Mims and Merlin (We have crossed the Rainbow Bridge)

Posted in Uncategorized at 9:24 pm by Administrator

Mims and Merlin are a true brother sister pair now 15 years young.  Their dad died very unexpectedly at a young age and the family was unable to provide for them and asked Lone Star to help out. And even though they are not Lhasa or shih tzu we could not pass up helping these beautiful dogs. Mims is a fun loving girl that loves people!  Merlin is a little shy but is intent on getting love when he needs it.  They get along great with other dogs although Merlin is somewhat an alpha. These two are a pair and love to go walking on a double leash. Check out their Petfinder pages here, Mims & Merlin.  Or, read their BLOG HERE.

Meet the infamous Lawson Turner.  He is the most adorable puppy you have ever seen.  He’s almost 5 months old & weighs 6 lbs now.  Unfortunately, he had congenital eye cysts and had to have both of his eyes removed. Lawson is learning all the things this world has to offer a blind dog. He is progressing nicely and we’re even beginning to housbreak.  He’s playful, loves everyone & other dogs.  Two of his favorite things are laps and his red & white “blankie”, that was lovingly knitted for him by a Lone Star supporter.  Lawson may need a young sighted dog  as a playmate and a mom or dad who is home a lot.  He’s bright & eager to learn.  Are you up to training this precious baby to be the best dog & companion?  It’s not that different than training a sighted dog.  He will reward you with kisses everyday.  Your life will be forever enriched with Lawson in it.  He will be ready for adoption Feb. 20.  Get your application in now so you can be the lucky family who adopts Lawson.

Lawson was named after Byron Lawson, a long time devoted foster from Austin, who was recently taken from us by cancer.  His dedication to dogs and Lone Star Rescue was a shining example of true generosity & love. Byron was a very special person and is greatly missed by all who knew him.



 We also did a little “painting” of our Lawson to show off his cute face.  Ok, no eyes, but isn’t he special!

This week we feature Bok Choy. This little lady came out of a Houston shelter in such a mess. Her skin was black and hardened, she was missing hair along her back and was in a daze from all the neglect she had endured. But after months of good food, supplements, baths and living indoors, Bok has blossomed into a lovely lady.

To honor little Bok, we had a nice oil-style portrait done of her.  We hope you enjoy her portrait and APPLY TO ADOPT Bok.

Take a look HERE to see what Bok looked like the day we picked her up from animal control.

Like the painting?  You can get one made of your dog HERE.  And proceeds benefit our rescue!!

On this Super Bowl Sunday we are honor Cori Grand as our Super Fluff of the Week. Cori was found abandoned and filthy last Summer. Under all the dirt we found a super sweet boy who loves attention and likes to play with his foster friends. Cori is a little shy when he meets new people and it takes him time to warm up to them.  Cori has much love to give to the right family. So go check out Cori’s Petfinder Page.
