Cowboy's Story...
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.

FOSTER UPDATE:

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!

Why Adoption is a Great Option

Cowboy, a Tucson Greyhound dog was adopted! Here's how you can benefit by looking at adoption as an option to buying a Greyhound for sale in Tucson, or seeking a Greyhound dog from a breeder in Tucson.

  1. Rescues and shelter volunteers in Tucson already know the personality and tendencies of their pets. This means they can match you with the right pet. That will makes it much easier transition to owning a pet for yourself and your new pet.
  2. On average adoption fees are much less than you'd pay a Tucson breeder, or pet store. Plus most often rescue pets have already been to the veterinarian for a check-up, had a round of vaccinations, and are spayed or neutered. That is a lot of savings!
  3. You will become a hero, and give a needy dog or cat a loving home. In fact, there are even Greyhound breeders who help with Greyhound rescue. One puppy or kitten adopted in Tucson paves the way for another one to be saved.
