Hi, my name is Cosmo (#2839) and I’m ready and eager to find my new family. I am 16 months old and am a confident boy, who curious about everything. I love being with my family and want to be involved in everything they do. I love to give kisses and snuggle. I love other dogs and I even like to play with cats. However, if they run I’m sure the game is on and I will run after them. I love children but I haven’t been around very many of them. I may be too energetic to be around smaller children, so older ones might be a better fit for me.
I came from Shanghai, China, where I lived with the same family since I was a puppy. They decided that they did not have the time for me, so they sent me to America to start a new life, where I could run and play every day
Did I mention that I love to play? I have this awesome tug rope and it’s my favorite toy, but I love my ball and will go get it for you and bring it back for another turn. I also have a great time with other dogs. I have a couple of them to play with in my foster home, and we have a blast! As a puppy, sometimes I play a little rough, but I am happy to tone it down when an older dog tells me to.
I am still learning not to pull when I’m walking on a leash. It’s hard to resist the urge to pull so I can smell things and meet everyone I see, but I am working on it! Meeting new people is so exciting for me and I cannot get enough attention. On a side note, I am content in my kennel and will lay down and sleep. If told to wait, I will wait at an open door until you tell me I can go and I will also wait until you tell me to get out of the car.
Being the fun loving, curious sweetheart I am, I love getting into everything to play with it and shred it. I will get things off the counter, any table, and of course anything on the floor is legally mine. The best part of all of this is that you might chase me and we can have a great game of keep-away.
If I’m being totally candid here, there’s something you should know: sometimes I have temper tantrums when I want to do something and you tell me no. I am getting better about this and am pretty easily redirected with a toy. I do need a family that has rules for me and will keep me in line.
I would do best with an experienced family, who will give me lots of exercise and attention. If you are willing to attend some obedience classes with me, that would be even better!!
