Cowboy is a red fawn and white boy, who just finsished his racing career. Cowboy is now in foster learning about home life. He is successfully living with cat, so it appears he does fine with small dogs and cats. He is a brother to recently adopted, Scooby. Cowboy has an adoption pending.
Cowboy is a confident dog who loves people. He is very affectionate and likes giving kisses and being the top pet in the home. He wants to be touching his people at all times. Switching from racing to snoozing was an easy transition for this greyhound. He prefers to nap with his head in someone’s lap. Cowboy is house trained using a doggie door.
His foster guardians work full-time, but Cowboy has many other fur kids around for company, so separation anxiety is not an issue. He ignores the vacuum cleaner when it’s running, but barks at the lawn mower! Initially crated for the first couple of days, Cowboy tolerated the confinement but prefers to hang out on his couch – and that doesn’t fit into the crate. Cowboy has gained some weight since being in foster care, and his appetite is good.
This greyhound loves to walk and will pull on the leash when he sees another dog or person. After all, he needs to meet them RIGHT NOW! The foster family believes that Cowboy knows his name and knows the basic command, “stay.” Cowboy may be fine as an only dog because he is very confident and doesn’t like to share attention or toys. He is living with a cat and, every occasionally, wants to chase the cat. The foster guardians are training Cowboy that this behavior is unacceptable. He has met various small dogs and, after the initial sniffing routine, accepts them. However, when at the Doggie Park, Cowboy has to be muzzled because he gets nippy with other dogs, including other greyhounds. He also tends to be overbearing with small dogs.
Cowboy is a smart dog, but he needs to learn that being “Top Dog” includes sharing space and good manners!
