When you see me, you then understand what I am named Cowboy - I look just like a cute little cow. Unlike a lot of poor stray dogs, I used to have a family. Sadly, one day in early April, I was abandoned on the hill of a mountain when I was about five months old. I didn’t’ know what was going on and still faithfully waiting for my family to pick me up. After wandering there for a few days, I was hungry and exhausted. As I was feeling hopeless, two kind ladies spotted me and came to my rescue.
Thankfully, I was cared for in a loving foster home and then put up for adoption. However, dogs like my size are not easy to be adopted since most people live in apartments and prefer dogs of smaller size. It is God’s blessing, though. My foster mom is not in a rush to find me home. Instead, she is very careful when choosing a home for her rescues because cases of dog abuse are reported often here. Besides, she doesn’t want me to be abandoned again. I am friendly to people even though I am shy at the beginning. Mom says my color makes me very special and beautiful and that I deserve a nice warm family to love and take care of me forever. I hope they find me soon because I’m just bursting to give someone all my love!
