Cody is a very gentle golden, who loves his people. He loves to be petted, loves you to talk to him, will come up to your chair, and rest his head on the arm of the chair, or your leg. He sleeps in a wired crate, goes in when told, and often we find him in there on his own during the day. He still has occasional accidents, and we try to limit his water at one drinking. He is recovering nicely after surgery for a Liver Shunt. He will slowly be weaning off of his medication and prescription diet once his liver shunt is closed.

If interested please fill out our online adoption application form; please make sure you fill in every required field/question or your submission will not go through. Please note that we take time to learn as much as we can about each dog in our care and our bios are our current observations; we are unable to make any guarantees on the future health or temperament of your adopted dog. Most dogs in our care come with unknown pre-rescue history and as such breed and age estimates are an educated guess.
