HENRIETTA (KFDX/KJTL) — Boy Puppy/Kodiak is looking for a home to adopt him from the Clay County Animal Shelter and Adoption Center.

Carney Porter: If you don’t notice right here, we have a cutie just hanging out. He’s kind of taking a nap right now. He’s from the Clay County Animal Shelter and Adoption Center. Thank y’all so much for being here today. So tell us a little bit: his name is Boy, or we’re trying the new name Kodiak.

CCAS Representative: Boy, Puppy or Kodiak. We nicknamed him Kodiak. But he’s a good boy. He gets on great with other dogs. We think he’s a Weimaraner or Catahoula mix; he might have some lab in him. We’re not exactly sure what all he’s mixed with, but he’s a good boy.

Carney Porter: Where are you going? Are you going to come see me? Are you going to come see me? Oh, sweet boy. Now he’s a little bit shy and maybe a little fearful when you first meet him. He just has to get to know ya.

CCAS Representative: Yeah, he’s just a little timid at first. But he wants to get to know you. He’s a good boy.

Carney Porter: So once he gets comfortable with you, what is he like when he lets loose, per se?

CCAS Representative: He’s playful. He had to be watched some because he at his foster home, he did eat a comforter, so you have to watch what you give him. But he was great with just chewing bones and stuff. If you gave him a raw hide. And he’s he’s very playful, he’s trying to play with the dogs all the time. He loves to play.

Carney Porter: Gotcha. So maybe with a household of like, kiddos, we might want to test the waters out first. Or do we think he’ll adjust to that quickly?

CCAS Representative: We took him into PetsMart over the weekend, and he did great with kids. He loved them.

Carney Porter: Oh, can we see your face? Look at the face. Look at how cute he is. And how long have you had him?

CCAS Representative: He was in the foster home since October. And we just got him in last month. So we only had him in the shelter about a month.

Carney Porter: Oh, goodness. And he, like you said, you found him when he was a puppy, kind of out in some fields and whatnot.

CCAS Representative: Out by like Lake Arrowhead with his momma. The fosters kept his momma, but they just weren’t able to keep him, too.

Carney Porter: Gotcha. Hey, come here, baby. Well, if they are interested in adopting him, how can anybody go about doing so?
