Bonnie and Clyde were two strays running through the Alabama woods, eluding everyone who tried to lure them. They must have been hungry, thirsty, and tired, but they still ran from those who would help them. Finally, after four weeks of trying to rescue them, the two were coaxed into the car of a woman who rescues strays from Alabama shelters, often before they are euthanized in gas chambers.
She immediately contacted us and asked if we could take in the pair of strays. Meanwhile, the two stayed at the home of the rescuer, where Clyde never lost sight of his girl, Bonnie, who was about to give birth.
Preparations were in place to bring the devoted pair north to Popcorn Park, but Bonnie’s pregnancy kept her from making the trip earlier this year, so Clyde came alone and waited. And waited. And waited for his Bonnie. Bonnie gave birth to and weaned nine healthy pups, all of whom went to a reputable Alabama rescue and eight weeks later, Bonnie finally was reunited with her companion.
The instant Clyde saw Bonnie, he went crazy with joy and enthusiasm. It took Bonnie a couple seconds before she realized it was Clyde jumping all over and around her. Then she no longer cared where she was or who these new people were, she, too, burst into joy to see him.
Bonnie and Clyde have been inseparable ever since. The pair is now looking for a family. Because of their circumstances, they will only be adopted together. After having been through so much together and having been finally reunited, they truly need and depend on each other. How could we separate a now infamous pair – Bonnie and Clyde!
