As I type this Renee is driving as fast as she can to get Pinkie to the ER after being bitten by a baby copperhead. Pinkie's face is swelling quickly and she could use your good thoughts and prayers. ... See MoreSee Less
My golden retriever pup was bitten on the lip by a copperhead on a Saturday evening with my vet un reachable. I called the hospital ER and was told to give Benadryl. It worked! She had swelling for a few days but ate and drank normally. I hope Pinkie recovers the same.
That would be 101 reasons I hate snakes. Where did that thing pop up?
Oh no! Poor Pinkie! Prayers are being said right now.Please please Dear Lord wrap your loving arms around this precious baby girl and her Momma! Please keep them both safe. Be with the Dr.'s and guide them to the best treatments and solutions for Pinkie. Please Lord, please save her. In Jesus name.... Amen. Please keep us updated. I will be mindful and in prayer for Pinkie and Renee.
baby copperheads are more deadly than big ones. Had couple of boxer girlies got bit and thankfully we were very close to vet and they were treated very quickly. learned to keep benadryl close by. dose immediately with 100 mgm and head to vet.
It is a myth that baby snake deliver more venom in their bite
OH NO!!!!!!! Prayers for Pinkie & Renee & ALL of the LSDR family & village. Lord, please keep that baby safe & her mama too.
Prayers for sweet Pinkie Earline. Dear Lord Jesus please please wrap this precious girl in your healing grace and restore her fully. Lord, this precious baby is so special and needed. Please give her Momma strength at this time. Amen.
Praying for swift and complete healing for Pinkie! I love her so! Father God, I pray for your grace and your mercy and your healing hand today for sweet Pinkie Earline. Guide the doctors and nurses to give her the best care to heal this precious girl quickly! Comfort Renee and help her feel your loving arms around her and Pinkie right now! In the mighty and powerful name of Jesus your son. Amen ❤️🐾💕🙏🏽
Oh no, not Pinkie. Dear Lord please be with the Eden family and their pack. Let this sweet pup get the care she needs and help her to recover quickly. Watch over her family as they travel to the vet. Amen
Sending good vibes our dog was bit by a rattle snake three weeks ago and nearest emergency vet was 1hr away. Fortunately she recovered and is back to her crazy self.
Oh no!!!! Miss Pinkie- may the heavenly Fathers angels be with you! May he guide the hands of your doctors and care team! May he protect Renee as she is driving quickly to get you your medical care!!!!
I had a dog that tangled with one once. It was several hours begore we realized it, when his head suddenly swelled up at the bite site. We got him to the vet and the treatment was actually harder on him than the venom. The vet said that they have strong immune systems naturally when it comes to snakebites. Pinkie is a strong girl, she will be ok. But we're still praying for her.
Oh noooooo! Please update asap. Prayers for little Pinkie! Some may require anti venom to counter act it. I had a beagle get bit and thank God, got her to vet in the quickest time and received anti venom (a baby Pygmy rattler ) Then another one of my mix breads (vet called her a "turtle hound" because we honestly don't have a clue what kind of dog she was) was bitten by a water moccasin, and I do believe that is the closest call in all of my years of owning dogs that I've ever had. I can remember as I drove breaking every speed limit because you're correct, time is a factor in a lot of different issues dealing with snakebites. I had called ahead and they had gotten the anti-venom ready, she was a dog that weighed right under 50 pounds. A little bit on the tall side, let's say right around my knee in height, but I kid you not, her leg was swollen to the size of my calf when I saw her laying down way out from our house in the country. I Took off running. picked her up and ran all the way back straight to the car and off we went. Thank God again, the anti-venom saved her as well. I don't know where Pinkie was bitten, but I'm sure glad you notice her quickly! I don't mess around when it comes to those dang snake bites! 🙏🙏🙏💗💗💗
I always shove 2 benadryl in mouth immediately, unless the average dog is bitten inside the mouth. Or throat or extremely allergic to venom they will recover just fine although it's very scary to us . I've had on dog bitten 4 times we don't even take him to vet anymore just treat him with benadryl. The bulldog bitten once very scary but he came through just fine. There is a snake vaccine you can give them that can help your vet can inform you about vaccine. Prayers for your pinkie I'll know she be just fine
Oh no, no no !!! Dear God please, please touch Pinkie and let her be ok !! And please let Renee be safe on the road. In Jesus name I pray Amen. My Daisy was bitten last year by a rattle snake and the vet said they have more of a chance of being ok if they are bitten on the face or their head. I`am so sorry Pinkie I will keep on praying for you to be !00% healed.
Oh Pinkie! Sweet little girl I know that hurts so bad and everyone is so worried about you. My boxers haven't yet learned to leave those things alone and have been bit several times. Luckily after a few days of "Marshmallow Face", as I like to call it, they're back to normal. We're praying for y'all.
My little guy was bitten by a copperhead, did well . Hang in there Pinkie.i know it hurts but meds will help. FYI , the Rattlesnake vac does help with copperhead bites. I keep my 10# terrier current on it because we have a lake house and that is where he was bitten. It took about. 2 days and he was back up and being my little boy. Get well quick little one.
Heavenly Father, I lift Pinkie up to you right now. I bind all symptoms and ill health from this snakebite and speak God's complete and total healing into spirit, soul and body. Give her doctors and caregivers wisdom and knowledge in her care. Surround Renee and Pinkie with Your presence and God's holy angels. I send the Holy Spirit to comfort Renee and those praying for and supporting this beautiful little dog. In the name of Jesus, Pinkie be healed. I ask this in Jesus name, believing we will receive Pinkie's healing. Amen.
Prayers. She should be okay... have had a dog bitten by rattler. Not going to be a good few days but she should pull thru. I am praying. This is just too much. Sometimes I do loath the country living.
It'll be ok! Good thst Renee is getting little darlin' there right away! Sending all my best pawsitive thoughts and lots of <3 for a speedy recovery for Pinkie!!
Oh my....prayers😞 I had a dachshund that was bitten on the neck and the venom was too powerful for her body to handle😭 Baby copperheads venom is stronger than a full grown one...praying heavy for Pinkie....🙏❤
Pinkie, precious. Don't play with those! They are not ropes, stick to your rocks. You are going to be fine, you will be ok! But you may feel bad for a while. The vet will fix you right up, you just relax now.
She get a steroid shot and be just fine go out a nd get couple of boxes of real benadryl and keep tgem ready and out during snake season.sept and Oct are worst because they are fixing to hibernate.
Oh pinkie! Prayers for you but Rene she will be fine. I have had dogs been bitten before and just discomfort and meds. Thank God it was a baby and not the big bad momma.
Idk how far you are from the vet but ours said to give Benadryl before we left. Hoping she stays calm and quiet until she arrives at the vet! Poor little Pinkie...

Granny and Collette are clean and comfortable, Granny is in love with this bed and I'm told she rolls upside down and paws at you for love.
Collette is just a silly pup who is curious and happy and bucking around like a little pony looking for someone to play with.
I don't know about you but it absolutely warms my heart that they are in a home, clean, fed and in a soft clean bed. It must absolutely blow their minds.
Good night everyone 💤 ... See MoreSee Less
I know I sound naive, but I didn't realize there were dog auctions where you could buy dogs used for breeding at Mills. Do you need a special invitation or can anyone go? Is this legal in all states? Just curious and trying to get educated.
Our breed is so amazing ❤️🐾❤️ I have a new saying " If you think their heads are big , you should see the size of their hearts ♥️ "
I started following this site when the ranch rescued the Greys Anatomy red bears because my friend Tracy is the one that contacted you guys. I am in awe of what you do and think you guys are awesome. I told my husband today that one day I want to have my own red bear.
I adopted a Yorkie puppy mill mama. She would lie down NEXT to the bed, on the cold tile, because she didn't know about beds. Our other dog taught her. It made me so sad. These people who can abuse animals so badly will have to answer for it.
We felt like that with our own adopted dog from the local pound. When she first came home we put out an old sleeping bag for on her first night. It's been 6 months now and she only wants to sleep there. We figure it means "I'm loved" to her.
Warms my heart, so happy they were saved. It is absolutely amazing what love and compassion can do. This is just the start of your new life Granny and little Collette you will never be mistreated again!❤️❤️
Give them both a huge good night hug and kiss for me, please! Especially Granny, she stole my heart ❤️ I'm so happy for her 😍
All the wonderful DDBs seem too be able to look right into your heart. Beautiful old souls no matter what their numerical age.
Good Night sweet babies and sweet dreams of the wonderful new lives that await. This is only a taste of the good life to come.
God Bless you LSDR for all of the miracles that you perform every day.
I'm so glad they have soft beds now, it's awful that Granny had so long in that life.
Love your post and these beauties! I bet it does "blow their minds" to be in such luxury after their horrible beginning.
She is wondering "what is this soft stuff all around me?" "I think I like it"
Good night Ladies, sweet dreams. Wake up with smiles cuz it is life worth living from now on.
You know they must wonder why the change but I think for not one minute do they miss the mill!!
It absolutely warms my heart too........you are awesome!!!'mmmm
Carly Gooch we need six of these!!!
Beautiful..they look so happy!! 💛💙💝💘
A clean soft bed is the BEST!
I'm so in love!!!!
Thank you Ranch for all that you do!!
I ❤❤❤❤ granny:)
They look very comfortable!

We had a little scare with Hercules last night, Travis texted me that he had a seizure, it lasted a little less than a minute and he seemed to come right out of it. He's back to his normal silly self and trotted all the way to the Ranch this morning and offered me this big toothy grin.
Of course we will keep a close eye on him but I thought all of you would like to know. ... See MoreSee Less
Herc it would seem that the ranch has been busy lately. You need to stay in tip top shape so you can help with all the new bears coming in. Sending prayers for Herc and everybody at the ranch.
Herc!!! Muster all your super powers together and stay strong you have no idea how loved you are with the Village and of course your Daddy❤️❤️
He reminds us that every day is a gift and to not take him or this day for granted. Thank you for sharing the information and completely adorable picture. Herk, you are magic.
I know we all just LOVE this precious boy so much. We need you around for a long time, Hercadoodle pie <3
Herc darn you do not scare everyone like that ! You better keep yourself in tip top running shape cause we depend on you and love you and look forward to hearing all the new about you (bug not this kind) ! Hopefully this was just a fluke ! Love you big guy and look at that face !
It's been busy at the Ranch, but get some rest and know you have the BEST people to look out for and take care of you. Love and prayers from Sadie/Rosina.
Herc - you are the first Ranch dog that completely stole my heart from the beginning of your story. I so love you. I know that your time is limited but now is not it! We need you sweet sweet boy - you are a heart healer ❤
Oh Herc I hope you are doing O.K. now. We all love you and know you are enjoying the love you are getting now at the Ranch. We want you around for a long, long time.
I've said it before and I'll say it again, "LUV me some Herc a Derk!!" Belated question, did Hercules get a WhataBurger for his rebirth-day?
I notice his pupils are different sizes. Our Bordeaux had the same thing. Is that common? Hope he's ok. We all love Bill Herc
Oh Herc, please stay well for a little while yet. You are so enjoying life on the Ranch. And we are enjoying you too.
We love you Hercules Hugs and prayers from Moxie and me 🙏🏻❤️🐾
Prayers for Hercules 🙏🏼
prayers up for Master Herc...we love you!
So glad you are back to your amazing Demi-God self, Herc.
Seizures are always scary.... hopefully its a one time thing.
My labradoodle has infrequent seizures, It can be very scary... that's for sure..
Hercules, please don't scare us like that! I'm glad he is ok now.
He had to come make you feel better. I'm betting it worked.😊
My heart would just shatter. I love this big guy. Stay strong Hercules and feel better.
Herc you are such a hadsome bear. You need to stay fit. No more scares okay.
Herc, you got this, Baby. Just keep on being the precious guy you are. You are so loved ❤️🙏
Hang in there big Herc. You are so loved and our prayers are with you.
Oh will say a prayer for one of my favorite big red bears.
Praying for this sweet boy🙏🏻♥️Glad he bounced right back. Love that Hercules ♥️😘

Basher came to us a few weeks ago as an owner surrender seeking a new home for him because he was being abused by another dog in the home.
He's just a pup at 7 months old but he's a big boy, a very sweet boy who anyone would be lucky to have. Belinda Alley adopted Jellybean/Jenny quite a while ago, her and Michael arrived at the Ranch to drop off Jellybean/Jenny and her brother Jake for a few days while they went out of town. Michael has wanted a red bear of his own for quite sometime and they asked if they could meet Basher and we said of course.
From what I understand it was pretty much love at first sight, they had concerns that Jake and Jenny would tolerate a new addition, they get jealous and offer a fuss so we had Wes and Travis both work with them on corrections, and behaviors that shouldn't be tolerated. They went home with loads of tips and a big baby red bear and they are just in love with him.
Belinda reports that they have made tons of progress in the home with everyones behavior and they plan to stick with it and have a very balanced pack that includes this baby bear.
He will live in Odessa Texas and his full name shall be....
Bone Basher Robbins....
We are so happy for all involved and thrilled that Michael has a Big Red Bear to call his very own...
💖 ... See MoreSee Less
Bone Basher! What a great name. This adoption is great. And we are pretty sure we will see him back at the ranch...but wearing a red collar.
I still can't believe it is real!!! You all know Jake and Jenny Jellybean live in a Cat House. Belinda Alley has her hands full. I never expected her to agree to another dog. It was actually her that showed me Basher's pic and his story. I do believe things happen for a reason. We planned a trip to Dallas made reservations at the Ranch before Basher was even there. It all worked out the way it was supposed to. I am so great full to the ranch and all they do. I am happy Belinda took in more just to make it possible. My job keeps me away do she is in charge and doing a fantastic job with all of the pups and cats. Thank you all for the comments. I wanted a red bear since I saw Turner and Hooch at 17. It took 28 years for the stars to line up but they have!!!! Bone Basher is Home!!!!
Basher has just joined the most amazing family!!!! Congratulations on the new addition!!! Oh the stories you will tell!!
Basher, you have your new furever home and 2 playmates. You are a lucky puppy and so are your new Mommie and Daddy. Have fun all of you.
Great family photo! ....and they lived happily ever after....
Look at the smile on Michael's face!!!! That says it all.
Perfect family Basher couldn't be in a better home. Congratulations I'm sooooo happy for all of you ❤️❤️❤️❤️❤️❤️
Super cute pack!! That Basher is the cutest red bear ever!! ❤️
What a nice family. It is always wonderful to read a successful adoption story!! ❤❤
Belinda Alley!!!!!...ohhhh this is fabulous!!!!!!...ohhhh I could not love this more!!!!!!..WOOOO HOOOOO!!!!!!❤️❤️❤️❤️❤️
I hope your not offended by this but Michael and sweet Basher seem to resemble each other just a bit!
Welcome to Odessa, Basher!!!
Sounds like a great plan, commitment and family! Let the journey begin.
Congrats on the new addition! I know that Jellybean and Jake will love their new brother!
What a nice family you have, Bone Basher! You are a blessed boy.
Oh how cool! I love reading her stories of the dogs and now will have another to get to know :)
Oh this is just fabulous!! And I love his new full name :D Happiest life beautiful boy with your wonderful new family 💖
Whooo hoooo!!! This baby couldn't have found a better home!!!! Congratulations Belinda and Michael and the pack!!!!
Great family picture! Love to baby boy Bone Basher Robbins!❤️
Beautiful Bone Basher got a great home and great parents. Live the good life Bone Basher!

As I told you we rescued 2 Bordeaux's yesterday from a mill auction. The second one is this little lady, she's 1.5 years old and was advertised to the other mill owners as "has been in heat and running with a male"
This is their common phrase to excite buyers that they might be getting a pregnant dog. Many times they are pregnant, many times they are not, sometimes we end up with a pregnant dog that they didn't even know was pregnant.
As always we will take it one step at a time. She will be examined and assessed and we will make decisions from there.
All that matters right now is that she is safe, clean, and comfortable.....and if I might add has the most adorable toofers you might have ever seen.
She apparently didn't like getting that bath but once the massage started she wasn't coming out and she just sat there and stared saying "Hey Lady how about you keep doing that"
Can I get a big welcome to Dog Ranch Rescue to Collette. ... See MoreSee Less
This may sound like a dumb question, but do the rescues ever try to bite when they're bathed for the first time? It seems like they might be a little aggressive since they're not used to being handled.
omg she is a really really cute one!!!! Ugh. I don't know how you do this day in and day out but I'm so grateful for you, the transporters, fosters, and villagers with $$$ that make all this happen. I'm in awe of ALL of YOU!!!! ❤️
Her eyes looked worried! Sweet Collette, you have made it to a great place where you will receive great loving! They will see you find the best home available! Don't worry any more, sweet girl!
You are so beautiful and yes the toofers are adorbs ! You can now be clean, fed and get lots of rest ! Gosh I wish I could have one of you but I think you babies are a little to big for me to handle ! My pug could always take me for a ride !
I hate that she looks so sad but hopefully in a few days after being with you guys she'll have a :) on
I'd fill an application out for this dog if I wasn't a rescue mom to 5 dogs and 4 cats. Hope you find a wonderful loving family Collette!!
Welcome Colette. Those eyes. If only we knew what you had seen. But this is a good place. You'll be very happy and comfortable here.
Hello baby. Life for you now will be nothing but love ,massages and those toofers will show more and more every day with a big smile. Welcome sweetie.
Love the toofers!
Collette, you just won the doggy lottery. Life is about to change for the better.
It's probably the wrinkles but Bordeauxs have the most expressive faces. Poker is not their game.
Collette is a real beauty. She looks so healthy
She's sooo pretty! Beautiful face & YES.... those sweet toofers! ❤️❤️❤️
She is a beautiful girl. Collette great name and a great song by Everly Brothers
Thankful y'all got this beautiful girl. She'll have no problem finding a forever home 🐾💕💕🐾
Such sad roofers!! Turn that frown upside down you're in heaven now precious girl! You will want for nothing.
She looks so sad. Poor girl doesn't quite know how her life has changed yet. She will learn soon!
Another one hit the furbaby jackpot! Welcome to a whole new life!!
She's a beautiful girl 😍 And a smart one too and obviously loves massages, who doesn't 💆🏻 You're safe now, Collette! 😍
I'm a Dane mom.... But....I think just fell in love with Collette 😊
She is one pretty lady.. Welcome to paradise Collette.. You are going to turn heads with your gorgeous look..
Hello beautiful girl with such sad eyes <3 That massage is just the beginning of your happy new life 😍
That the first thing I saw was her adorable toofers she looks worried but she Beautiful
