Adopt Cody a White Lhasa Apso / Poodle (Miniature) / Mixed dog in Fountain
Fountain Valley, CA
Meet Cody! Cody was rescued from OC Shelter's euth list. He was very afraid when he arrived. He has since made progress, but needs his people to understand that he wants to meet you at his speed and you can easily earn his trust. His blg round dark eyes tell a tale of his previous 6yrs, and not everyone was nice to this poor little eleven pounder. His foster momma says he is a little doll, often sitting with his paws crossed, and his tail is wagging all day long. In the morning when it's time to get up he will race you down the stairs, often diving over the last 2 steps to win the race. Cody is a follower and an observer and will look for his leader to guide him and set strict boundaries and keep him in line. He is good with other dogs *when properly introduced* , and would do best in a home with older kids. He loves showers and is good with grooming which is good because he is a dog that needs regular grooming. His foster mom is able to do trim ups around his eyes and paws with no problem as well. Cody also enjoys car rides, his bed, and is nice on a leash (doesn't pull) and asks for attention by pushing his head under his foster momma's arm. He knows "sit", "no" and his name. Cody also enjoys going for a walk and is learning that it's ok that other dogs are out walking as well. When he hears his leash or if he sees you pick up the leash he gets very excited to go out and see the world. Cody needs to find a forever home that will commit to loving him forever and taking good care of him, including regular grooming. Humans seemed to have let him down on multiple occassions and it would be nice to look into his eyes and see happiness instead of worry. Humans have failed him on multiple occassions but he's willing to give you a shot if you give him a little space and time (he prefers a week) to check you out and approve of you.
