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.

Burt

(California)

Dog Story:

 Meet little Burt. He was thought to have been a Brittany or Britt mix but turns out he is more of a Terrior mix.  He loves playing with his toys and engaging puppy play with dogs of all sizes. It is unknown if he been around cats.  He is a bit fearful of new people and is slow to trust and territorial of his area.  He expresses his fear with his tiny mouth and speed - so no fingers in his crate please.  Luckily he weighs less than 10 lbs. as he is a spaniel terrier cross.  Food is a great motivator for him however Burt can be food aggressive. It is best right now if he is in his crate for meals and marrow bone time. He doesn't do well with small children. 

Burt does warms up to his new friends quickly with treats. He is very smart and trainable as he learned the doggy flap in an hour. Burt needs a home willing to invest time and training with him so he can become the sweet loveable little dog he is destined to be! 

If you think Burt is the pocket pup for you, please fill out the online adoption application and mention Burt.

 

Dog History:

Burt was found as a stray in the Northern California area.

Rookie

(California)

Dog Story:

Looking for a new best friend and walking buddy?  Rookie is ready to be that new friend!  

Rookie is a sweet affectionate dog who loves to be with people.  He paced a lot when he first came to us, but he is relaxed and enjoying being part of the family now.  He is happy to see the grandkids every day and chase squirrels with his brittany brother.

Rookie has chronic arthritis in one of his front elbows, but it doesn't slow him down.  While he takes medication for his elbow, he is energetic,  loves walking to school with the grandkids every day (~2.0 miles RT), visiting the dog park and loves laying at your feet in the house. He is housebroken, rides well in the car, learned how to use the doggie door, loves sleeping in his crate, sits for food and treats without jumping up, and gets along well with other dogs,.

If you are interested in having Rookie join your family, please fill out the online adoption application and for more info call his foster parents.

 

Dog History:

Rookie had previously been adopted by a family whose child developed an allergy to dogs.  He was then surrendered to a shelter when ABR got involved.

Indiana Jones "Indy"

(California)

Dog Story:

Indiana Jones “Indy” is a handsome, fun-loving, affectionate and energetic boy. He is neutered, up-to-date on his shots, and both crate-trained and housebroken. He loves, and needs, his walks. He is ok on a leash with a gentle leader, but pulls too hard without some type of restraint. He enjoys spending time outside, sniffing everything possible, but prefers to spend his time with his people inside as well as outside. He is content to sleep in his crate.

Indy is great around people, but may be a little too energetic around small children. He is great around other dogs, but we have not tested him with cats.

if you think Indy would be a great addition to your family please fill out the online  adoption application and mention Indy!

Dog History:

Indy’s owner has been deployed for an extended period, and he felt it would be better for Indy to be rehomed with a family who would love him and care for him as much as he does.

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.

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) and he may become destructive. 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

Blondie

(California)


Dog Story

Meet Blondie! She is super sweet, very curious, and smart. She is energetic as expected of a young dog but she naps by her people at the drop of a hat. She loves to explore & “hunt” and will keep all the rodents & birds out of the yard. She is potty trained, crate trained, walks great on a leash, knows the dog door, loves to lounge & sleep on the “furniture”.

Blondie is an amazing Brittany. She is very small & food motivated. She has learned several words very quickly. She loves pets & attention. She is fine with our cats. She took one look, the cat hissed, she looked the other way & never bothered him again. I was told that she was an escape artist but I haven’t seen her rush the door or try & jump or dig out. She would be fine in a home by herself or with another dog.

If you are interested in Blondie, please fill out the online adoption application and contact her foster mom, Tonya Lindsay 530-292-3079.

Dog History:

Blondie was one of the dogs ABR rescued from Greece.

International rescue adoption fee is $450.00

Brownie

(California)


Dog Story:

Meet Brownie! He arrived from Greece with 5 other wonderful dogs and is loving his life in the States. He is super sweet, young and gangly, curious and very affectionate. He is energetic as expected of a young dog, but he naps by his people at the drop of a hat. He really wants to always be by his people and is not very self-assured. Brownie is potty trained, crate trained, walks fabulously on a leash and loves his toys. He is very food motivated, but needs lots of pets and attention.

Brownie does not do well with cats. He thinks they are play things to chase and bark at. Brownie really needs a home where people are there most of the time or have another dog to pal around with. He is learning the English language and would do well taking a basic puppy/your dog training class to give him some confidence.

Currently Brownie is on treatment for mites which consists of 1 chewable liver flavored flea and tick pill every three weeks for two more sessions. The mites are not contagious to other pets, and is isolated to a dime size area by the eye.

If you would like more details,or think Browniw will be a great addition to your family please fill out the online adoption application  and contact his foster mom, Tonya.

 Dog History:

Brownie was one of the dogs ABR rescued from Greece.

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.

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.

Jack

(Washington)

Dog Story:

We've got the Jack! Jack is just as sweet as can be, he loves to snuggle, he loves balls, he loves the "bone bin" in the living room. I don't think that we have found anything that he doesn't love! Jack is a gentleman in the house. Outside he has decent recall, but he may need a little work. He is super smart so he catches on quickly. We have little goats on our property which he thought of chasing. It only took 2 days for him to get that he wasn't allowed to do that. He was leaning the fence boundary at the same time & he got them both figured out in record time!

Please email me for more information as my VM doesn't get checked often. Thanks for thinking Jack!

If you think Jack would make a great addition to your family please fill out the online  adoption application and mention Jack. Please email his foster Mom for more info. 

 

Dog History:

   

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.
