Elsa is a pretty girl who came to us from Arizona, as part of an extreme hoarding case. She and the other dogs that were rescued had been left in the field with livestock and not well socialized with people. Elsa is friendly but cautious on meeting new people and she has shown us that she prefers living in the house rather than in the pasture. She has grown quite a bit in her socialization since she has been with us, and is now a friendly and well adjusted member of our house pack. Due to the number of dogs that we might have at any one time, our house can be a bit chaotic at times, and Elsa has shown us that she would do best in a home with a peaceful and quiet environment.

Elsa is safe with both goats and chickens, and one of her favorite activities is to go out to the chicken yard with us every day, although she's ready to come back to the house when you are.

Elsa does well in a crate, but she is reliably house-trained, so she doesn't need a crate.  She gets along well with other dogs, but doesn't seem to need the company of another dog in order to be happy.  When she has been around puppies, Elsa has been very protective of them, so if you are looking for a companion for a puppy, Elsa would definitely be a good choice. She has been vaccinated, spayed, microchipped, and heartworm tested (negative), so she is ready to go to a new home!  Submit your application on our website today.

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.
