About Cowboy

American Staffordshire Terrier mix
Age: Senior
Sex: Male

Cowboy has lived (if you can call it that) in a kennel for the past 5+ years and it's killing him. He is injuring himself in escape attempts. He is depressed. He is too old for this sh*t. Cowboy is as lovable, smart, goofy and charismatic as they come but people pass him over because he's a senior (strike 1), a pit bull mix (strike 2) and will need a patient and empathetic handler (wouldn't you after sleeping on concrete for 5 years? - strike 3). Cowboy knows all his basic commands and is clicker trained, a nose-work champion, and likely graduated top of his class in clown school in a previous life. His best friend and certified professional dog trainer, Genie Tuttle from Dog Genie, is offering FREE training services and full support to the lucky person who welcomes this smarty pants into their home. The team at C.A.R.L ache for him but they can only do so much. What he NEEDS is out. Love and a home will save his life. Seeing seniors live out their golden years in a kennel is one of the most heart-breaking things you'll witness in the shelter world. Please save Cowboy from one more day without his family. If you are interested in fostering (even for one night) or adopting Cowboy, please call, text or e-mail Genie @ or 805-479-8900
