“Bow-wow, woof woof, bow-wow, wow” 

 

You may have seen a Tweet from Duncan Jones which we Retweeted back at the start of the year. It was regarding the sad tale of a three-year-old Lurcher cross, Bowie, who had been “overlooked by hundreds of potential new owners because his eyes are different colours”.

 

Bowie had been looking for a home since November, and following an appeal by Dogs Trust Bridgend, Duncan Tweeted the following:

 

"Hoping someone near that dog might be able to help him find a home. One of those weird ones that got to me. "

 

Well, the good news is that Bowie (Photoshopped together here with his equally odd-eyed namesake), has found love in the form of new owner Doctor Nia Bowen and Andrew Snow.

Blue-eyed Bowie catches the eye of new owners - Hypnotic hound finds home after rehoming appeal

 

Bowie, an overlooked pooch at Dogs Trust Bridgend, whose eyes resembled his namesake, David Bowie, has finally found his furever home.

 

Bowie was overlooked by hundreds of potential new owners because of his different coloured eyes but after an appeal to find him a home, and support from David Bowie’s son, Duncan Jones himself, he has finally found the home he deserves.

 

The three-year-old Lurcher cross had been residing at the Charity’s rehoming centre in Bridgend since November 2016, until he caught the eye of new owner Doctor Nia Bowen who had seen the appeal online to get him a home.

 

Nia said: “We had recently lost our dogs so we weren’t necessarily looking to get another one straightaway. But when we saw Bowie’s photo online calling for people to give him a home, we fell in love instantly. He is a brilliant, bouncy boy, with a real zest for life and we’re so pleased to be able to give him a happy home.”

 

Angela Wetherall, Rehoming Centre Manager at Dogs Trust Bridgend comments:

“We are so pleased that Bowie has found the forever home he deserves. He was quite the celebrity at the centre with staff and we’re so pleased that the appeals to get him a home were seen and heard.  We are very grateful for the media attention and to David Bowie’s son for tweeting about this lovely dog. He’s a little star and we know he’ll be very happy with his new owners.”
