***Thank you for your interest in Magnificent Mutts and Meows.    As an all foster based rescue all meets will be by appointment only.  Your whole family must be available to attend the meet as there will be no second meets scheduled . To help streamline the process please make sure your current pets are up to date, you have landlord/HOA approval, and that you are prepared to take the dog home with you immediately before submitting an application.  Thank you & Please stay safe!***      

Kodiak and Willa came to us after his owner passed away and the extended family could not care for them.  We would love to keep them together if possible.  

Kodiak is approx 52 lbs and 5-7 years and a very, very sweet boy who loves to give kisses! This handsome fella is special needs though and will need a committed forever home to manage those needs.  After arriving it became apparent that Kodiak was having trouble walking.  Xrays and a CT has been preformed showing he has arthritis of the spine and possible disc problems.  His forever family will need to be committed to help manage the condition. 

Kodiak may not have had much socialization with other dogs as he is not sure how to interact with other dogs in the foster home just yet.  So, if there is a current dog in the home he/she will require a meet, and it must be a LARGE dog.  NO SMALL DOGS, CATS or SMALL ANIMALS for Kodiak as he has a huge prey drive.  Kodiak is good with kids, and a home with a fenced in yard would be ideal for him. NO apartments/townhomes/condos as he is quite vocal and also will not do well with stairs and his condition.
