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.


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.

Disclaimer: There is an awful lot of cuteness in this blog post. Consider yourself warned!

Huge thanks to Lara at for this adorable pictures of Momma Blue & the Crayola Pups! If you live in CT (or nearby) – look Lara up & consider having her come and do portraits of your pups!

Thought it was time that we shared some happy, happy, happy, happy news with you all!

As of July 1st, intake will officially reopen at Bonnie Blue Rescue.

We could not have bounced back from our onslaught of sick pups without each one of you sharing our updates, praying for our pups, sending positive vibes & donations our way. We are beyond thankful for the outpouring of support that we’ve received over the last month.

From the bottom of our hearts, thank you for helping us keep on keeping on.

We appreciate each of you more than you know & look forward to many more years of saving pups together.

Happy Monday & an Amber update!!

June 25, 2012

Just a quick update to say that Miss Amber continues to do awesome in foster care!

She is almost housebroken and is working on learning all about crate training & good puppy manners.

Amber is still handling her heart meds well and we will try weaning her off of them in a few weeks.

She will have an updated EKG done then and provided all goes well, she will then be able to journey to her forever home (so forever family — hurry up & come find your girl!)

Cute video of the little miss playing here:

Once again, a huge thank you to each of you who donated, crossposted, shared, prayed for & send good vibes for our sweet Precious Gems pups.

We are so, so thankful to be able to share HAPPY updates these days!

Happy Monday!

What a weekend!
