BMDCC NATIONAL RESCUE PROGRAM

 

The Bernese Mountain Dog Club of Canada is actively involved in the rescue of Bernese Mountain Dogs in distress or ones that require re-homing. We have a large network of people across the country that are dedicated to helping any Berner in need.

Under normal circumstances, most Berners that are "rescued" by the BMDCC are sent to a foster home for a three to four week period. During this time the dog is assessed for possible re-homing. We review basic obedience, temperament evaluations, reaction to children and adults, housebreaking, etc. The dog is bathed, groomed and taken to a veterinarian for a health check , vaccinations, and neutering. It is a requirement that all dogs in the Rescue are neutered prior to leaving our care. 

If the dog appears to be a successful candidate for re-homing, we then select a suitable family for the adoption of the dog. If you are interested in adopting a rescue dog please review the Rescue Questionaire - Adoption Form and contact Maureen Greaves.

Being dedicated to the breed means having a responsibility to its welfare! Check out our Adopt A Dog page to see if we are looking to find a forever home for a rescue!
