Cowboy is an amazingly massive American Bulldog and Pit-bull mix. He is 7 years old. His former owner got him from a friend when he was just a small pup. He was surrenderd to MACC because his owner was told he cannot have a dog of Cowboy’s size in his apartment.
Cowboy is a big baby. He loves people. He is very playful with adults. He is very tolerant of kids. Sometimes Cowboy doesn’t realize his own size. He tends to jump up when he is existed. Overall Cowboy is a gentle, lovable dog. He does bark at other small dogs. His former owner mentioned multiple times that he does not get along other other large, male dogs. He has growled at them in the past. Cowboy is very tolerant of cats.
Cowboy has never bitten another animal or human. He doesn’t mind if someone touches his food bowl while he is eating. He doesn’t mind if someone takes a treat from him. If you can find a bath tub big enough to fit him, Cowboy seems to enjoy a good bath.
FOR A NEW FAMILY TO KNOW
Cowboy is described as a very affectionate and mellow dog. He really does love attention. He is a master of catching treats and loves a good belly rub. His activity level is medium. He loves to play with balls and loves to go to the park to find tree branches. He has been kept mostly indoors. He is used to a mix of wet and dry food. He was normally fed around 8:00 a.m. and again at 4:30 p.m. He loves beef sticks and almost any other type of treat. Cowboy will look for open grass outside when he needs to go to the bathroom. He knows how to sit, give paw and get down on command. He does tend to pull on the leash when he has to go to the bathroom. Cowboy is an amazing, smart and loveable dog. He deserves a home full of love.
