BARC, Inc.

BARC, Inc. is a non-profit corporation dedicated to rescuing and rehabilitating Bernese Mountain Dogs from dog brokers, dog auctions, puppy mills, and any other dangerous, exploitative or abusive situation.  BARC, Inc. places these dogs in loving pet homes as spayed or neutered companions.

Adoptable Bernese Mountain Dogs



Angel is a sweet girl who is very confident and comfortable with people and other dogs alike. She has quickly acclimated to her foster sisters and is happiest when getting attention and playing. She is doing very well with her housebreaking …already going to the back door and making noise to tell us she needs to go out. She is doing well with her crate and has no problems sleeping in the crate when we are not with her. She is learning some basic commands (doing well with “sit” and we are beginning to train “down”) … she also walks pretty well on leash (especially when with the other dogs) and even does well coming when called. Angel will make someone very happy. If our house wasn’t full, we would never be able to give up this special girl. She is full of energy and has lots of love to give to her forever family.


Although safe, these dogs may be undergoing medical treatment, temperament testing, and/or foster placement for socialization.  If you are interested in one of our special babies, we ask that you read the FAQ’s and then complete the adoption application.  Questions and applications can be sent to our Board Member, Lisa Florin.    We have a high volume of applications to review and are very serious about where our rescues are placed, so please allow at least two weeks for our committee members to review the application.

Please also note, many of our rescues are placed quickly and don’t even make it to our website for posting…that’s a great thing!


Prior to placement all BARC dogs are:  spayed or neutered; microchipped; checked for heartworms and parasites and treated if necessary; brought up-to-date on all vaccinations, in some cases boosters may be necessary; and are on heartworm and flea/tick preventives.  In the event that a puppy is too young or a dog too ill to be spayed or neutered prior to placement, the contract will require the adopter to spay/neuter the dog within a reasonable timeframe.
