Princess is a spry senior who isn't very demanding. She likes having a place on the sofa, and enjoys a little head-scratch, but she isn't demanding, expecting you to pet her non-stop any time you're near. She likes to sleep on the rug next to the bed, but if another dog claims that spot, she is happy to move back to the sofa. Princess gets along with the other dogs in her foster home, ranging from a 7 LB Yorkie to a 100+ LB Great Pyrenees.  If one of the younger dogs doesn't show good manners and gets a little too rambunctious, she will issue a little bark to get their attention, sort of like your 1st grade teacher telling you to play nice.

Princess was surrendered to Dallas Animal Services by an "owner" who said she is 15 years old. We didn't have the opportunity to talk to that person, so we don't know whether that was just a guess on their part, but we are pretty darn sure Princess is NOT 15 years old. Her eyes are clear -- no cataracts or "clouds". Her teeth are in pretty good shape. She doesn't move slowly as though she has arthritis or joint pain. In short, she acts like a middle-aged dog. If we had never heard any estimate of her age, we would probably list her as 6 - 8 years old TOPS. Maybe the owner was just making a guess. Maybe she's 8 - 10 years old. Or maybe Princess really IS 15 years old and is just in amazingly great shape. We can't say for sure, so we're listing her as a senior just to be on the safe side.

Princess has not been tested with cats, but the one time she saw one of our feral cats race across the yard, she gave chase, so she probably needs a home with no cats. She visited our chicken yard and seemed mildly interested, but was easily called away when she started to follow a hen into the chicken coop. So if you keep backyard chickens, Princess could probably be taught to leave them alone.

As a senior, Princess has a reduced adoption fee of only $100. Our process starts with an application, which you can find on our website at www.bluebonnetrescue.org.

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.
