Find your perfect pet with Pet Alert!

No Small Kids
Name: Kody
ID: 42888610
Breed: German Shepherd / Mix
Gender: Neutered Male
Age: 4 years 9 months
Size: Large
Location: Foster
ABOUT ME: I came to SPCA of Texas as part of a cruelty case in October 2019. I was timid and in very bad shape medically, with severe untreated dermatitis and practically no hair! I've come such a long way since then, and I'm looking for a home I can call mine forever.

PERSONALITY: While I can start out shy, once I am comfortable I am a rambunctious, fun loving dog! I love hard and play hard so I will need an adopter who can keep up.

SPECIAL SKILLS: My foster mom said I'm super smart. I know sit, down, leave it, and get it! (my personal fave). I also learned how to use the bells on the door to go outside in just one day! I sometimes use my intelligence for mischief and learned to turn over my slow feeder bowl to get my food faster, hehe.

DREAM HOME: I'll require a house with a large, private backyard with secured fencing. I'd do best with an active family who is looking for a dog to exercise and play with. I'm kind of a daddy's boy and tend to bond more with men, so hopefully there will be at least 1 male in the home I can look up to. No offense ladies!

MY IDEAL FAMILY: I can get a bit rowdy sometimes so I'm looking for some humans who have experience with large, energetic goofballs like me. They'll need to help me with my manners and how to play appropriately. Due to this, I'll require an adult-only household.

DOGS: Bring any potential doggy siblings to meet me! They should be similar in size to me so we can play.

SPECIAL NOTE: Potential adopters get to take me on a trial adoption to ensure we're a pawfect match!

APPOINTMENT NOTICE: I am in a foster home so please complete an online application if you'd like to meet me!
