Cowboys story is one of tenacity and survival; this makes him a true Texas cowboy! He and 3 other dogs were found roaming the streets and were so fearful of people that they had to be trapped for their own safety.  It didn't take Cowboy too long to realize a warm comfy foster home was way better than life on the streets. See, Cowboy is pretty smart too! 

Cowboy is a sweet, sweet kiddo and has really flourished since his initial meeting with people when he was still so fearful but wanted love so badly that he belly crawled when called. Today Cowboy is still just a bit shy.  He is good with kids, is housebroken and walks well on a leash. 

All Cowboy needed was a little love, some confidence and assurance that he would be safe in our care.  He really is a great dog and wow...what a looker!
