Dog Story

 Hi,  I'm  a love bug Brittany mix straight from Greece!  I am as cute as cute can be, I'm a petite girl, with shorter legs, or so I'm told.  I'm getting the hang of the doggie door to go potty,  I love playing with my brothers, but oh how I love to snuggle . . . I'm hoping for a family who has lots of time to train a smart little girl like me.  I love company so I'm really hoping for a family with another doggie. 

Do you have time for a sweet puppy girl like me?  Please fill out an online adoption application and call my foster mom for any questions . . . I look forward to meeting you!

Sadie

(California)


 Dog Story:

Sadie was found tied to the shelter door one morning, abandoned by her family.  The shelter reached out to ABR and asked if we would be willing to take her.  We said YES!!

Her first night n Foster Care, Sadie was so tickled to be "out of jail" that she bounced around the floor, played with Foster Mom's small dog and loved on the Cats.  She gets along with everyone, and is so sweet and gentle.  She is fully housebroken, loves to sleep in bed with you, but understands what a crate is.  She doesn't chew or show any destructive behavior.  She is an easy going, really sweet dog.

The Shelter thought she had cushings, because she drank more water than usual and her waist line was swollen.  They also found she has arthritis in her spine.  They tried to do an ultrasound to determine if she was spayed and instead found a huge mass in her stomach area.

ABR didn't care.  We committed to giving this little girl the best home possible for her remaining years.  After taking her to the Vet for an ultrasound to determine what the mass is, we were given some depressing but hopeful news.  She has a very large liver mass and it is bleeding. The bleed is encapsulated in a hematoma, but it is urgent that she have surgery or she will bleed out.  The vet says that with this surgery, she will be relatively healthy for a 10 year old girl.  Removing the cantalope size mass will aleviate the stress on her organs, and reduce her weight dramatically.  Also, she is anemic and malnourished, because the mass is preventing her organs from processing her food properly.  Once the mass is removed, her body can return to normal function, and hopefully she will live for 3-5 more years.

ABR is supporting the emergency surgery so that this sweet girl can have a wonderful rest of her life.  If you are interested in becoming a Brittany Buddy, and helping Miss Sadie, please reference her name and ABR number on any donations you send.

 

Update 10-30-18

Miss Sadie has survived her surgery and is recovering well.  The surgery was pretty intense, and the vet staff were not certain she was going to pull through.  Luckily she did and is feeling so much better. 

Sadie had her stitches out yesterday and a post op appointment.  The result was really good.  Her blood count needs to be watched for a few weeks, as it is a little low, but considering what she has gone through the Vet is not surprised.  The next step for Sadie is to manage the arthritis in her spine.  Her back end is a little weak, so she doesn’t have great control of her hind quarters on slick surfaces.  She is getting stronger, though and enjoys her walks outdoors.

Miss Sadie is a great communicator.  She will tell you when she needs to go outside with a quick bark.  She will tell you when she is hungry, and when she wants a treat.  Otherwise, she is a quiet girl who is so happy to have a cozy place to curl up with her people.

She loves to go for rides in the car, but if she must stay home, she is fine with that as well.  She prefers not to have to be crated if left alone, and has proven herself to be quite responsible.  Miss Sadie will be a wonderful companion to someone who wants a lovely senior girl with lots of personality.

Truxton

(Oregon)



Dog Story:

Are you looking for a little international romance? How about a handsome Spaniard to stare lovingly into your eyes, cuddle with you on those cold winter nights that are soon to be here and best of all he doesn't get jealous if there are other dogs in your life.

Meet Truxton, he's an easy-going, 8 year old gentleman that is well behaved, gets along with everyone and loves a good siesta. Trux sits nicely but stay is well...a foreign concept. He's good on a leash, puts himself to bed in his crate when he wants a nap and is doing great with house-training considering he was likely not an inside dog until a few weeks ago. Truxton is a bit clingy and really likes his people, his entire world has been turned upside down in the past couple weeks so its understandable he gets a little anxiety when left alone, however he does fine when left in a crate. Trux is an opportunistic counter surfer, must be a language barrier thing.

If you're ready for a fun loving, sweetheart of a dog then Truxton is for you! Please fill out the online  adoption application and mention Truxton.

Garbi

(Oregon)


Dog Story:

Hello my name is Garbi, I'm 3 years old and fresh from Spain. I came to the United States on October 7th and even have my own passport. If you are looking for the perfect companion and friend I am the boy for you. I am very fun loving and a little goofy at times, filled with tons of character and love. My foster parents keep saying that I am very athletic and smart. I have caught onto things very quickly. The dog door was really easy for me to learn how to use. I am learning quickly how to walk on a leash with obedience, but sometimes I have to be reminded not to go crazy when I see a squirrel. Did you say squirrel? I love to run and chase the squirrels with my foster sisters out in the backyard. 

 

I get along with my foster sisters and love playing with them. When I get tired sometimes I like to have my space and not be cuddly with my foster sisters and sit on my own pillow. We all have a great time going on trips to the dog park. I really love running and exploring at the dog park. I also enjoy long walks along the river and like to get in the river and splash my paws around. I am trying to figure out the game of fetch. I like to chase the ball but haven’t figured out the part of bringing it back. I listen and want to please my foster parents. I have learned the basic commands and I am crate trained. I think it’s best to keep me in the crate while you are away from the house. I still get a little scared and have found myself up on the counter. I am really working on the part about counter surfing. I am not trying to get food on the counter but this kitchen has amazing windows and they have squirrels in the front yard too!!! I don’t know how I will do with cats. I walk by them great on leash but my foster family is a dog only family.

My foster parents have a teenage daughter and we do great together. I have met some neighbor kids and I do well with them also. I haven’t had the chance to meet any really young kids yet but I am gentle and just get a little excited at times. I really have enjoyed being a part of a family and going places with them and on car rides. I love to snuggle on the couch and chill with the family and sit in the middle of the kitchen while they make dinner. I love to follow them around the house as they do their chores and play in the backyard with them. I really do fit the quote “man’s best friend" and you will get that with me.

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

Rodeo Duke

(Utah)

Dog Story:
Duke is a white and orange neutered male Brittany, about 7 years old now. His ideal weight is 47 - 48 pounds Duke is a big boy that wants nothing more than to be with you all the time. Active and in the middle of things when you are up and about, he can get over excited, but will sit by your side when you sit as well. He is very housebroken, good with other dogs and cats, and has not been destructive when left loose in the house. He loves to be petted, sit with you, go with you. He can be a puller on leash, but will stop if asked by a knowledgeable dog person, or with no-pull equipment. He has done well as an office dog on a leash behind the desk. He just wants to be some person's or some family's pal. I believe he was starved for attention in the past, and he always wants all you can give him, but will accept boundaries when you have had enough. He has had no hunting training, but I have seen him sight point a flock of pigeons.

. Duke does not especially like to be crated, but has done okay in the plastic Vari-Kennel crates. He has pulled wires loose in a wire crate though, and will tear up bedding if crated, but not when loose. He has really done just fine being left loose in the house.

Duke has apparently had a fracture of one front ankle, but it does not seem to bother him any. He does not jump well, despite normal hip x-rays, so does need a boost in the rear to get into some vehicles. He rides well in the car on a seat belt. He knows basic commands - sit, stay, wait, come, down, stop. He really enjoys the wading pool in the back yard, and will use it daily.

Duke would do well with a person or family that wants a loving involved pet, willing to give him the attention and structure he thrives on. If you think Duke would be a great addition to your family please fill out the online  adoption application and mention Duke.

History:
Duke was picked up as a stray in Las Cruces, NM in June 2016, and not reclaimed. He was transferred from Mesilla Valley Animal Services to Brittany Rescue in Albuquerque. He was fully vetted, and adopted by a couple in northern NM. Two years later, their own health issues have forced their decision to return Duke to rescue

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.
