Did you ever spray Sun-In on your hair back in the day only to have it turn a bleached-out orange instead of the golden highlights in the commercials? Thanks to a life outside, Cozmo’s previously red coat looks like he used too much Sun-In, but after some time indoors and lots of brushing, his natural deep color should grow out. Cozmo came to IDR+ after his owners moved to a new town that frowned upon dogs running loose, which he was previously used to while living on a farm. After being picked up one too many times, his family surrendered him to find a more suitable situation–like keeping him in a house instead of outside? His vet paperwork lists a DOB of 10/25/2010, which puts him at 6.5 years old. Unfortunately, he will be celebrating his 7th birthday with us because he is heartworm positive. He will need a foster home for the next 2 months while he is treated and recovers. Cozmo is eager to expand his vocab. He is pretty good at ‘sit’ and ‘paw,’ but he’s not used to leash walking, so we will require obedience to ensure his success and help him bond and communicate with a new family. We are told he was good with kids and other dogs, but we would like to confirm that. He has no history with cats. If you are in the Chicago area and would like to foster Cozmo through his heartworm treatment, please let us know. He won’t be available for adoption until November, but we can process applications for him now.
