Bowie was a victim of neglect before his rescue. It took a long while for him to come out of his shell, but thanks to the wonderful foster family, he had all the time in the world to do that. It seemed that due to his abusive past, he became selective about who he’ll walk up to on walks, and foster parents have been working really hard on encouraging better reception of petting. All this effort wasn't in vain- Bowie caught an eye of a wonderful couple who fell in love with Bowie's story immediately. It didn't take long to make it official. Neither his future forever parents nor Bowie were interested in waiting while the happily ever after was just out of reach. And just like that, Bowie was no longer homeless. Enjoy the rest of your life, sweet boy!
