Snuggles available take your pick, Baby Girl or Ma’am?
You can only pick one...
Sweet dreams everyone 😴🌝 ... See MoreSee Less
The heck with your "conditions", I'm sneaking right in between those girls and we're making a cuddle sandwich. :)
Wait, what do you mean, we have to pick one! You snuggle with a gazillion every night.
Well Baby Girl is super adorable and very tempting, but my <3 belongs to that sweet, innocent angel Ed 🤣💖😍😊 Edited to add: I've found the loophole: just smoosh down right next to Ed, and voila! who is right there on the other side? Baby Girl. Problem solved.
Right smack in the middle, that way I only picked one on the right side and one on the left side, problem solved.
I'll take the one dreaming of harassing bowls, buckets, and such things.
I love me some ma’am!!!! But alas I have 3 crazy English to snuggle everyday... I’m going for baby girl! I am in love with her breed and will take any chance to snuggle that! Plus she sleeps ala-dead cockaroach like my sweet old man Chewbacca Bear!!! ❤️💙
I'll sit in between them both
Baby Girl! I'm afraid Ma'am might mistake me for a bucket in her sleep and beat me up!
Why only one?!? I gotta go with Baby Girl tonight though.
So hard! I love bulldog snuggles and Ed reminds me of my first bulldog but baby girl and that smoosh face. I would want to give her kisses
Awww....can't pick just one. These aren't Lays Potato Chips.....I need both Snuggle Bunnies ❤❤❤
I spy a spot right in the middle of those two gorgeous girls and I call “dibs” on it❣️❤️🐾
I get to snuggle with a tiny bulldog here every night, and I adore Ed but I love red bears since I don’t have one. I would say Baby Girl is irresistible.
I just think about rolling over half asleep and encountering those upside down jowls.
Just like Frito Lay, can't pick just one!
Only one? Gee, you sure make it hard to decide! How about Baby Girl for the first hour, then Ma'am!
Since I’m odd too I’ll hang and snuggle with Ma’am! 😂🗑
They are both adorable but I think I would pick baby girl… A little closer to the size I’m used to with my giant boxer boy. ❤️. Plus it looks like she needs a chest/tummy rub…
I want to snuggle both! Love 'Ma'am' to pieces however!
Love them both but it's gonna have to be ma'am.
Awwww I want to be right in the middle❤️❤️
I just love that Baby Girl is so comfortable sleeping on her back. And I bet Ma'am is snoring up a storm. They are both snuggable love bugs.
I'll take one of each.They sure are ready for that bed. Good night everyone. Pleasant dreams.
Hold on there-there’s room right in the middle
Not fair, but I have to go with Ma'am!! I love her so much!!

Make no mistake, that eye speaks loud enough for both of them!! #badasspiratequeen ❣
I was on a bit of a Hiatus for a while, could somebody tell me what happened to the Queen's eye??
You had better hurry ... the ticket book is next ‼️‼️
Stink eye for Momma
She has her eye on you Mama!
Just love this picture. She still hits me in the feels with that beautiful face though. I know it seems silly to most since I have never even met her. But I still want to just hug you both. So glad she’s doing so well. “I’m not crying...you’re crying”! ❤️😊 Love you Sweet Bea Bea...
The royal eyeball says... you better get to crack a lackin on that supper, ma'am!
That little dot on her head is now her satellite beacon...makes “laser eye” work fabulously...
I think she's hungry lol
You tell them Bea. I can hear your tummy growling up here in Portland, Oregon.
♥️ Queen Bee!
Had a rough day with not great news and first thing I saw was Queen Bea, my smile is back! I love that baby!
Beautiful! I want to kiss her face right off!
Are you speaking for your people, Queen Bea? Love you!
Tell her Bea! ❤
Her eye looks great. Or where it was looks good. Beautiful as always 💕
You tell ‘em, Bea!
You are getting the look! Chop, chop now!!!
Beautiful little stink eye :)
Stink and those ears!!!
That one stink eye is enough!🐶

We had been aware of this big boy in a shelter in Weatherford for about 2 weeks now. We had started to go to work on, he was a stray, and was on stray hold. After the hold was up he was adopted so we moved away from him needing help.
While I was out of town we learned that he had been brought back to the shelter by his adopter. The story was he was adopted by a woman in her 20's and she lived in a house with a lot of people and a lot of kids and he was overwhelmed and he growled at an 8 year old in the home.
We of course need to be very cautious when accepting a dog into our rescue especially a huge Mastiff but we also have to take all information and sort out who the dog is and what he's responding too.
Ricky went and picked him up from the shelter on Friday while I was out of town and we set him up in isolation while Travis introduced himself and began to figure out who he was. He was very frightened of Travis and would run from him with his tail tucked, but he loved our employee Amber. It seemed very clear that men made him pretty nervous and he was going to need to get some help with that.
I came back yesterday morning and met him first thing in the morning, I opened up his door and he briefly growled at me, I ignored him and told him to come on and lets go outside in a very happy perky voice. I turned my back to him and I felt him come up behind me to smell me and I just stood still for him. I put my hand behind me and I felt his big soft velvet lips touch my hand and I gave them a little wiggle and I could see his shadow behind me with a little nervous tail wag.
I then turned around and told him what a good boy he was and he politely trotted out to the yard to go potty and get a drink of water. He went off to see Dr. D very shortly after that, transported by Cassandra and the staff at Dr. D's are all female and he had no issues. Linda drove him back to the Ranch just before closing and he was a big love bug for her as well. Jessica and I spent some time with him out in the yard and he was calm and ate his dinner, got a drink and went potty before going to bed for the night.
Today was the big day with Travis going to push the envelope with him and allow the other dogs at the Ranch to help him learn that men aren't bad and let them help socialize him. You see dogs learn social skills from other dogs and when you have a dog who is afraid of humans, whether it's men or women, or both the fastest way to rehab a dog like that is to have other dogs who aren't afraid of people teach them that its okay. They lead by example if you will and the more dogs that are "balanced" and unafraid the better off they are and the faster they learn.
This morning while Travis was working he brought him out and let him feel the pack, and in just a short period of time he was wagging his tail and following their lead. Travis cemented the deal by bringing in a little bit of pizza. This boy loves to eat and after just a little while he was eating out of Travis hand. He loves the other dogs and is now main streamed and doing just fine. It turns out his little growl for the child and for me when he met me for the first time was just because he was frightened. He's a very sensitive boy and will be just fine.
He's been neutered, he has a skin infection and an ear infection, he will need a dental and some more time at the Ranch to help him become the best he can be and that's just exactly what he will get.
Allow me to introduce to you and welcome to Dog Ranch Rescue big boy Bronx... ... See MoreSee Less
Just rescued a full blood boxer was given to a family with kids he growled at one of the kids so I took him. He’s been in and out of shelters but come to find out when I got his teeth cleaned they x-ray his hips and one was out of line. He has been to the dog chiropractor hip put back in line. He was put on a anti-inflammatory and is so happy now! A different dog!
I love reading your posts about how you introduce new dogs to you, the Ranch, and other people. Understanding the dog's point of view is so huge and I'm so glad you have such a great insight into what's going on in their brains! Welcome, Bronx!
It upsets me that some shelters don’t do an extensive home application for pets. When I adopted my cat, I filled out a form, but they never asked me ANY questions about it. I could have completely lied on that form and they wouldn’t have know bc no one bothered to ask. Luckily, I’m a great cat mom.
Sanford still low growls at every person that comes in and out of the house. It’s out of fear ..... he moves away from them. Welcome to the ranch Bronx... take it easy big boy. It’s gonna be ok!! 🐾❤️🐾
THIS is why I have so much respect for you Eden bunch!!! I call you Ranch Angels for so many reasons. Today is the latest!!! Thank you!!!
If I growl will Travis hand feed me pizza?? We love our Travis—a true dog-whisperer 💜
TRAVIS, THE ANGELS SING EVERY TIME YOU LOVE A DOG..MAYBE I WILL COME BACK AS A BIG RED RANCH BEAR...IT COULD HAPPEN.
Hello Bronx, welcome to the Ranch. You will be just fine and your life will be filled with love from now on. You are so lucky that the Ranch rescued you. I am sure that in not time at all, you will forget how to growl and you will be begging for holdies.
just as the 12 year old shih tzu i took in 2 yrs ago from someone I used to work with. he " snapped " at the child. no way did that ever happen. he is the most gentle submissive dog I have ever owned. and he grieved his family forever. he is 14 now. he will have a home with me for the rest of his life
Oh dear heaven, a house with a lot of people and an 8 yr. old. I always suspect the adults as being too permissive and the young child as not having been taught to love and respect the animals. Bronx as a rescue was frightened and probably was provoked. Growling is good, it means he was trying to communicate a warning and that he didn't just strike out first!
Thank you for saving his life! He would have certainly been eithanized for being "aggressive". Thank you for giving him a second chance at a loving home and a cherished life.
EVERYTIME I READ ABOUT PEOPLE WHO DO NOT HAVE ANY EXPERIENCE WITH DOGS, AND THEY GET A DOG WHO HAS ALREADY BEEN THROUGH A TRAMATIC DISPLACEMENT AND WHO WAS NOT WELL CARED FOR...JUST MAKES ME SO VERY ANGRY. WHAT THE HELL?
What a beautiful BIG boy.....our last dog was a rescue and did not like men. He had been left in a crate on the side of the road.....not much known about him but he was a great dog for about 7 years. He developed an auto immune disease and after trying everything we had to let him go. I watch your FB for all of your new beauties. Maybe one day we will get another.
This kind of post Is exactly what "haters of LSDR" need to read and truly understand how much heart is invested in every dog.
Hello big boy Bronx. Good to see ya getting out and about. You are in the best hands!
Oh my goodness! Aren't you just a big ole lovely boy! I'd love to rub yoor gave and scratch your ears!
So happy for him!! He's gorgeous and will be scooped up by the right family in no time!
Bronx - you are gorgeous! Deep breath and just enjoy your new surroundings
Poor boy, people are such numskulls not knowing about a breed and thinking dumping a dog into a houseful of people is normal...so glad he is with you guys so he can blossom and find the right home.
That is one good looking big red bear...welcome to Heaven on Earth Brox.
Great name and wonderful post. I foster dogs for a rescue and they are mostly American Bulldogs or AB mixes. How could you tell that Bronx was going to be ok with your other dogs? Do you leash him and bring him out?
Awesome breed and awesome dog. We miss our beau.
Welcome to the Ranch, Bronx. You are safe and get ready for a new and wonderful life!! You are already loved by the village. ❤❤❤❤
Look at that face Danielle Hillman isn't he handsome?
My lab is the same way. In the winter when we don't run her as much with the other neighborhood dogs, we have to deal with a little scaredy cat growling from her as the other dogs remind her that everything is ok. Takes a few days, then she's back to normal.

Poor Brooklyn had a hard day yesterday, surgery on her leg to remove the fragment of pellet in her leg, Linda then took her home and she's terrified of the car and absolutely covered herself in drool.
Today is a better day and Linda is updating us on who this sweet girl is:
"My view through my glass desk. Brooklyn is much happier this morning. The photos are deceiving, she is a teeny girl. 27lbs, but needs to gain a few, so she’ll like be in the low 30s. She definitely knows what a house is, and she wants to be in it and she wants to be near people.
If I sit on the floor, she crawls right up into my lap. She is eating and taking her meds like a good girl. I have no doubt she was someone’s dog at some point. I am wondering if she is house trained, because so far she’s been good, but I don’t want to jinx it.... More to come on this sweet girl.." ... See MoreSee Less
She is a pretty girl.
She is such a pretty girl. I wonder if she was a pet and got out then got lost? She is going to find her forever home, it sounds like she is a very sweet girl. I wish that we were in a position to adopt her, but it's not possible. So I will instead be happy when she finally finds her home because we know it will be a wonderful place for her.
You are in good hands now, Brooklyn. Each day will get better. You are such a sweetie.
I can hardly WAIT for the transformation of this precious girl!
A wonderful soul is shining out from those eyes!
Can't wait until she joins the pack. Poor girl!
She looks so Vizsla to me! Wish I could bring her to Wisconsin 🖤
She is darling 🙏💜💜🙏🙏
We love you Brooklyn. Hang in there!!
Prayers for you, dear Brooklyn!
Beautiful little girl❤️
Sweet baby girl!
God love it!!!

Oh Jean, I know you miss your lunch time but this just won’t do. No more counter surfing for you, thank god this bag was empty because I shutter to think about the aftermath..🤪😚 ... See MoreSee Less
Cheetos are my weenies weakness. His 12 lb self could tear up some cheese puffs
Flaming hot ☄️💥🔥 💩!
The boys made me do it...they said..you go check...we'll be outside!! LOL...
Just helping clean up around here.
is THAT miss jean grey??!!
SHE IS JUST SO HAPPY TO BE IN A PLACE WITH PLENTIFUL FOOD. SHE IS JUST TRYING TO HIDE AND STORE IT SO SHE WON'T EVER BE HUNGREY AGAIN.
Your tummy has been through WWWAAAAAYYYYY too much to be eating flaming hot anything Miss Jean!!! Just tell that Mama Renee you must be fed or your aunt Cathy will come kidnap you and give you all the appropriate snackys you want!
Look the other way lady
....ok, no Flaming Hot stuff...how’s about some nachos with cheese hold the jalapeños ⁉️⁉️
Plus, there have been stories about dogs getting their heads stuck in empty chip bags, and can't get themselves out. They can easily suffocate. Sometimes I forget to do it, but I try to remember to break out both ends of empty chip bags just in case some animal might find it in a garbage bin or the dump. I've seen videos of all kinds of scavenging critters getting themselves stuck in peanut butter jars, etc., and bags are just as dangerous.
YIPES!!!! Those are the fire HOT HOT ones!!!!
Poor thing she just hasn’t figured it out yet that she will never go hungry ever again!
OH OH OH those are flaming hot... Jean you do not want those!!!! What goes in hot has to come out sometime!!!
She has good taste! I love Munchies!
I love her face when she steals something and clamps her lips around it, she has such a funny, silly expression, of..."I found this unattended , so it must be mine. I know I did nothing wrong."
Oh, sweet Jane Grey. Tell your Mama that if she’ll put a pearl necklace around your beautiful neck you’ll stop your counter grazing!
One time my daughter’s Frenchie went into her brother’s room and got on hosed and ate a big bag of Doritos! She was actually ok! Her two favorite things are pizza and Doritos! Of course now she only gets small bites of those two “foods”! And only once in a while.
She doesn’t like feeling hungry! Those horrible days are behind her but she’s not taking any chances 💕
Is Jean lunch less because of that fat roll on her arm? I feel ya Jean.
Oh gosh lol
I love Jean how she loves life for the first time. Thank you Lone Star Dog Ranch for giving her a new life.
Look at her hair growing back!
She was gonna go hide it for a rainy day.
But she's hoooooongry!
