Koda

Koda is a black and white mixed breed who is 14 years old. He came to us from a previous home and is now looking for his new loving home! Koda is a very mild mannered and easy going dog who loves everybody. He enjoys car rides, kids, strangers, and other dogs. He is an overall very happy dog who is photogenic and just wants to receive attention in the form of cuddle and pets.

He will be neutered, microchipped, and vaccinated by the time of adoption.
