Adoptable Bernese Mountain Dogs
DAISY | ADOPTED
Daisy is a very, very friendly girl, and she loves attention. She is also very playful. She is about 5 years old, and a pretty, big girl at 90 lbs! She even seems to know sit and shake. She also walks perfectly on a leash. She is friendly and playful with the other dogs, and she doesn’t mind the cat in the slightest.
All in all, a great dog. Pretty darn close to a “turn key,” ready to go! I think she would be fine in a home with kids (might even like a home with kids to play with). This is really a dog where you can physically see the toll being a puppy mill mama took on her, but it is just amazing how wonderful her temperament is given the circumstances she came from. Love dogs!
BILLY | ADOPTED
LYDIA | ADOPTED
Hi! My name’s Lydia. Some people might think that I’m kind of funny looking but my foster mom tells me that I’m adorable! She also says that I’m not photogenic (whatever that is). Somebody even said that I have “bat ears”. I don’t know about that but my foster mom told me that people made fun of Rudolph for his red nose and he saved Christmas!!! Maybe I’ll get to do something special with my ears that will make people realize that I’m special too!!!
LEXI | ADOPTED
Lexi is a happy, 22 month old female who loves people and craves attention. She has only been in foster care a short time, but is quickly adapting to crate training and house training. She enjoys soaking up every pet and scratch and snuggle she gets, and she likes playing with toys. She can be a bit unsure in a new setting, but she adjusts quickly. Even when unsure of a situation, her tail doesn’t stop wagging. Lexi gets along fine with the resident dogs and cats in her foster home. She will be a fabulous addition to some lucky family!
GEORGE | ADOPTED
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.
