Cody is an incredibly sweet and sensitive dog. He loves everyone, and one of his favorite things to do is to see people while he is out on his walks. Born in 2014, Cody does suffer from anxiety. In certain situations, he needs help and guidance to make the right decisions and to act appropriately. He can be jumpy and mouthy when his anxiety isn't well managed, but he is currently taking medication to help him feel calmer. While Cody does have some dog skills, he has his own room at the Sanctuary and would do best as the only dog in the home. If you've got the time and patience to coach a sweet and sensitive guy, Cody would love to meet you.

Cody is part of our Single Pets* program! That means that he is eligible for a free flight home and waived adoption fee!

*Single pets do best as the only dog or cat in the home.
