Meet Cody.  He is a three year old Black Mouth Cur mix and is also an Austin Pets Alive! alumni.  He’s a stunner!  He obviously arrived to our studio in full makeup.  Look at his eyeliner!   He is very well-trained and was a lot of fun to photograph.

This is Cody’s first photo from the session.  You could tell that he’s not quite sure what to make of the whole thing.  Just look at his lip!  Too cute!

This photo reminds me of what children do when they are told to say “cheese” for the camera.  You get the frozen smile with the gritted teeth.

Now Cody is getting into it!  Here is his over the shoulder look.  Love that white tipped tail, Cody!

Someone appears to be enjoying himself!

Cody sat, stayed, stood, smiled and went into a down perfectly.  What an amazing dog he is!

Cody wasn’t always so well-trained.  He was an owner-surrender at the Austin Animal Center and stayed there for a few months.  Finally he was adopted but he was returned two days later because of resource guarding issues with his new family’s other dog.  He was marked as unadoptable and scheduled to be euthanized.  Thankfully, Austin Pets Alive! stepped in and found a foster home for him.  He is now living with his forever family and loves to play, especially with his little human brother.

Cody also thoroughly enjoys walks . . . and whipping around his leash.

He also loves lying on his back and batting his toys with his paws.  His family reports that he might be part kitten.  🙂


We’re guessing that Cody either doesn’t like hats or pirates.   To see more images of this cutie, check out his Instagram!  And, if you’ve fallen in love with Cody’s look and are considering a Black Mouth Cur of your own, check this link to see if this is the right kind of dog for you.
