Well thank HEAVENS Casper didn't get turned into a friendly GHOST when his time ran out at the shelter! Instead, volunteers stepped up to rescue him.

One thing we should say right upfront -- we really are just guessing about Casper's breeds. He is very strong, and pulls on the leash in a way that reminds us of a sled dog. His size and white coat make most people think of Great Pyrenees. He looks a lot like another dog we rescued last year, whose parents were known to be a Great Pyrenees and a Siberian Husky. But he also has just the tiniest bit of red/gold on the edges of his semi-prick ears, and that reminds us of one Pyr/Aussie mix we rescued, and one Pyr/Red Heeler mix.  His tail is an interesting anomaly too -- it is not full length like a Pyr, not curled the way most sled dog breeds are. It's about half the length of a normal Pyrenees tail; he doesn't seem to be sensitive when we touch his tail, so we think maybe his tail has always been like this, rather than that it was cut short due to an accident or injury.  It almost makes us think that maybe he has a naturally bobtailed breed in his family tree -- some Aussies and Heeler are naturally bobtailed and others have docked tails. If you are as curious as we are, maybe your budget would allow you to donate a DNA test so we could find out what contributors there are to Casper's unique good looks.

Casper is very friendly with people, and he is very affectionate, leaning into you frequently to encourage you to pet him.  He should NOT go to a home with cats, as he will chase them every chance he gets.  We think that at some point, he may have been attacked by a big dog, because he seems to get anxious when other big dogs crowd him. He gets along with the other dogs in his foster home just fine, but any time another big dog gets too close, he makes a low growl. We keep a close watch on behavior, and we haven't had any incidents, but the potential is there if the other dog tries to be dominant.

Casper enjoys spending time in the yard, but he also has good manners in the house -- no potty accidents, no chewing or other destructive behavior.  Although we're still getting to know him, we think that maybe he would be happiest in a home where he is the only pet, or maybe shares his home with a dog who is smaller than he is and who won't invade his personal space. He definitely needs a human family who is strong and can manage him on the leash, because HE is strong and can get excited and pull on the leash very hard. 

If Casper sounds like the dog of your dreams, submit an application on our website and we'll be glad to schedule a Meet & Greet where you can see for yourself what a sweet, handsome boy he really is.

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.
