The following Brittanys are available for adoption directly from local shelters or other rescue organizations because there are no ABR rescue volunteers close or there is no room available for them in ABR foster homes.

Please note: Our information on these dogs is very limited. We offer this as a service to Brittanys in need, but the health or temperament of these dogs has not been assessed and cannot be guaranteed by American Brittany Rescue. Please check with the shelter contact to find out what kind of screening has been done and to find out more about the dog.

Please e-mail us if you adopt a dog listed on this page, so we can keep our information current. Thank you!

 Meet the very loving General! He is such a cutie pie. General is about 5 years old and is a male Brittany Spaniel or Brittany Spaniel mix.  He weighs just 36 pounds so the perfect medium sized dog. General is a very friendly guy and what I noticed most about him is how LOVING AND AFFECTIONATE he is. He loves to give and get kisses and he loves to be hugged. He just cannot get enough attention. Such a sweet temperament and well behaved. He seems to have a lot of energy so an active family with a fenced in yard would be best for him so he can run and play.  That seems to be indicative for the breed. So while he would love to rest his head in your lap and get cuddled, he also needs a lot of exercise and play time.  He does do well with other dogs and is heartworm negative. He is such a happy and fun dog that will make a wonderful addition to your family. You may contact Ottawa Vet in Ottawa, IL where he is located by calling Kathy at 815-433-1206 or email Janice at

'Almost Home... Until They Are All Home For Good'Spaniel mixCJ is a handsome 3 year old Brittany Spaniel/Lab mix that came to us as a stray. He was orginally from the shelter when he was just a little puppy. He is current on vaccinations except for rabies, microchipped, and has tested negative for heartworm. He has a lot of energy, so a home with a fenced in yard would be best for him. CJ could also use some obedience training.He must go to a home with no other pets because he likes to be the king of the house! CJ is currently in a foster home so if you would like to meet CJ please call and set up an appointment!Adopting a pet is a lifetime commitment. December 19, 2015, 2:57 am

My name is Morgan (grace Grip). I was born on a farm in Illinois. I was aprox 6 months when the AKC sent me my pedigree papers.Ok, enough being a show off. I am a somewhat senior of 10, I love stuffed animals, walks ,being outside. I am house broken,I like to go to creeks but now I need a vest and supervision. I would do best in a home with just parents and maybe older kids. I am a special needs pup. I am blind. But given love and space you will have my heart. I'm not sure about being around other animals due to my blindness ( fear and security I suppose)kids might be ok if they understand that they must let me come to them or not to touch me when I'm resting (it scares me) I might over react.
I  a very nice lady and " oh yes, I almost forgot " Before I say goodbye, there's 1 thing you should know about me. "I love to be....... Vacuumed.
Thanks, your BFF Morgan
ps I've been to the vetty and am heartworm negative and utd on my vaccinations. 

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.
