Cody20 008 2 1CODY (20-008) I am a stately, 9 yr old gentle giant with the temperament of a therapy dog. I call myself a giant because I have a large frame but even so, I could stand to lose about ten pounds to reach my ideal weight of 85. I love everything; people (kids especially), animals (any creature that is not afraid of me), walks, car rides and most especially human snuggle and play time. There is nothing I do not enjoy, except being alone too long. I walk well on my leash and have very good manners both inside and outside my home. I don’t need a fenced yard because I always want to be where you are. While I think I am the perfect Golden, my foster mom says I have one fault; I like to steal food from the counter so my new family must be careful what is left out. I don’t consider that a problem, I only do it sometimes if the food is really good. So, you ask, what is my challenge in life?  It is allergies, some pretty severe ones. I have to be on a special diet, have regular medicated baths and be given an allergy shot once a month. The vet said I will probably have to be on these shots for the rest of my life but fortunately, that is my only health concern. When my foster mom asked me what I would like my forever family to be like, I told her that I really love being around people, and canine or feline friends would be fun too. I really do like children and because I am very gentle and patient, this makes me the perfect companion with children of all ages. When I think about my forever family I dream about a family that wants to love me.  I have lots of love to give them.
