MOONACRE SANCTUARY: Long term resident BONNIE the Rottweiler cross is now 7 years old. She was one of five pups born to a Segugio Italiano mum whom we received into our care in 2013. All the pups were gorgeous – four took after their mum and found homes without a problem, but no one wanted little BONNIE because she clearly took after her dad who was a Rottweiler.
Back at that time Rottweilers were getting a bad press so no matter how much we advertised BONNIE, she never received any adoption interest. After 3 years we stopped advertising her and accepted that this sweet natured dog would live out her life at MOONACRE with us.
BONNIE is a real beauty even now when her muzzle is turning grey. She has the most wonderful temperament, and is about as loyal and loving as a dog can be. She is a gentle dog, and we trust her with all the other dogs, cats, horses and pigs here.
These photos taken yesterday capture BONNIE’s character perfectly. We love her so much and feel lucky to have the opportunity to love and care for her throughout her life.
