Cosmo

#750 Cosmo, Female, 1 Year Old

Hello friends, my name is Princess Cosmo. My foster mom says the Princess part is a lie but if you met me, you’d know I’m ALL princess.
I am just a year old and a Border Collie x Husky mix and all the sass that could possible come along from both breeds!
I came to my foster mom after my original owners couldn’t handle my energy and she doesn’t doubt that, sometimes she can barely keep up! They used some negative reinforcement tools on me so that didn’t help!
I am a very sweet dog but I am very unsure about myself and what’s going on around me most of the time and I usually get overloaded with stimulation and need a break. I lack some self confidence but I palm it off with my cute face and the little dance I do with my paws up.
I would do well with another confident and friendly dog who is okay with me running into them as a form of play and jumping all over the place. I wouldn’t not do well with a dog who doesn’t like the puppy energy I bring to the table. My foster mom wants everyone to know that just like some humans, I will require daily medication to help my focus and mind because I do become overwhelmed with things very quickly otherwise. This could change down the line but right now, it’s part of the adoption requirement.
I will require someone who can give me 10-20 minutes a day (M-F) of one on one training to continue my focus and ability to grow my confidence. We have some fun games my foster mom could show you!
I am not the dog for everyone and I’m not the dog for just any random dog home. I’m extra special and will need extra love (it’s free to give!!)  My foster mom would prefer someone local to DFW OR someone willing to stay in touch frequently since I’m such a princess. I am crate trained though if you don’t let me out first thing once you’re up? I will sing you the song of my people until you do.
I like most new dog friends but will require a slow introduction. I don’t really care about cats, they live their lives and I live mine, I even live in the same room as a cat! I am housebroken and eat in my crate.
I am a very sweet dog and whoever adopts me will be lucky. I just have a few quirks, but who doesn’t?!
