Cosmo  has  been adopted!

Age : 6
Weight: 6.5 lbs
Location: Mississauga
Adoption donation: $600


Cosmo had a rough start to his life living his first 5 years in a cage at a BYB/puppy mill. Due to this he is very fearful of new people, and needs time to trust.

Initially he was not housebroken and marked. Both of these he has learned in the few short months he has been in foster.

He hides when scared or unsure…if he can fit, he will hide under it. Initially he hide through the house, as he became more comfortable in his foster home, and with the regular visitors, he spends time out in the room. He will still walk away or hide if someone looks or talks to him. He is trying his best to be a dog that will engage with others. His new home will need time and patience to make him comfortable to engage with his new family.

He does well with other dogs, and enjoys their company, as long as they are not too in your face.

He walks well on leash, as long as he doesn’t come across other people. If so he stops in fear and makes himself as small as possible by laying down, or trying to find somewhere to hide.

He now loves snuggling with his foster mom, and giving lots of kisses. He is also a big licker, clothes, blankets etc.

When left along he does well for 4-6 hours, but would prefer his chosen human is around more often than not.

Cosmo’s requirements in a home:

  • Adult only (ideally 1-2 people) – due to his fear of people
  • Quiet household
  • Person/family needs to be patient with fears and socialization
  • Home with completely fenced, well secured backyard
  • Prefer his family is not gone for longer periods of time
  • Ideally have another little dog for company and to learn from
