Pitter

(California)

Dog Story:

Meet Pitter! When I first met Pitter (as in Pitter Pat)  she was miserable with a severe flea allergy.  in spite of that, her sweet nature shone as she greeted me with licks and wagging tail.  After a trip to the vet and flea treatment, Pitter has that Brittany smile back and is settling into her foster family.  Pitter is very affectionate and loves following people around, snuggling at your feet.  She loves kids, she is good with other dogs and comes when called.  As a mostly outside dog, Pitter is still working on signaling when she needs to go out.  She loves walks and being petted.  Pitter has a lot of love to share!!!

If you think Pitter would be a great addition to your family please fill out the online  adoption application and mention Pitter. 

Dog History:

Pitter's owner passed away several months ago and the remaining family was struggling to provide for her.  Finally the family reached out to ABR.

Gunnar

(California)

Dog Story:

Meet Gunnar, or as he prefers, Gunnie. He just turned 6 and is a very handsome black and white French Brittany, about 40 lbs of sweetness and energy. He has had training and is housebroken, and crate trained. He will sleep fine in a crate but prefers to cuddle on the sofa, your lap, or on the bed with you.

Gunnar comes with his AKC papers. 

Gunnie has already had two homes so we are looking for a home that will truly be his forever home. He needs someone who is home with him all day as he does not like to be left alone for long periods of time (short periods are ok). He needs someone who can be firm and continue to work with him on leash manners and his barking. He bonds to his humans quickly and is very eager to please. He is protective of his toys (he loves chew toys and will catch things thrown to him) and can be food protective but is very receptive to being corrected.

Gunnie gets along fine with his brit foster brother, they love chasing the squirrels together), he has lived with children, cats and small dogs and should be fine with slow introductions and consistent training, but will probably not do well with large or strongly alpha dogs. He would be best with older children as he is a typical young energetic and bouncy brit boy.

This sweet boy deserves a good, loving home. If you are interested in giving him his forever home, please fill out the online adoption application . If you would like more information, please contact his foster family.

Dog History:

Gunnar was an owner surrender. His family said he was not a good fit for them

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.

Jag

(Utah)

Dog Story:

Meet Jag, a typical young Brittany pup. He is settling in to his foster home and looking for a forever home. He gets along with other dogs and is very good with small children. He will jump right up onto the sofa or the bed so he can lie next to you and cuddle. He really likes his belly scratched and will just fall asleep if you do it.

As with all young Britt pups, Jag could use some guidance and training to learn a few manners, but he learns fast.

If you are interested in Jag please fill out the online adoption application  and call his foster dad if you want more info.

Dog History:

Jag was surrendered to the shelter because his owners said he was too hyper. Imagine that, a Brittany with a lot of energy. So far he has been fairly mellow at his foster home, except for when he is wrestling with the resident Britt.

Bridger

(Utah)


Dog Story:

This sweet boy is Bridger. He was adopted three years ago and had a happy life until his owner died. He was dropped off at the Humane Society, not sure by whom. Luckily the HS contacted ABR from his chip number details of secondary owner. And that's how he came back to ABR.

Bridger is just a petite French Brittany who came to ABR in 2014 with AKC papers showing that his name was" Tully Bridger du Hunrunr". Of course, the person who left him at the shelter didn't leave those papers with him. Bridger weighs in at 29 pounds and that is all sweetness. He is great in the house, loves to get attention, even from my grandkids. He walks well on leash and travels well in the car. Bridger just needs a place to rest his head in his golden years which, judging by his activity level, could be quite a few.

If you could be Bridger's new forever home, just fill out the online adoption application and call his foster dad for any more info.

Dog History:

Bridger was in a shelter after his owner died and was rescued by ABR.

 

   

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.
