Animal Adoption: Honey

Success Story Wednesday True Blue Animal Rescue Dog Adopted Honey

Success Story Wednesday!

Here is Honey, who has found her forever home! You can see her here showering her new mom with kisses. Any time her new mom left the car she would cry for her – she knew they belonged together!

Honey was a female dachshund mix who was rescued from a shelter by one of our TBAR volunteers. This sweet young puppy quickly earned the heart of her foster Mom’s own mother, who decided to adopt Honey! It is always a great treat when a rescued dog gets to stay in the family.

Hooray for Honey! Thanks Shellie for rescuing her!

TBAR Success Story: Moose

TBAR Adopted Dog Moose


Our Throwback Success Story is Moose, affectionally known as a foster failure.

His foster mother had to bottle feed him when his mom was hit by a car. After many long nights feeding baby Moose, his foster mother and family fell in love with him and he fit right in with the other dogs in his new family.

Congrats to Moose and his new family!

True Blue Animal Rescue Success Stories December 3, 2014

Our most recent success stories include our three newest Maltese Mix dogs as well as Smokey Lonesome, who had been in TBAR waiting for his forever home for a while!

Smokey Lonesome

Smokey Lonesome wandered up to a family’s home in Chappell Hill and decided that he would just live with the kind people who would feed him. But this family was unable to give him a home due to their extensive traveling and didn’t want to leave him homeless. They could tell from his behavior that he had very likely been abused so they contacted TBAR who ended up having a foster home step up for Smokey.

Smokey was approximately born on November 1, 2012 and is an Australian Shepherd. When he was with the family who found him, he was very fearful of new people and things, especially the leash. He was being fostered by a dog trainer who has been able to work with Smokey on his fears to help him find a perfect forever home. He adjusted well and loved his foster parents very much. Smokey Lonesome was adopted by the Ratchfords who also adopted Ciara and the two are getting along wonderfully!

Maltese Mix

True Blue Animal Rescue Maltese Mixes November 2014

Here’s the before picture of the little maltese dogs. They were abandoned and left in a house with no food and water. they lived in filth and their hair was overgrown.

Thanks to the San Felipe PD for responding to an animal cruelty call and taking possession of 5 dogs who needed immediate help! Thanks to TBAR volunteer Casie Cooper for organizing volunteers to help get these dogs cleaned up, and finding them homes very quickly! What a difference a day and a bunch of folks can make in the life of an animal.

Success Story: Gamora and Hanns!


Success Story Wednesday! The last of Senior dog Sage’s puppies have found their forever home! Here is Gamora’s with her new family that fell in love with her at Oktoberfest!

We are also happy that Hanns, one of the puppies who was abandoned on the side of the road with his brothers and sisters, has found his forever home!

Both of these dogs look like they have nothing but happy lifetimes ahead of them! We are grateful to all the foster homes who rehabilitate these babies and to the wonderful adopters who make them part of their family.

Success Story: Charlie Brown Family Chihuahuas!


#TBT: Earlier this year TBAR stepped in and saved this Mama Chihuaha and her litter of pups with the help ofHouston, Save Lives is our Mission. We had a great foster home volunteer, Michelle Wessels Marburger, who offered to take them all in. Now, months later, all are happy and healthy and in FURever homes! And that includes the two that stole their hearts of their foster family and were adopted by them

Thank you everyone who hand a hand in saving this litter, and especially Michelle and her family for stepping up to foster and working hard to find homes for them all! We couldn’t save lives without our foster homes!

Success Stories: September 17, 2014


We have three recent success stories to share! Mattie was one of the “bottle baby” puppies that were saved by TBAR volunteers this summer. She has a great family now, look at that #Selfie! Nebula was one of our “Guardians of the Galaxy” pups that were a surprise litter from our senior rescue, Sage. And Gracie is a boxer mix that has been a foster pup in wait of her forever home. Congrats on your new homes girls! And THANK YOU to those great families that have opened your home and hearts.

Success Story: Piper


This afternoon’s success story is Piper! Remember that mangy little dog that was found in a culvert pipe? He had been hiding there for weeks getting sicker and sicker while people who saw him kept looking the other way. Lucky for him Diane Holt saw him and vowed to save him. She captured him and got him the help he needed. Then she fostered him till he was healthy and ready for adoption. In the end Diane decided to adopt him and even though we call it a foster failure when the foster home decides to adopt it couldn’t have been a better outcome for sweet Piper because he loves the Holt’s as much as they love him and now he gets to live with them forever. Piper is one lucky boy!
