Posted Breed: Great Pyrenees / Golden Retriever / Mixed (long coat). Adoption Fee: $150. Hello Gorgeous! We believe Daisy is a Great Pyrenees/Golden Retriever, with the size (100+ lbs) and guardian instincts of a Pyrenees. She has very good manners in the house, but prefers a quiet home without too many visitors. She enjoys daily walks and generally does well meeting most dogs, and she LOVES puppies. Daisy is not always happy about meeting new people -- she isn't aggressive, but she doesn't trust easily. She has a scary bark and uses it to keep people from encroaching on her personal space. She tends to accept people more easily if they have a dog, and the second time she sees them, she may basically ignore them. People who love dogs and think that most dogs love them back are often surprised that Daisy won't let them pet her. But she is a one-person dog. Once you earn her trust, she rewards you with complete devotion, and will be very affectionate with you. Daisy currently lives in a foster home with several dogs, some her own size and some much smaller. She gets along with all of them, though will often find a quiet spot away from the others to take her nap. She previously lived in a foster home with a small dog and a senior cat, and everyone got along just fine. If you live a nice quiet life and would give to Daisy the same love and devotion she will give to you, Daisy just may be the dog for you!

If you’re looking to adopt a dog and don’t know where to start, puppyfinder.com is an excellent source for information about adopting a dog and will connect you with hundreds of shelters across the US that have adoptable puppies and older dogs waiting for forever homes.
  1. Do your research – find out what types of dogs would be a good fit for your lifestyle and the activity level of your family. Also keep in mind the grooming needs of certain breeds that might require frequent maintenance.
  2. Decide what you can handle – before you get sucked in by all the adorable puppy eyes you’re about to see, think long and hard about the appropriate age dog for your family or if you are capable of caring for a special needs dog. Puppies are a lot of work, if you don’t have time for potty training and obedience classes you’ll want to consider an older dog. There are plenty of middle aged, vibrant dogs up for adoption as well as many senior dogs that would be a great fit for a family looking for a more subdued dog with lots of love to give.
  3. Learn about the shelters and their adoption policies – It might be easier to start looking at shelters within a certain radius of home but don’t be afraid to venture out to other states as well. Many states have larger populations of adoptable dogs and their shelters are willing to transport pets to suitable adopting families. Some shelters might have requirements for a home visit, a fenced yard or require you to visit the pet multiple times before you commit to adopting. Understand that the shelters are doing their best to place the pets in suitable homes and these requirements are in the best interest of both you and the pet.
  4. Start looking… Once you know what you’re looking for and what to expect you can start your search through thousands of adoptable dogs. PuppyFinder allows you to search by age, breed, location and gender.
  5. Meet in person. Whenever possible it is best to meet the animal in person before agreeing to bring them into your life. Even though photos and descriptions can tell you a bit about a dog, you can’t get a true feeling for the animal until you are able to interact with them and make sure they are a good fit for your entire family, including other pets.

      Lindsey

      rescue
      Breed: Border Collie-Great Pyrenees Mix
      Sex: Female Female
      Age: Young
      Location: USA
      Posted Breed: Great Pyrenees / Border Collie / Mixed (medium coat). Adoption Fee: $150. Lindsey was pregnant when she was picked up by animal control in a small East Texas town. She delivered 10 pups in the shelter, but one did not survive. It's really a testament to the care that shelter staff and volunteers provided that they lost only one, as a shelter is no place for newborn puppies. The shelter posted this precious family, looking for a rescue to take them. Great Pyrenees rescues across Texas turned them down because they are obviously mixes, and the rescues were already jam-packed with dogs and pups who looked more like Pyrs. Shelter staff had no choice but to add Lindsey and all her puppies to their list for euthanasia, which would have been a sad day for everyone. Thankfully, one of our foster moms volunteered to foster the whole family, and we were happy to take them into Bluebonnet Animal Rescue. We love our Great Pyrs, but we are not limited to just one breed, so it didn't matter to us that they are mixes. We think Lindsey is a Great Pyrenees/Border Collie mix. She's friendly and playful, and loves people. Lindsey is about 2 years old, is spayed, vaccinated, and microchipped.

      Breed: Anatolian Shepherd-Great Pyrenees Mix
      Sex: Male Male
      Age: Young
      Location: USA
      Posted Breed: Anatolian Shepherd / Great Pyrenees / Mixed (short coat). Adoption Fee: $200. Van Dyke is a handsome boy with the coloring of a Starbucks Frappucino, and when he splashes through the mud (which he does as often as possible!) he looks like the barista added some chocolate chips to make him even more appealing. Van Dyke can usually be found right in the middle of any fun that's going on, whether that's chasing a ball or splashing in the little blue wading pool. He's happy to get his share of attention from his humans, but he's not terribly demanding. Between his good looks and his easy-going personality, you're sure to become just as addicted to Van Dyke as to your morning cuppa java. Van Dyke and his siblings were born on 4/30/2014 at Windsong Ranch, the home of Bluebonnet Animal Rescue. Mom Ginger was surrendered to us by a goat rancher who let her get pregnant then didn't want to deal with the results. He threatened to shoot her, figuring that one bullet would take care of Ginger AND all her puppies. Thankfully, the rancher's daughter convinced him to surrender the VERY pregnant dog to rescue. We picked her up on Saturday, and on Wednesday, Ginger delivered a BIG litter of puppies. We were told that mom Ginger is half Great Pyrenees, and we guess that Van Dyke's dad must be Anatolian Shepherd. Van Dyke has spent most of his time in our pasture with the other livestock guardian dogs, but also has spent time in the house. He is safe with livestock and with chickens. Van Dyke is on heartworm prevention, has been neutered and microchipped, and is ready to join your family today!

      rescue
      Breed: Great Pyrenees
      Sex: Male Male
      Age: Adult
      Location: USA
      Posted Breed: Great Pyrenees (long coat). Adoption Fee: $200. Albus is a handsome Great Pyrenees male who was picked up as a stray by some nice people who took him into their home. Albus is a great dog -- he is good with other dogs, cats, and children. At a recent adoption event, he was friendly with everyone and would let anyone come up and pet and love on him. He is good on a leash, sits on command, and doesn't bark much (except in public at other dogs he does not know). Albus is fully housetrained, is gentle, calm, and easygoing. BUT, Albus has one major issue that MUST be considered by any potential adopter. He has major separation anxiety, and also has anxiety during storms (regardless of whether WE hear thunder, rainstorms upset Albus). Fireworks and gunfire terrify him. Albus must be in a home where one of his humans is home most of the time and where he has at least one other Great Pyrenees (preferably one as large as he is) to keep him company. His new home MUST have a secure 6' (or taller) fence, preferably wrought iron or chain link so he has a view of the world around him. As we said, Albus is a truly wonderful dog, and in the right setting (like his current foster home at Windsong Ranch), Albus is a very easy dog to manage. If you have another big Pyr and are retired or work from home, and if you have a nice big yard with great fencing, please consider Albus as your new companion. He is worth the extra attention he needs during times of stress.

      Breed: Anatolian Shepherd-Great Pyrenees Mix
      Sex: Male Male
      Age: Adult
      Location: USA
      Posted Breed: Great Pyrenees / Anatolian Shepherd / Mixed (long coat). Adoption Fee: $250. Gabriel is a stunningly handsome male with one blue eye and one brown eye. He came from an extreme hoarding case in Arizona where the adult dogs had been left in the field and not socialized with people. Gabriel was the alpha male of the group. All of these dogs were fearful of people in the beginning, and Gabriel had to be tranquilized just to be brought in to the shelter. He's still not comfortable on a leash, but at least he DOES walk now rather than fight it. He wags his tail and does the puppy play-bow, so we know he WANTS to trust us. It's just that he hasn't had much socialization in the past. Gabriel may be slow to trust new people, but he eventually does - it just takes patience. We will be working with these dogs as long as it takes to teach them that humans can be trusted, and that they can continue to live and work in the field but at the same time, they will be fed and loved and given proper veterinary care and will be members of our family. Gabriel so far has proven safe with our livestock and is a fierce guardian. He can be aggressive with people that he does not know, so his adopter will need to be a strong leader and committed to taking the time necessary for Gabriel to grow into a more socialized dog.

      Breed: Anatolian Shepherd-Catahoula Leopard Dog Mix
      Sex: Female Female
      Age: Young
      Location: USA
      Posted Breed: Anatolian Shepherd / Catahoula Leopard Dog / Mixed (short coat). Adoption Fee: $200. Lilah has the serious expression of her mother, whom we believe to be an Anatolian Shepherd, possibly mixed with a Great Pyrenees. Lilah has the coat and coloring of a Catahoula or Red Heeler, so we're guessing her dad must be some kind of Cow Dog. But it's all just speculation on our part, and the only way to know for sure which breeds contribute to her unique good looks would be to do a DNA test. That's not in our budget, but if you would like to DONATE one, we would be glad to have it done and share the results. :) Like most Anatolian Shepherds, Lilah is a bit reserved, loyal to her family and pack, and a bit distrustful of strangers. But when you win her over, her loyalty to YOU will be unmatched. She has been spayed, vaccinated, and microchipped, so she is ready to start protecting your home as soon as you're ready to give her the job. Speaking of jobs, Lilah has proven to be a good guardian for our goats and sheep, and safe with our chickens. She goes into the chicken yard with us every day to check things out. She is still young though, so we would not recommend leaving her around the chickens unsupervised. Lilah's estimated date of birth is mid- to late-December 2014. Lilah has been spayed, vaccinated, and microchipped, and she has been on heartworm prevention and wormer since she was a puppy. She is ready to go to a new home as soon as you're ready to add her to your family.

      Casper

      rescue
      Breed: Great Pyrenees-Siberian Husky Mix
      Sex: Male Male
      Age: Adult
      Location: USA
      Posted Breed: Great Pyrenees / Siberian Husky / Mixed (long coat). Adoption Fee: $150. Well thank HEAVENS Casper didn't get turned into a friendly GHOST when his time ran out at the shelter! Instead, volunteers stepped up to rescue him. One thing we should say right upfront -- we really are just guessing about Casper's breeds. He is very strong, and pulls on the leash in a way that reminds us of a sled dog. His size and white coat make most people think of Great Pyrenees. He looks a lot like another dog we rescued last year, whose parents were known to be a Great Pyrenees and a Siberian Husky. But he also has just the tiniest bit of red/gold on the edges of his semi-prick ears, and that reminds us of one Pyr/Aussie mix we rescued, and one Pyr/Red Heeler mix. His tail is an interesting anomaly too -- it is not full length like a Pyr, not curled the way most sled dog breeds are. It's about half the length of a normal Pyrenees tail; he doesn't seem to be sensitive when we touch his tail, so we think maybe his tail has always been like this, rather than that it was cut short due to an accident or injury. It almost makes us think that maybe he has a naturally bobtailed breed in his family tree -- some Aussies and Heeler are naturally bobtailed and others have docked tails. If you are as curious as we are, maybe your budget would allow you to donate a DNA test so we could find out what contributors there are to Casper's unique good looks. Casper is very friendly with people, and he is very affectionate, leaning into you frequently to encourage you to pet him. He should NOT go to a home with cats, as he will chase them every chance he gets. We think that at some point, he may have been attacked by a big dog, because he seems to get anxious when other big dogs crowd him. He gets along with the other dogs in his foster home just fine, but any time another big dog gets too close, he makes a low growl. We keep a close watch on behavior, and we haven't had any incidents, but the potential is there if the other dog tries to be dominant. Casper enjoys spending time in the yard, but he also has good manners in the house -- no potty accidents, no chewing or other destructive behavior. Although we're still getting to know him, we think that maybe he would be happiest in a home where he is the only pet, or maybe shares his home with a dog who is smaller than he is and who won't invade his personal space. He definitely needs a human family who is strong and can manage him on the leash, because HE is strong and can get excited and pull on the leash very hard. If Casper sounds like the dog of your dreams, submit an application on our website and we'll be glad to schedule a Meet & Greet where you can see for yourself what a sweet, handsome boy he really is.

      Breed: Australian Shepherd-Great Pyrenees Mix
      Sex: Male Male
      Age: Adult
      Location: USA
      Posted Breed: Great Pyrenees / Australian Shepherd / Mixed (long coat). Adoption Fee: $200. Buddy Boy is a v ery sweet young Great Pyrenees mix with an estimated date of birth in the summer of 2014. He was initially fostered on a ranch with dairy cows, goats, sheep, llamas, and chickens, and he got along with all of them. Since moving to Windsong Ranch, Buddy has spent time in our pasture guarding our goats (along with other LGDs for company), and has also spent time in the house. Buddy has good manners in the house, and he definitely likes being close to his human family. We think the ideal home for Buddy will be one where he has a big yard or a small homestead (maybe an acre or two) with another dog for company, and an active adopter who will make Buddy Boy part of the family, including him in all their activities. He especially likes swimming in the pond, so I'm sure he would enjoy going to the lake with you. Sometimes he prefers sleeping in the garage or yard, and as long as you have secure fencing and good shelter, that's OK by us. If you think that you have the perfect home for Buddy Boy, submit an application on our website.

      Breed: Borzoi-Irish Setter Mix
      Sex: Male Male
      Age: Adult
      Location: USA
      Posted Breed: Borzoi / Irish Setter / Mixed (long coat). Adoption Fee: $150. We're not sure how Henry first landed at the shelter, but the folks there listed him as a Border Collie mix. Thanks to that description and his photos, Henry was tagged for rescue by an Aussie rescue group. They were shocked to find he is almost twice as big as the average Aussie. They reached out to us, thinking that maybe Henry is a Great Pyrenees/Aussie mix. Pyrenees would certainly account for his size, but his personality and build are really not very much like a Pyrenees. Henry is very active and playful as most Aussies tend to be, and his beautiful coat looks like his family tree could have an Australian Shepherd somewhere down the line. But his high-strung nature, his sight-hound build, and his large size made us choose other breeds for Henry's listing here. Truly, it's almost impossible to know what kind of dog breeds might be in his DNA, unless we do a test, and that's just not in our budget. But if you are curious and would like to donate a DNA test, we'll be glad to submit the sample! Henry is house-trained and crate-trained and has been through basic obedience training, but he gets so excited that he sometimes has a hard time remembering NOT to pull on the leash. But with a strong leader, he performs well, and can always be counted on to sit before meals and for treats. Henry has an estimated birthday in September 2012, so we can't blame his excitability on being a puppy. In other words, his high-strung nature may be traits of the breeds that make up his DNA, so don't adopt him expecting him to change as he matures. He might, but he might not. Henry will do best with an active family who will commit to take him on daily walks to help use up some of his energy. And we think maybe a home with adults only, or children over 12 might be best, because in his excitement, we wouldn't be surprised to see Henry knock a child down without meaning any harm. We would love to introduce you to this big lovable goofball of a dog. Henry is sweet and affectionate and playful and wants to have a family of his own who will give him the love, attention, and exercise he needs.

      Breed: Great Pyrenees
      Sex: Female Female
      Age: Adult
      Location: USA
      Posted Breed: Great Pyrenees (long coat). Adoption Fee: $200. Emmy Lou has to be one of the prettiest Pyrs we have seen in a long time. It's no surprise that she had the misfortune of being picked by a backyard breeder and was forced to produce one litter after another for the first few years of her life. After 5 litters, the guy decided he needed "new blood" in his line and dumped Emmy at the closest shelter. When we picked her up and brought her home, we had to literally drag her in the house -- it was snowing that day, so of course we wanted her to be in the house with us, but Emmy had never been inside a house in her life. She most likely was punished at some point in her life for trying to enter the house, as she was VERY afraid to cross the threshold. It took her a few weeks to understand that not only was she ALLOWED in the house, she was actually WELCOME and WANTED in the house. It has taken Emmy Lou many months to get accustomed to "the good life" she's living in her foster home -- plenty of food and treats, comfy places to sleep, a big yard for enjoying good weather, and a pasture full of livestock who make the best poo for rolling around in. ♥ Emmy Lou gets along just fine with all the dogs in her foster home, but we believe she wold be happiest in a home where either she's the only dog, or where there might be only one other dog, so she can continue to get the attention she has learned to love. She is safe with livestock, including chickens, so she could be a good addition to a farm or small homestead, but she is NOT a livestock guardian. She is a companion dog -- a pet who will enrich your life with her love and devotion, who will probably guard YOU and your family, but who really doesn't want to spend the rest of her life in the pasture. Emmy Lou is slow to adapt to change, and her adopter will need to be someone who is committed to taking the time necessary for her to become accustomed to new surroundings.

      Breed: Blue Lacy-Unknown Mix
      Sex: Male Male
      Age: Young
      Location: USA
      Posted Breed: Entlebucher / Blue Lacy / Mixed (short coat). Adoption Fee: $200. Chico joined our rescue by walking in between the pickets of our wrought iron fence and making himself at home. I guess he saw all the dogs in our yard and thought -- "This looks like a dog-friendly place -- I think I'll stay!" Once we had fed him enough that he could no longer fit between the fence-pickets, then we figured he was healthy enough to be neutered. We don't know anything about his history, but apparently he has been mistreated by a man at some point in his past because Chico is a bit slow to warm up to most men. But once he decides you're OK, he is completely devoted and eager to please. He's a very handsome boy with a sleek tri-color coat, but we really have no idea what combination of breeds he might be. We've made our best guess based on photos and breed standards we've read for dozens of dogs, coupled with the likelihood of those breeds actually being found in our area. In spite of the name "Blue Lacy", there is a tri-color Texas Lacy, so that's one possibility. Chico has an unusual bark that doesn't really sound like a bark, so that's why we included Basenji as one of his probable breeds. His coat looks a lot like a Beagle, but that's the only thing about him that looks Beagle. He also looks a lot like a cross between an Appenzeller or Entlebucher Sennenhund.and a Danish Swedish Farm Dog, but seriously, how likely are any of those breeds to be found as strays here in Texas? Plus, none of those breeds are on the list that we get to choose from on our adoption site. One of our rescue friends calls dogs like this "Texas Field Dogs" because there could have been a dozen different breeds contributing to their DNA. No matter his pedigree (or lack thereof), Chico is a sweet, wonderful boy who deserves an equally wonderful home. Chico has proven to be safe around our chickens, and he is a good watch dog. He would do well in a home where he can come and go between inside the house or outside in our fenced yard. He gets along well with dogs of all sizes, and loves attention from his humans without being needy or demanding.
