Fospice & Special Needs Dogues

The below listed dogs are in Fospice (Hospice Foster). This is due to advanced age or poor health, which makes them less adoptable to the average person looking to add a Dogue de Bordeaux to their family. Each dogue on this page has a “reduced” adopt fee if they are adoptable. Either way, we will care for them as long as they are in our program. These dogues will live their lives out in the loving homes of our volunteers and DDB Rescue will continue to support them.
Caring for advanced age or not so healthy giant breed dogs, takes money. Rescue has put thousands of dollars into each of these dogs. If you could help our “Fospice Program”, please send your tax deductible donation can be sent to: DDB Rescue, PO Box 270113, Hartford,WI 53027 or via paypal to donate@ddbrescue.org
