PLEASE ENSURE YOU READ ALL THE INFORMATION PROVIDED TO LEARN ALL ABOUT COSMO, HIS LOCATION AND ADOPTION OPTIONS.
COSMO is neutered, rabies, core vaccines, de-wormed, heart-worm and tick disease tested negative and micro-chipped. He has an estimated date of birth of 21 April 2016 and as of October 2016 weighed approximately 11 pounds.
COSMO originally came from a high kill shelter in Texas where dogs generally have just 3 days to be saved before they are killed due to the thousands of stray dogs that sadly are in desperate need of life of the streets and ultimately a home of their own.
COSMO is a sweet, happy, high energy, love bug. His whole body doesn't stop wiggling when he wags his tail. He is confident and full of affection for anyone he meets. COSMO is great with dogs of all sizes and lives at the rescue with 20+ dogs ranging from 6 pound chi mixes to 95 pound German Shepherds and gets on great with them all. We do not have cats at the rescue so we are unable to say how any of our dogs would react around cats.
COSMO does jump up when he is excited and so this will need to be worked on. He does need a family that has the time and patience to work with him on basic and advanced obedience training. By training him with the family it will form a stronger bond and allow boundaries / expectations to be set and also all can learn each other's body language and personalities more.
COSMO uses the dog door to go out and play and to do his own business. He has not had any accidents inside, but he will most likely need to be taught to let you know he needs to go outside as he used to having access to the dog door.
COSMO although a small dog, is high energy and is very responsive and so an active family that will take him on adventures and road trips so that he can explore the world and all the sights, smells and sounds it has to offer would be the best for him. He is just over 6 months and will probably not get much bigger. The shelter did have him labelled as a Welsh Corgi mix, however, when he arrived at the rescue, he appears to be more of a terrier. We have no way of knowing what breed he is,so it is up to individuals to decide what they think he looks like.
We currently feed SPORTMIX Wholesomes Chicken Meal & Rice Formula, a 4* (a per www.dogfoodadvisor.com) GRAIN FREE food along with pro-bioitics and immune support supplements listed on the available dogs page!
COSMO is available for adoption through Give a Dog a Home, German Shepherd Dog Rescue for an adoption fee of $500. This fee is not negotiable and is used to cover the rescue costs of pulling, vetting, health certificate, transport from Texas to Maine, monthly preventatives, supplements, food and anything else that is needed.
