Hagen

(Texas)

Dog Story:
Hagen is a 7 year, 9 month male whose elderly owner died, the family brought him to SPCA, and the shelter contacted ABR where he is settling in nicely to his foster home.

He is a friendly, affectionate boy, used to being mainly indoors. He's housetrained, and loves being an indoor/outdoor dog with his foster parents and their Brits. A typical Brit, he is high energy, chases squirrels, then crashes for long naps.

He is learning not to be on furniture; obedience; but is already leash trained. When excited, he barks, but not at night or outdoors. He sleeps in bed on covered area with other dogs outside, but I am sure would love an indoor dog bed or to snuggle with you.

Hagen's perfect home is with adults or family with teens, but no babies, toddlers or young children. He is great with other dogs, male and female. He has trust in both men and women, eager to please and very sweet. If you would like to be considered as Hagen’s “Forever HUMAN” please fill out our online adoption application and mention Hagen.

History:
Hagen was rescued from a shelter where he was an owner surrender.

Darby

(Texas)

Dog Story:
Meet sweet loving Darby who would love to find her forever home soon!

Darby is all of 33 lbs, housebroken and gets along well with other dogs, not a digger, or fence jumper or one to bolt the door!!

Darby loves to be outside as much as she can. She loves to explore with her nose. We have seen her chase the feral cats so we don't think a home with cats is advisable. Darby loves her crate as well. We do not close her in at night, but that is where she will prefer to sleep . During the day, while we are at work, we leave the crate door open and she is the perfect angel. No accidents and not a thing destroyed.

One of the more endearing things about Darby is that she "collects" stuffed animals! Doesn't destroy them, but gathers them in her crate or dog bed and then lays with them. It's like her babies as we think she had a litter prior to being taken to the shelter. Darby is also very submissive. If you scold her, she is down and rolling over. Darby's does know "Sit and Down" very well and "Stay" for about a minute or two.

Darby's downside? Yes, even this perfect girl has one....is that she loves to jump on things...sofa, counters and people. We are working on curbing this and making progress. Once Darby has calmed down, which only takes a minute or two, she is calm and quiet the rest of the day.

If you are interested in adopting Darby, please fill the adoption application and mention her name and ID#. Her perfect family will be one that will love on her and make her every bit a part of their lives.

Darby is up to date on her vaccines and heartworm negative and on preventative.

History: 
Darby was found at a local shelter near Dallas. We don't know a whole lot about her other then her milk sacks were full and so we know she had pups at some point. What happened to them? We will never know. But we feel strongly that is why she gathers all the stuffed animals to her bed and keeps them there.

Duke

(Texas)

Dog Story:
A big Texas Howdy from Duke!! Personality / Traits - Duke is a big brittany with lots of love and a fun personality. Duke gets along wonderfully with with my 5 other dogs and has recently met my indoor cats. Not sure I would trust Duke alone with the cats however there is potential for him getting along just fine with them.

Duke loves to get in the water and walk around chasing dragonflies, etc. Duke also loves to run in the grass then plop down and roll around like he just invented the back scratcher technique. Duke does well inside the house however it appears he enjoys being outside watching birds, etc. Duke travels in a car very well and has not had any accidents in the house.

Medical - When he first came to my home he weighed 65 pounds and even though he is a big Brittany we think he would look great around 55 pounds. To date he has already lost 5 pounds and looking really great. He is up to date on all his vaccinations, neutered, microchipped and heartworm negative. He is on HW prevention as well as flea & tick prevention.

It appears Duke is hearing impaired. Not sure if he is 100% deaf as he does turn his head on occasion when my phone rings or something makes noise on the TV. He compensates extremely well by watching what the other dogs are doing as well and keeping close eye contact with me. Due to his hearing I would require a home with a fenced yard with no access to the street.

Needs - would love to see Duke go to a home with an existing dog where he could be apart of the pack OR a home where someone is home a lot as he likes being around either dogs or humans.

History  
Duke is an owner surrender who could not take him with them on thier move. He was kept in a large outdoor kennel with another dog. The owner obtained Duke from a rancher in 2010 whereby the rancher stated Duke did not hunt.

   

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.
