Bony Pit Bull Tossed In Dumpster In Dead Of Night Still Had A Twinkle In His Eye

When one of their adopters was taking out her trash, she heard something inside the dumpsters. When she looked inside, her whole body trembled.

Sitting at the bottom of the dumpster was a Pit Bull locked inside his crate. The dog, later named Bowie, was merely skin and bones. He looked absolutely defeated like he had given up a long time ago. Bowie’s owner didn’t care what happened to the poor pup but Bowie’s luck was about to change.

The pup now had people that would make sure he was okay. The woman who found him called the rescue group and Bowie was taken to a nearby vet clinic. The vet was appalled by his condition and had no choice but to admit him. He needed 24-hour care for the next week.

Bowie was so brave! He warmed up to everyone around him. He was cautious but loving in his own way. After a week at the clinic, he went to live with his medical foster mom and dad. They are experienced in dealing with dogs like Bowie and took excellent care of him.

Bowie, most importantly, had to put on weight. They used slow feeders so he wouldn’t eat too fast. They also dressed him in pajamas to keep him nice and warm. Due to the lack of body fat, Bowie tended to get cold easily and shake. Poor baby!

Two months later, Bowie was ready to go to his new foster home. He looked so much healthier. He was so excited to meet his new foster mom and dad, Connie and Matt. Connie even made him a welcome home sign!

Bowie was a bit of a cry baby at first, and that of course was understandable. He was in a strange place with strange people. But with persistence and love, Bowie began to bond with Connie and Matt. Connie was pretty much head over heels for Bowie (and Bowie felt the same way!)

Two days later, Connie sent her husband Matt a text while he was at work. The text would change the course of Bowie’s life forever. What comes next is absolutely amazing! You can’t miss it! Thank you to The Dodo for sharing Bowie’s story with us all! Press play on the video below and see for yourself why fosters and rescue groups are THE BEST!



10 Common Dog Health Problems

Some health problems are specific to certain breeds, such as breathing complications for flat-faced dogs. But several other canine health issues can affect any dog. Here are 10 typical health conditions you need to watch out for in your four-legged best friend:

Top 10 Common Dog Health Problems

Skin Problems

One of the most obvious signs that your dog has a skin condition is itching. Other symptoms that may suggest that your dog has a skin problem include rashes, redness, dry skin, lumps, bumps, skin sores, dandruff, and hair loss.

Ear Diseases

Approximately 20 percent of dogs suffer from ear disease. It’s particularly common in breeds with floppy ears like cocker spaniels and basset hounds. It’s common to see wax buildup or discharge in their ear canal. But others may experience pain, itchiness, redness, swelling, and crusting in the ears.

Urinary Tract Infections

Simply known as UTI, this condition can make it uncomfortable for your beloved companion to pass urine. Signs of urinary tract infection include drinking water more than usual and passing urine more often than usual. Your dog may also only pass a small amount or lose bladder control. Additionally, you may see blood in their urine or notice a strong smell to it.


There are countless reasons why your pet may throw up. You don’t need to visit the vet each time your dog vomits. But it’s also not something you can just ignore. Don’t try to guess. If the vomiting persists or occurs with other symptoms like diarrhea or lethargy, you need to rush to the vet. It could be a sign of severe health problems, such as poisoning or gastrointestinal blockage.


This symptom may occur on its own or be accompanied by vomiting. Its potential causes are similar to vomiting. One or two episodes of diarrhea may not be a pet emergency. But recurring diarrhea can result in dehydration.


At some point in their lives, your pet may have to deal with discomfort due to internal or external parasites. Symptoms of parasites generally vary, depending on a few factors. These include the kind of parasite that has plagued your pet, where it lives, and how severe its infestation is.

Dental Issues

Like us, your dog can develop canine dental diseases due to high levels of plaque buildup. Several signs indicate that your pet may have dental disease. These include difficulty eating, bleeding of the gums or teeth, loose teeth, and bad breath.


Nearly 30 percent of the general dog population is considered obese. Several factors contribute to a pet’s risk. These include age, genetic predisposition, lack of exercise, and overfeeding, among others.


This joint problem can restrict your dog’s mobility. Bring Fido to the vet if you see your dog slow down or limp before and after walks. Other signs include licking or chewing on tender areas and behavioral changes.


Symptoms of dog poisoning vary widely, depending on the kind of toxin a pet has been exposed to. The signs can range from vomiting to drooling, breathing difficulties, seizures, or worse, coma. Some of the most common poisonous substances are human foods like chocolates, grapes, raisins, onions, and caffeine. Other known culprits are human medications, household cleaning products, pesticides, and some plants.
