EUGENE, Ore. – Cosmos is a small black and white terrier mix who knows basic obedience commands and is friendly and playful.

Cosmos was calm and quiet on his visit to the KEZI studio Tuesday. He could go to a family with children who are respectful and give him time to get to know them.

At the animal shelter he has gotten along with other dogs when introduced, but he will need a home with no cats.

Cosmos is 2-years-old and weighs 24 pounds. He came to the animal shelter when his owner could no longer care for him.

Cosmos’ adoption fee is $185, which includes the cost of vaccinations, microchip identification, spaying or neutering, a certificate for a free veterinary exam and more.

Every Tuesday, KEZI showcases homeless pets on the Midday newscast at 11 a.m.
