All the fine print up front:  Adoption of a BBCR dog includes spay/neuter, microchip, age appropriate vaccines (to include rabies, DA2PPV, and bordetella), and a heartworm test (also treatment, if positive for heartworm within 6 months of adoption.) Adopters will be responsible for any vaccinations due after adoption.

Please note: you are adopting a dog in “as is” condition. We do not know a back story on many of our dogs, we may be able to help with things that may come up but we cannot guarantee perfect heath or other issues. As these arise, please contact us – but understand – after adoption it is your responsibility to care for your dog. Submission of an adoption application does not guarantee a specific dog. We often receive many applications for each dog. Breed designations are not guaranteed, as we do not DNA dogs. A 5% service fee will be added on to the cost of adoption regardless of method of payment. All of our dogs are located along the Front Range of Colorado and Cheyenne, WY. While we do adopt out of state, we require adopters to travel here to meet dogs prior to adopting.  We do not ship dogs.
