Kody is now reserved
Kody is a crossbreed, his microchip says Staffie but he’s A LOT bigger, he’s 40kg.
Kody was rehomed in January but sadly had to be returned because his behaviour made him difficult to manage.
Kody cannot live in a built up area, he goes from 0 to 10 in the blink of an eye. He finds kids and dogs particularly arousing and becomes incredibly frustrated when he can’t get to them. Given his size and breed he looks quite intimidating and, quite rightly, people are frightened of him. Typically, of a bull breed, he charges head first into every situation.
He is walked on a halti and has been used to wearing a muzzle and harness while walking in public.
He is house-trained and not destructive when left alone.
What kind of home do we need for Kody?
Firstly, Kody needs his own garden. Somewhere private and secure, where he can play freely without fear and alarm from passing dogs and kids. Ideally, this home would be in a more rural setting where he will not have to be walked in public parks and the likes; right now, this is too much for him.
Kody’s new owner will have to have experience of big bouncy dogs and be strong and fit to give him adequate exercise. Knowledge of training dogs, using modern force-free methods would be advantageous.
Kody cannot be rehomed with children, cats or other small furry creatures. He may well be ok living with another dog but it would have to be a dog that is calm, obedient and happy – that could help show him how to ‘dog’ and could cope with 40kg of puppy landing on them. When Kody first meets a new dog he is rather unfriendly and will need multiple, gentle introductions before he feels comfortable.
You will have a home check prior to his living with you so you must be within reasonable distance of our kennels to be considered.
If you’re interested in learning more about Kody please contact us, you will be required to fill in an adoption application form before visiting the kennels.
