Frequently Asked Questions
1. I want to adopt from BBR. How can I do this?
Get all the information you need on adopting from BBR on our Adopt a Dog page.
2. I want to come meet your dogs. Is there a shelter where I can do this?
No, we do not have a kennel or shelter. All of our dogs are fostered in private homes. They are reacclimatized to family life and their temperament is assessed. After a brief foster period recommendations for placement are made based on information provided by our foster families. You can meet our dogs at events.
3. What does fostering entail?
Our fosters are required to provide a loving home and food, and agree to provide transportation for dogs to and from veterinary appointments, as well as attend events to get the dogs exposure. We would like for our fosters to be in close communication with us regarding the dog's well being; providing updates and pictures for us to share. Fosters are eligible to adopt but must make this decision immediately once the dog becomes available for adoption. Some foster dogs require more work than others when they come into rescue with some not being completely housetrained, having bad skin/ear infections, etc. and fosters should be aware of and prepared for these possibilities.
4. Can I please adopt a puppy?
No, sorry, we generally only get dogs that are 3+. Most rescues do not get puppies unless they have serious health problems like spina bifida, cleft palate, heart deformations etc. Occasionally we do have younger dogs (1-3 years old). We'd be happy to recommend reputable breeders if you're looking for a puppy.
