A ranch would not be a ranch without a resident Border Collie. Carol started fostering dogs for All Border Collie Rescue (ABCR) in 2010. Since that time, over 300 foster dogs have shared their lives with us and had great beginnings at BlissWood Bed and Breakfast Ranch prior to finding their Forever Home.

Give Back While Enjoying Your Ranch Vacation

If you’re looking to experience our Texas bed and breakfast while also giving back in a unique way, we encourage you to book our Solo Traveler Package to get paired up with one of our Border Collie rescues. While enjoying all the perks of a ranch vacation, you’ll also be accompanied by one of these canine companions during your stay. Giving these dogs love and attention is a wonderful way to give back, and fun too!

Enjoy your Texas ranch getaway while spending time with one of our
rescue pups, it’s a great way to give and receive a little puppy love.
