Kody ~ ADOPTED
Hi, my name is Kodiac. That's "Kody" for short. My foster
mom says I am a puppy in a big boy body. I am now 1 year
old and about 40 pounds. I have a nice athletic body and
love to chase frisbees, balls, and my foster brothers and
sisters. As a matter of fact, my foster mom calls me "a
party in a box" but also a "love sponge." She has a lot
of nicknames for me.
says I make her laugh. I attack everything I do with 100%
of myself yet with the innocence of a younger puppy. You
see, I didn't experience a whole lot when I was a baby-puppy,
so I am just amazed at what the world has to offer. I am
still learning how to control my excitement, so my forever
family shouldn't have kids...I might accidentally knock
them over or play too rough.
I am learning about freedom and how to earn privileges.
I used to only get to run on a chain, so I love running
free in my fenced yard. I need to have a fenced yard since
I am still learning about coming back when called. I love
to learn and am learning how to be a good family member
when in the house. I have not had any accidents in the house
yet (I do all my potties outside)...which I am told is very
good, but I don't understand what mom means when she talks
about "manners." She tells me I have a lot to learn about
manners. But I AM learning. At night I sleep in my crate
and I settle nicely when I am in there. But I do get a little
mouthy if I think someone else is having more fun than I
I have learned that "sit" gets me treats or pats; "down"
gets me treats or pats; touching a hand gets me treats or
pats; coming when called gets treats or pats. I love treats
and pats. I am also learning that if I bring the ball back,
I get to chase it again. I thought that if I gave it up
I wouldn't get to play any more so I didn't want to give
it back...but that is not how it works. As long as I bring
it back and sit, I can keep playing...except my foster people
get tired before I do...so we sometimes play a different
game after a while.
My foster brothers and sisters are really fun! Some are
just like me and some are smaller. I have a lot of fun chasing
them and playing. I have some foster brothers and sisters
that are older, and I even have one that is only 6 months
old. I get along with them all, but I prefer the ones that
like to run and chase with me.
I guess I could live in a place where I was the only dog,
but my person would have to like to play. If I had doggy
brothers and sisters, I would be sooooo happy! I don't know
about cats...I haven't been around them yet.
few months ago, we went on an adventure to watch my foster
sister work with sheepies. Wow! that looked like fun! So
I got a turn. I really liked working with them. I don't
quite understand why, but I pretty much knew what to do.
My new person friend in the pen with us helped me to understand
how to make the sheep go where she wanted them to go, and
it was a fun game getting them to do what she wanted. They
said that I had a lot of potential. I like sheepies!!!
I love playing in the snow. But unfortunately I love it
too much. One day back in December I was playing in the
snow and I slipped and broke my leg. The Dog-ter did surgery
on my leg and he says it is as good as new! I had to stay
still for a while, and I really wanted to get out and play.
But I was a very good boy and did as I was told so now I
am all healed and building up my muscles again. I can run
and jump and now I can find my forever family. Are you that
