Meet Koda

Koda is a beautiful 4-5 year old Golden/Husky mix who was found as a stray in West Virginia. She was obviously well taken care but unfortunately, her owners never came forward to reclaim her but that's okay because she's in better hands now!

She did test positive for Lyme, a non-contagious tick-borne disease that is more and more common.. She was given the Lyme vaccine, which will help keep the Lyme dormant. The Lyme will remain with Koda for the remainder of her life. A yearly Lyme vaccine will help keep the disease dormant. Should a flare-up occur, it will be noticed by joint pain/inflammation and lethargy. Typically, a dose of antibiotics will be enough to cause the disease to go dormant again. If Koda should have several flare-ups, in a short amount of time, it could potentially affect her kidney function. Lyme has become more prevalent in the Kentucky/West Virginia area where we pull most of our dogs. Thus far, everyone adopted has gone on to live happy healthy lives.

Koda is the easiest dog this foster has ever fostered in over 15 years of fostering, she is the very definition of a couch potato. If you are sitting on the couch she’ll be there right next to you looking to get pets or a massage and yet does not beg for attention. If you are working at a desk or table she’ll generally come lay by your side. On occasion she’ll go out through the doggie door to lay in the yard when it is cool, so a fenced yard would be best. She’ll need an air conditioned home with her thick fur. She is fine with grooming and no problem with handling her paws.

Sher is good with other dogs but does not play or wrestle with them, just sniffs and goes back to laying on the couch. She is a confident dog but does not like to climb up and down a full set of steps, probably not been in a house with steps. I have gotten her to go up steps but still working on going down steps. Koda is good with children of all ages, is really gentle and would not knock over toddlers.

She is a laid back pup and will not need daily walks, but would really love a daily walk. She walks very nice without pulling. She rides well in the car. She is not food aggressive. She is also a very quiet dog, I don’t believe she has barked in the time she has been in the foster home, although she could have barked along with the fosters’ dog while at the fence visiting a neighbor’s dog. She knows a couple of commands like sit and is food driven so should be easily trained.

Koda is a low maintenance dog and likes to be next to her human. You will need to be happy with her being on the couch with you, as she is a great cuddlier and prefers that activity above all except maybe going for a walk and eating. She does not need a crate.

Koda weighs 54 pounds and about 24 inches at the shoulders, short and stout. The vets estimate she is 4-5 years old. She is robustly house trained, has never had an accident in the house or car even though she is not crated. Koda would be a great companion that will be easy to have around.
