Here’s what his foster family says about him:
“Coda has spent the last 2-3 years chained up in a garage, a very kind English man became aware of his situation and has helped him by taking him for a walk when he had time and eventually convinced his owner to let Coda be rehomed through Phoenix.
Coda came to live with us 2 weeks ago and has taken to his new life and freedom with enthusiasm.
He is a dog with a lovely temperament, he is intelligent and wants to please but because of his previous life he sometimes needs reassurance and a little time to learn what he needs to do.
Generally he is well behaved and is learning lots of new things, after having no freedom. He is gradually learning to come when called but sometimes, outside in the garden, there are too many distractions and it takes a little time.
He still has times when something spooks him but usually soon gets over it. Considering his past history he has no problems but needs a bit of patience sometimes.
Coda is friendly to other dogs, children and people and has never shown any aggression but we do not know whether he has met a cat as we have none around here.
He is clean indoors and never destructive, he loves affection and sits patiently for his food. He travels well in a car. Nights are no problem, he sleeps happily in a crate and is happy to go in a crate for an hour or two if necessary during the day.
During the day he is a lively boy who loves being in the garden and going for a walk – a fenced garden is a necessity so he can enjoy his freedom.
Very willing, he has learnt a lot in the last two weeks and will continue to do so happily. A lovely dog just as he is, he will make a loyal companion to anyone who gives him a home.
Coda is chipped, castrated, has had a first vaccination and been wormed and treated for fleas and ticks.”
