Adoption Options Dogs

The dogs listed here are in need of good homes

This is a resource that CBRR&R offers to people who are looking to find a new home for their dog and/or shelters seeking additional exposure for a Chesapeake Bay Retriever in their care. They are all direct placement from shelter or owner to new home.

What is an Adoption Option Dog

Adoption Options dogs consist of dogs that owners wish to place on their own or dogs we are unable to take in to our rescue program typically due to capacity.  We strongly encourage people to explore every possible alternative to surrendering their dog. Please research and clarify any concerns, costs, or anything else that may arise as a problem PRIOR to acquisition of a particular dog. We suggest you do this with all types of rescues/adoptions or purchases from breeders.

If you are interested in an Adoption Option Dog

Please directly email or telephone the person listed as the contact for the dog you are interested in. CBRR&R does not guarantee these placements.

CBRR&R Rescue Dogs

Fully Vetted Dog

All CBRR&R dogs are given a thorough examination including immunizations and tests for parasites. They will receive necessary medical treatment and will be neutered or spayed (very young puppies will be placed under a Spay-Neuter contract) before placement.

Temperament and Training

Often our dogs have lived in a foster home, have been evaluated on temperament and have even brushed up on some manners.


You will be able to reach out to your rescue volunteers for questions, advice and especially to share the success stories and pictures (we love that.) You and your new rescued Chessie will always be CBRR&R alumni & family.
