Jason

(California)

** The adoption fee for international rescues is $450**

Dog Story:

Jason is an energetic and loving 2 year old male recently coming to California from Greece. He does not know English, but he already knows his name and is learning very quickly his basic commands of sit, come, down. Walking on a leash is still a work in progress.

When Jason was rescued from the streets of Greece it was evident that his left front leg was broken and that it had been broken for awhile as he was already very skilled at getting around with three legs. After consideration it became clear the best route for Jason was to amputate his leg and he has not missed it one bit. In fact he even has mastered digging and burying his bones for later.

Jason loves to spend hours curled up next to you, responding to love, tummy rubs, kisses with complete acceptance. He loves to ride in cars, run in the yard and is learning to come when called. Jason, even with only three legs, follows a scent with his nose never leaving the ground and points birds in his own way that shows the joy he experiences doing what Brittany’s do best.

Jason needs to learn boundaries and signals from other dogs about approaching them when playing or wanting to play. With strong and loving guidance he will learn as he is beginning to now bit by bit. As Jason’s foster Mom and having owned about 6 Brittany’s I find Jason to be one of the most loving Brittany’s I have ever had the pleasure to enjoy. He will be a great addition to any family with time to train his young energy and enthusiasm.

 If you would like to make Jason part of your family please fill out the online  adoption application and mention Jason. 

Dog History:

Jason is one of several dogs rescued from Greece.

Maia

(California)

** The adoption fee for international rescues is $450**

Dog Story:

Maia recently arrived from Greece. She is a very sweet girl, but sometimes timid. She is submissive and is very gentle with adults and kids. Gets along very well with our smaller dog. Maia does not understand English yet, but has learned what her name is.

She seems to be housebroken and loves to run. Maia has a lot of energy and loves being around people. She does back away sometimes when approached and seems a little unsure about people, but will then begin to follow you again. She has shown great affection as well, approaching and laying her head on a lap. She is very sweet and I believe just needs love and time to get more comfortable.

If you think Maia would make a good addition to your family, please fill out the online  adoption application and mention Maia.

Dog Story:

Maia was one of several dogs 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.

Sadie

(California)


Dog Story:

Sadie is one sweet lady. She settled in quickly to her foster home and loves to follow her ABR sister, Marley. They make quite a team patrolling the garden for anything that moves. She loves to go for walks, is quiet in the car (although she is best not jumping in at her age!) and sleeps by the bed through the night. She is a little overweight but we are working on that!

She sits calmly for grooming and bathing, behaving perfectly and has a lovely soft coat, great for cuddling into.  She is best not left alone too long but would prefer the company of either human or canine, but not in a home with cats as she seems a little too interested in chasing them.

if you are interested in having Sadie join your family please fill out the online  adoption application and mention Sadie.

 

Dog History:

Sadie was surrendered by her owner to ABR as they had a second child and also recently lost a younger dog.  If you can open your heart to this sweet older Brittany, she will re-pay you with kisses.

Penny Lane

(Oregon)

Dog Story:

Hi my name is Penny Lane, I never thought I would be looking for a new home but here I am. I lived with my family for 8 years, we were all very sad to part ways but my little brother was very sick. The only way for him to get better was for me to pack my bones - so I have ABR to thank for helping me find a new home. 

I'm 10 years young and weight 35 lbs. I have the spirit of a puppy but the wisdom of  a senior. I'm past all the silly puppy stuff, I don't jump up or get on the sofa (well sometimes) and I love my crate, my blanket and stuffed fox. I know how to sit, stay, lay down, shake, play soccer, I like to play in water and am a master treat catcher. I do my "business" outside and will let myself out the doggy door. My family sent me with a list of my 15 favorite things, scratches under the collar and playing tug with my blanket are just two on the list. I walk smartly on a leash with a Gentle Leader otherwise I'm a typical Brittany and like to take you for a drag down the street. I like people of all ages, especially men; I think cats are boring once I meet them. I've been an only dog for a long time so I'm a little possessive of my toys, blanket and crate. I get along with most dogs but it would be best if we met first.

I have a mild heart condition that I take medication for, that just means that I'm not going to run a marathon but thats ok, I'm an expert snuggler. I also take medication for what mom calls incontinence cause I potty a little in my sleep - but with my medication I'm good as new. I'm otherwise a healthy, happy girl that would love to have a place at your feet.

Foster Mom here: Penny is a sweet girl that has been an only dog for a long time. She's a little possessive of "her" things, we're trying to work through it. We can tell Penny wants to play with the other dogs but is unsure, I think in time she will figure out no one is a threat. 

Penny had a recent vet exam and microchip, and is up-to-date on her vaccines. Penny takes 3 inexpensive presciptions daily:  Prion, Furosemide and Enalapril. 

Pennys family loved her very much and were heartbroken to have to give her up; through it all Penny has managed to keep a smile on her face and a wiggly tail. 

If you would like Penny to join your family please fill out the online  adoption application and mention Penny.

Dog History:

Penny was surrendered to ABR by her family.

Dash

(Oregon)

Dog Story:

Hi! I'm Dash - cause I like to dash everywhere and because I'm dashingly handsome. At least that's what my foster mom says. I'm 1 1/2 years old and full of boundless puppy energy. I'm alert, curious, and a fast learner. I know my name and come when called (especially if you have treats). I can sit and am working on lying down on command (Yay for more treats!). I love playing with other dogs and love kids. I'm learning to not jump up on visitors, but I'm just so happy to see them! As energetic as I am, I know when it's time to settle down for the night, I love my crate (I am fully crate trained) and sleep in it at night. And I'm fully housetrained too! I have puppy kisses to give and lots of love to share.

 

Foster Mom states that Dash is a very high energy boy and loves to play with other dogs - Dash needs to be kept busy and stimulated. Dash doesn't know a stranger and gets along with everyone, human and dog alike. Dash is interested in birds and a little too interested in cats for them to be safe. Dash is learning to walk on a leash and if he attended basic obedience classes would no doubt be top of the class. Dash's new home must have secure fencing and a large yard to run and play safely. Dash loves, loves, loves to play with other dogs so his new homes must have another dog for Dash to play with.

Although Dash does love kids, all children or grandchildren in a potential new home need to be 5 year or older. 

If you would like Dash to join your family please fill out the online  adoption application and mention Dash.

Dog History:

Dash was surrendered to ABR by his owners.

Mika

(Oregon)

** The adoption fee for international rescues is $450**

Dog Story:

Yassas! I’m Mika, a cute little Frenchie from Greece now living in the Pacific Northwest and looking for a forever home to bury my bones. I was found on the streets on the island of Levnos as a little pup wandering all by myself when some nice people took me in till someone else could care for me. Then ABR International took me for a looooong plane ride and now I’m here in the big woods. I'm looking for a special place that will let me run, jump and play outside.

I'm a really nice girl that never bites and hardly ever barks. I walk smartly on a leash and have nice manners however I like to counter surf sometimes (don't tell mom). I know how to use the doggy door but I’m not thrilled about going outside to “do my business” when it’s raining so mom says we’re still working on it. I know how to sit, lay down and love my crate. I like to play with other dogs but also know when to settle down to be quiet. Last thing, I love bones! If you have bones then I know we will get along great.

Foster mom: Mika is an old soul that is very quiet for a dog her age. She loves to play rough and tumble with the big dogs but settles right down when it’s time to come in the house. Mika is a smart, independent little girl that learns fast but doesn’t always want to go outside in the rain therefore we’ve had a few accidents. She's affectionate, loves to cuddle and be held like a baby. When first introduced to other dogs Mika can be defensive but settles right in once she knows she’s safe. Mika is fully crate trained, does great on a leash, is learning basic commands and working on her recall. She's not destructive but does need stimulation to keep her busy. Mika is a very special girl, we adore her. Due to Mika's age, a refundable spay deposit equal to the adoption.

if you would like Mika to join your family please fill out the online  adoption application and mention Mika.

Dog History:

Mika was one of several dogs rescued in Greece.

Sally

(Utah)

Dog Story:

Sally is a sweet petite girl at 38 pounds she is just the perfect lapdog. Although she doesn't usually get on the furniture, I'm sure she could be persuaded, she loves treats! She walks well on a leash when using a body harness.

Sally visited the vet and instantly made friends with everyone she met. She gets along great with people and dogs, she even tolerates the resident snarky poodle. She loves attention and having her ears scratched.

If you want to hear more about Sally, just contact her foster dad and if you are interested in adopting her, please fill out the online  adoption application

Dog History:

Sally was returned from her family because their family dynamics had changed and they could no longer keep her.

Leo

(Washington)

** The adoption fee for international rescues is $450**

Dog Story:  

Meet Leo the Greek God! Leo has been in the USA since April 30th, he was rescued from the Greek Islands. After getting over his initial jet lag & a bit if a language barrier (we're not smart enough to say Kathíste sto kreváti and he doesn't listen to the google translator) he has settled in nicely.

Leo is a big hunk of love, he likes to stand up & hug people, he loves to be petted & brushed & groomed in general. He has met a human's from age 8 to 80 and he hasn't met one that he dislikes. Same with the resident dogs, he just kind of loves everyone. Well, the kid goats scared him at first, but he's resilient and persistent.

We feel that ideally Leo would enjoy having another dog in his forever home, but what he really, really needs is a human to give him the love that he craves. He wants to be a big lap dog, which throws us into giggle fits, because he doesn't quite fit!

if you think Leo would be a perfect addition for your family please fill out the online  adoption application and mention Leo.

Dog History:

Leo is one of several dogs ABR rescued from Greece.

Bona

(Washington)

** The adoption fee for international rescues is $450**

Dog Story:

Hello America! I am Bona, aka, Bonnie, a very lucky girl to be here from Greece where I didn't have my own family. I like my new family in Seattle, especially the food and play and fun going places. I miss not having a playmate very very much as my two new dogie friends don't like to play. I really need a playful buddy to help me wear off my energy and lots of exercise and outings to satisfy my curiosity about everything.

Mornings are my active time, or anytime you are moving around the house, I'll be there with you!! I love car rides, too! I don't bark much, just when the mailman comes. My mom ignores me when I bark for attention so I'm not doing that much. She plays with me lots so I feel OK. Bonnie is typical precocious and stinker of a petite 36# 2 yo Brittany pup!! To the core this girl will keep you on your toes. She is a total delight with a heaping serving of mischief! She will settle down in the house when she has given up on getting attention or creating mayhem!! She loves everyone and is looking for playmates with other dogs. Without that, she tries to play with me which means mouthing hands, sleeves, pants. I am carrying around toys to redirect her. She loves shoes!! Your clothes... or anything that is not in the well stocked toy box!! She is so rambunctious that even in spite of her small size small children may be at risk of being knocked over, and older ones will just be another 'dogie type' playmate which needs to be redirected.

She is good at: Snuggles, cuddles, pets, accepting affection and loves Snores, groans with pleasure with pets and staying close Playing with stuffed toys, not so much tennis balls Playing with other dogs, although shy at first Walking on leash with harness is pretty good, with just collar not so good! Will potty outside, no messes in house, but I wouldn't trust yet that she is housebroken. Uses the dogie door when following me, or to get to me, but not yet of her own choice Has learned quickly not to counter surf or get on furniture. Has also learned by observing the other dogs that the bed and a special chair are allowed. Will stay all day in a crate,without fussing, but is not preferable. She's had enough of crates and isn't going in voluntarily. Needs to pee mid day. Has not shown any signs of jumping fence or digging out of yard, but I've not left her for any long period of time. What she is not good at yet, one week and counting, is: knowing her name, or any commands. She comes to me by my voice and hand clapping or rustle of treat package. Recall is very minimal. Respecting boundaries. She's so excited to play that she jumps on me, bumps into me and generally tries to instigate dogie style play. I suspect she's been in a shelter most of her life where dogies more than people were her companions.

Bonnie will need total obedience training and another dogie to play with. Will do well in daycare. She has the temperament to be a reading with rover or hospital visitation dog as she loves people, pets, and new activities. We will try and adopt her regionally to minimize  another stressful transport.

If Bona seems like the perfect addition to your family please fill out the online  adoption application and mention Bonna. Also please email her foster Mom for more information. 

Dog History:

Bona is one of several dogs that were rescued from Greece.

 
   

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.
