Rocky

(California)


Dog Story:

Rocky is a wonderful boy! He is a typical Brittany. He is sweet, wants to please and is eager to learn.  He has learned to use the doggie door, comes when called, sits for his meals and treats, and has learned to leave the house cat alone.

Rocky is a beautiful dog, and will make anyone a fabulous companion.

If you would like Rocky to join your family, please fill out the online  adoption application and mention Rocky.

 

Dog History:

Rocky's owner had to surrender him when he had to move and could not take Rocky with him.  Due to some good Samaritans, ABR was contacted and we were able to pick Rocky up and get him into foster care.

Captain

(California)

Dog Story:

Captain is a man’s dog and the ladies love him. He is as full of eagerness to be outside exploring as he is being inside and loving everyone in sight while waiting for his next belly rub. He spent his four years with a family who clearly treated him well but for lack of exercise. He has taken to long walks joyously and is always on the alert for signs of his next outing.

In addition to being a very handsome guy, Captain is well mannered, housebroken, crate trained, rides well in the car, gets along with other dogs and is eager to please. His first choice is to sleep in bed with you or snuggle on the sofa but also complies when his requests are denied. The many people who have met Captain remark how good natured he is and given his love for people he should be in a home as part of the family.

Due to diagnosed hip dysplasia, it is imperative that Captain be kept at his current weight of 45 pounds and continue on joint health supplements. He is a large Brittany and this weight might appear too slender but is necessary to protect his hips. His future family will have to be fully committed to giving Captain love in the form of hugs and exercise as treats cannot be allowed.

There is no documentation that Captain ever hunted or was trained to hunt. However, he was evaluated by a trainer specializing in hunting dogs. The trainer reported that Captain is not gun-shy, has a good nose, retrieved a bird on this first trip in the field and that he is “a very smart dog.” ABR thinks Captain would be a good match for a hunter who is out on a casual basis. Just to watch him you can see his hunter instinct in full display and how happy he is enjoying the sport. And Captain is a man of the water. He LOVES to swim which would help his hips stay in tip-top shape! Captain does not get along with cats and given his size and strength and the necessity to understand restrictions inherent in hip dysplasia, the children in the family should be older. Captain is an all-around pleaser and wants to be in the mix. His foster mother can attest that he is going to make a forever family very happy.

If you are interested in Captain, please fill out the online adoption application  and for more info call his foster dad.

Dog History:

Captain's family had medical problems and wanted to find him the perfect home so they surrendered him to ABR.

Oscar

(California)


Dog Story:

Oscar has been a jewel ever since he came to us even though he has a reputation of being an escape artist. Oscar has learned that cats are not toys and are not to be chased. Oscar loves to walk on a lead and does a great job. He knows sit, stay down, speak and lay down. It only took a week for him to learn what the house rules are here.

Oscar would love to find a home of his own as here he has to share the humans between 3 cats and 3 other dogs. Oscar has learned where the treats are and how to open the cabinet where they are kept! Oscar will also push to see how far he can counter surf. But all in all he is a great, active Brittany that would love his own family! 

If you think Oscar would be a match for you please fill out the online adoption application , mention Oscar and contact his foster father.

Dog History:

Oscar came to ABR from the San Diego Department of Animal Services. He had been in and out of the doggy jail a few times over the last few years.

Penny Lane

(Oregon)

Dog Story:

Hi my name is Penny Lane, I never thought I would be looking for a new home but here I am. I lived with my family for 8 years, we were all very sad to part ways but my little brother was very sick. The only way for him to get better was for me to pack my bones - so I have ABR to thank for helping me find a new home. 

I'm 10 years young and weight 35 lbs. I have the spirit of a puppy but the wisdom of  a senior. I'm past all the silly puppy stuff, I don't jump up or get on the sofa (well sometimes) and I love my crate, my blanket and stuffed fox. I know how to sit, stay, lay down, shake, play soccer, I like to play in water and am a master treat catcher. I do my "business" outside and will let myself out the doggy door. My family sent me with a list of my 15 favorite things, scratches under the collar and playing tug with my blanket are just two on the list. I walk smartly on a leash with a Gentle Leader otherwise I'm a typical Brittany and like to take you for a drag down the street. I like people of all ages, especially men; I think cats are boring once I meet them. I've been an only dog for a long time so I'm a little possessive of my toys, blanket and crate. I get along with most dogs but it would be best if we met first.

I have a mild heart condition that I take medication for, that just means that I'm not going to run a marathon but thats ok, I'm an expert snuggler. I also take medication for what mom calls incontinence cause I potty a little in my sleep - but with my medication I'm good as new. I'm otherwise a healthy, happy girl that would love to have a place at your feet.

Foster Mom here: Penny is a sweet girl that has been an only dog for a long time. She's a little possessive of "her" things, we're trying to work through it. We can tell Penny wants to play with the other dogs but is unsure, I think in time she will figure out no one is a threat. 

Penny had a recent vet exam and microchip, and is up-to-date on her vaccines. Penny takes 3 inexpensive presciptions daily:  Prion, Furosemide and Enalapril. 

Pennys family loved her very much and were heartbroken to have to give her up; through it all Penny has managed to keep a smile on her face and a wiggly tail. 

If you would like Penny to join your family please fill out the online  adoption application and mention Penny.

Dog History:

Penny was surrendered to ABR by her family.

Wesley

(Utah)

Dog Story:

Wesley is a typical young Britt, all legs and energy!! He is a really sweet boy who has not had very much training, so he is a diamond in the rough, a blank canvas. He is responsive to attention and will learn quickly because he is very smart. He just needs to learn the rules. If you have the time and energy to work with Wesley, he will make a great companion for you. He loves to play and wrestle with the resident Britt, so would be OK with a home that already has a dog, he is already learning some manners from his foster brother.

If you are interested in making Wesley your new best friend, just fill out the online adoption application  and call his foster dad for more details.

Dog History:

Wesley was an owner surrender as his owners were not prepared for his energy level. 

   

Brittanys usually live 12-15 years, so if you are contemplating adoption, please be prepared to make that kind of commitment to the dog. Brittanys love their people and require personal attention every day.

Dogs placed by American Brittany Rescue, Inc. have been rescued from a shelter, found as a stray, or given up by an owner who could no longer keep or care for them. All dogs in foster homes have been (or will be) spayed or neutered, checked for heartworm, and are usually on preventative medication for heartworm. A dog's foster family can give you valuable information about its personality and temperament.

There are many more Brittany's available but not yet listed on the web site. These pages are always changing as homes are found and new dogs are placed into rescue. Please contact the State Coordinator for more information.

If you know of a Brittany who needs a home, please contact your nearest State Coordinator for assistance.
