19/2/2020 – Cody has found a new home!
_ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _
No-one has told handsome Cody that he’s just turned 12 years old as he has lots of energy and enthusiasm for an older boy. He came into the care of Chilterns Dog Rescue Society near Tring, Hertfordshire as an emergency after his owner died and he could no longer stay in a temporary home.
Cody is a merle, short-coated Collie. He is a fairly tall dog and, despite his years, is fit and active, enjoying 2 walks of about 45 minutes every day. He would be well suited to an owner who would be able to take him for at least one good walk every day and offer a secure garden for him to explore. The people who know Cody best describe him as “friendly, inquisitive and fit” and very deserving of a wonderful forever home with someone who knows and loves this intelligent breed.
Cody is used to an ‘adult only’ home but is friendly with unfamiliar people including visiting teenagers, but he has no experience of being around young children who might make him feel a bit anxious.
Cody mostly ignores other dogs when out walking but is friendly and may be able to join a home with a compatible canine companion but not a cat which he would want to chase. After a good walk and a game of ball in the garden, Cody is happy to curl up in his bed in the kitchen, or a comfy sofa, and is content to spend a few hours on his own.
Cody has done only a small amount of travel by car and can be anxious but, with encouragement, can be persuaded to get in, especially if a nice walk awaits him at the end of the trip.
Cody is neutered and appears to be in very good physical condition. He has never had any illnesses or accidents that required veterinary attention and will complete his final vet checks and booster inoculations before leaving the Rescue Centre.
Please note that due to current Covid restrictions, visits are not permitted to the Rescue Centre and potential adopters should be within a 20 mile radius, though there can be a little flexibility if the perfect home is a bit further afield. After carrying out all necessary checks, dogs will be taken to prospective homes for a first ‘meet and greet’ before making a return visit to deliver the dog if both parties agree it is a good match.
