This is Cody, a handsome, active male collie. He is very loving and affectionate and enjoys playing with soft toys made out of cloth or imitation sheepskin.

Cody has passed a Temperament Test. This is a special test that determines whether a dog has a stable personality. This means that Cody is not shy or aggressive. Cody is also a Canine Good Citizen because he has passed the special test sponsored by the American Kennel Club.

Cody was adopted when he was one year-old. When he was a puppy, he lived with lots of other dogs who went to dog shows. Cody did not have much experience with families, so he had to be housebroken and learn manners. He learned very quickly and became a very trustworthy housepet.
