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.

Odin

(Arizona)

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

Jacques

(Texas)

Dog Story:
 Hi, my name is Jacques….or Jack for short! I may not be a full Brittany, but whatever I am I'm the best of both worlds.  I’m told I’m just as sweet as a Brittany and love to be by "my people".  I have such wonderful traits so let me tell you all about them.  I am very good with other dogs and people.  I go to the dog park and play with the other dogs just fine, no problems there.  When I go for my walk, I'm very good about sticking to the sidewalk and I don't "pull" whoever is walking with me, in fact most of the time my leash is very loose. I don’t require long walks either. A 30 minute walk and I’m a happy boy.

During the day I like to nap so I’m ready for you when you come home so we can go for a walk or even to the dog park…just saying!!   I’m not a hunter but do enjoy watching the birds and squirrels.  I also am housebroken and not a big barker either.  

Hey Jack, it's your foster mom here, my turn to tell them about you!!  I really enjoy having him with us.  He's got so many good traits.  He seems to like my cat and gets along with her but the cat isn't too keen on him He doesn't counter surf in the kitchen, doesn't go after food if you decide you want to eat in front of the TV (he does give you those big brown eyes and gets close, but he's never stolen any food!).  When the front or back door is opened for whatever
reason he doesn't go flying outside to investigate anything, I like that! He's curious, but if I tell him to stay away from the door, he does.  When I go into a room he's not allowed in and the door is shut, he doesn't scratch
at it to get in, but will patiently wait outside (good time to catch a nap).  Jack doesn't get on the furniture or beds and he sleeps in his crate at night and is quiet until I wake up him in the morning.  When it comes to eating, Jack has his food out all day and eats when he likes…Jack likes to “graze” his meals.

Jack does have an inflamed joint below the shoulder, so he has a limp.  Over the counter anti Inflammatory supplements is what is on tap for him.  It doesn't seem to bother him, and you can touch his leg without him even noticing anything.  

If you are interested in making Jack a part of your family, please fill out the online application and mention his name and ID #.  Jack is up to date on his vaccines and is heartworm negative and on preventative.

History:
Jack was a stray at the shelter.  When his hold period was up, they contacted our rescue. He appears to be more Brittany, but not 100%.  Whatever he is blended with, it has created a very beautiful, balanced dog.

   

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.
