Breed: Dogue de Bordeaux
Location: Anna, TX
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.
