Poor Kodak has been looking for a home for half a year, but he’s now gone months without a single adoption enquiry.
The one-year-old Cane Corso was taken into the care of the RSPCA’s Mount Noddy Animal Centre, in Chichester, West Sussex, after being rescued by the charity’s inspectors.
Despite having a troubled past, he’s a gem who’s stolen hearts at the rescue centre.
Manager Susan Botherway said: ‘Kodak is such a sweet lad who’s had a difficult start in life. He just needs someone to give him a chance and to show him what a loving home is really like.
‘Sadly, for months, we haven’t had a single person contact us to enquire about him and the only applications we had when he first became available for rehoming were completely unsuitable.
‘We’ve rehomed lots of animals but, day after day, Kodak waits by his kennel door hoping that it’ll be his chance to trot off to his happy ever after, his tail wagging.
‘Sadly, that day still hasn’t come, and our hearts are all breaking for him.’
Kodak is sweet and friendly, but he takes a little time to get to know you.
Once he does, he loves you – he just gets a little anxious at first, which is why he needs experienced owners who can help him build up his confidence.
Susan said: ‘Kodak has come on leaps and bounds since coming to us. He now walks nicely on the lead and is calm when he’s around other dogs, horses and livestock.
‘He’s very clever and knows several commands, such as “sit, “rollover” and “wait”.
‘He’s a youngster, so he still gets a bit over-excited at times and can jump up, so we feel he’d be best in an adult-only home or with a family with older children, as he is a big boy and, really, is still a giant puppy.
‘He can be nervous around new people and will bark at strangers as well as unfamiliar noises, so we think he’d be best in a quiet, rural home.
‘He has sadly shown signs of separation anxiety, so his new owners will need to slowly introduce him to time spent on his own.
‘Kodak is a curious boy who loves to explore and really enjoys using his nose.
‘He’s busy and is always on the go so can, at times, struggle to switch off. We think he’d really benefit from living with another dog.’
Do you think you can give Kodak a forever home he’ll be happy in?
