Facts about Blue Bonnet

Blue Bonnet-BlueTick Coonhound, female, 9 yr. old (March 2014)

Blue is a gentle creature. She is slow to warm up, but earning her trust is well worth the wait.

She lives in a foster home with a cat, a dog, a three-year-old, and a baby. She shows a curiosity for the cat, but no aggression. She even tolerates an occasional ear or tail tug from the three-year-old. And she loves stealing kisses off the baby.

She is housebroken, but not very good at telling mom and dad when she needs to go out. She does great on a leash and LOVES daily walks through the orchard. However, when she catches a scent, be ready to hold on tight! Her tail starts wagging and she is on a mission.

It has taken two weeks for her to adjust and she is still coming into her own. She was very nervous at the start. Her tail was tucked between her legs and she had the saddest look in her eyes.

She refused to walk up steps or stairs and had to be carried by mom and dad. So any potential adopters may need to be prepared to carry her until she adjusts. (She weighs 65lbs.) We suspected it might be arthritis, but she is doing much better. So much better that she has learned to jump over our baby gate to say hello to the cat!

She has no interest in toys or treats--not even peanut butter in her kong toy! We have tried. She is just content lounging on the couch and being lazy.

She is very low maintenance and would make a great family dog.

Blue is currently being fostered in Gardners, PA but can be moved to MD.

She is 9+ years old, but still has so much life and love left in her.

She is fully vetted. She has had all her shots. She is on heartguard, glucosomine tablets, and a flea/tick preventative. She is also microchipped. All she needs is a forever family to spend the rest of her doggie days.

About Bourbon County Rescue

About Our Rescue Group...

Rescue BC is a multi-faceted, foster-based rescue. We only take animals on euthanasia lists. We vet them, get them healthy enough for adoption, alter them and place them in loving, forever homes. Every animal we rescue is vetted and tested according to veterinary standards, vaccinated, wormed, treated for parasites, altered and then placed for adoption.
We rescue from rural Kentucky shelters because those animals have no other chance of rescue. All county shelters in Kentucky euthanize for space, and many have kill rates over 90%. We have saved many animals from "death row" through the extensive foster and social networking-based work that we do. If you would be interested in fostering for us please email

Come Meet Our Pets...

12960 Middlebrook Road #520A
Germantown, MD 20874
Every other Saturday
4:00 - 8:00

Approved adopters will be reserved time to meet with a pet. Our volunteers will introduce you to the pets so you can spend time with a pet. Please clean up after the pet you are visiting, and keep the pet under control at all times. Puppies and cats should NOT be placed on the ground.
If you do not have an approved application, visiting hours are after 6:30 PM.

Our Adoption Process...

The first step in the adoption process is to request an application from Please allow 1-2 days to receive the application. Please be patient as we are 100% volunteer supported. We will need several days to make the calls on your application. The current pets in the home must be spayed/neutered, up to date on vaccines and annual exams, and currently on heartworm preventative for dogs. You must be 21 years of age and gainfully employed.
Once you are approved, a volunteer will contact you and invite you to a Meet and Greet to visit with a pet. All our pets are fostered in private homes and only come to the event when they have a potential adopter.
Plan to spend 1-2 hours at the Meet and Greet. It takes time to unload our pets and give them an opportunity to relieve themselves. You will have time to visit with your pet to decide if this is the right pet for your family. You will be required to sign a legal contract and we will go over the medical records with you. You will be required to take your new pet to the vet within 7 days of adopting.
We charge an adoption fee for all of our animals. This fee varies depending on the vetting requirements of that particular animal. The adoption fee is cash only.
If you have any questions, please email
