Kodi German Shepherd Dog Young Male

Location:
Des Moines, IA
Description:

BIG FAN OF: Toys, treats, whipped cream and french fries. He also loves other dogs and being with the people he knows and trusts.NOT A FAN OF: Kids. They are way too much for him right now, so he needs an adults-only home. He also is fearful of fast movements, loud noises and new things. It takes him a long time to get used to strangers, especially men, so going slow will be key. Adopters will meet with a member of our behavior team to discuss Kodi's history before taking him home.SPECIAL FEATURES: Kodi came to the ARL as a semi-feral puppy, and we have seen him make amazing progress over the many months that we have been working with him (see video below!). While it still takes him a long time to trust new people, he's now a total goofball and very affectionate to those he knows and trusts. He likes to romp around with toys, makes friends easily with other playful dogs, and will lie next to his human friends for petting. Kodi is a very smart dog and has tons of potential, but he needs a special someone to continue working with him and understand that he did not have the normal socialization that most pups get, so the world is still a very scary place for him.OTHER REASONS HE'S SPECIAL: Kodi is very intelligent and already knows sit and target. He has responded well to clicker training and other positive reinforcement-based training, and he loves treats for rewards. He does well in a crate and is trained to use potty pads. We are working with him on being OK with a collar and leash, but he still has a ways to go. He is also still fearful of the outdoors at this point and is content to be a total house dog. He has done well with dogs, cats and pigs.DREAM HOME: A calm, predictable home with a very patient family who will give him all the time he needs to settle in. We are requiring that he have a dog friend in his new home, so he can follow their lead and build confidence by watching them navigate daily life. We're going to be completely honest -- it is going to take Kodi not days, but months to become completely comfortable in his new home. If you are willing to give him that time, you will see, just as we have, that he is worth the wait! It will be incredibly rewarding to watch him become more confident and trusting every day.This dog is available for adoption by appointment. To schedule a time to meet this dog, please contact XXXX@arl-iowa.org.The ARL's shelter software requires that we choose a primary breed for our dogs. Visual breed identification in dogs is unreliable, so for most dogs we are only guessing at primary breed. We get to know each dog as an individual and do our best to describe each of our dogs based on personality, not breed label.Main color: Tri ColorWeight: 36Age: one years two months 3wks
