He lives at an animal rescue in San Diego County.

His owner says he weighs about 3,000 pounds.

"It does feel like he's always eating. He likes pumpkins when he's in the mood for it and he'll just eat the whole entire pumpkin in one bite," his owner said.

Despite his size the owner says Cowboy is really playful and gentle.
