This sweet boy was discovered on a hunting camp in the backwoods of north Louisiana. He was beyond starving, and barely had the energy to walk up to people to ask for food. He tried as best he could to blend in with the hunters’ dogs and their families and would eagerly take handouts if some were thrown his way. He hid under trucks to escape the heat and would only come out when children bent down to call him. Calling a local shelter or rescue in this area was not an option, as there were not any in this town or any nearby. So he was taken by the Cobb family, back to Texas, in hopes of Cody’s Friends’ Rescue, being able to find him his fur-ever home. After a trip to the vet, we learned champ was about 3 years old, he was un-neutered, and had heart worms. He should way no more than 45 lbs when he gains his weight back. The vet felt that although he was somewhat timid and hesitant, he clearly was somebody’s pet early on, because he seemed to really like people and was willing to give them a chance. After spending some time with him, it was obvious that he had never been inside a home before, and that this was a new experience for him. He is currently living with 3 labs and has learned to use a doggie door. There have been no accidents in the house since then. He seems to get along well with other dogs, but he has been fed separately in case of food aggression. He did growl once when a small child attempted to take his bone away. However, there was no snapping or biting. He is a sweet, calm, good natured boy, that seems to be adapting to domestic life, just fine. After months, maybe years of an uncertain future, he deserves a family that can give him the safety of a loving home that he longs for and so deserves. show less

Poor Charles had a rough start in life. This little cutie was not treated very well. His previous owner was an elderly lady in Fort Worth who he was given to him as an "unwanted gift "some years ago. Instead of finding somewhere for him to go, she banished him to the back yard where he has lived since puppyhood. The lady's son, who was also her caretaker, was abusive to him. He had never been to a vet, he was covered in fleas and he is a little skittish, but so willing to love. He's such a little snuggle bug. He is a cute and we think he is a Jack Russell Mix (12lbs). T. Now he is with a foster Mom who is changing his future.  He has come a long way, When she first got him, he was so shut down and scared. Just talking to him was enough to make him crouch down and curl up in a ball. I got him a heated blanket and he slept on it in our bedroom for about 4 days, only eating enough to keep a baby bird alive. Everything scared him- our other dogs, doors opening and closing, us making sounds or talking to him, everything our 5-year-old kid did, etc. We got him a little kennel with a bed and put a blanket over it and he seems to feel very safe in there and will go in it without any fuss.The other two dogs are slow and don't care about him, so he doesn't mind them and actually tries to get our super old dog (who has never played a day in his life) to play with him.  For a long time, he wouldn't go outside without someone with him. He WOULD NOT go through the threshold by himself. I had to carry him out. He still takes a tiny bit of coaxing to come in, but if I shut the door and open it again he realizes I'm not playing and scurries in.  He steals every last blanket and dog bed in the house, then piles them up, and I'm sure you know the rest of this story.... He is learning what is okay to chew on and what isn't. He will make eye contact with you as he's dragging a sock out of the laundry basket, or a remote off the bed. He loves squeaky toys..  He sleeps with us at night and will let us know when he needs to go potty.  Any time you sit or lay down, he is right there underneath you, and always down to snuggle..  Overall, he's SO sweet and eager to love and be loved, but he's still very unsure about what's going on, or what his role is. He would probably do best as the youngest dog, or with a strong owner, and probably better-suited for a home without very young kids. show less

This sweet Rottie mix is looking for her forever home. Her journey began about six or seven years ago when she was born in a scrap yard in South Dallas. Her mom wandered off leaving her behind and her siblings were caught and adopted. Girl (as she is called in the yard) was very fearful of people and would not allow anyone near her so she was not caught and was not given an opportunity to grow up domesticated. She has been fed and sheltered at the scrap yard her entire life - never touched or petted by a human hand until two weeks ago – never leaving the yard or wandering the streets of South Dallas. And as amazing as it is, she has never had puppies. She was labeled as feral by all around her. Dallas Animal Services came onto the property two weeks ago and impounded her as a stray even they were told she was not a stray – she was a yard dog. This was very traumatic for her. A few good things did happen though – she is now spayed, has her shots, and is microchipped. She weighs about 45 lbs. She tested low positive for heartworms and is now on Heartgard. She is back at the scrap yard hanging out in the office while her advocates are trying to find her a forever home outside of the scrap yard. Her days of free roaming the scrap yard are over for fear she will be picked up again by DAS. She surprises all every day with her progress. She is not a feral dog, she is a sweet girl that is learning that humans are ok. Since being in the office she lets everyone pet her, shows no aggression, loves her crate, eats out of your hand, gives finger kisses, and chills very well. She met a dog earlier in the week nose to nose and did fine. We are looking for someone that wants to take this sweet girl and give her a chance at a normal life outside of the scrap yard. She will need lots of love and patience and a fenced area while she learns to settle into her new surroundings. show less

Chloe is by far the softest and most loving Chihuahua you will ever meet! She comes with a full known medical history, as she was an owner surrender. After having her as a puppy until now at 4 1/2 years, her family decided they no longer had time for her and took her to a local shelter. Chloe is completely housebroken and has zero destructive tendencies. She is very playful! She loves trying to catch your fingers under a top sheet or playing fetch (you heard right!). She loves squeaky toys and loves being with her human! She wants to be wherever you are. She is very smart and obedient. She loves car rides and walks. She isn’t afraid of water and has been known to jump in the shower with her foster mom. She is a great guard dog. True to her Chi nature, she will bark if she feels threatened or hears something she thinks is off in your home. She does well with some dogs, but shows jealousy when other dogs approach her human. For that reason, she will do best as an only dog. Her perfect home is with a someone who is home more than not and can give her the love and attention she wants, needs and deserves! She is the perfect go everywhere with you dog and would love a doggy stroller for outings! She weighs 8 lbs, is spayed, microchipped, completely up to date on all her vaccinations, and is heartworm negative. show less

Daisy is an 8 months (approx.) old 55 lb. Rhodesian Ridgeback / Boxer mix. She was  purchased online as a very small pup and kept outside where she spent most of her days alone  and had zero interaction with other animals. After her owners were displaced, she was bound  for the local animal shelter before she was taken in by her foster family. She is now an indoor  dog steadily learning the boundaries of indoor living with two fur foster sisters. She is still  acclimating to her new environment and can become quite anxious, and although this causes  her to nip at times, she’s never hurt anyone. It is taking time for Daisy to learn to be around  other dogs, but she is growing in this area every day and enjoys play time with her sisters. She  absolutely loves being outside chasing and catching tennis balls, and chewing on her favorite  toys while lying out in the sun. Daisy does very well in her crate, and is easily coaxed into it with  a treat. She also sleeps in it peacefully through the night. Once she’s in the crate, just throw a  blanket over it and she knows it’s time for bed! She is so eager to please her humans and has  already learned to sit, stay and shake hands! She would do best with an active family as a single dog or with other dogs her size or  larger as she can be very rambunctious. If shown kindness, patience, and love, no one will be  more loyal to you than Daisy! Please consider opening up your home and heart to her. show less

DeafEllie is a wonderful, beautiful and very smart dog.  She gets along with other dogs very well, but can be a handful around smaller dogs.  She does not know here own size, but dogs her size are just fine.  She does not have a bad bone in her body.  She loves chewing on her kong, earning her treats.  She is leash trained and knows several hand signals.  We are still working with her on checking in regularly.  She has not been around kids, but cannot imagine that will be an issue with her temperament.  Ellie is deaf and has received professional training from On the Ball K9 Training in Denton, TX.  She will stay on your side but can get distracted.  She will sit and stay when told and is pretty content on her "place" as long as she has some entertainment.  She is crate trained and sleeps in a crate.  Her favorite activity is going on long walks, but even more, she will play fetch with you until she absolutely wears herself out.  And then, once you think she has had enough, she is ready for some more.  She loves fetching tennis balls and ropes throws...and will bring them back to you almost all of the time, unless she gets distracted.  She will then sit when you tell her and release the toy for another round.  Ellie was born mid-2015 and weighs approx 90 pounds. show less

J.R and Frenchie were rescued form the Fort Worth Shelter  J.R is a Pekinese and Frenchie is a French Yorkshire Terrier  These fur-brother’s owners passed away and they were unwanted by family members, this causing for them to live outside for a couple of years. It has taken work to have them trust humans again and have adapted well to home full of humans and other fur babies. After years of severe neglect they are now on their way to being healthy and are loved very much. J.R is blind but VERY smart. The foster that he is currently with has worked with him on trusting and doggy door training. J.R knows his way around his foster mom’s home and sleeps in her room. J.R loves to sleep in the room during the day as well for peace and quiet and does not mark, he does wear a ban just in case he is tempted. J.R is very loving and loves to sit on the couch with his foster mom. J.R loves to play with his fur-brother and often reaches out to him and initiates the wrestling. The bond that these two have is amazing and should not be taken from them. Frenchie is the happiest furbaby his foster mom has ever met. He loves to play, not only with his fur-brother but all the other fubabies in the home. Frenchie, as his brother was very scared when they arrived to their foster mom’s home. Frenchie would not take snacks and would only want to be outside, like his brother did. Because these two were outside for so long they did not know what it was to be an indoor furbaby. It took weeks of working with Frenchie and J.R and now they have realized that they will never live outside again. One thing that is amazing about Frenchie is that he guides his fur-brother when they are outside and if J.R barks or is whining, Frenchie will come running to see if his fur-brother is ok.  J.R and Frenchie need to stay together because of the life that they have lived and the bond that they have., J.R needs his brother and it would not be fair to the both of them if they are separated. They are both loveable and are fun to watch when they play together AND LIVE HAPPILY FOR THE FIRST TIME IN THEIR LIFE show less

Meet Hope!   This girl has had a rough life but is ready for a forever home all her own!  She was found abandoned, emaciated and desperately in need of care earlier this year along with two other pit bulls.  Luckily, the other dogs were microchipped and were able to find their way home to their owners.  Cody’s Friends Rescue stepped into give Hope the recovery time and medical care she needed.  After several months of recuperation from some nasty wounds and a skin infection and lots of good food, Hope is happy and healthy and looking for the special family she can call all her own!   Hope, who we believe was used as a breeding dog, is approximately, 4-5 years old, crate trained and is impeccable with her house manners, never once having an accident in her foster house.  She is a giant cuddle-bug!  She is happiest snuggling with her special people, romping in the backyard or playing fetch with a tennis ball.   Hope is great with kids and happy to snuggle with them too.   She is gentle with her human interactions despite her size and only barks infrequently.  We can’t say enough good things about Hope (and we love the fact that one ear stands straight while the other flops!)    Because of her prior situation without food, she can be protective of her food as to other dogs and separate feeding is recommended including for a period of time after meal time is over.  She has not shown any possessiveness in connection with food and humans, only other dogs. She does best with dogs her own size or bigger and no cats please. show less

Olive was saved from euthanasia at a local, overcrowded shelter, being deemed "too fearful" to be adopted. In just 1 short week after being given time to decompress and come out of her fearful shell, she made huge progress and is a different dog - she's SUCH a little lover. All she wants is to be right next to you, preferably curled up in your lap all the time! She's still fearful of new people at first, but after a low key introduction, a yummy treat and the willingness to be patient and let her come to you at first, all is good. She absolutely LOVES and ADORES her foster family members (children included) and does an excited dance, with lots of kisses when you come in the door!  Olive is about 4-5 years old, 9 lbs, housebroken, crate trained, and has the cutest little underbite smile! As she has come of her shell, she is starting to be playful - playing with toys, running around with short bursts of energy. The ideal home for Olive is one that is willing to be patient and give her a little time to adjust (it doesn't take long), and then shower her with lots of love, routine and lap time. I think she would be particularly great for an older person who wants a lap dog, and I think she would enjoy living with dogs her size. Cats are unknown, but I think she would be fine with them. Any questions? Feel free to email Olive's foster mom at deliamclinden@live.com and applications are at codysfriendsrescue.com! show less

Patton means “from the warrior land,” and it fits him. He was found on the street and has scars all over his body where he was attacked and bitten, and despite that, his heart hasn’t changed. He is the most loving and affectionate dog I have ever known. We think he was a bait dog and would not fight back. The number one thing to know about Patton is he loves human contact. He loves to sit in your lap, lie on the furniture with you, rest his head on your shoulder, sleep in bed with you, and even curl up in a sleeping bag with you. He lies at my feet when I put on my makeup, and he will sit outside my shower door while I bathe. He even fussed to get into my garden tub with me. He has been around people of various ages and has not been aggressive toward anyone. If I am in in the kitchen or we are at the table, he wants to be right with us, so I have put a pillow on the floor and have been teaching him to stay on it so he isn’t under foot and doesn’t sit by the table when we eat. He is great with his crate. I usually give him a milk bone or chew depending on how long he will be in it, and he goes in without a problem. If he has to get up at night to go potty, he goes right back in with no problem. Speaking of house training, he will go outside if he has access, and he will go to the door and scratch if we are in the room, but he hasn’t learned to notify us otherwise. I plan to start working with him on bells this week. At night, I take up his food and water about 3 hours before bedtime, take him out before I got to bed, and then put him in his crate. For the last few nights, he has slept through the night, but if he needs to go out, he’ll whine to wake me up.  He loves walking on his leash, but if he sees dogs or people, he pulls hard. I’ve started working with him on his self-control, and he responds to treats, face snuggles, and “good boy” really well. He loves to play tug of war with my Pit/Lab with the rope. They wrestle and make a lot of noise, but he isn’t aggressive. He is a puppy, though, and she has had to teach him some manners. My two dogs and Patton eat in the same area from three different bowls. He will eat out of a bowl with one of the other dogs, not in possessiveness but for company. I’ve only seen him with females, and I would be nervous with other dogs that are actually aggressive or act aggressively alpha. He loves playing with Semper (2-year old pit/lab mix), but he would also be great as an only dog because he loves the attention. Again, he is learning manners and how not to interrupt when I am petting the other dogs. He knows the command to sit with the open palm and downward motion. He doesn’t respond well to just the word, but we are working on that as well as staying instead of popping back up. He is smart and quick to learn. He loves pleasing you. He is ready to go wherever you go. He paces in the backseat, but he loves riding. I am working with him on how to get into and out of my truck using the floorboard to the seat and then the floorboard to the ground. We haven’t practiced this a lot partly because we haven’t had reason and partly because I don’t want to do too much on his young joints. If your tennis ball suddenly launches from your hand, he’ll go get it and hold it in his mouth for safe keeping, and he loves the rope with knots, but he won’t wrestle a human for it. I have taken things out of his mouth before with no response from him. He is totally submissive. One day he was eating a plant that can hurt him, and I yelled and ran toward him. He responded by curling up in a puppy fetal position on the floor. Usually, though, any frustrated or upset tone draws him right to me for a nuzzle on my hand or he will crawl into my lap and put his face on my chest or neck. All in all this is a gorgeous, sweet boy who longs for attention and affection. He likes to play with other dogs that are not over the top.  show less

Meet Poppy (The stunning white shepherd) Foster home needed ? The horror that Poppy endured in March 2017 is unimaginable. She was found lying in a truck yard dirty, emaciated, severely injured, and defeated. It was quickly evident that she had been struck by a car and dragged herself to safety. The worst part is that Poppy had been suffering for over a week without any medical help. She was taken to the vet, but unfortunately her back leg had endured too much damage and was amputated. The good news though is that’s the only long term damage that Poppy possesses today. That horrific experience quickly faded in Poppy’s mind. She now lives every day with so much joy and delight that you can feel it when you meet her. Her happy go lucky personality and the pure bliss that overcomes her when she interacts with people exemplifies the well-known quote, “Who Rescued Who?” Poppy would thrive in a home surrounded by humans both older and younger. She loves playing tug with squeaky toys, chase around the backyard, or simply following her human around the house. If you are looking for a devoted companion and constant shadow, Poppy is your girl! She is house trained, LOVES her crate, and can easily use a doggy-door. She enjoys walks (even on her three legs) and car rides. She is around 3-4 years old, 65 pounds, fully vetted, and has a breathtaking white coat. Poppy would do best in a home without other canine and feline friends. Although with proper introductions, she can live with a larger male dog. Meet and greets are the best way to determine if Poppy fits in with your pack. Please consider giving this extremely deserving girl a chance at a forever home. You can apply to meet her at www.codysfriendsrescue.com/adopt   show less
