Pet of the Week: Cobra

We’d like to introduce you to our Pet of the Week – meet Cobra!

This ten-month-old Labrador Retriever/Anatolian Shepherd mix has been at the Pet Adoption Center for about a month. At nearly 75 pounds. Cobra is considered a large breed dog.

Cobra is very treat motivated and LOVES to play! Due to his high energy level and large size, he will need people who are physically strong and able to work with him to become the best dog he can be. Cobra still has a lot of puppy in him, so he is one of our “Rambunctious Red” personality pets. Cobra does tend to stay calm when the people around him are calm, and he does best when he has lots of exercise and something to keep his active mind busy.

Caregivers have noticed that Cobra’s play style can be overwhelming for other dogs. When meeting dogs in a new home, he would do best with a very slow introduction. Because of his size and energy level, Cobra would do best in a home with older children. Since he’s not yet a year old, Cobra will need a home where someone is available for him in these early days. It is important to be consistent and socialize him so he can have the best companionship with people and other animals. Cobra is not yet potty trained or crate trained – teaching him those skills will help tremendously on the road to success!

If you and your family are ready to fall in love with this awesome boy, he’s ready for you! Cobra is neutered, current on vaccinations, and microchipped. His adoption comes with many benefits, including 30 days of opt-in pet insurance through Trupanion. Since Cobra is our Pet of the Week, his adoption fee has been reduced, though a pet license fee may still apply. Visit to learn about all the benefits that come with a pet license.

Cobra has many friends also waiting for their forever homes, and during the month of March you can adopt an adult dog for just $50! See the profiles at or meet them in person at the Pet Adoption Center, 21615 64th Ave. S. in Kent. Adoption hours are noon to 5 p.m. weekdays, and noon to 4 p.m. weekends.
