Indy

(Arizona)

Dog Story:
Meet Indy! Indy is a beautiful French Brittany who was surrendered to a training kennel. She prefers women but we believe that is because her previous owner was a single woman. She does show reservations toward men. She shows an interest in birds but has had no formal training.

She must have a fence that she CANNOT climb as she climbed right over the top of her outdoor kennel.

She would love to be a house dog with someone who is home often. Someone who can spend time with her giving her the love and attention she craves. Someone who has a boyfriend for her to play with. And maybe someone who can show her how to be a hunting dog.

Blanca

(New Mexico)


Dog Story:
Meet Blanca, a beautiful 8 year old lady.  Blanca loves her people.  Originally trained as a hunting dog but did not like fetching. All she wanted to do was to stay with her owner. Blanca's original owner was killed in a hunting accident.  Fortunately Blanca was not present that day. After the death of her owner, Blanca was given to a family friend and this is her present home.  As circumstances have evolved, her present owner does not have the time to give Blanca the attention she needs.

Blanca is a typical high energy Brittany.   Blanca would be best as an only dog as she is food agressive to other dogs. Blanca would do well with an active person or family, preferably with someone home most of the time. Blanca is a busy girl and if left alone for long periods of time will get bored and do things to entertain herself, such as digging or pacing.  Blanca is a very loving girl and just wants someone to give her love to. Blanca is good on a leash, good with kids and cats and is crate trained.                                                  

 If you think Blanca would fit into your life, please complete an adoption application found on our website.

Hank

(Texas)


Dog Story:
Hank is an owner surrender from a hunting camp in Santa Anna, Texas.  He lived his entire life as an expert bird hunting dog living 24/7 in a kennel, but is now officially retired and looking for a special someone to let him spend his furever after living in style.  He loves to lounge outside in the shade, but we are working with him to enjoy time indoors as well.  He gets along great with my two other britts as well as our senior Jack Russell.  He would make a great companion for a senior, but would appreciate time spent with other dogs as well, as he enjoys being part of a pack and following my dogs around everywhere.  He has a cough right now that is being treated, but is in otherwise good health for a senior boy.  He's worked hard his entire life, he deserves to spend his last few years with someone who loves him.  He clearly loves attention, he keeps coming up to me for a few scritches.  Such a good boy!  He is not neutered and, pending blood work, we will have to see if he is even eligible for such a procedure at this age.

Sunshine AKA Sunny

(Texas)

Dog Story:
Introducing Sunshine, AKA Sunny. Sunny is a happy little girl who loves to cuddle and play.  

Sunny has done very well around her canine brothers & sisters and is tolerated by her feline "friends".  She has done very well in the home and her accidents have been minimal.  

When Sunny first came into rescue she has a bad case of Demodex mange.  Luckily, this type of mange is very treatable and is not contagious. After antibiotics, medicated shampoos & bathing, and some TLC, Sunny is doing great  Her hair is growing back and she no longer looks as if Yoda could be her father. Sorry Darth.  

Sunny is up to date  on all vaccinations, microchipped and has been recently spayed.  She is on heartworm preventative as well as oral flea & tick medication.  Her current weight is 12.5 and her expected adult weight should be 20-25 pounds  

As you can see from the photos, Sunny is not all Brittany.  Not exactly sure what she could be mixed with however a DNA test kit has been requested  

Sunny's forever home should be ready for some puppy energy and have patience with some training

Faith

(Texas)

Dog Story:
Now introducing Faith! Faith is a beautiful orange & white spayed female, weighing 36 pounds, updated on all vaccines, heartworm negative & on prevention and microchipped. She gets along with other dogs very well and has done well with her indoor cats, however I am not sure I would trust her alone with them just yet. Currently, Faith is visiting her foster home in CO and has done extremely well off leash. She rode very well in car dirt from the trip and did well in the hotel room. Faith is learning some basic commands. She is eager to please and is quick to catch on. Her forever family should have an active lifestyle & another dog to play with.

History:
Faith came into ABR mid July. She was surrendered by her AZ family due to snapping at a young child. When she came to her foster home we did notice "fear aggression" with strangers. This has improved significantly however we will not adopt to families with young children or grandchildren. Please understand we want to share with you all that is good wth Faith as well as items needing attention. We want her to find her forever home.

 

   

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.
