Meet Cosmo! He's being returned from an adopter after snapping at a young child when being protective of another person in the house. Cosmo needs a foster and/or adopter without small children in the home. Cosmo is an almost-three year old Dachshund/Terrier mix. He had a rough start in life: one that no living creature should have to endure. He was badly abused and had a torn ACL. His tail was actually detached from his spine and part of it had to be amputated. He occasionally walks with a limp. Cosmo needs to find his Forever Home where he will have TLC. A home where his human is confident and experienced and can make him feel secure, loved and not have to live in fear of being hurt again. Are you Cosmo's rescuer?

Cosmo knows the commands "come", "sit" and "off". He is extremely smart and highly trainable, but he should not be the dominant dog in his home. He is vigilant and will bark to alert you to noises, people and doorbell sounds. Cosmo can be affectionate, but it has to be on his terms. He is motivated by human attention and treats and will even sit for one. He loves to play with other dogs but may be too rough with gentle dogs and would have to be corrected if he is. Cosmo really needs that special human to work with him and teach him that he needs no longer worry about being abused. Will you please give Cosmo that special, loving home?  If you'd like to meet Cosmo, please fill out the online app today!

Adoption fee is $175 and covers microchip, DAPP, Rabies, Heart Worm test and spay/neuter. Adoption fees also allow us to continue saving animals. Please email   for more information, as we can not accept calls at this time.

If you are interested in adopting, please fill out an adoption application here.
