Name: Cody

 

Adopt Me

Personality:

Roses are red, violets are blue, I'm looking for my forever home, could it be you?

My name is Cody - I'm a 3-4 year old, 20 lb. Chihuahua/Italian Greyhound mix. Believe it or not I also have Manchester Terrier, Whippet and German Pinscher running through my puppy veins. Check out my DNA results! My biggest assets are my Elfin ears, charm and affectionate nature. I LOVE walks! My foster mom thinks I could be great at lure coursing – (aka chasing things) because I get a kick out of chasing cats…

I enjoy playing with toys and dabble a little in fetch. I have been known to turn up the charm when food or treats are involved with a party trick I like to call the 2-legged "paw" beg. I’m a lap dog and just want to hang out with my people. I bond deeply and love adventures - take me to work, to run errands, on a walk, run or car ride. I'm being fostered with 10 other pups both small and medium sized; I've realized I prefer a quieter environment.

I've been patiently waiting for my forever home for over 6 months. I was rescued from the Contra Costa Animal Shelter when my owners went to jail and I ended up at the shelter. As a result, I have some separation anxiety issues. I've gotten much better since being placed in my foster home and adjusting to a routine. I need someone who is patient, understanding and willing to work with me. The Power of Chi will provide my adopter with some training sessions to ensure I'm set-up for success in my forever home. However, I will not do well being left alone for long periods of time – so my ideal owner/owners would work from home, take me to work, have a staggered schedules or be retired.

Cody is a 3-4 years old, 20 lb. Chippet - Chihuahua/Whippet mix. We have the DNA test to prove it! This charming and sweet wannabe lap dog was rescued from the Contra Costa Animal Shelter in July 2018.

Cody’s favorite activities include stretching his legs (running and walking), cuddling, counter-surfing and chasing cats. Cody needs an experienced and understanding adopter willing to work with his separation anxiety, which has improved with a routine and crate-training. Cody is a gentle, playful, happy-go-lucky pup - not defined by his separation anxiety!
