Of course, all of the dogs featured win me over in their own way. But this time, a unique mix named Cowboy caught my eye, and I just had to share him with you!
Check. Out. Those. Ears. I can't get enough! This photo absolutely melts my heart.
From the Best Friends page: "Cowboy is a little man with big ears, a big heart, and a great smile. He's very outgoing, bonding quickly with new people, and playing nicely with other dogs. Born in 2006, Cowboy is at an age where he equally enjoys his playtime and relaxation time. The poor boy was found tied to a car in a hot parking lot, and his people never returned for him. Now he's looking for someone who will never leave him. Could that be you?"
At approximately 8 years old, Cowboy is considered a senior dog. My Riley is about the same age, and I can definitely vouch for the fact that 8 is a great age! Riley loves both playing and sleeping, and it sounds like the same is true of Cowboy.
The website calls him an Affenpinscher/Australian Cattle Dog (Blue Heeler) - isn't that crazy?! Not sure where the Affenpinscher comes in...any ideas? Cowboy is a nice mid-sized fella, and he would make someone an amaaaazing pet! Since his new furrever home can't be mine...could it be yours?
