Dillon arrived at Bluebonnet on March 14, 2006. He was removed from negligent owners by law enforcement officials and then placed with BEHS by the humane society who saved him from a deplorable fate. Wendy Taylor rushed out to pick him up so we could find him a foster home. Bob and Cindy Rodocker volunteered to foster him and welcomed a thin yet beautiful Paint to their home. Under their care, he quickly gained weight and they began working with him. Before long, they had him carrying a saddle and seeking his “forever home”. He was such a pretty boy that it didn’t take long to find his home - Cindy B. adopted him on September 16, 2006 with great plans for his future. She spent time with him in training and came to love the gorgeous boy.

Sadly, Dillon passed away in a barn fire about a month ago. I know his “forever mom” is heartbroken - she loved Dillon and had huge plans for his future. His former “foster parents” Bob and Cindy are also heartbroken - Dillon had stolen their heart and they almost adopted him themselves.

Godspeed Dillon. And my condolences to Cindy B and Bob & Cindy R.
