"BONNIE"
ADOPTED!!


Bonnie is a Great Pyrenees/Anatolian Shepherd mix who has special needs. She is about 2-1/2 years old and has been in foster care for half of her life. Bonnie deserves a forever home with special people who will be patient, kind, and gentle with her. In return they will get a dog who is the sweetest, most loving and loyal pet imaginable.


Bonnie has some fear and trust issues with people. She is not aggressive at all and has never shown signs of threatening people. However, she needs lots of time to get used to people and learn that they won’t hurt her.

It took Bonnie two weeks to even let her foster parents come near her. They had to approach her on their bellies with treats to even be able to touch her at all. Now Bonnie loves them completely, snuggles with them and tries to crawl in their laps. She has learned to trust these two people who care for her. A prospective adoptive family should be aware that she won’t immediately trust them and this behavior might be repeated. But she will learn to trust her immediate family and caregivers.


Bonnie has a lot of positive attributes. She is beautiful, with soft thick Pyrenees fur and a pretty face. She loves cats, and even tries to give them big kisses. She likes other dogs and would love another dog companion to play with. She is also a credible guard dog, barking in warning at unfamiliar cars and people approaching. She is not an escape artist – she has gotten out of the fence twice, and both times settled down in the front yard to wait for her people to come home after a short walk down the driveway. She will let people that she knows guide her and feed her, just not approach and pet her.

We don’t know why Bonnie is so shy and mistrustful, but it’s not a problem that will go away quickly, and in fact she may be like this for the rest of her life. She needs very patient, calm and loving people to provide her a home in which she feels safe and secure.

For more info on Bonnie please email Carleen anatolianrescue@yahoo.com

Please email all pictures to Carleen at anatolianrescue@yahoo.com

**Please be sure to put "2012 Calendar" in the subject line or in the email**

Ive copied/pasted an article below with tips on taking great pictures of your pets.

Im looking forward to seeing all of the great ASD pics this year!!


TIP #1: Be flash free

Turn off the flash on your camera. You don't need it and it flat-out ruins an image. Freeing yourself from on-camera flash photography is the best thing you can do to create better images. How, you ask, does a person capture their dog in a dark living room at night? The simple answer is: do not take pictures of your do in a dark living room at night.

We're talking about pictures you actually want to display, email to friends or enter in a calendar contest.

Wait for daylight and go outside where flash isn't needed anyway. When you head outside, look for open shade. A great spot is under a tree with just a bit of reflected light coming in an an angle. Direct sunlight causes animals to squint, in addition to washing out their beautiful fur color. Early morning hours or sunset are great times for pet portraits in beautiful light.



TIP # 2: Turn to Treats

If your pet is treat motivated, picture taking time is perfect for bringing out favorite treats. It's best to have a helper who can hold the treat above your pet's nose and drop it to the floor right before you snap the shutter--this will help ensure your pet is looking directly toward the camera when the picture is being taken. A favorite squeaky toy can also do the trick for getting that "tilted head" that is so cute.

If you're looking for action shots. a tennis ball is a terrific prop. Have your "assistant" throw the ball directly in front of your camera a few feet then get ready and get low. As our pet comes rushing toward you, snap the shutter making sure your camera is on a high shutter speed to freeze the action.

Most cameras have a "Shutter Priority" mode meaning you can set the shutter speed manually and the camera will adjust the f-stop. On many cameras it is represented by a "T" on the mode dial. I like 1/1500 of a second or higher when capturing action.



TIP #3: Look Toward The Light

If you have your heart set on taking your pet's picture inside, choose a north facing window. Window light is the best for capturing animals and people during daylight hours. Make sure your flash is off. Have your pet sit as close to the window as possible. Sometimes moving their doggy bed to that spot will help. Play the "treat game" and I think you'll be pleased with the images you take with just the available light.
