About Us

Finding Hope in Every Situation

BBR rescues predominantly brachycephalic (flat faced) breeds, such as various Mastiffs, English/French/American Bulldogs, Pugs, Boston Terriers and other “bully breed” dogs.  Our mission is to use our collective knowledge and experience to help our dogs develop trust, learn desired behaviours, and heal (physically or emotionally). Our goal is to provide the care and time needed to prepare unwanted animals for placement and to help them find responsible, committed, and loving new homes. Our rescue dogs come from municipal and provincial shelters that are highly over-populated, owner surrenders and even some puppy mill survivors.  No matter the situation, we do our best to find each of these dogs the most suitable home based on their specific needs.  We take a holistic approach to their well being, which primarily  factors their sentience.  We are deeply devoted to educating the public about force-free science based training methods, dog behaviour, body language, and nutrition.  We are passionate about discrediting the many myths that come along with rescue dogs, bully breeds, and the need for use of aversive training methods.

BBR does not have a physical shelter as of yet. Each dog that comes into our care is examined by a veterinarian, spayed or neutered, and brought up-to-date on all shots before being placed. We rely solely on donations to finance veterinary fees such as exams, vaccinations, medications, microchipping, and surgeries, as well as the day to day costs like food and supplies that our rescue dogs need while in our care.
