COSME – Scruffian / 3 Years / 15kg / M-Neutered

Cosme has been getting a lot of apps, but we are still looking for a family that checks off all items on his wishlist. He has energy and is very terrier in his ways!

Cosme’s List:
– someone with terrier experience
– cat free
– dog pal preferred due to his extra energy (he can play for hours, so his dog pal should be a match for that energy)
– prey drive handler: needs to be able to physically keep him secure (he is strong) and work on continued training re “leave it”
– boundaries in the home. If you give an inch, he will take it!
– secure yard to romp in

He is smart and has great manners in the home and on leash. Meeting new canine friends on walks, he will be a bit jumpy and excitable. He has dog pals in his foster home and he does love them – both for playtime and for napping together.

His future home will need to have consistency and boundaries to ensure he stays as his most polite version of himself. (We know he will thrive in his training classes). His home will need to be cat free, and if there are kids, they need to be older as he is mouthy/jumpy at times. He loves to be outsides, so lots of outdoor time is key for his happiness. He gets along well with dogs, but it isn’t a requirement for his new home, provided there is lots of playdates on his agenda.
