Breed: Dogue de Bordeaux
Current Location: Euless TX
Adoption Date: August 16, 2019
Adopted by: Renee and Wes Stephenson
This adoption has been a long time coming, months, and months, and months of rehab, surgery, and rehab from surgery for Bernadette’s foot after being hit by a car.
Her adoptive family has waited for her for a very long time. Bernadette was finally ready to go home. While her surgery was considered a success she will always have a limp but she doesn’t limp from pain she limps from her bones needing to be fused in her foot as that was the only way to relieve her pain. Her forever family doesn’t care if she limps and they love her all the same. Travis put his heart and soul into this girl and taught her much needed manners before sending her on her way, he drove her to her new home himself and made sure all was well before saying goodbye.
Bernadette will live with Renee and Wes Stephenson from Euless Texas ( don’t think we didn’t notice the names being the same as ours 😂)
She’s also got a toddler of her own that she adores and her family loves her to pieces.
We are so happy for all of you 💗About Bernadette:
When we rescued sweet Bernie he was in the shelter with a female Bordeaux that we tagged to rescue as well. Before we picked them up, she was adopted out. We were later contacted by the shelter that this beauty had either been dumped or escaped from her adopters and apparently been hit by a car, did we still want her? Absolutely!
She is about 105 but she’s emaciated at that weight, ideally she will weigh about 115 to 120. Who knows how long she had been running before being hit by a car and limping along the freeway. She’s very heavy boned and I would guess she’s between 1 and 2 years old. Her cast is very, very cumbersome covering her entire leg and her entire foot, it’s difficult for her to maneuver and I’ve ordered some XXL dog boots to put over it to keep it from dragging outside getting filthy. She’s to have limited movement with no running and no jumping.
Travis has taken her home and introduced her to his pack, she’s inexperienced with other dogs and was afraid of Daryl who is a wildman. After an hour or so we had everyone calmed down and she was quietly sleeping on the kitchen tile floor where she preferred to be. He says she is a very good girl. We are happy to also report she is heart worm negative!
She will stay with Travis where she will heal and get good food and love. Right now she’s resting and is happy to have a belly full of cheeseburger and fries…
Welcome to the Ranch, Bernadette.
