My story

You can fill out an adoption application online on our official website.

Petra is one of seven dogs who came into rescue together as working LGDs.  They spent their lives guarding goats on a  9600 acre ranch in the Texas Panhandle and were never properly socialized before coming to Bluebonnet. Petra was adopted then returned to us when she started climbing over the 4' fences at her new home. She returned to our pastures, which are enclosed with 5' fences, and everything was good, until she started going over OUR fences too.

We moved Petra to the house, where we have a yard with 6' tall fencing. She has assimilated into the routine of living inside the house, and even chooses to sleep in the crate most days, not because we put her there, but just because we keep the doors open on all our crates so the dogs learn to accept them as just another part of the furniture.

Petra is still very shy on meeting new people, but she does enjoy petting from her family. She is not one to bark unnecessarily, so she could be a great companion for someone who lives in town and has neighbors to consider.

Petra gets along with other dogs unless they bother her during meal times. Then, she doesn't hesitate to defend her bowl. She has never been one to play with other dogs, but recently, she has started making overtures to the male dogs in her foster home, trying to get them to play with her. Given her shy nature, we think it would be wonderful for Petra to have a confident dog in the home, so she can continue to follow that example, as she does in her foster home. She walks well on a leash, and is accustomed to walking with one or more big dogs.

If you think Petra would be the perfect addition to your family, please visit our website to read about our adoption process and submit your application.

Our application process usually includes a vet/reference check, plus landlord check if you rent.

Meet the Pet

We typically arrange a meet & greet at Windsong Ranch in Whitewright TX and invite you to bring your dog/s with you.

Additional adoption info

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 $200 for "Regular" Dogs who are wonderful house pets $300 for Farm-friendly Dogs who won't chase the chickens $300 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.

Go meet their 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.

More about this rescue

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!
