Breed: Dogue de Bordeaux
Location: anna, TX
Let me introduce our second bear we have brought in today. This boy is young and was living outside in South Texas and the neighbors convinced them to surrender him to give him a better life and pointed them in our direction. He is shy but shows lots of good signs that he can come around and will be friendly with people. He is very good with other dogs and is pretty submissive with them as you can see.
We will work hard on showing him that life will be good from here on out and living inside can even be better.
Welcome to Dog Ranch Rescue Woodstock…
I’m going to take a moment to talk to everyone about these boys Woodstock and Jeff Goldblum. Both of these boys are around a year old, owner surrenders and both of them suffer from the same thing. When raising a Bordeaux its very important to socialize them as much as possible. New people, new dogs, new places, new sounds, new things.
That hasn’t happened for these boys and they suffer because of it. Both of them are very shy with people, they will not approach you readily. We have them at the point now where they will stop for us and we can then go and get them to put them in a den to eat and to sleep.
Funny thing is when you have them confined in a den they are very sweet and gentle but wide open spaces worry them as you try and catch them. Woodstock is better than Jeff but I would consider both of them social special needs dogs like we have had in the past with Thelma, Candy Corn and Witchy Poo. We have taken them as far as we can in the setting they live in at the Ranch. Normal packs of dogs shave helped them tremendously to mimic their behavior and learn to trust. What they need now we cannot offer them at the Ranch, they need their own home, their own person in a small space like a home, consistent reassurance, and consistent trust with their human.
We are ready to now start and look for a special home for both of these boys, they are excellent with other dogs very submissive males. They are eating well but they do want raw added to their kibble in order to get them to eat. They came too thin and we have steadily been getting weight on them.
What I’m looking for is a home that is willing to dedicate the time and work needed to help get them as socially healthy as possible. They need walks on a leash, they need to know a routine in their home and living with other dogs would be very beneficial for them. Woodstock loves water very much and is in the pond every day, dipping his head and splashing about. Jeff Goldblum couldn’t care less about water and as I said is a little more shy than Woodstock.
