Welcome to Bluebonnet Animal Rescue Network!
If you're looking for an awesome dog, we are here to help! We will help you choose an animal that will be the perfect match for your family. Adoption is a commitment for the life of the animal, and we take that seriously. We expect our adopters to do the same. It's hard knowing what to do when you're about to adopt, but we make this process easier when you adopt with us. Our experienced volunteers will go over every possible question or concern you and your family might have about bringing a new member into your lives.
We are not breed-specific, but our experience and expertise is limited to a few breeds who have a centuries-long history of living and working on farms and ranches, in fields and mountains. We rescue many Great Pyrenees, Anatolian Shepherds, and mixes of these with other breeds. We have rescued a few Australian Shepherds, and are open to rescuing any dog that we think might be a good addition to life on a farm, ranch, or homestead. We test our foster dogs with our livestock (goats, sheep, donkeys, chickens, and guineas), and place them in homes according to the things we learn about each dog through our testing. We work hard to evaluate a dog's temperament and behavior, and try to discern the kind of life each dog would prefer, whether that's living in the house as a pampered pet, in the pasture as a noble working dog, or some combination.
We are happy to answer any questions that you may have about our rescue, our animals, or our adoption process. It's not unusual for us to have additional dogs (and occasionally cats) who are not listed here due to timing, so even if you don't see a dog on this list, please contact us and tell us what you're looking for. We'll do our best to match you with the dog who is just right for your family! Please see our Contact Us page for more information on the best ways to contact us.
See all the Dogs!
