There are two main sources of rescued Bouvier available for adoption in southern California. One is SCBDFC's rescue program, and that information is on their website. The other is my friend Kareen Carruthers, who is an independant Rescuer, using part of her boarding kennel to house rescued dogs. Because it is impossible for me to keep current with dogs in foster care with these two programs, you must phone or e-mail as indicated below. Be sure to contact both of them.
As they come to my attention , I will also list Bouviers rescued and fostered by other organizations and individuals. I also have a few stories of dogs already adopted.

There are two main sources of rescued Bouvier available for adoption in Southern California. I urge those potential adopters who live in Southern California to check with both these sources before considering looking in Northern California. Those of you in Northern California who aren't finding the dog you seek up here, please do consider that the drive to the greater L.A. area takes only a day, and the supply of adoptable Bouvs is larger there than it is here.
I find that it is really impossible for me to keep this page current with dogs in foster care in Southern California. But at any given time, each of the sources below usually has one to sevral really nice foster Bouviers waiting for loving and responsible homes. Please phone or e-mail as indicated below for current information. Be sure to contact both sources, as they don't always update each other currently.
Petfinder.com at http://www.petfinder.com is almost always the best place to begin your search. In addtion to searching for dogs whose identified breed is Bouvier, you might also want to look at those dogs identified as other breeds commonly confused with Bouvier : Giant Schnauzer, Black Russian Terrier, Briard, Bearded Collie, Old English Sheepdog, "Sheepdog" , and Poodle mix. Shelters often will list a dog as a Bouvier mix when the photos show a poorly groomed or ungroomed Bouvier or a Bouvier with natural ears or natural tail, ie a Bouv who does not look enough like the photos of well groomed conformation champions that appear in the breed description books.
Again, it's really impossible for me to keep current with dogs available from these other sources.
UPDATE : Sadie dissappeared off of the hugadog page , so it is likely she got adopted. One can only hope that she got a responsible and knowledgeable home.
