Hello: We can be contacted by email at firstname.lastname@example.org . We have a Facebook page ( St. Bernard Rescue Foundation INC - NE & beyond )as well as a web site ( www. First HopeRecue.com) We are mostly a Saint Bernard rescue, but we try to help many dogs in need. So we will have other breeds for adoption. Also, we have connection with may dogs in need, so if you need help finding a dog please, email and would love to help with finding the right fit. Because all dogs are Saints but only one breed is a Saint Bernard! When looking for a forever home we look at the applicants that we already have applications from first so please follow this link for our application: click here
We look at applications as a dog comes in so the dog might be able to find a home without being posted the application is not binding and not long to fill out. We see the application as very important but also talking and matching the right dog with the right person and the right person with the right dog as VERY important.
FYI: When a dog is listed as good with children we need to remember that these dogs possibly out weigh the child that they live with, and possibly the child will be eye to eye with the dog. Therefore it needs to be remembers that these dogs are still animals and will react to pain or discomfort in anyway. The dogs also have temptations like many of us and have trouble restraining themselves ie.. Children with food in their hands or waking on a leash and al of the sudden have a desire to go another way (could you child control that, well maybe they can't walk the dog for awhile until the dogs habits are known.) Many times we see "accidents" that could have been prevented but the dog gets blamed. So even though in our society we tend to personify a pet due to the bond that is formed with them. We look for people and families that want that bond! We need to remember that these are large dogs and love them that we also protect them from anything happening.
