Biography

Koda is a very lovable 15-month-old, handsome tri color male. He’s predominantly black with a white tuxedo and tan paws. He is very intelligent, curious and is empathetic. He also has an abundance of energy. Since being adopted from Tacoma Humane 4 months ago, he has been fully house and crate trained, and has had extra training to improve his leash handling and help curb his excitement when he meets new people. He has made great progress, but Koda is at a disadvantage with his current owners as they do not have a consistent schedule and especially since they don’t have adequate outdoor space for him to run and release his energy. We believe he would be more suited to a rural environment or a property with acreage. Koda does well with teenagers but does not appear to do well with younger children. We have a five-year-old who needs to come to our home frequently and Koda is not good with that situation. We haven’t experienced Koda being aggressive towards children, but he barks intently- so we have not tested the situation. We have introduced him to older children without any issues. We feel that Koda would thrive with an owner(s) with a consistent schedule and environment. He loves to be around people, very playful, lovable, and that the end of the day loves nothing better than to snuggle with you on the couch. Koda is healthy, neutered and up to date on his vaccinations. As Koda’s humans this is a difficult decision for us as we love him very much, but we feel that he will thrive in a more suitable environment.
