12 Year Old German Shepherd Mix!

Cosmo is a sweet, affectionate and cuddly mature guy who is very eager to please.

Cosmo loves to swim, play with ropes and tennis balls, and is wonderful on a leash. Now in foster care, he goes on walks twice a day and when not on a leash, is a terrific fetcher of tennis balls, bringing them back to be thrown again. He's a good car traveler too!

He is well behaved around respectful kids. He's pretty good around cats too; he's interested but doesn't try to chase them. He's house trained and knows to use the doggy door to go outside when his people are at work.

He gets along well with other dogs but tends to get competitive for food if other dogs are nearby at feeding time; this is something his foster parents are working on.

Cosmo is a laid back, low maintenance and genial boy. He's in good health, but has a few fatty deposits around his shoulders and a little arthritis, so will do well in a calm and quiet home where he can alternate playfulness with lounging about and snuggling with his people.

This is a sweet natured dog who has abundant love to give to any family and just needs love in return. Come visit and see if he's perfect for your home.

And remember, all APA adoptions come with free behavior assistance through APA's behavior team!
