Bowie was found wandering with our older puppy Maybach and one other dog in the Bayou St. John area of New Orleans. Bowie is a little 4 month old pit puppy. He is fawn colored with a red nose and is the cutest thing ever. Bowie is a tad shy but extremely sweet and is great with all other animals. He's still a bit underweight but is eating well and doing great!
