Bowie, a six-year-old pit bull from St. Louis' dog shelter finally found his forever home after being with a foster parent for the past years.


There is no question that dogs are indeed a man's best friend, and Bowie, the six-year-old pit bull, finally found his life companion.

Bowie has been living in foster care for quite some time but recently was brought home by an owner perfectly fit for him.



Bowie was born in 2014 at Gateway Pet Guardians and was adopted shortly after, but also returned in a few years.

Months later, Bowie found shelter in a foster house for two and a half years. Still, it wasn't a place he could call home. According to placement manager Brittany Fleming:

"He's a great dog who is very well trained and just needs someone to give him a chance."

Finally, the adorable pit bull found a loving owner, Briana, who adopted him after his story was shared and received over 40 applicants.

A few weeks ago, as the coronavirus was at its peak in Wuhan, China, a dog named Xiao Bao waited for his owner at the hospital lobby.

Bowie is a sensitive dog who needs to be the only pet in the household. He is also afraid of children, which makes Briana, who has neither, a perfect owner. Additionally, Briana's roommate is a dog trainer, being the ideal home for Bowie.



Similarly, Sandi, a 12-year-old Pitbull Boxer, was adopted after spending 2,461 days at the Marion-Grant County Humane Society in Indiana.

The cute dog found a family earlier this year with the Rhodes clan who showed her love and care from the very first day.

Despite her adoption becoming a bittersweet moment for the Marion-Grant County Humane Society, they were extremely happy that Sandi got what she deserved -- a home.



Dogs have proven themselves loyal to man several times. A few weeks ago, as the coronavirus was at its peak in Wuhan, China, a dog named Xiao Bao waited for his owner at the hospital lobby.

Xiao Bao waited for his owner every day for three months, not knowing that his pensioner already passed away due to the virus.

The hospital staff grew to love the dog and sympathized with him. Despite being sent away several times, Xiao Bao still found his way back to the hospital until he was taken by the Wuhan Small Animal Protection Association.
