COSMOS HAS A NEW FAMILY COSMOS is a very handsome 11 month old sable GSD. He is chipped, neutered and housebroken. He was a bit of a wild child because when he first came to us back in August; since then he has had a little basic obedience and time to bond. In the time frame of his arrival, Dale and i worked him and we determined he is a great candidate for most any home willing to put the effort into getting him trained and comfortable. His new owner was unable to convey the necessary confidence to him and therefor he was somewhat unresponsive to training efforts, especially with other dogs and around strangers with their dogs. Since then he has really not had the discipline or hands on quality training he needs and remains in need of obedience and socialization training. He isn't suitable for a home with small kids as they are too overwhelming for him. He did fine with my dog, walked perfectly on a prong after a short introduction and was a different dog after 30 minutes of casual work, even with his owner at the end of the leash. Unfortunately the family that adopted him doesn't have the structure to help him and he has been returned for us for rehoming. He is a big boy, easily going to 90 pounds; he is now at about 80 pounds. He is a black sable face and a darker sable in color. He is healthy and well adjusted and would be suitable for any family with STRONG LEADERSHIP. If the NEW ADOPTERS put in the work necessary to get him under control and obedient he will be a fabulous dog..
