- 10 years
Hi there! I'm Cosmo, a very cute and spunky 10 year old little chihuahua mix. I am as sweet as can be, once I know you and I are friends. Until then, I'm a typical chihuahua and I put on my captain tough guy act when first meeting people and animals. I’m wary and protective of my space, and I’ll often show off my big boy bark to make sure you know who is boss. Please be patient - once I get a few good sniffs in, I promise I’ll be crawling into your lap and giving you my big, puppy dog eyes for scratches. I like to romp around the yard, and I’m a good boy on walks. Not to toot my own horn, but I think I’m a great catch, and I would be a wonderful furry family member to any home that understands I need a little space when I’m experiencing something new. I need a grown-ups only home to be most comfortable. I love to snuggle and to keep you company, and I get along really well with other dogs. I seem to be housetrained, but I may mark my territory when I first get into my new home, so please be patient with me! I'm a healthy little guy without any teeth - I had so many rotten teeth when I was first rescued, but I had a big dental that got rid of them all. I feel SOOO much better now, and I'm so happy not to be in pain any more! But, canned food will need to be on the menu for me! I'm a great little dude who is your typically little pseudo-tough guy that then melts into a little love bug as soon as I know we're buddies. I hope you'll come meet me and let me show you just how cute I can be!
