Chiweenie • Small
Bowie is a 1 year old, 20 pound, Chihuahua/Dachshund mix. He came to his foster family very fearful and skittish. He is housebroken, but was unfamiliar with a normal dog activities, including walks, and was very leery of humans. Over the past couple of weeks, Bowie has has built up his confidence, and has become a sweet, loving, playful pup, with an adorable personality. He now loves to go on long morning walks, and has some favorite squeaky toys that he can't live without! He plays fetch, and will run and play all day! Bowie loves to snuggle with his favorite person, and is learning to sit, stay, and lay down. He is not a fan of his crate, but it is a work in progress. He's been slowly introduced to other dogs, and although he is still a little fearful, he is not aggressive, and has begun to be playful with them. He has not had exposure to cats, or young children. Bowie is looking forward to finding his forever home, that will continue his socialization, and give him the love and trust he deserves. Bowie's adoption fee is $400.
If you've already applied and would like to transfer your application to Bowie, please submit an Adoption Application Transfer Request.

All of our dogs come spayed or neutered, up to date on vaccinations, including rabies (if age appropriate) and bordetella, are microchipped, heartworm negative, current on flea/tick and heartworm prevention, dewormed, and treated for any ailments found upon veterinary examination. The adoption fee covers a portion of these services, and makes it possible for us to continue rescuing animals. Please note that our pets come from shelters, so we CANNOT guarantee age, breed, mix of breeds, or adult size.
For more information on the adoption fees and the adoption process, please complete our adoption application - an application allows us to get to know your family better so we can assess whether the animal you are interested in is a good match for your home.
An application does not obligate you to adopt, and can be transferred to any pet. Please understand that due to the volume of applications some animals receive, we are unable to contact all applicants. If your application is considered a good fit for the pet you are interested in, or even a different pet, a volunteer will give you a call within 7-10 days. If you would like to transfer your application to a different pet, please submit an adoption application transfer request. You will need the application number and email address from your original application.
We are a foster-based rescue and do not have a shelter location where pets can be seen during the week. Please see our Facebook page for our weekly adoption album if you are interested in meeting a pet in person. Not all animals attend every adoption event, please check our Facebook page for animal event times and locations before you make a trip to meet a specific animal.
Thanks so much for caring about a needy animal!
