Story
You can fill out an adoption application online on our official website.Bobby's mom is a Great Pyrenees/Maremma who has spent her life as a working livestock guardian dog, first in Kansas and later in Texas. Bobby was raised with goats, and had some exposure to chickens, but always seemed more interested in playing with the other dogs than in protecting the livestock. We moved him into the house for some basic training, such as how to walk on a leash, as well as crate-training and house/potty-training. He also got a refresher course in good manners around chickens. He did really well with all of these changes, but didn't really seem HAPPY in the house, so we moved him into one of our paddocks. Bobby seems happier living outside, but will come in the house if that's what you ask. He has good guardian instincts as far as walking the perimeter and barking when he hears coyotes. We think the best home for Bobby might be as a family guardian on a small homestead, where he can live outside, but be allowed to come inside during thunderstorms, which frighten him. He is very shy on meeting new people, so he needs an adopter with the patience to earn his trust. He also needs secure fencing that is at least 5' tall. He hasn't challenged the fencing at Windsong Ranch, but because of his skittishness with strangers, we don't feel safe putting him in a new home with fencing shorter than 5'. Once a fearful dog goes over the fence, it can be almost impossible to get them home again. If Bobby looks like just the companion you need in your life, please submit your application at www.bluebonnetrescue.org.Visit this organization's web site to see any additional information available about this pet.July 2, 2024, 7:12 pm

Story
You can fill out an adoption application online on our official website.Nell was just 3 months old when she, her mom, and two siblings were picked up by animal control in rural Oklahoma. They were picked up from a property where they were in the pasture with goats. Animal control had to use a catch-pole to catch them because the whole little family was showing a fair amount of fear-based aggression. Sadly, the animal control officer made the decision to euthanize one puppy, saying s/he was too aggressive. It's really hard to imagine a 3-month old puppy being so aggressive that an experienced person couldn't have dealt with the issue, but seeing that the animal control officer was willing to put down a puppy, a local person volunteered to foster mom and her remaining two puppies until she could find a rescue to take them in. When we brought them here, the puppies (whom we named Nell and Maynard) were very frightened, and they tried to avoid my attempts to touch them, but they were never aggressive. They simply acted like feral pups who had ZERO experience with humans, other than their very unfortunate interaction with animal control. Their mom (whom we named Violet) was very aggressive in her attempts to protect her puppies, so it surprised us that the mom survived and a puppy was killed by animal control. The mom's aggression made it a challenge to work with the pups, so we separated them, with mom moving into the house and the pups staying in one of our barn kennels. After she was old enough to be spayed, we brought Nell inside the house. Ironically, her mom Violet acted like she didn't know Nell at all, but another one of our Great Pyrenees mix adult females acted as a surrogate mom to her. They shared a giant 54" crate at night and usually went outside for potty breaks together. Nell was making a little bit of progress in learning to trust me, but then we moved her and her brother to another foster home where we hoped they would get  more attention than we could give them and make more progress. Unfortunately, even after two years in that home, we didn't see any real progress, so we moved Nell and Maynard back to Windsong Ranch. They are once again moving in the right direction -- they are learning to walk on a leash and to sleep in a crate.  They are still very skittish, but they will go outside to take care of their potty business and then come back in the house. They observe the other dogs and sometimes engage in play with them. Mostly it seems that Nell and Maynard are learning what it means to be a house dog with people who love them. We try to pet each one every time we walk past them, maybe just a 5-second interaction, but it gets repeated multiple times a day, with the hope being that our persistence and consistency in having positive interactions with them will show Nell and Maynard that we can be trusted, that not all humans are terrible people. We would love to find a foster or adopter for Nell who could help her move to the next level in her journey to being a family pet. We think she would do best in a home with another dog who is confident, who loves their humans, and who would enjoy playing with Nell.  Taking her on a daily leash walk could help improve her skills and increase her confidence. If you have the patience and compassion to love Nell and work with her to overcome her difficult start in life, please complete the application on our website at www.bluebonnetrescue.org.  Visit this organization's web site to see any additional information available about this pet.July 2, 2024, 7:12 pm

Story
You can fill out an adoption application online on our official website.Lindsey was pregnant when she was picked up by animal control in a small East Texas town. She delivered 10 pups in the shelter, but one did not survive. It's really a testament to the care that shelter staff and volunteers provided that they lost only one, as a shelter is no place for newborn puppies. The shelter posted this precious family, looking for a rescue to take them. Great Pyrenees rescues across Texas turned them down because they are obviously mixes, and the rescues were already jam-packed with dogs and pups who looked more like Pyrs. Shelter staff had no choice but to add Lindsey and all her puppies to their list for euthanasia, which would have been a sad day for everyone. Thankfully, one of our foster moms volunteered to foster the whole family, and we were happy to take them into Bluebonnet Animal Rescue. We love our Great Pyrs, but we are not limited to just one breed, so it didn't matter to us that they are mixes. We think Lindsey is a Great Pyrenees/Border Collie mix. She's friendly and playful, and loves people. Lindsey has been spayed, vaccinated, and microchipped.  She gets along well with other dogs, but can be a little bit alpha in her behavior.  She enjoys taking a dip in the wading pool to cool off in summer. Lindsey has a high prey drive and is NOT safe with livestock or cats.

Story
You can fill out an adoption application online on our official website. Herman is a sweet boy who had a rough start in life. He had a HUGE growth on his back left foot which was terribly infected. We took him to our vet where he received antibiotics for his infected foot. X-rays revealed that the growth had basically ruined the structure of his foot, so amputation was the only viable option. The vet estimates that the growth must have been there for many months, perhaps even more than a year. Herman's leg was amputated, and that made a great difference for him. No evidence of cancer or anything else serious has been found, so Herman should be able to live a long and healthy life from here on out. Herman is sweet and friendly, and doesn't let the fact that he has only 3 legs stop him. He moves around very well whether inside the house or climbing up the big slate stairs in our yard. He gets along well with all of our other dogs, and he is safe with chickens. Herman enjoys time in the yard, but he also appreciate being able to come in the house, especially during summer heat. He will nap in one of the open crates, and seems to appreciate the privacy that a crate provides. But he gets a little anxious if you close him in the crate. We DO close the crate door for short periods, just to help condition him to accept it, because you never know when it's going to be important for a dog to be crated. There are so many circumstances when crate-training is helpful, so while we don't force anything on Herman (or any other dog), we do like to work with them to accept the crate as a safe place. Herman really enjoys the company of other big white dogs, so he would probably not be a good choice as someone's only dog. But he also likes the company of humans, so this is not a dog to put outside and ignore. If Herman looks and sounds like the perfect addition to your family, please submit your application today!

Female, Adult
Whitewright, TX

(when grown) Large 61-100 lbs (28-45 kg)

Good with dogs, Good with cats, House-trained, Spayed or Neutered,
Story
You can fill out an adoption application online on our official website. In the summer of 2022, Zoey and Cuppy were wandering around a rural part of Collin County until they finally got tired and stopped to rest at a farm, thin and ragged. A Good Samaritan took them in and started looking for a rescue to help. We said “yes” and within a few days, Zoey delivered puppies (we assume Cuppy is the father). We don't know what kind of life Zoey and Cuppy had before coming into rescue, but they both appreciate the comforts of living inside the house -- especially a good cushy bed and air-conditioning in summer time. Zoey enjoys spending time outside during the day, and has been completely safe around our chickens. She is currently in a foster home with no livestock, but she gets along well with the other dogs in the home, including another female Great Pyrenees and a few medium-size female mix breed dogs. She is also fine with the cats in the home, which include both tame and feral cats. Zoey is very shy on meeting new people, but with the people in each of the foster homes where she has lived, Zoey has warmed up to her family and seems to enjoy affection, especially tummy rubs.  We should note that the family who adopted one of Zoey's puppies did a Wisdom Panel DNA test which showed the puppy's mom to be 100% Great Pyrenees. We know some people are skeptical about the accuracy of doggy DNA tests, but based on Zoey's looks and temperament, we think it's reasonable to believe this test could be accurate and she could be all Pyr. If Zoey sounds like the right match for your family, please submit your application today. Click here!

Great Pyrenees

Male, Adult
Whitewright, TX
Size

Details
Good with kids, Good with dogs, House-trained, Spayed or Neutered,
Story
You can fill out an adoption application online on our official website.Vader was one of several big white dogs who were hanging around a farm/ranch property in rural Texas, not far from Bluebonnet's home base. There was a dead cow carcass on the property, and the dogs were feeding on that. Passersby took photos and posted on Facebook, asking for help. One intrepid rescuer went out to the site and located the property owners, who said that some of the dogs were theirs, but claimed not to know the others. The rescuer picked up two of the dogs, one of whom seemed really sick. She took the dogs to the local shelter, but she and the staff agreed that the one dog probably needed to see a veterinarian right away, and there wouldn't be one at the shelter until the next day. So she left the healthy dog at the shelter, and took the sick dog to an emergency vet. She named that dog Vader, and made multiple posts looking for help. Rescues all over Texas are filled to the brim, and that is certainly true of Bluebonnet. But we knew that we had the resources to help Vader, even though we already had more dogs than we have foster homes. Vader went into boarding with one of our veterinarians, so he could continue to get the care that was started at the emergency clinic.  After a couple of weeks, he was healthy enough to come to Windsong Ranch. We introduced Vader to our goats, and he is not completely reliable. When he is under the supervision of an experienced LGD, he behaves. But if he's on his own, he tries to play with the goats. He doesn't seem to be trying to harm them, but he's a big dog and his play is too rough for our Nigerian Dwarf goats. So we have moved him into the house, and he seems very happy to be a couch potato. He does still want to go out to the fence line and bark in response to the coyotes who howl in the distance, so he definitely has many of the typical Great Pyrenees guardian instincts. Vader has been going into our chicken yard on a regular basis, and he has been completely safe with our chickens. Keep in mind, though, that we don't leave any dogs with our chickens unsupervised, and we would never place Vader into a home with people who would do that to him. Maybe he would be OK with chickens unsupervised, but he definitely prefers the company of people, so we're pretty sure he would be unhappy if you left him in your yard unattended. Vader gets along well with other dogs, and he has been good with all the people he has met, from children to adults. He has been very patient with our puppy foster Shyla, and basically ignores our little Yorkie.  Vader has been neutered, vaccinated, tested negative for heartworms, and is ready to find his new family.  Submit your application to adopt Vader today!  Visit this organization's web site to see any additional information available about this pet.July 2, 2024, 7:12 pm
