Hi, I’m Bowie! I am a handsome 6 year old boy who has so much love to give. Bowie is the chillest dude we know, and he just loves to be loved and give love in return. He makes friends everywhere he goes, because he is the most laid back guy around. Bowie enjoys socializing with other dogs on walks, pack walks and play dates, but if they bark or are too crazy, it makes him nervous. He just can’t understand what they are so worked up about! We rescued Bowie from a local high kill shelter where he was brought in as a stray, his life was not the life of safety, love and comfort, which we can tell from the severe callouses he had and the not so nice backyard crop job that was done to his ears. Once Bowie got a taste of what life should be like, he left his past where it should be. He is an easy going guy, who doesn’t like being confined in a crate but does hang out in his exercise pen inside his foster moms house. He enjoys his plush dog bed and pillows to call his own that are inside his safe space. Bowie would enjoy a calmer house, he does like to walk a few miles a day but definitely prefers to have peace at home. He would make the perfect companion to another calm adult canine. Bowie is the perfect houseguest, he is not confined and just hangs out during the day free in his foster home while his foster mom is at work. Bowie has excellent leash manners, we all laugh and smile when he purses his lips and tells us how excited he is to go on a walk. He has graduated from basic obedience training classes, is house trained, current on all vaccines, neutered and microchipped. If you would love to make this stunning, regal boy a member of your family please contact us!

About Orange County Pit Bull Rescue

About Our Rescue Group...

Orange County Pit Bull Rescue is an all volunteer organization working to build a community of responsible dog owners. We accept pit bulls from a variety of unfortunate circumstances and provide them with a second chance. Since we do not have a boarding facility, all OCPBR dogs are taken into responsible, loving foster homes. The dogs stay with their foster families until their own forever home is found. We are also working on developing free and low-cost resources for spay/neuter, microchipping, vaccinations, and training. Contact us today if you’d like to be part of the solution!
Mission Statement: Orange County Pit Bull Rescue will work to create a safe, supportive community for Pit Bulls by:

1. Rescuing dogs that meet the standard temperament for pit bulls and placing them in foster care. Providing proper socialization, medical care and training to ensure successful placement in adoptive homes.

2. Working with our community to keep Pit Bulls from entering shelters. Providing support to owners to help with any challenges faced owning this breed. Offering necessary assistance such as free food and supplies, referrals and advice, and financial help when available.

3. Developing free and low-cost spay and neuter programs as well as vaccination and microchipping clinics for low-income pit bull owners.

4. Building a community of support for Pit Bull Owners by providing activities and opportunities for proper socialization; advising on positive ways to train your Pit Bull and help with behavioral problems; and education on responsible ownership and bite prevention.

5. Working to change perceptions of pit bulls by educating the public on the history and true temperament of the breed; adopting out breed ambassadors to responsible owners and offering assistance to owners who would like their dogs to become certified Canine Good Citizens and/or therapy dogs.

Applicants are required to fill out an adoption application and recieve a subsequent home visit with the adoptable dog. Our adoption fee is $250 ($300 for dogs less than a year) and includes a spay/neuter surgery, vaccinations, deworming, microchip and collar. We provide owner support for the lifetime of the animal.
