My name is Cody and I’m a calm, cuddly and charming bichon mix of about six or seven (years old that is) who excels at being a companion. In fact the “C’ in my name is short for COMPANION. I’m LOYAL in capital letters, LOVING (in a very sweet and adoring way) and a very mellow fellow!
My foster Mom says I’m masterful at walks and have learned that they are a fun experience. I get to smell lots of things and see pups and people on our walks. (I’m a very approachable kind of guy and so nice that everyone wants to say ‘Hello’ to me. Mom says I walk really nicely on a leash and could walk forever. I also ‘heel’ when she stops. (Mom says that shows my good manners.) Pups and people seem to like me but I’m also pretty independent and confident, yet cuddly and affectionate.
I’m housebroken which Mom says is a very good thing, and am such a good boy! While I could sleep in the Big People’s Bed I prefer to go under it instead. And you know what? Sleeping in and feeling safe is such a great thing that I’m in no hurry to get up!
Mom also wants you to know that I’m a svelte 21 pounds who is blossoming more and more every day (Silly Mom! I’m not a flower, I’m a FurKid!) and that I respond 1000% to human kindness. I appreciate every (good) thing that happens for and to me. I’m quite content to sit quietly on the couch next to you, happy to accept as many belly rubs as you want to give me. And if you want to brush or groom me, well, I’ll just sit next to you for hours doing what Mom calls “a bichon purr.” I just love (and appreciate) the attention. And looking handsome is a nice, too!
My very favorite thing in the world is to be loved and to give it back. Mom says I am a sweet and happy guy who appreciates attention – but doesn’t demand it. (I especially appreciate all the nice things Mom says about me and how kind she is!) I just need somebody to give me lots of love – and I’ll absolutely positively give it right back!
There is no doubt that I’m a special and loyal boy who is longing to make someone very happy. Mom says I’m wonderful, easy going and sweet. (Can you tell she likes me?) And while I’m close to perfect I will need you to help me understand that going for rides in the car is fun! (Right now I do not associate them with fun so I probably never got to go to fun places before I became a FurKid.)
So if you are looking for that special companion to go where you go, enjoy hanging out and looking for a new best friend please ask for me as I’m applying for the job!
Tail wags and more,
Cuddly and Calm Cody
