Cody was a rescue from a southern animal shelter. He came up to NJ rescued by another rescue, but ran away and spent seven months out on his own, being fed by the neighborhood residents. Cody was finally trapped and brought into our rescue, West Jersey Volunteers for Animals, and went into foster care. He was diagnosed with heartworm and was also fearful of strangers. Cody finished his treatment for heartworm in the summer of 2015, and he is doing so well in his foster home. He has come a long way. He enjoys playing with other dogs, which gives him confidence. Cody is still looking for his forever home. Because he is timid, it has been hard to find him a home. Cody is a wonderful loving dog, and we hope he will get adopted very soon. Meet Cody:
