PhaserCloseUpWeb T-Bar Name: Phaser T-Bar Number:D155 Weight: 35 lbs
Sex: Male puppy   Age on 1/2009:  2 yr 10 months
Breed:  Border Collie X 
Color:  Black and White
ADOPTED – Thank you for adopting a special needs dog!!**Special Needs**
DescriptionPhaser is a sweet and loving dog with a big heart, but since his mom and his siblings were fending for themselves before coming to True Blue Animal Rescue, he is still very shy with people. He doesn’t come up to you; and leaves it up to you to approach him. Phaser needs a loving, patient forever home and in the meantime, he would really benefit from a foster family who was willing to spend time with him and teach him to trust people. He does walk on a leash and is crate trained thanks to a wonderful volunteer.Do you have some extra love to spare? Phaser’s life story got off to a bumpy start, but with your help, it could have a happy ending. Fostering one of our dogs, like Phaser, for a month would make them more adoptable so they can find a forever home of their own. When you foster, all food and vet bills will be paid by True Blue Animal Rescue. We can also provide a crate for you to borrow if needed. If you are willing to foster Phaser or one of the other shy TBar dogs please call for more information at 936/878-2349.

DescriptionAsheilah, Peppa and Milo were wandering the streets with their mother when a kind person took them in and cared for them. When the pups were old enough they were donated to True Blue Animal Rescue (TBAR) so we could find them a good forever home.  Asheilah and Peppa had extensive training in their foster home; and as a result, have fabulous manners! Peppa is an all-around great dog – gets along with other dogs, loves people, and loves attention. This 2 year old American Staffordshire Terrier is past the puppy chewing stage and is ready to settle into a family of her own. She’s happy living outside, but would love to be indoors with you and a dog companion to play with. She’s waiting for a family that will love her and keep her forever. Of course, she’s spayed and had all her shots.

Sex: Spayed Girl  Age on 1/26/2009 8 months
Breed:  Shepherd/ Retriever Mix
Color:  Black with white and gold highlights
Adopted – Thank you!
Description: Why is Missy asking for a third chance? Well, she already got a second chance at life when she was discovered along with her mom and seven new-born littermates where they had been abandoned on an out-of-the-way country road. The kind person who picked them up and took them to True Blue Animal Rescue (TBAR) knew they would be well cared for in a foster home. But this sweet retriever mix needs a forever home of her own. Missy is about six months old, and spayed and vaccinated, so she is ready to join a family who will appreciate her loyal and loving personality. She gets along wonderfully with adults, kids, and other dogs. Are you that special someone who will give Missy her opportunity to live the rest of her life in a loving, safe, home where she will never need to worry about being abandoned again?

BuckySep072Web T-Bar Name:  Bucky T-Bar Number: D188 Weight: 45 lbs
Sex: Neutered Male  Age on 5/2009:  3.5 yrs
Breed:  Labrador / Shepherd
Color:  Black
ADOPTED – Thank You!!
DescriptionBucky had a difficult start to his life but that has just added to his character and charm. He came to True Blue Animal Rescue (TBAR) after being dumped in the country and found hiding out under a fallen cattle panel. A nicked ear and a couple of other small scars are testament to his past abandonment. Now Bucky walks on a leash, is crate trained, and could easily be completely housebroken. Buck is a sweet, black Labrador / Shepherd mix which puts him in the ‘Bermuda Triangle’ of animal rescue. That’s the place where black dogs go, and they have a hard time finding their way out to a forever home. No one knows why this phenomena exists; it just does. And poor Bucky has been stuck without a family through no fault of his own. He’s friendly, loving and playful. At 1.5 years old, he’s past the puppy stage of teething and jumping all over you, and would make a great companion for you and other dogs. Buck is very intelligent and willing to learn, so if you want to teach him tricks, he’s ready! All he needs now is for someone to see him for his wonderful Self and adopt him. As TBAR finds homes for Bucky and other dogs, we will be able to make more room for the many strays and hurricane refugees

Dakota T-Bar Name:  Dakota T-Bar Number: D357 Weight:15 lb
Sex: Boy Puppy  Age on 6/15/2009 16 wks
Breed:  Boxer Mix
Color:  Brown/black brindle  with white chest & face
Adopted – Thank You!
Description: If Dakota has a look of puzzled hurt on his face, it is well justified. He’s probably wondering why in the world someone would starve him, ignore him, and then push him out of their truck on a lonely country road. (A crime by the way.) Happily for Dakota, someone saw what happened, picked him up, and brought him to True Blue Animal Rescue (TBAR). Since this photo was taken, this adorable 4-month-old boxer mix puppy has already begun to put on weight and is crate trained. Dakota is friendly to people and to other dogs. He’s such a sweet dog too! He stays in his crate or kennel and quietly waits for someone to come get him and take him out or feed him. It’s like he’s saying, can I really stay here? It’s so nice here, do I get to stay? He can’t believe he gets to eat several times a day! Please consider giving Dakota the loving forever home he so deserves.

ADOPTED – Thank You!
Description: Chance is a wonderful and very sweet dog. He’s big,  but he’s gentle and loving. He’s got a great personality, walks well on a leash, comes when called, and is likely housebroken because he doesn’t like to go to the bathroom in his kennel and will wait until we let him out.

DarlingTopWeb T-Bar Name: Darling T-Bar Number: D244 Weight: 5lbs
Sex: Spayed Girl Age on 2/2009:
Breed:  Labrador
Color:  Black
ADOPTED – Thank You!
Darling is much too friendly to have been a lifelong stray; and because of this, she trusted the wrong people. Darling was found at a gas station. She was skinny, had an abscess and infection around her head and neck and she has a scar along the top of her back that is typically seen on dogs when someone squirts lighter fluid on an animal and lights it. Darling had nearly given up hope and was sitting to the side looking sad and forlorn when Melanie called her over. She decided to try and find help one more time and slowly walked over. After a trip to the vet to clean her wounds and get her started on antibiotics Darling started to come out of her shell. With plenty of good food Darling quickly put on weight and became the energetic, happy, lab mix that she had been before. The scar on her back will be a reminder that not all people are nice and that bad things can happen when you’re left out alone. Thank you to Darling’s sponsor:  Nancy Shulman

ADOPTED – Thank You!
Description: Charlie is remarkable for several reasons. This adorable light brown & white puppy has one brown eye and one “pie” eye (half blue & half brown). Charlie’s survival is pretty remarkable too considering that his pregnant mom was dumped and left to fend for herself, and give birth to eight babies by a lonely country road. Remarkable also is that a caring individual happened upon them just in time and brought them to a TBAR foster home. At almost six months old, Charlie is now a happy and affectionate retriever/beagle mix overflowing with love to be lavished on his forever family. He gets along great with other dogs and is neutered and vaccinated and ready to go home

Description: Ryanne was abandoned along with her sister and two brothers on the side of the road in a five gallon tree bucket. The puppies were only 4 weeks old and not even weaned. Covered with festering ant bites and full of worms, they wouldn’t have lasted many more hours but for the Providential discovery by a good-hearted soul who brought them to TBAR. Ryanne, a 10 week old female Rat Terrier/Beagle mix is a pretty cream color with tan tips on her ears. She is now a healthy young lady who has been spayed and vaccinated, and who will grow up to be about 20 – 25 pounds.

Sex: Neutered Boy  Age on 2/2009 9 months
Breed: Terrier / Beagle
Color:  Black and White
ADOPTED – Thank You!
Description:

Special Simon had a rough start in life. Found abandoned and with terrible ant bites all over his body when only three weeks old, Simon was barely hanging on to life. One veterinarian didn’t give him any hope at all. But his foster mom wouldn’t give up and nursed and bottle-fed him around the clock. With the help of another veterinarian – and with the heart and will to fight for his life – Simon pulled through. He is now a healthy, energetic four-month-old testimony to the will to live. Simon is a handsome black & white medium-small terrier mix who loves other dogs, children, and even cats. He’s neutered and current on vaccinations. Simon has earned the chance for a good home where he can run freely in a safely fenced backyard and then come in to snuggle on the sofa and receive plenty of belly rubs in which he so delights. For more information, contact TBAR at 936- 878-2349 or visit the website at www.t-bar.org to see color photos. TBAR is looking for temporary foster homes to care for dogs like Simon until the right forever home comes along.

ADOPTED – Thank You!
Description: Dutch was on the euthanasia list when we came across him at the Animal Control Facility, He is approximately 1.5 years old, is very intelligent and seems to have had a lot of training, is housebroken, crate trained, is better with older kids (only because of his energy level), He seems to have come from a good home, but he had no micro-chip to be able to trace him back to his family and his time was up at the shelter. He is a German Shepherd/Dutch Shepherd mix, and is a strikingly beautiful animal that attracts a lot of attention in public. Dutch would love to have a big fenced yard, and wants very much to be treated as part of the family and included in all their activities. Dutch is very a special dog and very unusual in his level of intelligence, and is looking for his special family to come and make him part of their home. Dutch is a real looker, cars stopped to watch him the day we had him at Petsmart!  Update: Dutch was adopted to a wonderful forever home. He is a therapy dog for their other dog that was a severe abuse case.  They say he looks after her, and now she will even go for walks with Dutch and go outside.

Sex: Neutered Boy Age on 12/2008 1 yr
Breed: Siberian Husky
Color:  Beautiful blue eyes and husky coloring

ADOPTED – Thank you!
Description: Husky was found wandering around Navasota by a True Blue Animal Rescue member; and nobody has claimed him. The lady who found him has 7 other dogs and cannot keep him any longer.He tries to play with her dogs through the fence so he doesn’t appear to be aggressive and he plays with her other big female when she let her out with him. He is a gorgeous dog and is not food aggressive either.  He was kept in her storage room and he didn’t make a mess so he’s apparently housebroken. He cannot continue to be locked up in her storage room because she needs that space for her dogs to sleep. Please consider taking in this sweet dog and either fostering him until we can find him a home, or make him your permanent pet. He’s an absolute doll and looks to be under one year old.  For more information, contact TBAR at 936- 878-2349

Gracie

Gracie

 

Gracie was days from death when she was rescued. Your support bought her TLC in the form of healing foods, veterinary care, and lots of attention. 8 months later, Gracie was healthy again and found her forever home. T-Bar couldn’t do this important work without you and your support. All donations go directly to the animals!

Gracie’s Story:

Description: Gracie was donated to TBAR and is emaciated. Her body registered a 1 on the Henneke Body Scale – as low as it gets. She’s only 2 years old and has been starved most of her short life. She has to be given food slowly because she doesn’t know that she will never go without food again. (picture taken at her previous home)  

Update: April 14, 2008: Gracie has put on a lot of weight and her winter coat is shedding out in chunks! It’s hard to catch her with her head up, she’s eating all the time. Thanks to your support, Gracie is getting the care and feed she needs to get back to health!

Update: October 1, 2008: Look at Gracie now! She’s beautiful, happy and healthy and ready for a forever home!

November 2008: Gracie and Valentino were adopted together! Thank you!

Thank you to Gracie’s Sponsor(s): V. Bridges Hoyt Design

BrookeJul07Web Brooke had a bright future. A young, foundation quarter horse filly, with beautiful sorrel coloring; part of a herd of mares and watched over by several stallions – she had her  whole life ahead of her. But then the nightmare began. The grass was gone, the grain was gone, the hay was gone – for a long time. Brooke watched sadly as some of her fellow horses and cows died from lack of food. Only the strongest would survive. The old and the young were the most at risk; and she was one of them. One day, several people with badges came and brought food. It felt good to have a full belly again, even though it would be a long road for Brooke’s  body to look healthy again. With the help of a lot caring people – some with badges, some who rescue horses – Brooke  came to True Blue Animal Rescue. Now, at only 2.5-3 years old, Brooke has a bright future again. She’s halter broke, willing to trust, and ready to start under saddle. She would make a beautiful addition to your stable. buster2006

She needs an experienced rider and will do great with children with some more training..

Color: Red Roan
Breed:  
Abilities: She is halter broke, gentle on the ground. Rosey is rideable; and needs an experienced rider. 
ADOPTED – Thank You! Location: Washington
Description: Rosey’s life had taken a dire turn; and she didn’t know how much longer she could go on. She and 3 other horses shared a small pasture in the country that had long since run out of grass. Water was scarce, and there was no cover from the winter weather. When the owner did bring some food, Rosey and the 2 other horses let the baby horse eat first. Then the older boy horse, Chief, let the two girls – Rosey and Duchess – eat next; but it showed. He was skin and bones. Thankfully, the authorities seized Rosey and the other horses; and the court awarded them to True Blue Animal Rescue where they could be rehabilitated. Rosey is halter-broke, has fabulous ground manners and is probably rideable. A beautiful, 10 year old strawberry roan, Rosey is healthy again and ready for a loving, forever home.

Fast forwarding to the present, True Blue has grown up into a beautiful three year old ready to start under saddle. She has deep brown, soft eyes that show her gentle, loving character.

Tuscany
We gave him everything we had: food, love, veterinary care, and prayers;  but in the end, we couldn’t save Tuscany from severe starvation.

 

 

Thursday, July 24th – TBAR (Melanie and Dale) went out to meet the vet and check out this horse  after a lady called TBAR and told us he was losing weight and she couldn’t afford to feed him anymore. TBAR ended up making an emergency decision and taking Tuscany into our rescue on the spot. He is beyond skinny. He is a walking skeleton. He is a 0.5 on the Henneke Body Scoring.  We named him Tuscany. We named him that because we know he will live up to the name when he fills out and becomes the beautiful horse he once was. He’s in his early 20’s which means he is not extremely old for a horse. Today horses live well into their 30’s. There is no reason for this guy to be this thin except that he didn’t have enough food.

When Dale and I went out to see him after a phone call from the owner telling us that she can’t afford to feed him and begging us to take him we were stunned by what we saw. There was some poor quality grain but no hay for this guy to eat but his eyes were bright and he looked at us with hope. Enough said, so we went back and picked up the trailer and took him home. He’s eating senior feed four times a day with plenty of hay so we expect him to come around and start gaining weight quickly.

August 13th – Sadly, Tuscany lost his battle to recover from severe starvation; and passed away this morning, unable to rise. In the end, he was ready to go and we helped him cross over. Our hearts are broken, not being able to save this magnificent Soul. He is not suffering any more. 

THANK YOU to all Tuscany’s supporters!! 

For the last 3 weeks, Tuscany knew love and care from humans. He was honored as the brave, courageous Spirit that he was. And had plenty of food (in small, frequent quantities), shelter, warmth and tender loving care. Please light a candle for Tuscany. Say hello to Chief, Toot, Chai and the other TBar horses in heaven, Tuscany.  Tell them we miss them and look forward to seeing them again some day.
