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.
Being dedicated to the breed means
having a responsibility to its welfare!
