Success Story: Black Jack



Little Black Jack is a black and brown Dachshund who has found his forever home!  He has a new mom and dad and two doggy sisters that he loves playing with.  Read below the message from his family!

To begin our story of adopting our rescue dog from T-Bar I have to start off telling you about Toby, our beloved Golden Retriever. Toby suddenly crossed over to the spirit side of life this past February. We had Toby for 12 years and losing him was devastating for our whole family.  Our family (the ones who live with us) consist of myself, my husband Dave and our other 2 dogs, Brandy and Lily. Lily and Brandy were just not the same after Toby died. They both had known Toby their whole lives.

Enter, Jack. Jack is the newest member of our family. Jack is a dachshund mix that we adopted   from T-Bar. A kind person found Jack wandering around the parking lot of a restaurant. He was skinny and not very healthy. Jack ended up at T-Bar.

We saw Jack’s picture on the T-Bar web site and fell in love. There was one problem. T-Bar is located in Texas and we live in New York. To the loving people at T-Bar this wasn’t a problem. One of their great volunteers (Shellie) offered to foster Jack, and my nephew Colton (another T-Bar volunteer) offered to deliver Jack to us when he came to New York for a visit.

I can’t begin to tell you how happy we are that we adopted Jack. There’s something so special about him. He is very caring and he seems to know how to make everyone (people and other dogs) feel better.  Most rescue dogs have been through a lot in their lives. They’ve endured hardship and because of this they seem to really appreciate their new life, and they seem to sense people who are going through difficult times. This is our experience with Jack. Jack has the ability to sense when someone is upset and does whatever is needed to make them feel better.

For example, a friend of mine came over the other day while she was going through a really hard time.  She was upset and crying as she talked about her life. Jack quietly went over to her and  sat next to her. He slowly and gently began leaning into her. She started petting him and he leaned in even closer and placed his paw on her leg. Little by little I watched her begin to relax and become calmer.  I really didn’t know how I was going to help this friend feel better. As it turned out I didn’t need to. Jack took care of it for me. He sensed how upset she was and he sat with her until she was alright.

Part of what I do for a living is see people and offer them counseling. After watching Jack with my friend I’ve allowed him to come in and sit with a couple of my clients that were going through some emotional difficulties. Jack did the same thing with my clients that he did with my friend. And I have to tell you, Jack doesn’t sit in everyone’s lap. In fact most of the time he’s busy playing and exploring.  Jack really is a special boy, and I really believe that because of what he’s been through in his life.  He understands when someone else feels scared, upset or alone. He knows just what to do to give them comfort.

I am so happy and feel so lucky that Jack (and T-Bar) are part of our lives.

Oh, and my other 2 dogs are finally back to being themselves. They are lively, happy & playful. It’s not that Jack replaced Toby. Toby is irreplaceable. But this new boy, Jack, who has come into our lives really has brought us so much joy and helped us heal from our loss.

The Pyrenees Puppies story:

Meet our newest rescues. We rescued six week old puppies from a neglectful situation. They were skinny and anemic and full of fleas and worms. They went right to the vet for treatment. The female puppy was adopted immediately and the two boys are in a foster home waiting for someone to adopt them. The pictures are of the boys waiting for adoption.

Success Story: Remy!


Remy (now called Lady) has found her forever home!  Her Dad brought her by to show us how big she is getting!

Remmy 2


Remy’s Story:

Remy is a lovely tempered, 11 week old, mostly Lab pup who is already a real lady where manners and gentleness are concerned.  She was found straying, hungry, weak and all the usual sad things that become of pups people dump.  Lucky for Remy, the gal who saw her along 290, is a True Blue Rescue staff and a wonderful foster home.  She stopped and picked up the pup, taking her back to share apartment digs with rescued foster kittens and cats, which is her foster/rescue focus. Remy’s foster mom also works at a vets, so got her evaluated, all puppy shots, tests and wormer. By now, this is a healthy, well trained pup.  We had her at an adoption event downtown, this weekend, along with 2 litters of younger pups – all of whom were stressed and scared.  Strange people, noises, a parade, etc., but to our amazement, Remy was calm and asking to get in the pen with the 15 upset babies. Though a baby herself, she right away started cuddling the smallest and most nervous pups. She was welcoming and open to the new people who came up and showed the great traits that are typical of many Labs. She will be a 40-50 lb. dog. She is calm, very responsive and showing signs of being a great choice for someone who needs a dog to bond with a special needs family member or other role calling for attentiveness and extra sensitivity on the part of the dog. But there is plenty of puppy too, loving to chase toys and play.  She is housebroken, crate trained walks well on a leash, sits and listens really well.  If you’d like to meet Remy call 936-878-2349 or email, [email protected] to make an appointment – and go to the website, to learn about the adoption or foster program guidelines and download an application.  Fill it out and send it back (email or regular mail) and once you are on file as an approved adopter or foster home, you can meet any animal you want and take them home for a sleepover – try out.

Success Story: Sweet Pea!

Sweet Pea

We are happy to announce that this little dog, Sweet Pea, found her forever home this weekend!  Congrats Sweet Pea!

Sweet Pea




Sweet Pea’s story:

Meet SWEET PEA, she is precious, gorgeous, smart as a whip, super affectionate, cuddly and playful. This pup is 5 months old and currently weighs 18-20 lbs. The vet tells us she’ll probably mature to 25 (maybe 30) pounds. She was taken in by a good neighbor who has fostered her and tells us that she saw the mother of Sweet Pea’s litter, and feels sure Mama dog is 1/2 Chihuahua. The rest of her family tree will have to remain a mystery. Little Sweet Pea is a perfect example of that wonderful breed, the Great American Mutt. In her face and coat, there could even be a few drops of Black Mouth Cur or Shepherd. It’s all good – and she comes with a very sweet heart to boot. Her foster mom has taught her to walk on a leash, crate trained her and given her plenty of experience with a big house hold. She likes kids and has never growled or snapped, even with the littlest, pulling tail and ears and trying to pick her up. She likes to chase the cats, but just for fun and has never been aggressive with them.
Sweet Pea sleeps in her crate at night and is a great inside or outside dog. She has a happy disposition and is real responsive to being taught. Like all of True Blue Animal Rescue’s adoptables , she is spayed, current on shots and healthy.

Success Story: Rosie!


Look who got adopted today! Rosie, the stray dog from the streets of Houston has a family of her own now! She has kids and a new Mom. A yard of her own and she’ll live inside! We are thrilled for Rose and her new family! What a great day!

Here is Rosie sleeping next to her baby brother when he fell asleep on her pillow.  She already knows to be gentle with the baby and she loves to play harder with the older kids!

photo (3)Rosie’s Story:


Rosie was wandering Houston streets, trying to survive on whatever scraps she could find and becoming more and more uncomfortable and weak from a skin infection in the many cuts and scraps on her once lovely, angel white coat. She was living the life of abandoned dogs everywhere. Rosie sure needed an angel (though, she is one herself, as you’ll soon see). A kind woman stopped to help, and kept calling every no kill shelter and rescue she could google, until she got a yes. Luckily, True Blue Animal Rescue made room and took her into their rehabilitation program. Rosie amazed TBAR staff right from the get go. She stayed loving and happy, no matter what she had to go through to heal. She was ready to play and kiss and wiggle with delight, even though her poor body was just bones, sores and exhaustion. You’d never know all that, looking at her original pictures, but it is important because it tells what kind of dog Rosie will be in her forever home. Rosie is fun loving and so very gentle with other animals, little kids and everyone she meets. She’s a medium sized dog (40 lb.’s when grown) and a boxer/terrier mix. She is great in the house, on a leash and in the car.





If you are looking for your own angel dog please view our other friends waiting for their forever home.  You can call TBAR (936)878-2349 or email: [email protected]. The first step in adoption (or fostering) is to fill out an application.

Dog Success Stories: January-March 2013

We are pleased with the adoptions that have happened so far this year!  Please let us share with you four of our early 2013 Dog Success Stories!


Lucky Adoptedpet_440_1

Here’s Lucky, the sunglasses wearing dog, and his new Dad! We were thrilled to see Lucky go to his new home after a Petsmart adoption day! Lucky was adopted by a young couple to live in their home with their pet cat!

Lucky’s Story:  His luck had just about run out when the rescue where he was held, ran out of funds and was closing. For the dogs living there, this meant being shuffled around between whatever kill shelters would take them, where their chances of finding a home were 50/50, at best. But some dedicated volunteers started networking like crazy to find places for these dogs in no-kill shelters and rescues, like TBAR. Lucky, a homeless pooch made his way to TBAR and even got to see Santa and ask for his forever home for Christmas. Lucky is a lucky boy but he wants his adopters to know, he’ll be thrilled with any name they choose for him; that he is a very gentle and happy; and a friendly guy with children and other dogs. While at TBAR, Lucky quickly and willingly mastered the things dogs need to know. He walks well on a leash, is crate trained, and comes when he’s called. He is a mellow dog that’ll be overjoyed to play ball or go running with you but is just as glad to hang out by your side and keep you company during quiet times and TV time. Lucky is approximately 2 years old, neutered, current on all shots, heart worm negative and a boxer mix breed who weighs 45 pounds. This dog will make a great family dog as well as a great pal for a single owner.

Summer was adopted by a wonderful family.

Summer’s Story:  Summer appears to be a hound/retriever mix and is approximately 5-7 months old. She is often calm and well behaved, but also has a fun, playful side. Summer has had no accidents in the house, can sit, and stay. Summer does not require a leash if you are a responsible owner and are walking her on low traffic streets. She will walk/run at the same speed as her owner and goes on 1.5 mile runs with no leash, staying with her current foster owner at all times. Summer plays GREAT with other dogs and is in a house with 4 others at the time. She is crate trained, meaning that she sleeps in her crate and is locked in it when no one is home. She loves her crate and often goes in there on her own free will to take naps. If you are looking for a pup that plays fetch, this is the one for you! Summer catches the frisbee in the air and brings in back and lays it down beside you. Fetch is one of her favorite things to do. Very little is known about Summer as she showed up at her current foster parents’ house one day and did not leave their front yard. She appears to have been very well taken care of – pretty coat, no fleas, trimed nails- and is very social and friendly with people of all ages She would be a great dog with kids who can run around in the back yard with her or a great companion for someone older. 



Charlie Dog

Charlie is living with his new Mom in her apartment. He’s the only dog so he gets all the attention now and loves it!  

Charlie’s Story:  He is between 2 and 3 years old and his breed is most likely Bichon Frise, maybe purebred or maybe with a touch of Poodle or Cairn Terrier – all breeds known for their desire to bond very closely with a human companion. Charlie is no exception, he’s sociable as can be and though he’s young and energetic, he would be a great dog for a senior, a couple or a single person, because he’ll adapt to your activity level. And he’d be perfectly happy being the only dog in the family.

Charlie walks well on a leash, loves riding in the car, sitting on the couch watching TV and of course chasing balls and playing with toys. But if you can’t get down on the floor and play tug or run around the yard, he’ll make up games to play himself and look up often to see if you’re entertained. He is a 20 lb dog who is happy living indoors and loves the outdoors. This little guy was rescued as a stray. He’d been hungry, exhausted and afraid for sometime, when a kind lady noticed him and asked True Blue Animal Rescue to help him. Surviving without humans is something that some breeds can adapt to just fine, but not so, for these little guys, like Charlie – bred to be peoples’ close companions. He needs to know that his human, home, food and bed are all his and he is a member of the family. Charlie’s TBAR foster was a single woman with a gentle female dog and he bonded with both right away. However, he would not thrive in a household with multiple dogs, especially male dogs and dogs bigger than he is.

Reuben (now Cub)

Reuben cub 2


Reuben had a hard time finding his forever home, but we are pleased that he now has a new mom and dad and two human sisters, a human brother, and a dog brother!  The whole family is in love with him and they are working with him on his manners, and all learning to practice patience when he forgets some of what he has learned.  Congratulations Reuben (now renamed Cub) and keep up the good behavior!
