What a pretty girl Koda is. She’s a 50 pound Blue Heeler who will turn 11 years old at the end of August. Koda has spent her life with her brother for company and while they get along fine, the belief is they can be rehomed separately. Some may hope they could find an adoptive home together but the reality is, they are not as bonded as one would like to imagine and time is short before they need to find a home. If they are rehomed as a pair, they must be the household’s only dogs as together they tend to “overrun other dogs”. We’ve seen this happen when pairs are placed together in a home where other dogs already live.

We are told that Koda is usually submissive when meeting other dogs. Koda needs a kitty free home as she will chase cats as well as squirrels and birds. She does fine with kind children who are over the age of 5.

At this time Koda can manage stairs and she can go without a potty break for quite some time. Her owner passed away so there is not much known about her past vetting.  This means her adopter will need to be willing and able to have her vetted and keep current with her maintenance care and anything that could happen as Koda ages. All dogs deserve this and every adopter should be prepared to provide lifelong care.

Koda loves to be outside but that doesn’t mean she’s an “outside dog”! She spends her days coming in and out of the house as she desires and we are told she is OK to stay home alone but of course she’s always had the company of another dog when her human was away.

Koda’s caregiver describes her as “the sweetest, kindest dog who is very loyal”. Koda just wants to spend time with her people and be part of a family. She sounds like a great dog, doesn’t she? Koda needs an adoptive home very soon.

Koda is located in Edmonds, WA. For contact information please email: referrals@olddoghaven.org

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