BDR reserves the right to adopt our dogs to families with children over the age of 8 years old provided we have a dog that is a suitable match for children. We may consider adopting to families with younger children if we have a dog that we know has lived with a family that has children of that age.
A fence is required to adopt most dogs from BDR. A secure physical fence, that is adjacent to the home and fenced on all sides, is preferred. Invisible fence will be considered, some exceptions do apply but will be judged on an individual dog basis. BDR will not adopt to a home using a doggy door with invisible fence. Nor will BDR adopt to a home where invisible fence is used near a busy road.
BDR reserves the right to require a fenced yard for specific dogs in our care.
Only mature, settled dogs will be considered for homes without a fenced in yard.
We do not allow dogs to be adopted to homes that perimeter train.
Tie outs, dog runs and kennels are not acceptable forms of a fence.
BDR will not make exceptions to the above policy based on large yard, acreage or farm land. The entire property does not have to be fenced in, just a portion large enough for play and potty trips.
