdog or a bestie in animal form will be thrilled with Cody. His ideal home involves someone with alot of time and love for him. After his daily exercise routine, he is just as happy to snuggle in for rubs and snuggles. He really is a sweetie!
Cody is very quick to learn and easily trained. He is very smart and well behaved. He stops at the doorways to rooms he is not to go and camps out there until I come back out. If he is outside, he will come in whenever called by me. He is house trained and crate trained.
Cody is dog friendly, cat friendly and kid friendly. As mentioned, he a bit bossy. He isn't combative it is more like a competition for Cody and he wants to be the one in charge of the other dogs. He is good with strangers he meets and will sniff them.
(DOB 09/27/2016) As part of Cody’s $300 adoption fee, he will is neutered, microchipped, up to date on age-appropriate vaccines, and current on his monthly flea/tick and heartworm preventatives.
