We don't know much about Magnolia's past because she was picked up as a stray in Corsicana, TX. She has double dew claws, which are a breed distinctive for Great Pyrenees, but her coat has hints of gold or lemon that make us think she may have either Yellow Lab or possibly Golden Retriever in her family tree. She's underweight but should start putting on some weight now that she is getting plenty of good dog food; we think a healthy weight for her might be around 75 lbs, maybe even 80 lbs.

Magnolia was very skittish in the shelter, but since getting out of jail, she is learning quickly that humans are OK. Her whole body wiggles with excitement when she comes running to us for love and attention, and we're working to break her from the bad habit of wanting to jump up to greet us with a kiss on the face. (It's adorable but isn't really a good habit for a big dog.)

She gets along well with other dogs and is very playful. Judging from the way she barks at our barn cats, we think she would probably chase them if she had the chance. (So we don't give her the chance.)

Magnolia has been spayed, vaccinated, and microchipped, so she is accepting applications and looking forward to meeting prospective adopters. If you would like to meet Magnolia, please submit an application 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.
