Bowie is a big beautiful boy who was literally thrown away by the first humans he knew -- they threw him out of a moving car. Luckily, some Good Samaritans picked him up, took him home, and started looking for a rescue. In spite of his difficult beginning, he has grown into a loving boy who gives kisses and adores getting tummy rubs.

Bowie gets along with all the dogs in his foster home, including big dogs and little dogs, males and females. He plays enthusiastically with dogs who are similar in size and age to him, and is even a good play pal for dogs who are smaller -- he seems intentional about not getting too rough in his play with them. He enjoys playing in the yard, but prefers to sleep inside the house, close to his family.

He has features that tell us he's definitely a Great Pyrenees mix. It's just really difficult to say whether he's mixed with Golden Retriever or possibly Anatolian Shepherd. His coat has a golden glow that makes us think Golden Retriever, but the shape of his head reminds us of some Anatolians we have known and loved. Whatever breeds might make up his DNA, Bowie is definitely a gorgeous dog with a sweet temperament, and he's sure to win you over the first time you meet him. When he's the only big dog in a home, he does show signs of being protective (as in, he will bark at unfamiliar noises), but when there are other big dogs in the home, Bowie is happy to leave the guardian chores to them.

Bowie has an estimated birth date of 10/18/2014, so he's a young adult. He would do best in a home where he has another dog to keep him company, and where there is a big yard where he can run and play.

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.
