Jack is a nine-year old, 85-pound, pure bred, spayed male black Bouvier. He has lived with the same family and Libby (bio below) since he was a pup, but now his family has moved into a high-rise condo with restrictions, and the elevator is not growing on him, no matter what! He has some grey in his beard but seems fit and healthy otherwise. All of his shots are up to date. Although he lives in the city, he is a country dog at heart who loves the outdoors, and is a great watch dog as well. He loves taking walks, chasing squirrels, and napping in the backyard. He is friendly to family and visitors, including two small dogs. He also generally plays well with others at the kennel where he is regularly boarded. He will sit, stay, and come on command, though a treat (usually a dog biscuit or a piece of cheese) is needed for encouragement to do that! We are assessing whether Jack and Libby must be placed together or if they can be separated. They are being fostered in San Antonio, Texas. To be considered as an adopter, please fill out an application on line. For more information on Jack and Libby, email Dagi or leave a voice mail for her at 210-289-4463.

Libby is a beautiful 8-year old, 80-pound, fawn/blond, pure bred, spayed female Bouvier. All of her shots are up to date. She has lived with the same family and with Jack (bio above) since she was young puppy. She is happy go lucky, calm, and friendly to all. She loves kids, pets, and everyone, basically, but is quite protective of her food - this pertains to Jack/other dogs - so should be fed in a separate area. Otherwise, Jack and Libby are very good friends and enjoy being with each other. She loves to be petted and prefers to stay indoors unless the weather is cool. Stairs are becoming a challenge for her, but they are still manageable for now. She rings a bell at the door when she needs to relieve herself. Like Jack, she loves walking on leash and is well behaved with people and other dogs. She will also sit, stay, and come on command. but she is the more "free spirited" one of the pair. We are assessing whether Jack and Libby must be placed together or if they can be separated. They are being fostered in San Antonio, Texas. To be considered as an adopter, please fill out an application on line. For more information on Jack and Libby, email Dagi or leave a voice mail for her at 210-289-4463.

My name is Gypsy and my name means traveler; I am on a journey to find the perfect home! I am a striking girl with typical Bouvier charm, cropped ears and a docked tail. I am five years old, the perfect age! I have had a rough road in my travels and had been abandoned and fed junk food by my first owner. Through no fault of my own I grew very fat and had a horrible skin condition. I was very lucky because I was rescued by a lovely lady with a big heart! She got me healthy and happy and fit and trim and I had a nice home and fenced in yard. Due to life-changing circumstances, she has to relocate and I am not able to travel with her. I was her first Bouvier so I taught her how loving a Bouvier can be and how very protective I am. As all travelers do, I carry baggage from my past... it is important that you know all about me. Like many Bouviers, I have a *very* high prey drive. This means absolutely no other small animals in my adoptive home. Also, in the past I had a bad experience with other dogs so I must be the only dog in my new home. I am very strong and if I see any other animals on our walk, be prepared. Training me to accept a head halter like a Gentle Leader is probably a good idea. I require a Bouvier savvy home - absolutely no beginners for me! I also need a fenced-in yard to run and play in, but I am happiest inside snuggling next to my person.. I am loyal and loving and want nothing more than to protect you from cats and squirrels and lizards and anything else that moves! I am already spayed, and current on vaccinations. I want someone of my own to share the path ahead. I am currently being fostered in Cleveland, Ohio. To be considered as an adopter, please fill out an application on line.

ADOPTION PENDING. Pepper, maybe not even 2 years old, came to us as a cruelty case from Austin, TX. She appears to be a Bouvier mix, 75 lbs. trim. She is heartworm negative, up to date on vaccines, and spayed. She is very laid back for her age, eager to please, smart as can be, and ready to be either a lug on the rug or your hiking buddy. We do think that she was someone's beloved pooch at one time and learned a few things along the way... and, as a result, she is a STEAL! We are working on leash training, and she is getting better every day. Pepper knows basic commands, like sit and shake, comes when called 95% of the time, has no food aggression, keeps her crate clean and just loves to be next to you. We are not 100% sure what she is, but she is BIG, and there may be some Irish wolfhound in her, but appears to have so many Bouvier traits... wow! She is fine with other dogs, and shows no aggression, but she is a big bull dozer who is interested in squirrels and cats - not transfixed - but she will give chase. We think she would be perfect as an only dog, because once she makes you her person, she wants to be where you are: By your feet, cleaning floors while you cook, by your side while you walk, watching TV with you, and ready for that pat on the head and praise! Her foster family thinks she is amazing for her age, and will be an awesome dog to the right home and person. To be considered as an adopter, please fill out an application on line.
