With a huge smile that radiates everywhere she goes, adorable ears that are always perked up and sweet eyes, Koda is a sweet, senior dog who would love to find a quiet, loving home to spend her golden years.

At 12 years young, this cute American pit bull terrier mix was surrendered to the Arizona Humane Society when her previous owner could no longer afford to take care of her.

Once the Arizona Humane Society took her in, Koda was put onto a feeding schedule to help her reach a more appropriate weight for her size, as it was also found that she has a mild form of hip dysplasia, a condition that is common in larger breeds and older pups. This condition is better managed when pets stay at a healthy weight. Koda is a great walker and loves stuffed animals and she would greatly benefit from living in a home with a patient family or individual that is consistent with her routine and allows her to have an adjustment period while acclimating to her new humans and surroundings.

All Arizona Humane Society Adoption locations are temporarily closed due to the COVID-19 pandemic, but the organization’s Virtual Adoption Matchmaking Program by appointment is available to place pets, like Koda, with their forever families. To learn more, visit azhumane.org/adopt. Koda’s animal number is 648803.

Please note that this pet might have been adopted by the time of your Virtual Matchmaking Adoption by Appointment, however AHS has dozens more wonderful pets also seeking loving homes. You can take a moment to meet some of the other dogs, cats and other companion animals online. Interested adopters can view available pets on the Humane Society’s “Adopt” pages on its website, and by scheduling an appointment online to meet their next furry friend.
