Featured Dog:  meet Bowie!

Beautiful Bowie with the most mesmerizing eyes is just a toddler at about 20 months old and was rescued from a neglectful situation. Since being taken in by a loving family, Bowie has made huge strides and is now ready to find his forever home. Bowie seems fine with other big (non-alpha) dogs, but probably should not go to a home with small dogs or cats. This gorgeous boy is still growing and we expect he will be a pretty large dog once fully-grown and filled out. His foster has been taking him to obedience training where he is doing well, but he will need a consistent, firm handler as this guy is super smart and may tend to try to "take charge". He will need a dedicated owner to continue with his training to make sure he reaches his best potential. Although this guy might never be a "dog-park" kind of dog, he does well on leash and enjoys walks. He's relaxed inside the home, but also a great athlete who would be a great hiking or running partner. He bonds strongly with his person/people and so deserves to be someone's companion where he is loved and well-cared for.

Bowie is fully house-trained, crate-trained and does well riding in the car. SO much potential for this gorgeous, intelligent boy! He is being fostered in the Tacoma/Lakewood, Washington area.
