Cody Cocker Spaniel Senior Male in Tampa, Florida

My story
Our goal in rescue is always to do right by our dogs. 3 weeks ago Cody came to our rescue, a former foster dog of Heather’s, his owner had gone hospice… his next of kin was afraid of Cody and his naughty behavior…and at 12 years old we thought for sure he would end up staying with us for the rest of his life. However, after spending the last few weeks with us, we now know Cody has his senior years ahead of him and it wouldn’t be in his best interest to not search for someone who can give him the love and attention he deserves. We are officially looking for a foster to adopt home for Cody. Cody is a chubby 12 year old who weighs 35-40lbs

(and could stand to lose a few pounds), he absolutely loves being petted and can be found following you around the house or laying by your feet looking for some attention. He is genuinely a cute, happy, “little” dog. However, here is where things get tricky. Cody would LOVE an owner who simply wants to coexist with him. Though he likes being petted, he does not want you to pick him up (even to help him onto the couch or into the car), he does not want to be hugged, and does not want you to be near his personal stuff, as when he gets upset he does sometimes turn into a snarling demon (but in our opinion is easily managed). He simply wants to be your friend. Cody

would benefit from a quiet home with adults, no children, and as an only dog or maybe one other calm dog in the home. Though he does not need to be crated when you are gone, he would love an area dedicated to his bed/water/food bowls that will not be in a high traffic area of your home. Honestly, our ideal home would be someone lonely who wants nothing more than a friend to talk to and watch tv with. If we didn’t scare you off and you think this quirky boy might be the senior to fill the void in your heart….please let us know. Tampa, FL
If you have any questions or would like to adopt Cody, please reach out to the adoption group directly. PetSmart Charities does not facilitate the adoption process. Thank you.
