Madison

(Alabama)


Dog Story:
Well, drat! Here I am again. Some of you might remember me from the spring. We all thought I had the perfect home but you know - stuff happens. Lucky me! Herself took me right back. I've been cleared to look for a new home by both my favorite vet and Herself. Though Herself says I still need a little work to smooth out the rough edges.

As you can see, I'm the world’s most handsome three-legged dog. I'm very active so I will require outside supervision since we see what happens to me left to my own devices. Herself says for obvious reasons I need a fenced yard. A lot of exercise with a devoted walker would also do. I like to stay busy with my business, your business, I really don't care.

I'm also a snuggle bunny and have great house manners. Like all Casanovas I start out coy and shy and then WHAM! you uncontrollably can't live without me. I like other dogs, particularly the ladies, wink, wink. I have what Herself calls a healthy respect for cats and little bitty dogs.

So if you need a boy to share your adventurous trip to the relatives’ house, maybe be a conversation starter for that holiday party, or a companion for your busy life, here I am … And I'm game for anything. Waiting in Alabama, Madison

p.s. I don't like washing machines so please don't put my bed near one. And I really think I would like little people.

Ok folks. No one wanted to put me under their Christmas tree and I know that Christmas money is burning a hole in your pocket. So how about taking me to your New Years Eve party? With only three legs I’m a real conversation starter. Plus you’ll earn all kinds points for not only adopting a rescue with a great back story but a three legged one at that. If you are worried about the only three legs thing don’t be. I get around just like a four legged dog. Though I do look like a bunny when I’m running. It is kinda funny. And I know things! I can sit and stay and sleep on the bed and sometimes even down. My come is coming along as is my walking on a leash. But that one is a little tough since I have to move a little fast or I tip over. Yeah, go ahead and laugh.. between the tipping and the bunny run I will always keep a smile on your face. So how about it? Am I your New Years resolution? Yours truly, Madison

History:
Madison came into rescue from animal control where he languished through a stray hold with a complete fracture of his upper arm just above his elbow after being hit by a car. And for whatever reason, either from being hit or the delay getting help, the nerve damage was not repairable so the limb was amputated. Being a real champ, Maddy was soon up and running, no longer slowed by the dangling leg. He is neutered, micro-chipped, up to date on vaccinations, heartworm negative and on preventative. If you’re looking for a busy boy who is also a champion snuggler, please complete an adoption application and mention Madison.

McGee

(Florida)


Dog Story:
Greetings, my name is McGee!  I am one of the luckiest rescue Britts around, and also unlucky in a way, but my life has already changed for the better.  I came from a rural shelter in Alabama as a stray.  The fantastic shelter staff couldn’t believe someone didn’t come looking for me, so ABR was called and took me in.  Then I got on my own private airplane – two wonderful volunteer pilots flew me in their plane from Alabama to Florida, and I was such a lucky passenger enjoying my time on wings! 

I am also really lucky because I’m in a foster home with a loving family that wants to adopt me once I get better!  But I’ve also had a rough time of it because we found out I have something called hip dysplasia.  My left hip is especially in need of fixing, since my joints have worn down making my hind end weak, and I can’t do much exercise or activity like young Brittanys should.   

The good news is I have awesome vets that have checked me out and can help fix me up!  I’ve had all sorts of poking and prodding and stretching, even laying still like a good boy on the table for x-rays (most dogs just get cute pictures of their outsides, but guess they wanted to see what my insides look like too!)  When they did x-rays, the vets saw my bad hip right away, and also that I have been shot.  Not sure how I ended up with those pellets in me, but they don’t bother me.  It’s just my hip that needs fixing, and ABR wants to make sure I can live the best healthy life.  I will need surgery to repair my left hip joint, and my foster to adopt family is going to take great care of me as I recover from surgery.  I could really use some Brittany Buddy friends to help with my vet expenses as I get back in good shape.  I finally get to be in a real home for the holidays, and I’m so excited that soon I will be a healthy boy again!  Sending Britt hugs and kisses – Love, McGee

History:
McGee is a darling, affectionate Brittany sweetheart who has weathered rough times in his young years.  We don’t know much about his past, but even with his stiff hip and birdshot along one side, McGee greets every day with a relaxed smile and a passion for life.  He has never met a stranger and loves all the attention he’s been missing, belly rubs and gentle walks around the yard, and celebrated his first Thanksgiving in a real home with his foster to adopt family. 

McGee’s x-rays showed he has bilateral hip dysplasia, causing lameness and muscle atrophy in his back end with the hip joints grinding together.  His left hip is especially degraded and will require surgery to restore movement in the hip joint, allowing him to do normal exercise and motion without pain.  McGee has been evaluated with an excellent team of orthopedic veterinarians and will have expert care for his hip replacement.  We are thankful that surgery will be able to help this sweet boy, and want to ensure McGee has the quality of life he deserves to enjoy a healthy life without pain.  All Brittany Buddy donations for McGee will go directly towards helping with his medical costs, and we are incredibly grateful for the generous supporters who make it possible for ABR to help rescue Brittanys in need live their best life!

Murphy

(Florida)

Dog Story:
My name is Murphy and I will turn 2 years old in April. I am a very, very handsome and funny boy, still a puppy who likes to play. I like my foster home because there are two other Brittanys (and The Lady is OK, too). They have been showing me the ropes.

My brother and I came to ABR after being dropped off at a shelter. We were left on our own for 18 months with very little human contact; it was just my brother and me. ABR quickly separated us and I have been adjusting to life in a home. I get 2 meals a day, treats, a lot of affection and plenty of playtime.

I have made enormous progress! I come to my name (most of the time) and I enjoy daycare, dog parks, rides in the car, long walks, running in the yard and lounging around the house. I am not destructive or aggressive and I am potty-trained. I like lots of attention right now but The Lady thinks I will become a typical puppy with continued love and training. I need to find a family who is patient. I still am learning to adapt to structure and a home with rules. I need someone who can train me starting with basic commands. I still have trouble fully trusting The Lady but she keeps trying. I think I would do well in a house with another dog; however, younger children may slow my progress.

Murphy is neutered, utd on vaccinations, heartworm negative and on preventative. If you’d like to share your love and life with this sweet boy, patiently helping him become all that he has the potential to be, please complete an adoption application and mention “Murphy-5726”.

Horus

(Florida)


Dog Story:
Who is Horus? First of all: a total love bug who just wants to be near you, leaning into you! Second: a fearless hunter of lizards and squirrels! Third: a totally delightful companion who is house broken and crate trained. What Horus is not: a hunting companion (gun shy), a loner (he needs his person nearby most of the time). Horus came to Florida from Spain in the summer of 2017. The past months have been a sea change for him: from a stray trying to survive in a hostile environment to an indoor companion with a jolly pack of bird dogs (setters, Springer, another Britt), little dogs and horses. He is thriving now with good food, living indoors in a special, comfy dog-centric room where they can all relax and still be part of the human family and a large fenced yard to run/play in. Horus has not lived with children but has been around the foster’s grandchildren. He is still an exuberant young boy so is not a good match for a home with young children. Horus has enjoyed having canine sibs so would do best in a home with at least one other dog. He would love a home where his people are either retired or work from home.

History:
Horus was rescued as a stray in Spain and has thrived beautifully settling into his ABR foster home Horus is neutered, current on vaccinations, microchipped, leishmania and heartworm negative, and on heartworm and flea/tick preventive. If you are interested in Horus, please submit an adoption application and mention Horus-5665. The adoption fee for international rescues is $450.

Holly

(North Carolina)

Dog Story:
OK- so I am just about the most beautiful liver and white Brittany you have ever, ever seen!! BUT- wait right there! You need to hear more about me before you fall over backwards in love with me. I am young, so don’t blame me for being so enthusiastic about life, and needing some guidance and obedience work. I am willing to learn…but in the meantime, here is what my foster parents have to say about me.

One thing about Holly is how social and playful she is- just lots of fun and wants to play and play, so a younger and playful canine companion would be a good fit for her. Holly can be a mischievous young one. She loves to play with, and chew on hard rubber toys and bones. She may find interest in inappropriate items in the household if she is not corrected for any negative behavior. Holly is also very “birdie” and loves to be outside, where it is all about the birds and squirrels, etc. She is extremely alert and inquisitive. She is an athlete who can play with friendly dogs twice her weight. Holly will need a secure, dog-proof fence.

The vet has found Holly to be fit and healthy at 30 lbs. We would love to find a home for Holly where she is not crated all day, with at least one adult being home for a good part of the day, or working from home. Please submit an adoption application if you are interested in hearing more about Holly

History: 
Holly was picked up as a stray and brought to the Humane Society in Winston-Salem, NC. They were overcrowded but they gave her extra days to see if someone would come to claim her. That did not happen though, and by taking Holly into ABR ASAP, another spot was open for another dog in need.

Xavi

(North Carolina)


Dog Story:
 Hello American Friends: I am Xavi (short for Xavier) and I am new to your country. I traveled here from Spain just before Thanksgiving. My foster family loves me. I live with my foster mom and her two American Brittany girls. One of them is really bossy but I like her anyway. Her sister is my best friend. We love to play chase and cuddle with one another and the foster mom. I haven’t met any cats up close yet but I’ve barked at some through the fence. I’ve met a lot of people of all sizes and get along great with them. I ride quietly in the car and sleep quietly all night long in my crate. I’ll go right in the crate to get my bedtime cookie. I am a healthy, happy, and house trained boy. I was very quiet at first, maybe I had jet lag. But after a few days, I really began to enjoy running around after the big girls and enjoy playing chase sooooo much. I also like toys, especially the flat kind that crunch. I get a little scared when I am around new and noisy things like doors that open automatically at Tractor Supply but I loved walking all around the store. I was also a good boy at the vet. I love to follow my foster mom around. She likes to cuddle with me too and says I fit perfectly behind her knees when we read books (and nap) on the sofa. She says I am handsome and most likely a French Brittany with maybe a little something extra. I just turned two years old and I only weigh about 20 pounds. I am pretty good on walks but she recommends that I wear a harness.  My foster mom says I am the sweetest foster she’s ever had but she has to love me enough to let me go to another family that needs my love. I’ve decided that I really like America and want to be a citizen so I hope someone reading this will be my forever family.

History: 
Xavi is one of ABR's rescues from Spain. He was pulled from a kill shelter just one day before he was scheduled to be put down. There is just no space for these dogs in their native country, and no resources to advocate for them except when they know that ABR can partner with them to help.

Mary

(North Carolina)


Dog Story:
“Love me, nurture me, and help me to build up my confidence”. 
Mary is in a loving foster home, but with 4 other dogs and lots of kid activity, she is really hoping for a home and family of her own where she can settle into a routine and not have to share everything and everyone.  She has a hard time relaxing in her current environment, and she came from a similar, busy environment in Spain, before taking her overseas voyage to the US. 

Mary does well with other dogs and kids, but no cats please.  She is such a sweet dog and we would love to find her a home where she can relax, settle and share the love with a single person or couple. Mary is healthy, approximately 33 lbs, and has a beautiful orange roan coat.

Please submit an adoption application if you are interested in hearing more about Mary.

History:
Mary came to ABR from Spain, where she waited very patiently for a plane ride to the U.S where we had a caring foster home waiting for her. She is now waiting for her forever home.

Rosie

(North Carolina)

Dog Story:
Rosie and her companion Luigi are a very bonded pair and will be adopted together. According to her foster mom, Rosie is so, so charming and it is easy to fall in love with her. Rosie came into rescue Heartworm positive. Over the last few months she has completed her treatment and is ready to stretch her legs in the yard with Luigi and her family of kids and furry companions she is currently living with. Rosie is admittedly a counter surfer and will need some corrections to deter that. Both Luigi and Rosie are good car riders, so they will be ready to go on their next adventure to their forever home. Her foster home- kids, adults and furry ones alike will miss them dearly, but the foster home will be ready to help another Britt (or two) in need.

If you are interested in Rosie and her companion Luigi, please submit an adoption application .

History:
Rosie and Luigi came into foster care after their owner passed away. Fortunately, a family member was kind enough to take them in, contacted ABR, and held onto them until we were able to find a foster home who could take both of them.

Corazon

(Virginia)


Dog Story:
Hola! My name is Corazon (my heart in Spanish) and I flew all the way from Spain to capture YOUR heart. Just check out my irresistible nose. I have the most unique nose of all Brittany Spaniels in America. I want nothing more in life than to cuddle next to you when you are watching TV or sleeping in bed. My zoomies in the back yard are strong. I love running in circles tossing my stuffed toys around.

I have an extremely strong bond with my foster mom- my foster dad- I'm still warming up to him (males can be scary). When she leaves, I get worried and wait eagerly by the door for her to come back. I would do best with a fur sibling to help with my separation anxiety. Crates aren't for me. I’m also working on my house manners, after living on the street, I've learned to seize the opportunity- especially when it comes to my humans meals they leave on the table. My foster mom is working on exposing me to the world while on a leash, however the outside world is a scary place. I need a human who can love me and help build my confidence.

Who is going to be the lucky human to take me home and get all the wet doggie kisses?

History:
ABR rescued Corazon through our International program. These lucky dogs have had a rough life and have found good fortunes in the US through this program. Corazon has been in a foster home and is ready to settle into a lucky foster home. No Spanish required!

 

   

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.
