Codie is a dear old gal who lost her home when her senior owner could no longer care for her. Caring friends of her family took Codie in to keep her until they could find her an adopter. She is a mixed breed girl weighing 20 pounds. Codie has lovely brindle markings and lots of “frosting” on her face. She is guessed to be between 13 and 14 years old.

In her caregiver’s home she lives with another dog and cat. Codie doesn’t seem to care much about other animals. It sounds as though she’d be fine living in her new home with other animals but because she is an old girl, a home with mature animals would be best for her. We are told that Codie has not been observed around children since she was a puppy.

Codie has been OK to stay at home without the humans of the house. She can manage a few hours before requiring a potty break. Codie does bark when the humans return-a happy “welcome back!” only our dogs can give us! Aside from that her caregivers state she is not a barky dog.

Codie can still manage stairs. Her caregivers believe her hearing may be going (expected at her age!) but she still seems to see fine. Codie is enjoying her daily walks in her temporary home. Her caregivers have been working on her leash skills and she’s showing that old dogs can learn new tricks! It’d be wonderful if Codie could continue to get daily walks in her adoptive home and time to sniff and roam in a securely fenced backyard.

Codie prefers females; it can take a while before she warms up to a man in the home. She would do best moving into a quiet home where someone is either retired or works from home.
Fortunately, it sounds as though Codie adapted pretty well moving into the home she’s in now. One would hope in her next-and hopefully final-home she could adapt once more. Once she gets to know and love you, we are told she is a cuddly, loving girl. Codie is in need of a committed lifelong home where she will receive regular vet care and the lap time she so enjoys.

Codie is located in Olympia, WA. For contact information please email: 

This is not an ODH dog; we urge prospective adopters to do their own evaluation.
