Bowie – female (Mayhew Animal Home, NW London)

4/6/20 – Bowie still needs a home

Please help Bowie by sharing this page!

Beautiful Bowie is a 12 year old Staffy Crossbreed girl in foster care in NW London through Mayhew Animal Home. She’s looking for a fairly active retirement home as an only pet and to have someone for company most of the time.

Bowie can live with dog savvy teenagers. She loves meeting people and can be a bit boisterously friendly at times. She’s often grumpy with other dogs though and needs to be walked in quiet areas so she can concentrate on enjoying herself. She absolutely LOVES long walks in the countryside!

Bowie’s foster carer says, “Bowie is a sweetie and such a loving dog. Despite her size she thinks she’s a lapdog and will curl up with as much of her on you as she can get, and she really likes having her bum scratched with the rubber zoom groom. Yes, she’s shouty but you can pre-empt that most of the time and she’s easily distracted to calm down, cuddling is also a very effective tool for calming her down. Most of the time she doesn’t show her age and plays with enthusiasm well below her years.

“She plays by herself with toys often and really enjoys things like the long snake and the squeaky toys and the duck, but doesn’t go bananas like she does with tennis balls. She’s been out with me for longer walks in the countryside, 8 miles and 9 miles on consecutive days at the weekend. She could have easily carried on!”

Bowie is such a cheerful, cuddly, intelligent girl. She really deserves a happy retirement home and a loving human or two to take out for adventures!
