About BMDCA
Rescue & Rehome...

The BMDCA's Rescue & Rehome Committee works with Breeder Referral, Public Relations, and Public Education committees at both national and regional levels to offer accurate information to those interested in learning about our breed.


 


Rescue-Rehoming - FAQ's...

Many Bernese Mountain Dogs in need of new homes are rehomed by regional clubs.

The number of dogs in need of rescue services at any given time in a particular region is variable.

Most BMDs requiring rehoming come from owners who no longer are able to care for them because of changing life circumstances or issues with the dog’s health or behavior.

Some rescue dogs have health or behavioral issues that require special handling and management by experienced dog owners.

Rescue group representatives review adoption applications with the goal of making a workable match between adoptive owners and the dog.
