Adoptable Dogues

DDB Rescue does not have a “facility”, we have volunteers nation wide who open their homes to dogues in need. Each dogs location is listed in their profile.

Our Adoption fee has changed to a sliding scale, based on age and health which goes to cover their medical needs and spay/neuter. All of our rescues are spayed/neutered, up to date on shots and micro chipped before being placed. Completed application and reference/home check required. We do NOT ship or fly rescues as it’s too stressful on them. If you are interested in any of our rescues, please complete our adoption application.

As of August 15, 2018 our adoption fee has adjusted to the following sliding scale as expenses rise and we are not covering all of the needs with our adoption fee:

Puppies under a year old – $700.00

1yr – 2yr – $600.00

3yr – 5yr – $500.00

6yr – 7yr – $ 400.00

8 yr and older – $250.00

Dogues with ongoing medical issues – not including fospice dogues – these are dogues that had a rough life no matter how old they are and no matter how much we have put into their medical care- $150.00

Hospice Dogues are a case by case basis depending on the severity of the condition and life expectancy.

Bonded pairs may have a slightly reduced fee in order to get them adopted together, as decided on a case by case basis by the board of directors.

Information on adopting, including our application can be found here Adopting

The Dogue de Bordeaux Rescue needs volunteers and foster homes nationwide to open their homes to dogues in need. With a record number of Dogues needing to be rescued, our resources are stretched to the maximum. Puppies to Seniors are waiting to come into the program. The DDB Rescue assists abused, neglected, abandoned dogues from shelters and pounds as well as assisting owners who can no longer keep their dogue. If you can open your home and heart to a dogue in need, please check out our Foster Policy

Thank you for your support
