I’m Bowie! I am estimated to be a 6-year-old Catahoula Leopard Dog mix. I’m a big boy, weighing about 75 lbs and I came to OPH from South Carolina, so I’m a southern gentleman. Howdy-do!
My foster mom thinks I’m awesome! She says I’m crate-trained, I haven’t had a single accident in my foster home, and I only bark when the other dogs in my foster home bark to welcome someone home. I sometimes talk and sing when my food is being prepared, because I love mealtime! I also get very excited about going out and I spring about 3 feet straight up off the ground when it’s time to go! I am a strong boy, so I get walked on an easy-walk harness, which works well for me. My foster mom says I’m smart to avoid obstacles and not get my leash tangled around them. Yay, me!
I am a “people” dog, so I love to be with my foster family and getting attention. I can get nervous and anxious around other dogs, so I would probably do best in a home as an only dog, but I think I would do well in almost any environment: apartment, townhouse, single-family home. As long as I can be part of the family and show my devotion, I will be a happy boy.
Come meet me!
This dog's bio is based off the experiences of the foster and/or volunteers of OPH as well as any information that we received from the shelter or previous owner. This is very important because it means that while they may act one way in the foster’s home, you may experience something different in your home.
