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 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.  😦

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.

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.

Cowboy says, “Thank You!!”

November 14, 2012

Cowboy says “THANK YOU” to his friends who crossposted, shared, donated & who continue to send well-wishes his way.

Thanks to each of you this sweet boy will get to go in for his surgery Thursday as planned! Yippee!

We will keep you posted on how he does through recover – we know Cowboy has a lot of friends cheering him on!

For now, please continue sending well-wishes for a perfect surgery & easy recovery period.

Help Cowboy!

November 11, 2012

Sweet Cowboy needs your help to get his “cowboy swagger” back!

We heard about Cowboy yesterday, he was in a high-kill shelter in rural Alabama and in desperate need of rescue. Cowboy had a knee injury that was causing him discomfort when he wanted to run and play; we could not bear to let that baby sit in a shelter without trying to get him help.

Thanks to one of our amazing AL rescue volunteers, we were able to spring Cowboy from the shelter bright & early yesterday morning and get him to our vet in Birmingham.

Here’s what we found out: Cowboy is 6-9 months old, heartworm negative (thank goodness!), but was loaded with whipworms, hookworms & roundworms. He has been in some discomfort from a previous trauma to his right rear leg that will require surgery.

By the looks of his x-rays this trauma happened when he was a younger puppy, and caused a medial patellar luxation. The type of trauma is unknown but could have been from anything with force (being hit/kicked, falling to the ground, etc). It was forceful enough to knock his knee out of joint to the point it could not go back into place on its own. The tibia then developed deformed (conformational defect) because of the knee displacement and lack of veterinary attention when this injury first occurred.

Thankfully, there is a surgery that can be done to correct Cowboy’s leg – it will allow him to have full range of motion and to return to normal puppyhood activities after a 6 week recovery period!  The surgery Cowboy will have is called Tibial Crest Transposition.

We have scheduled Cowboy’s surgery for Thursday, November 15th – but we need to raise $938 for his surgery by then (plus an additional $110 to cover his first round of x-rays from yesterday).

The quote from Dr. Murphy can be seen here:

Will you join us in sharing Cowboy’s story? In crossposting for help? Or in considering a small donation to offset the cost of Cowboy’s surgery? Every single dollar makes a difference!

As an extra incentive, everyone who donates $25 or more will receive one of our new Bonnie Blue Rescue bumper stickers as a “thank you” for your generous donation!

Donations can be made online via ChipIn by clicking the link here: http://bonniebluerescue.chipin.com/cowboys-leg-surgery OR by snail mail – email us at bonniebluerescue@gmail.com for our mailing address!

Thank you, thank you for your continued support of Bonnie Blue Rescue!

Gumbo

October 9, 2012

Cute Gumbo had a forever family lined up — and they changed their minds. Bummer!

But their loss is another family’s gain!


But the good news is that this sweet, amazing boy is still available — we know that there is a special family looking for him!


Gumbo is 12 lbs of pure love. His momma topped out around 25 lbs when full grown, so we do not expect Gumbo to be a large guy at all.

Gumbo loves to snuggle, snooze & play with his foster sister Sadie (who happens to be about 4 times bigger than Gumbo — but he’s not shy!)

Any room in your heart and home for this sweetie?

Foster Homes Needed!

October 4, 2012

FOSTER HOMES NEEDED

These sweeties are heading north to rescue next weekend & need foster families!

Please email us at bonniebluerescue@gmail.com if you are interested in fostering {or adopting} one of these sweeties!

What does fostering entail? Fostering means that you bring a rescued pup into your home and love them like your own until their forever families come along. Most fosters are short-term foster commitments (typically 4 weeks or less).

What is provided? Bonnie Blue Rescue provides crate, toys, chewies, collar, leash, harness, ID, tag, and covers all pre-approved medical bills/vetting, heartworm and flea/tick preventative. We just ask that our fosters provide food & love {and if needed, we can even cover the food!}

Where do I have to live to foster? Anywhere! We currently have fosters in Louisiana, Alabama, Georgia, Tennessee, Virginia, Florida, North Carolina, Washington, DC, Maryland, Pennsylvania, Connecticut & Maine!
