Do you remember cute-as-a-button Donovan? He is a Plott Hound/Lab mix pup. He was the spunky little puppy that was found St. Patrick’s Day 2012 at only 4-5 weeks of age snuggled up to his momma who had been struck and killed by a car. This little guy is a survivor!
Bonnie Blue Rescue brought this little guy into the rescue and found him a wonderful home in May of 2012 in Connecticut after a couple months in foster care.
His new family named him Henry and we thought he had found his happily ever after.
Through no fault of his own, Henry, has found himself back with Bonnie Blue Rescue. He needs a new, loving home to call his own. He is a high energy, but incredibly loving teenager. Henry needs an active family that can set consistent boundaries as he is a punk (but a cute punk!) that tries to push the rules to get his way. With some continuous reinforcement he is going to be a great dog! He just needs someone that can give him all the love he so clearly deserves.
Zinnia was alone, scared and pregnant at a high kill shelter in West Virginia. Thanks to a lot of help from a lot of volunteers she made it safely to CT! In CT she has been safely tucked away in a guest bedroom at her foster mom’s house and there she gave birth to her Garden
Puppy Sponsors needed!!
To help our rescue offset some of the costs associated with the vetting and care of a litter we are looking for puppy sponsors! There are two different sponsorship options available.
Full Sponsorship: Full sponsorship is $100 per puppy. Sponsors will get to name their pup (please choose a name that is “something you would find in Zinnia’s Garden”). You will receive a minimum of 3 updates while your sponsored pup is in foster care and will receive a happily-ever-after photo once your sponsored puppy is adopted and a Bonnie Blue Rescue bumper sticker!
Partial Sponsorship: Partial sponsorship is $25 per pup. These sponsors will receive one update while their sponsor pup is in foster care and will receive a happily-ever-after photo once their sponsor pup is adopted!
*** Please not there is the option for one full sponsorship & two partial sponsorship’s per pup!***************

Say hello to the adorable (and famous) Carbon!
Carbon & her sister Cinder were dumped at a high kill shelter in Louisiana and scheduled for euthanasia after being there less than 24hrs due to overcrowding. Thankfully, Carbon (& Cinder) caught the eye of the PAWS Rescue Coordinator and were some of the luck one’s that day. Carbon is now thriving in foster care.
Carbon is a happy, healthy, well adjusted little Lab mix!! Thanks to a great partnership between PAWS of NE LA and Bonnie Blue Rescue, Carbon is now looking for a loving forever home.
We have no idea what kind of mix Carbon is but we think Labrador for sure. She is a petite pup though so may not grow to full Lab size…we expect her to mature to be a medium sized dog at least.
She has a glossy black coat and beautiful brown eyes. Carbon is approximately 10 weeks old as of January 30th and will be ready to transport home in late February.
Until then her Louisiana foster mom will keep working with her on socialization, potty training, crate training and basic puppy manners. Carbon already knows how to sit and is doing very well with leash training, especially for such a young girl!
While she is eager to please and is doing well with all the training so far, Carbon is a puppy and will have a long way to go so please keep that under consideration. This sweetie needs and deserves a home that will help her grow up to be the best dog she can be!
Carbon is fostered with kids, cats and other dogs and is comfortable in a busy household. This special pup is also a TV star and got to go on a local LA morning show with her foster mom to talk about an upcoming Mardi Gras Pet Parade.
Here is a video of Carbon’s TV debut… http://www.knoe.com/category/178698/video-landing-page?autoStart=true&topVideoCatNo=default&clipId=8212171.

Miss Truffle is an absolutely AMAZING black lab mix.
She is your typical lab girl – happy go lucky, easy to please, & social with everyone she meets.
Truffle was rescued from a high-kill shelter in rural Louisiana.
She has been looking for her forever family through Bonnie Blue Rescue since OCTOBER! We are floored that this awesome girl hasn’t been scooped up yet.
Truffle would fit into almost any home — she has so much love to give!
Truffle is amazing with kids and other dogs. She is totally housebroken & cratetrained and is an all around awesome girl.
If you are interested in adopting Truffle, just email us at email@example.com.
We will gladly send more information your way.
