Dog for Adoption

I need my blog friends help, or anyone you may happen to know. My little sister has been fostering a dog for the last 6 months. She got him from the Leo Rescue and he needs a new home. Here is what she wrote about him and a picture. If you or anyone you know is interested please let me know.

We started fostering Koda a little over 6 months ago for Leonberger Rescue. Anyone interested will have to fill out an application with Leo Rescue.

Koda will be 4 yrs old in December. He is very tall, but also very skinny. We can't seem to put much weight on him; he currently weighs in around 100 pounds.

Koda is probably one of the sweetest must loving dogs you will ever come in contact with. He is a big cuddle bug, he is always trying to get in everyone’s lap. He is great on a leash and loves most other dogs. He currently goes to day care everyday and gets along with dogs of all sizes. In fact the staff often tells us that all the small dogs love Koda and tend to lay on his fur and tail.

Due to Koda's past he does have a few things that need work. He has some separation anxiety tendencies. He doesn't do well with crates, so crating is more than likely not an option without extensive training. Due to the anxiety he does sometimes have accidents in the house when left alone. He also was a little destructive at first and took the liberty of chomping a few door knobs. The good news is that all of these things have improved over the past 6 months. He hardly ever has accidents anymore and hasn't been destructive at all.
Koda was also not exposed to children; therefore he would do better in a home without small children. He does great with my 4 yr old nieces, but has shown fear to other children of similar age. He does great with all adults, including strangers and men. 
If anyone interested has any questions please feel free to ask.

Thanks for the help. Another blog post to come soon.
