This form allows you to register your Chesapeake Bay Retriever so that he or she can be listed on the Adoption Options pages.  It is imperative that you inform us as soon as the dog is placed so that we can remove him or her from the listing of available dogs.

All dogs listed on Adoption Options must be spayed or neutered prior to being listed. This will prevent your pet from becoming breeding stock at a puppy mill. That is a horrible existence that we do not want any dog to have to experience. If you can not afford to spay or neuter your pet, there are many low cost spay/neuter programs that may be able to help.

Please fill out this form as completely as you can.  The more information (and pictures) you provide, the better your chances are that someone will respond to your listing and show interest in providing a new home for your dog.  Don't worry if you don't know all of the answers to the questions asked below - just fill in as much as you can.

Dogs that have not been spayed/neutered can not be listed. Litters of puppies can not be listed. The only exceptions are for shelters or other rescues that will alter the dog before placement. Please contact the AO page administrator before listing an unaltered dog.

In addition, you will receive more responses if you can send us a photo of the dog. You may send it via email (.BMP, .JPG, or .GIF format please) to
