Lucy is the classic All American Girl -- her wholesome good looks are not too threatening to the other girls, and her athletic build looks healthy without making the boys too jealous of her muscles. I bet if she had been born human, she would play sand volleyball.

Lucy gets along well with all the other dogs in our pack, large and small, male and female. She doesn't get in the swimming pool on her own, but when we take her in with us, she really enjoys swimming. We think if she had a pool with easier steps, or maybe a lake, she would probably be in the water more frequently. She will join in a game of fetch, but gets bored easily and is more likely to just hold on to the toy rather than return it just so we can toss it again. Smart girl!

Lucy is a pretty girl with a sleek tuxedo coat, but we really have no idea what combination of breeds she might be. We've made our best guess based on a working knowledge of several breeds that are common in our area, plus photos and breed standards we've read for dozens of dogs, coupled with the likelihood of those breeds actually being found in our area. Comparing all of that to Lucy's looks and personality, we can still only guess that she's part Black Lab, maybe part Rat Terrier (standard size), and probably a little bit of several other breeds. The shape of her face is not quite as broad as a Rottweiler, but her personality reminds me a lot of a wonderfully sweet Rottweiler we loved for many years before she crossed over the Rainbow Bridge.

Lucy does not like being left alone, so will do best in a home where at least one person is home for most of the day or where she has another dog or two to keep her company. She has a high prey drive, so she can NOT go to a home with chickens or livestock. She is a good watchdog and if she's outside, she will sound the alert any time we have visitors. She is house-trained and prefers to sleep inside at night, but during the day, Lucy is equally happy inside the house or outside in our fenced yard. She really loves attention from her humans, but is not needy or demanding.

About Bluebonnet Animal Rescue Network

About Our Rescue Group...

Bluebonnet Animal Rescue Network (BARN) was founded in 2013 to help animals in North Texas, and especially in the Texoma area. We are a non-profit corporation, founded by people who had spent years rescuing an assortment of animals -- from a vulture with a broken wing to feral cats to dogs who were dumped in our rural area. We fostered for another organization for a few years before forming BARN. We are not breed-specific in our rescue efforts, but we have a fair amount of experience with Great Pyrenees and a few other livestock guardian breeds.

We are always looking for more volunteers, including foster homes. And of course, as a non-profit organization, we always appreciate donations of time, services, dollars, and supplies. We usually have a LOT of big dogs in foster, and grooming appointments are expensive, so we are especially glad to have volunteers help us with this task. We would also be glad to have your help spreading the word about Bluebonnet Animal Rescue -- through Facebook, Twitter, Instagram, or any other social media you use. Give us a call and let us know how you would like to help!

Come Meet Our Pets...

We are based at Windsong Ranch in Whitewright, TX. This is a private, working ranch, so visits are by appointment only. We host an annual "Ranch & Rescue Day" in the fall, with a petting zoo, hay ride, and other fun activities. We are working on plans for a monthly adoption event at a local retail store, and will update this when the schedule is confirmed.

Our Adoption Process...

Our adoption process includes an application that helps us get to know you better so we can help you make the best match. If you have pets already, we will talk with your vet's office to be sure that you are being a good guardian for these animals. The next step is a home visit, during which we will pay special attention to your fencing and the shelter you will offer to one of our dogs. Finally, once everything is approved, we will introduce you to one or more dogs. If you fall in love and the feeling is mutual, we will complete a contract.

Our adoption fees vary according to the age and type of dog. We try to list the fee for each dog on his or her profile on our Adopt-a-Pet page, but in general, this is our fee structure:

$100 for Senior Dogs (8 and older)
$150 for "Regular" Dogs who are wonderful house pets
$200 for Farm-friendly Dogs who won't chase the chickens
$250 for Livestock-safe Adult Dogs who will guard goats, sheep, etc.
$300 for Puppies and Young Adults 2 years old and younger

We are an all-volunteer organization, and every one of our volunteers has a "real job" that takes up 8 or more hours a day. So please be patient when you contact us -- we'll respond to you as quickly as we can, but please don't be annoyed if it takes us 24 hours.
