If you are interested in adopting an ARPO pet, please visit our website, for details about our fees and process, and to complete our Pre-Qualification Form. ARPO limits adoptions to within 50 miles of Indianapolis. We do not have a shelter; all pets are in volunteer foster homes.
Cossett is a 3 yr old hound mix. She is 45 lbs and is an active dog who loves to run and play. Cossett is VERY playful so she’d love to have a doggy playmate! NO CATS! We are guessing she wasn’t treated well in the past because she can be fearful and timid when first meeting people. However, it doesn’t take her long to bond with someone and she establishes trust fairly quickly. She will need an adult only home with an experienced owner.
Cossett knows basic commands and once she gains your trust she is a Velcro dog. She craves attention and affection and loves nothing more than to be by your side. She’s house broken and crate trained.
