++REQUIRES HOME WITH LARGE BREED DOG EXPERIENCE++

++ REQUIRES HOME WITH FENCED YARD++

NAME: Cody Carson

AGE/GENDER: 4 years old, Male

BREED: Ridgeback Mix

TEMPERAMENT: Active, sweet, playful

WEIGHT: 100 lbs

HOUSE TRAINING: Great!

CRATE TRAINING: Great!

OTHER DOGS: He really likes other dogs

CATS: No experience but based on his interest we feel a home without cats is best.

CHILDREN: Cody is nervous around children so he is not a candidate for a home with children.

ADOPTION DONATION: $425.00

HEALTH: Cody is neutered, microchipped, flea treated, dewormed, and is current on vaccines. Your adoption donation goes toward the cost of this vet care as well as other incidental costs of care.

HISTORY: Motley Zoo Animal Rescue was asked to find Cody a great forever family and that is exactly what we plan to do!

NOTES FROM CODY'S FOSTER HOME: Cody is a sweet, affectionate and well-trained boy who loves his people and playing ball. He is really an amazing dog- however, he is extremely fearful of new people and places. He tends to take cues from other dogs and we feel a companion dog in the home will help him, and he also needs a patient family so he can gain some confidence.

Cody is obedience trained, housebroken and fantastic in a crate, and will appropriately bark at strangers/ noises. When people come over however, he needs time to warm up- but throwing the ball expedites that process significantly!

This big boy looks so happy and comfortable when playing and this is one of the best ways to relax and exercise him.

Because of his lack of confidence and nervousness around strangers, he will need to be in an adult-only home that has prior strong breed experience and will need further training on his confidence (we have a class for that!).
Cody is not for a first-time dog owner.

We also feel he will not fare well in an apartment/condo/townhome setting and requires a fenced yard so he can play and run where he feels safe. We hope his new family will challenge his fears and help work him through them in time.

Foster Update: Cody is easy and sweet with those he knows, but he is VERY fearful and guarded with strangers, especially men. He has fully bonded with and trusts my husband and me- but he will require some careful oversight when visitors come and interact with him.

All dogs adopted from Motley Zoo come with a leash and Martingale collar (or a harness, if necessary), depending on each dog's particular needs.

ABOUT MOTLEY ZOO:

Motley Zoo Animal Rescue is a volunteer run, foster based, 501(c)(3) non-profit animal rescue organization based in Redmond, WA. Motley Zoo does not have a traditional shelter location, but instead, utilizes private foster homes which care for the animals individually, in a home environment, until a "furever" home is found.

Motley Zoo also runs "Rock Star Treatment" Dog Daycare & Services Studio in Redmond, WA which is a day-use facility and does not hold kennels of adoptable animals. The dogs there are owned animals who come to the facility while their families are at work and school so they can play and socialize in a safe environment. We dub this service our "Year-round" fundraising program which helps us support our rescue animals and the $15,000/ month vet bills we incur.

Please email adopt@motleyzoo.org and request an adoption application so we can get you started on the journey to finding a new, furry friend! Once you have been approved to adopt, then we can set up a meeting with the animal you have been matched with.

For more information, please visit www.motleyzoo.org.

Thank you for considering adopting a dog in need!

Woof,

The Motley Zoo Crew
