Panda Pup

January 31, 2013

Panda pup says hi!

This cutie has looks and personality…all he needs now is a loving forever home!!

Panda sit

Panda was brought into a high kill pound in Louisiana as a stray.  No owners came to claim him and his time soon ran out at the busy shelter.  Thankfully a LA group that works with Bonnie Blue Rescue was able to rescue Panda and he is now safe and thriving in foster care.

Panda sit2

Panda is approximately 1 year old and fully grown at 40#.
We think he is a border collie mix – he is uber smart and willing to please.
Panda silly
Panda is nervous of some men at first but warms up to them if they go slow with introductions and let him know they are one of the good guys.
We don’t think little Panda was treated very kindly in his past but his foster mom is working extra hard to show him that his future brings good things!

Panda foster

Panda is good with kids, cats and other dogs.
He is a medium energy dog and loves going for walks.  He also enjoys cars rides and cuddling!
Panda dog bed
Panda is quickly learning about potty training and is doing well.  We expect a bright future for handsome Panda and would love for him to start 2013 off with his forever family…he certainly deserves it!

Noel

Meet miss Noel!

This pretty, young Lab girl was brought into a Louisiana shelter as a stray.  After no owner claimed her during her 7 day stray hold she found herself on the euthanasia list for no reason other than being Black Lab in a shelter with an abundance of Labs.  😦

72Red Noel OPAS

Lucky for Noel, she was rescued by a Louisiana group that partners with Bonnie Blue Rescue to find amazing northern homes for their special LA pups.

Noel is a star in foster care and her foster mom reports that she gets along so well with the family’s other lab. They cuddle and lick each other and play! Noel is such a little sweetheart.

Noel is good with adults, kids and other dogs.  She has not been tested with cats (but we can arrange that, if needed!).  Noel is learning her manners and is doing well with potty training, crate training and walking on leash.
Noel is approximately 11 months old and 44#.

She is spayed, microchipped, current on vaccinations, heartworm negative and current on prevention.  Noel would love nothing more than to be in a loving, forever home by Valentine’s Day!

Meet Miss Carbon!

January 30, 2013

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.

carbon2

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.

carbon5

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!

carbon1

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.

What a sad day at Bonnie Blue Rescue.

Our sweet baby Katie crossed over Rainbow Bridge this morning at the emergency vet. Katie had a 6 inch rectal prolapse due to straining from her high worm load. Katie’s death would have been completely preventable if her former owners had bothered to worm her at any point during the last 8 weeks before they dumped her at the shelter to die; unfortunately the deworming, fluids, metronidazole and veterinary treatment as soon as she was rescued this week was too late.

The 6 inches of the rectal prolapse included the colon and sphincter. The ER vet did not think that Katie would have had control over her bowels even if she could have survived the surgery and infection. The vet had never seen a rectal prolapse this bad in a puppy before; her recommendation was to have Katie humanely euthanized.

Our hearts are broken for this little baby, but we are so thankful that she got to spend a few days in a foster home knowing love and being adored.

Please join us in sending good vibes and prayers for her foster family who have very heavy hearts today.

Rest in peace, sweet girl.

Cowboy Update — Out of Surgery!

November 15, 2012

A quick update from Cowboy’s foster momma:

Cowboy is out of surgery & he did well. His anatomy once getting in there was a little more oddly shaped than how it appeared on xray. Dr. Murphy had to create a new groove in the femur where the patella sits in order to line the quadraceps muscle with the tibial crest. We are hoping for good function and we will be able to determine more of the function of his leg throughout the recovery process. We do expect Cowboy to have a full recovery and will be able to enjoy regular activities, we just do not know at this point if he will have a limp/altered gait.

Cowboy will spend a few days at the vet clinic being monitored closely post-surgery but should be able to go back home with his foster family this weekend!

Cowboy video here (watch for his tail wag!): http://youtu.be/VUTiyQFpZlU

One more GIANT thank you to each of you who helped us get sweet Cowboy to and through surgery today. We are so incredibly appreciative of all that you do to support our rescue babies!

Short Term Foster Needed — Commerce, GA Area!

November 14, 2012
SHORT TERM FOSTER NEEDED – COMMERCE, GA AREA
Photo: SHORT TERM FOSTER NEEDED - COMMERCE, GA area (3 weeks)  Do we have any rescue friends in/around Commerce, GA area who would be willing to short-term foster (3 weeks) two darling 6-week old catahoula leopard babies for us? They were on their way to be surrendered to the shelter but a local rescuer intervened & took the two babies home with her. Their dad was euthanized immediately at the shelter (owner surrender in a crowded rural shelter close to the holidays - no chance of making it out alive :/) & we don't know what happened to their mom; but what we do know is that these two babies can have a wonderful life if we can get them into our Bonnie Blue Rescue foster care program.
