Thank you for your interest in adopting a Bouvier des Flandres. The Bouviers we offer for adoption have been screened by those knowledgeable in the breed, and our goal is to find each Bouvier an excellent home. For each Bouvier adopted, we ask payment for actual expenses incurred or a minimum of $300.00.

To be considered as an adopter, please complete the following adoption application. We recommend that you read About the Adoption Process prior to filling out the application. When you have completed the application, please click Submit at the bottom of the form. Please note that your application will remain on file for one year.
