A local shelter dog named: Bowie has finally found his forever home after waiting more than 1250-days in foster care – The 6-year-old pit bull, was born in 2014 while -in the care of Gateway Pet Guardians, a shelter in East Saint Louis, Illinois.
He was adopted by a family when he was a puppy. But sadly, he was returned to the shelter, a few-years later.
After a few months at the shelter, Bowie was placed in a foster home where he had been crashing with her foster parents for the last two: and half years.
Although Bowie is a very-sweet and friendly, dog who is well-trained, nobody wants to adopt him.
Even when his adoption fee had already paid for, and the rescue agreed-to give his future owner; four free private training sessions and a professional photoshoot, the little boy still hadn’t been adopted.
Gateway Pet Guardians decided to shared Bowie’s story -on social media in hopes of finding someone that would give- him a chance.
‘We need help from the public to help, find this guy a home.’
He’s a great dog who is very well trained and just needs someone to give him a chance,” Brittany Fleming, the rescue’s placement manager, told KMOV.
They met with a woman named: Briana and Bowie went home with her. Briana doesn’t have any other pets or children, she’s a social worker and her roommate is a dog trainer, so the shelter believes that they are the perfect match!
“Whoever adopts Bowie is going to inherit a bunch of new friends because he has quite the fan club rooting for him.”
We thought it was a perfect fit for a sensitive guy like Bowie that sometimes just needs a little extra time to warm up to strangers,” the rescue- told 5 On Your Side.
The rescue captured and shared an adorable video of Bowie finding out he was being adopted./ He was overjoyed to meet his new owner, howling and wagging his tail with pure joy!
