2NURFM'S Pet Rescue - Cody & Leo

Cody & Leo 

Why settle down with one distinguished gentleman when you can settle down with two? Cody and Leo; the Sean Connery and George Clooney of the K9 world are the perfect pair. Dressed to impress in their classic black and white suits they will always look the part whether you're having a quite night in or strolling through the park.

Leo is a Border Collie x Labrador, approx 8-9yrs and Cody is his Border Collie father, approx 11 years old. Being a little more mature, this father and son duo know when you want to snuggle on the lounge or hit the town. These Gents are happy to share the special human in their lives and for this reason will be moving in with you together. Both enjoy a regular stroll through the streets and are working on containing their excitement at being on your arm when they first leave the house, Cody has the smooth moves and stands on hind legs wrapping his paws around your waist in a perfect embrace to show he cares.

Both are great with other dogs and happy to be in a yard as long as they are together. They both panic if separated from each other. Neither are good with cats, they chase all small animals. They have not been around children but both love any kind of attention so it is expected that they would be fine. They really are lovely boys.

Although confident enough not to need to smother you all day they do need your attention and some dedicated time, preferably indoors of an evening. If you are looking for double the fun, and double the love in your life then look no further then this sophisticated pair.
