Story
You can fill out an adoption application online on our official website.German Shepherd dogs, as well as the other herding breeds that we have in rescue, are highly active, energetic, working breeds. They require considerable vetting, exercise, socialization, training, leadership and mental stimuli in order to be well-adjusted, well-balanced, and well-mannered dogs. Even if you exercise and play with your dog daily in your fenced yard, you MUST still take your dog out on daily walks and outings in order to work on his/her leash skills, manners, and social skills. These breeds make great additions to active families who will pamper them, but who will also work with them, as they are smart dogs who need leadership, structure, plenty of activity and mental stimulation. If you are new to German Shepherds (and other herding breeds), please research the breed to make sure this is the dog for you. We ask that you consider the time and financial commitment that your German Shepherd (or other herding breed) dog will require before applying for one. Please review the section on our website (www.heartlandgsrescue.org) 'Is a HUGS Dog Right for You?' for additional information.Cosmo is a stunning 6-month old young boy who appears to be a white GSD/Siberian Husky mix. Cosmo is a friendly, adorable goofball. His personality is always happy. He will never say no to a nice walk, run, or playing in the yard. He loves kids and is patient with them, but doesn't always remember how big he is, and can knock them over. He does well on walks and is working on not pulling when he gets excited. He does okay with cats and leaves them alone in his foster home, unless they provoke him. Bones and stuffed animals are his favorite things to play with. He is working on kennel training and has made good progress, but still isn't a fan of it and currently uses a heavy duty crate. Because of that, Cosmo would do best with someone who is home a lot. Cosmo does best when foster mom gets to work from home or can take him to work with her. Cosmo is such a snuggle bug and so loving. Cosmo loves to play with other dogs, and would love a friendly, laid-back doggy sibling who is tolerant of puppy shenanigans. Like any of our dogs, this gorgeous boy would make a great addition to an active home that will provide the love, structure, good leadership, activity and mental stimulation that his breed needs. Because of that, Cosmos' ideal owner will have prior GSD, Husky, or other herding breed experience. Even if you exercise and play with your dog daily in your fenced yard, please remember that you MUST still take your dog out on daily walks and outings, in order to provide sufficient stimulation, ward off boredom, and work on leash skills, and manners. Cosmo's adoption fee is $395, all of which goes back into offseting our high-cost vetting expenses and rescuing more dogs.  We are a 100% volunteer-run rescue group and rely on adoption fees and donations to continue saving lives. Adoption fees include spay/neuter, current on age-appropriate vaccinations, fecal, deworming, flea/tick and heartworm preventative, heartworm tested if old enough (and treated if positive), and microchipped. Please visit http://heartlandgsrescue.rescuegroups.org/info/adoption for more information about our adoption process and requirements, and to apply.   Visit this organization's web site to see any additional information available about this pet.Please review the information in the 'About Us', 'Important Considerations' and 'Adopt' sections on our website menu, as it contains useful information about the breed, adoption fees, the adoption process and our requirements, and how meeting the dogs works.April 12, 2024, 8:08 pm
