24th May 2023 and meet the beautiful Bowie. This poor boy was left tied to the gate at the Sanctuary this morning. Although micro-chipped, the number didn’t tell us anything and there has been no answer at the address registered with the chip.

Bowie is a beautiful lurcher with different coloured eyes and is only about 14 months old.

“He was found tied up by one of our volunteer dog walkers,” said Sanctuary Manager Karen Weed. “He is a lovely dog and has been well cared for before. Luckily the volunteer found him early as it was an extremely hot day for a dog to be left out. Obviously we don’t know his history so we will assess him. If anyone knows him, or has any information on him please contact the Sanctuary.”
We don’t know the circumstances that led up to Bowie being left here and we never judge. Sometimes owners can feel desperate, but whatever the circumstances, Bowie is in exactly the right place to be cared for and given some loving. He will probably feel a little confused at first, but we will make sure he starts to feel settled. We will continue to try and find his owner and if we can’t, or his owner doesn’t want him back for whatever reason, we will find him a loving new home where he is given a 2nd chance.
