Dog Story:

Gus is 11 years old. After fostering him for a month, we realized that he was left at the animal shelter unjustly.  He is the sweetest animal we have ever had the opportunity to host.  He is completely house-trained and knows the command, “sit”.  He lets you know if he needs to go outside.  

Gus gets along well with our three dogs and our children.  If we didn’t already have a full house and lots of busy schedules we would keep Gus.  He would be a great addition to any family who wants a dog without all the new puppy nonsense and mess.  He just needs a permanent home to enjoy his senior years. He spends his days sleeping in his favorite chair and still likes to play with dog toys. He even brings us his bowl when he’s ready for food.


If Gus sounds like the perfect addition to your family, please fill out the online  adoption application and mention the delightful Gus!


Dog History:

Gus was rescued from a shelter by ABR.

Contact: Terri & Steve Hansen



Dog Story:


Renee is such a joy to have around! She is sweet, funny and rambunctious. Despite her small size she has the heart of a lion! She happily chases the family goats, but will just hang out with them as well. She likes to snuggle humans and other dogs alike. Her previous foster nicknamed her Scooter because she does that funny army crawl that we love so much! Renee is housebroken and crate trained.

If you interested in meeting Renee please email foster Mom Terri and fill out the online  adoption application

Dog History:

Renee is part of ABR’s International rescue effort. 



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.
