We named our Jackipoo (Jack Russell Terrier + Miniature Poodle) "Cosmo" because he's a cosmopolitan man.  He's also a

  • Lapdog

  • Loyal companion

  • Loves to cuddle

  • Walks well on a leash

  • He's your shadow

  • Treat motivated

  • Not a picky eater - will gobble up plain kibble quickly

  • Medium energy

  • Fully housetrained.  HIs previous owner reported Cosmo was housetrained a max of up to 6 hours and he's never pottied once in his foster home.

  • Nervous around strangers but warms up quickly if they go slow

  • Frightened by new people reaching towards him too quickly

  • His coat is soft and feels like a poodle's. Because of that and since there's been no evidence of shedding in his foster home we're convinced he's a non-shedding dog.  Come feel his coat for yourself.   Remember non-shedding dogs need regular grooming.

  • Knows how to use a doggie door

  • Spins circles in excitement when he greets you

  • Would be happiest in a home where someone's around

  • Single family home only.  Not suited for apartment, townhome, or condo living

  • Hasn't been with cats under our care but previous owner said he chased them.  Not surprising since he's part Jack Russell Terrier!

  • Not recommended for small children because he doesn't take treats gently

  • Has pearly white, clean teeth

  • Neutered male

  • Up-to-date on vaccinations

  • Microchipped

  • 12.5 lbs

  • 3 years old

  • Adopters must reside in San Diego County

  • All paperwork from shelter provided
