Cowboy is a handsome 9-year-old dog who sports a beautiful long black coat. He was previously living at an Eastern Washington sanctuary, but found himself needing a new home after a building there was destroyed by fire. Now he’s excited to be at Homeward Pet, warm and safe, with a renewed hope for finding his forever home.
Cowboy is a personable and gentle boy who tips the scales at 89 pounds. Needing to lose about 20 of those pounds, he’s looking forward to meeting someone who will provide him with daily exercise and a healthy and regulated diet.
As a youngster, Cowboy was attacked by a cougar and lost one of his legs. He enjoys walking just as much as any other dog, and being a tripod doesn’t seem to slow him down a bit. Slippery floors and flights of stairs are harder for him to navigate, so he would appreciate a single story home with carpet or runners for traction.
Cowboy enjoys the company of other dogs and cats, and would be best suited for kids who are over 12 years old. He prefers children who are old enough or understand that he likes to be treated gently and respectfully.
A favorite of staff and volunteers alike, Cowboy will be a fantastic addition to a happy home! He absolutely loves people and he’s ready to assume his role as the family dog. He has wonderful house manners, a quiet disposition, and is easy to care for in general. He’s one of a kind and very special!
