Dog Whines With Joy When He Finds Out He’s Finally Adopted After 1250 Days In Foster Care

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. “Whoever adopts Bowie is going to inherit a bunch of new friends because he has quite the fan club rooting for him.”

Their post quickly went viral, and the animal shelter received more than 40 applications from people who wanted to adopt Bowie. They went through all of them very carefully to find the perfect candidate.

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!

“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!

Watch Bowie’s adorable reaction in the video below:

After 2.5 years in foster care, Bowie finally found his forever home and his beloved owners that he deserves.

Congratulations Bowie!
