Watch Coda run laps in the yard with other dogs and you'd never believe he was 12-years-old. The short-legged Welsh corgi mix looks AMAZING for his age and although his muzzle is a little gray, he doesn't show any signs of slowing down any time soon.
With age comes wisdom and Coda is what shelter workers call an "instant dog" since he's already leash and housetrained and has mastered every trick in the book.
All he needs is a new place to call home and someone to love through his Golden Years.
Younger more exuberant dogs are adamant about waking up early for a walks and playtime, but Coda enjoys sleeping in on the weekends and lounging around the house. He likes to STROLL at a slow pace for a mile or so in the evenings and then he's happy to head home and accompany his owner on the back porch to watch the sun set.
Disassembling toys is for puppies and Coda would rather snuggle up with his favorite toy when you tuck him into his cozy dog bed at night.
Coda loves the attention of adoring children; he enjoys the companionship of other well-mannered dogs and he will even share his dog bed with the family cat. He is a mellow, affectionate, sweetheart who will be your loyal and faithful friend if you promise to shower him with love.
Coda is available NOW at the Arizona Humane Society's Sunnyslope Adoption Center located at 9226 N 13th Avenue in Phoenix.
