Sagan

(Arizona)

Dg Story:
Odin and Sagan came into rescue after their previous owners had to release them to the local animal shelter. Although cared about, they were not given the normal care dogs require to maintain their health and vitality. ABR has stepped in to restore these gentlemen to health, and give them a great start to their new lives. They are a bonded pair and so we are looking for a family that is willing to take both of these senior boys into their home and show them what a loving forever home is.

Sagan came to us with his lifetime pal and “brother from a different mother”, Odin. Sagan had a case of pancreatitis when he came into rescue. Working with the vet he was put on a special food, with wonderful results. He just received a clear lab result for the pancreatitis. We are so happy for him. It is still recommended that he be on the special food for a while and then possibly transition to a commercial high quality food.

Sagan has an interesting personality that is becoming more and more apparent every day. While not greatly affectionate, he will come to lay down close by and follow his human around. He loves his walks and walks well on a leash. He does have a bit of arthritis, but an occasional rimadyl keeps it at bay.

Sagan uses a doggie door and has wonderful house manners.

If you can open your heart to this handsome shephard who comes along with a handsome Brittany, please submit an adoption application for them. They are both great dogs and will complete any lucky household.

Dog Story:

They are a bonded pair and so we are looking for a family that is willing to take both of these senior boys into their home and show them what a loving forever home is.

Odin came to us with a bacterial infection on his back, and some atrophy of the hind muscles due to a lack of activity and arthritis. With good vet care, a healthy diet and regular exercise, his back is 100% healed and his fur is growing back really well. He loves his walks and playing in the yard. He is playful and affectionate. He is uses a doggie door and has exhibited no behavioral issues what so ever. He gets along well with other dogs and kids that he meets in the neighborhood.

Odin is on gabapentin for his arthritis, but is doing really well with that. His new owner will have to be watchful for a potential return of the bacterial infection on his back, but if monitored and treated he will be fine.

Odin is a typical, happy Brittany senior who is just looking for a forever home where he and Sagan can enjoy the good life with their loving humans

Levi

(Oklahoma)

Dog Story:
Hello, my name is Levi! In my seven years I was well trained to love every human with all my heart and always greet them with lots of kisses and excitement. I was raised as the happiest and most loving fur-buddy anyone could ask for. I am the master of many trades, from supervising in the kitchen, to nightly home security after bed time, best friend to all my fur-buddies. I do have a slight foot fetish, and love to play with socks. I don’t have any accidents and absolutely love rides. There is nothing like feeling the wind in my face, I love it so much I have even started riding motorcycles. Though slightly overweight, I still love to run and play every chance I get.

Foster mom here.... Levi seeks a mature and experienced new owner who can meet his every need and spoil him beyond his wildest dreams. Sound like you?

Levi is the sweetest and most loving dog I have ever met. He is always wagging his nubby so hard his whole back side wiggles. He is great in the house and very well mannered. He doesn’t get on furniture and isn’t one to sleep in a crate. He is happy on his blanket next to the bed. A quiet boy unless treats are out. He is great with basic commands and walks better with a harness.

If you are interested in this sweet lovable boy (who wouldn't be), please fill out the adoption application and mention his name and ID #.

Levi is up to date on his vaccines, heartworm negative and on preventative

Update
Levi recently had a seizure that lasted several minutes. We are currently monitoring him to see if this was a one time thing or if there is an underlying health issue. Since the seizure Levi is starting to act more like himself again, but still clingy to his human-parents. We will continue to update as we learn more.

To add to this update, since we have fostered Levi, he has escaped several times from us.  He LOVES to run and will take that chance when he sees the opportunity.  Both times it's been a door. Levi's past included hunting which is why he loves to take off and run.  When his owner past away, they kept him in an outdoor kennel run because he wouldn't listen to the wife.  As long as he wears his "E" collar though we have learned, he listens and respects the boundaries.  This boy is full of suprises!!

History:
Levi's owner passed away this last year and his wife was also dealing with health issues and knew she couldn't care for him the way he did, so they reached out to our rescue.

Austin

(Texas)

Dog Story:
Say a big HELLO to Austin! Austin came to the attention of ABR volunteers as a stray in a shelter in Austin, Texas. From there he went to a vet's office to be neutered, microchipped and vaccinated. He is now in the comfort of a foster home and is loving life.

Austin is a senior. Foster mom estimates his age to be at least 10 years old. And like most seniors he is still active, loves to explore, loves his foster companions and is very, very sweet. He has the sweetest look about him, especially when he wakes from a nap.

Austin is deaf. He compensates by looking for you or his foster companions therefore a home with another dog is a must. If you ask Austin, he would love to go with Daphnee as he has filled up her dance card.

Austin is up to date  on all vaccinations, neutered, chipped and is on heartworm preventative and flea & tick protection. Austin weighs 45-48 pounds and looks great at that weight. He does pretty well on a leash, not sure if he would be great off leash as his nose appears to be the leader when he is out on a walk. He rides very well in a vehicle. He is interested in cats, just not sure if he could be trusted by himself. He gets along with all of the neighborhood dogs and has stood up to another dog trying to get a bit too frisky. He has had a few accidents in the home however these were early on and we did not notice his ques.

If you are interested in knowing more on Austin please fill out an adoption application As previously mentioned a home with another dog(s) would be necessary since Austin takes a lot of ques from his foster companions.

History:
Austin was resued from a shelter in Austin.

Daphnee

(Texas)

Dog  Story:
3 words to describe Miss Daphnee - LIFE IS GOOD! If you are familiar with the "Life is Good" t-shirt company then you can probably picture a very happy dog enjoying life to the fullest. This dog is Daphnee. She is such a happy-go-lucky Brittany! Just yesterday, after running and playing ALL day in the yard chasing butterflies, cormorants, lizards and anything that moves she tears off running in large circles and flops on the ground for a wiggle session to scratch her back. So much fun to watch.

Don't let her age fool you. On March 19, 2019 she will turn 10! Daphnee does not act like 10. Be prepared to let her run OFF LEASH to burn her energy. Once she has had a chance to run and play she behaves beautifully inside. A few times it has rained all day and she did well inside however she wanted to be in my lap and then off, then on, then off, etc. Daphnee does great around all dogs of all sizes. She past the Camp Bow Wow temperament test and played very well with all of the doggies there. She is interested in the indoor cats however does not bother them - just curious. Daphnee does well riding in a car without a kennel - haven't tested her with one. We are still working on the off-leash training. There are times she does really well keeping her distance close and then there are the times the chase is on. To be fair, we live in an area where there are a lot of undeveloped tracts of land and Brittany distractions are everywhere. The only time I could not find her she was back at my home sitting on the front porch - Good girl Daphnee. Daphnee needs a secure fence and will test every possible weakness in the fence.

Daphne is up to date  on all vaccinations, spayed, heartworm  negative and on preventative. She is also microchipped. While being spayed we had a growth removed on her belly and had it examined by a pathologist. Luckily, the growth was benign with no residual issues. She currently weighs around 30 pounds and looks good at that weight. She eats a bit more (1.5 cups, 2 times a day) than my other Brits however she burns it off running and playing. Due to a lifestyle change Daphnee is an owner surrender. Daphnee's forever home will need to have another dog to help burn her energy. She also needs a secure fence. If you are interested in adopting Daphnee please fill out an adoption application

History:
Daphne is an owner surrender to rescue due to a lifestyle change.

 

   

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.
