Kodi is a 9 month old male Cross-Breed. Please say hello to Kodi a very special young chap who is looking for a very special home let us tell you his sad story. Kodi was born just over Nine months ago in a Romanian Gypsie camp, the future is not always bright for black puppies in these conditions but luckily someone saw something special in him and handed him into a very kind rescuer, although a healthy weight he was full of mange and not too pretty to look at. Fortunately the Romanian rescuer soon had him looking much better and brought him to the attention of Cloud K9 Rescue. We fell in love with scruffy bundle and knew we could find him a loving home as part of a loving family in the UK. A few weeks later he arrived on our doorstep. After a period of assessment we were delighted when a family offered him a home, home check completed off he went to start his new life.
Several weeks later we were devastated to get a call asking us to come and pick him up. His “owners” told us that he had problems with continued diarrhea, when asked what the vet had said we were stunned to find out that they had not taken him to get the problem looked at, his harness that had gone with him came back as it had gone despite the fact that Kodi had grown considerably whilst we had been away suffice to say it was nowhere close to fitting him and we suspect he may not have been walked during this period. One quick trip to the vets later and a course of antibiotics kodi’s tummy had settled down. We then found a lovely young couple who came to meet him and fell in love with him. Three weeks later he is back with us. They were leaving him for too long at home without any doggy company and he had started to become destructive around the house, they felt that a more rural home would suit him better with either another dog for company or one where the owner is around for most of the day.
So this lovable big clown is back in Foster with Cloud K9 Rescue and we are determined not to let him down a third time. We wanted to put a warts and all assessment of Kodi here knowing that the perfect home is out there and with a little patience love and understanding Kodi is going to make the most perfect family companion.
Kodi is a big dog 30” to the top of his head, Best described as a flat coated retriever / Collie cross with a tail that any dog would be proud to own. He is a little nervous of men on first introduction and barks quite a bit, not with any aggression just anxiousness. Once he is comfortable with you and this doesn’t take long he is wonderful company. Kodi has that collie trait where he can try to nip the back of a passing ankle when out on a walk (so we are told, but have not personally witnessed this) again this is the Collie in him. Anyone with experience of large breed dogs could easily manage this and teach him polite manners.
Kodi is also a very loving dog, loves to cuddle, is quite independent when he wants to be and is a clever soul. Walks nicely on the lead when out and about on his own. Is very good with other dogs and loves to play with his doggie mates. Has a beautiful soft coat and the longest of bushy tails. Has lived happily with children, although due to his size and zest for life younger children may be vulnerable to being knocked over.
We would love to find him a new family that has had some past experience with larger breed dogs and can provide the reassurance Kodi needs when outdoors. So owners who can take a more dominant role, anyone with Collie experience may know what we mean. Owners who have other dogs or who are around for most of the day. Owners who are prepared not to have the perfect dog from day one but are willing to spend a little time and work with Kodi knowing that for a small amount of effort over time they will have the most perfect of loving dogs.
We appreciate this might have put some people off but that is our intention. Kodi is looking for commitment, leadership and dedication. He is an amazing dog and will reward you a thousandfold. He is just a big cuddle monster that has had a bit of a rough start to his short life. We are determined to find that perfect home he so deserves. Kodi is currently in foster near Spalding in Lincolnshire.
