Kobe

(Alabama)

Dog Story:
Hola, hola, hola!!!  I have arrived in your beautiful country from Espana.  My name is Kobe but no one here speaks Spanish so they can't figure out how to pronounce it.  They like to call me little Pedro too which I like.  I come when Herself calls.  But to be honest I don't speak Inglesia so I pretty much come to anything.  Especially when Herself calls me a muy bueno doggie.  I'm staying here with my Americano cousins.  They are muy Bueno too!  Well, except for the little English one.  But we Spanish have yet to get over the whole Liz the First and the Armada thing.  Maybe she will be leaving soon.  Anyway, I am adjusting nicely, I travel well, like people and am very good in my crate.  So here I am in Alabama waiting for some people to take me to their house so I can follow them everywhere, scratch my belly and teach me Inglesa.  Kisses from Kobe Pedro!

Little Kobe Pedro is very people-oriented, eager to please, wants to be near you – stays close but is not overpowering, and is quiet in the house.  This sweet goofball will chase a ball and bring it back, has mastered the steps and is afraid of cats.

History: 
Kobe Pedro was found as a stray in Spain, an abandoned hunting dog.  This winsome lad is neutered, up to date on vaccinations, microchipped, leishmania and heartworm negative, and on heartworm preventive.  If you'd like to have a handsome shadow who will adore you, please submit an adoption application and mention Kobe-5662.  The adoption fee for international rescues is $450.

Horus

(Florida)

Dog Story:
Greetings, my name is Horus!  I came from Spain and landed here in sunny Florida, where I am loving life in every way!  At first I was a little bit shy, but have always enjoyed the company of my fellow dog friends in Spain, and I really adore the attention of people.  At my new ABR foster home I am so lucky to be living the best life ever!  I have a big foster family of doggy siblings and they are my best friends; we are a really cool pack of bird dog buddies with Brittanys, English Setters, a Springer Spaniel, and little dogs too, plus two rescued horses!  With a warm comfy house and so much room to run and explore outdoors, I’ve learned how awesome it is to play with the younger dogs for lots of healthy exercise and sunshine.  I am very respectful of the senior dogs too.  The horses were something new, but I sure do like visiting the stables to hang out with them, and all of us rescue creatures know how lucky we are to be in Disneyland here with a big ranch to romp around!

Foster mom and dad even have a cool doggy living room in the house just for us, with couches and dog beds to rest and play.  I am also crate trained and like to sleep and nap in my crate.  I have gotten the hang of house training since I always lived outside before, and I am most eager to please my people giving lots of love and getting hugs and pets in return.  I am very handsome with long legs to do plenty of running and exercise.  I haven’t been around kids or cats before, but I would really like canine siblings to have a playmate and best friend to hang out with.  I know how great the attention of humans is, and will be a great companion for a forever family ready to welcome home a young Brittany boy.  Love, Horus    

History:
Horus was rescued as a stray in Spain and has thrived beautifully settling into his ABR foster home.  He really enjoys the company of his foster siblings and will do best with a canine companion.  Horus is neutered, current on vaccinations, microchipped, leishmania and heartworm negative, and on heartworm and flea/tick preventive.  If you are interested in Horus, please submit an adoption application and mention Horus-5665.  The adoption fee for international rescues is $450.

Alain

(Georgia)

Dog Story:
Hola amigos. Estoy tan feliz de estar en Estates Unidos!  I loved everything about the plane ride here and meeting lots of new dogs and friends.  There is so much to do and see in my new country.  I am so glad some kind people in Spain took me in and helped me and decided to send me on my big adventure.

Alain came off the plane and immediately started winning hearts.  His beautiful looks and happy, fearless attitude was evident the moment our ABR volunteers saw him.  He is super friendly with people and dogs.  He loves, loves, loves, going for walks and “superman” flying off the couch or across the kitchen when chasing his foster brothers.  He’s very excited when anyone enters the house and does well in his crate.  His big personality is packed into a tiny, petite body and he is so cute sleeping in either a tiny ball or lounging half off the couch.

History:
Alain was found as a stray in Spain.  This beautiful boy is neutered, current on vaccinations, microchipped, leishmania and heartworm negative, and on heartworm preventive.  If you are interested in Alain, please submit an adoption application and mention Alain-5666.  The adoption fee for international rescues is $450.

Sky

(Georgia)

Dog Story:
Hi, I’m Sky. (Pronounced Ski.)  I am one of the Brittanys brought over from the streets of Spain.  And just like my fellow countryman, Enrique Iglesias, I am ready to sing you a love song.  I don’t bark constantly, but when I do start, I enjoy the sound of my voice.  My foster family thinks it’s kind of cute.  I love exploring all of the new things about my new home and I ADORE following around the resident girl Brittany.  I am so handsome, I think I will win her over soon.  I am a happy boy when I feel secure. I’m still a little wary of new people, but once I get to know you, my tail wags a mile a minute and I grin from ear to ear.  I am house trained, I walk on a leash with hardly any pulling, and although I don’t love the crate, I stay in there just fine at night and when no one is at home.  The vet thinks I am about a year and a half and I definitely have lots of puppy energy still as well as the desire to check out new things with my puppy teeth—socks beware!

History:
Sky was found as a stray in Spain.  This beautiful boy is neutered, current on vaccinations, microchipped, leishmania and heartworm negative, and on heartworm and flea/tick preventive.  While in Spain awaiting transport, Sky made quick friends with one of the other dogs at the shelter there.  As soon as he arrived at his new foster home in Georgia, Sky has been stuck like glue to the resident Brittany. We feel Sky needs a home with another canine buddy.  He is very laid back and interacts well with people and dogs.  If you are interested in Sky, please submit an adoption application and mention Sky-5668.  The adoption fee for international rescues is $450.

Ordo

(Georgia)

Dog Story:
Hello, I am Ordo!  Don't let my shyness fool you!  With a little time and patience, I'll come around, and in no time, I'll be by your side.  You see, life on your own can be tough.  ABR rescued me and brought me here from Spain, but I am still a little scared and worried about life.

I really like my foster sisters. Those two Brittany girls are goofy!  I love snuggles and walks.  Loud noises are a little scary though, so houses with little kids aren’t the best for me.  I’ve been visiting my foster mom’s work on Saturdays though, and I am such a good sweet little boy.  All of the co-workers love to come visit me on their breaks.  If you think you are the right human for me, let me know!  I'd love to meet you and show you that the Brittany life is the BEST life!

History:
Ordo is one of our new International Rescue dogs.  He was found as a stray in Spain and was likely an abandoned hunting dog.  Ordo is neutered, current on vaccinations, microchipped, leishmania and heartworm negative, and on heartworm and flea/tick preventive.  If you are interested in Ordo, please submit an adoption application and mention Ordo-5667.  The adoption fee for international rescues is $450.

Oreo

(Tennessee)

Dog Story:
Bonjour, Salut to all my new American friends.  I have just arrived from Europe and am living with my American cousin whom I like very much.  As you can see, I am an extremely handsome Epagneul Breton.  For those of you not from France that is French Brittany.  Because I am black and white, I have been given the name “Oreo”.  I understand that in this country an Oreo is a sweet treat.  Well, I am a very sweet treat.  I’m told I’m a joy to be around.  But of course, you would expect less?  No, you would not.  Being young, I have a lot of energy.  Being young, I can collapse into sleep in mere seconds.  Aahh. don’t you wish you were young again?  Since I am so new to this country, I am not familiar with all of your customs so new places are a little scary.  But in the spirit of my ancestors I will boldly go where no Breton has gone before.  Oh sorry, too much Star Trek.  But I assure you that I will learn all that you need me to know.  Of course I assume that this learning will involve car rides because I have really come to like them.  We French are a very social group.  So if you would like to teach me English and take me for car rides, I’m here waiting.

History:
Oreo was found as a stray in Spain.  This beautiful boy is neutered, current on vaccinations, microchipped, leishmania and heartworm negative, and on heartworm and flea/tick preventive.  If you are interested in Oreo, please submit an adoption application and mention Oreo-5663.  The adoption fee for international rescues is $450.

Hank

(Virginia)

 

Dog Story:
Meet Hank.  Hank is a typical Brittany- his loves include adventure, his people, and the great outdoors. Hank is going on 6 yrs old and has been with his family all of his life including with his Britt sister.  If you have ever talked about active Brittanys, you might have heard the phrase “he needs a job”.  Hank is looking for employment.  He is not as laid back as his sister- not that he is wild, but has more of a sense of curiosity.  He currently has a large fenced area to spend most days in, which is great, but Hank needs more human companionship and direction to make the most of his adventurous personality. An active person, couple or family would be a great and fun match for Hank.  Just no feline companions, please.

Please submit an adoption application if you are interested in learning more about Hank

History:
Hank is currently residing with his family in Hume, Virginia.

Jackson

(Virginia)

Dog Story:
Are you searching for the exuberance of a young brittany? Do you want to provide a forever home to a senior brittany? If so, then Jackson is the boy for you! He has all the unbridled enthusiasm of a puppy wrapped up in a slightly graying face and 10 year old body.

Jackson has been an outdoor dog and never learned basic obedience or good manners. He can be a challenge but in a short time he has started to listen more attentively. We are working on "off" as he is a counter-surfer and "wait" as he tends to bolt through the door and he has made progress in both areas. He is well-socialized and loves people. He also is getting along with two females and a 16 year old male Britt. He has been challenged by the alpha female and immediately backed away. The former owner said he is ok with kids and cats. Jackson is not used to being on a leash and pulls hard so a harness is recommended for walks. He also seems very interested in the gate of the 4 foot chain link fence so a solid fence would be a better option for him.

Transitioning a dog to life in a house and sleeping in a crate requires patience. That combined with love is what Jackson needs most. Despite his sometimes rambunctious behavior, from the first night here he has displayed a willingness to please and that wide-eyed adoration of the human who scratches his ears that all fans of this breed know and love. We all deserve a 2nd chance. Jackson deserves a 2nd chance at being loved, cuddled, appreciated and to hear the words "good dog". Can you be the person that gives Jackson that chance??

Please submit an adoption application if you are interested in hearing more about Jackson.

History:
Jackson was surrendered by his family when there was nobody left to care for him. Jackson had been with the family all of his life, but was relegated to the outside yard with minimal attention. With that said, he is making up for all he missed in the first part of his life, and is looking for a home with people who will give him the attention, love and lots of petting he so deserves.

Bruno

(West Virginia)

Dog Story:
Hello Senor, Senora and Senorita, my name is Bruno and I come from Spain where they put me on a plane to fly many hours across the ocean.  Next I rode in many cars and after three days of travel, I landed in West Virginia. And you know it is "Almost Heaven".  You see, I was found in a garbage can in Spain; I was hungry; I was scared; I was lonely.  But when I arrived in "heaven", there was a bed for me to sleep in, plenty of food to eat, lots of long walks and more love than I thought possible.  Now you know why I think this is "almost heaven".  
I am a French Brittany, about 5 months old.  My foster mom tells me I am a special boy!  I love to play fetch (and I bring it back so you will throw it again).  Potty training is a work in progress; my foster mom says I am learning very fast.  I will sit for my food but I get excited when the treat bag is opened so sometimes I forget to sit for my treats, but I will learn.  My mom says I am a smart boy.  I sleep all night very quietly in my crate.  For that my mom tells me I am a good boy.  When I am not eating, sleeping, going potty or playing, I love to cuddle with my humans.  My mom tells me I am a very sweet boy.  I ride well in a car.  I am a little shy when you first meet me but warm up quickly.  Because I am a puppy, I still have lots to learn.  But if you want a special, smart, good and sweet boy, I am just waiting for you to give me my furever home.  And when you do, I will give you lots of puppy kisses!

History: 
Bruno was found in a trash can on the streets of Spain, so we do not know anything about him before he came to ABR.  He is now up to date on vaccinations, leishmania and heartworm negative, on HW and flea-tick preventative, and microchipped.  Due to his young age at 5 months old, Bruno has not yet been neutered; potential adopters must agree to have Bruno altered at the appropriate age, with a refundable spay/neuter deposit.  If you are interested in this wonderful little boy, please submit an adoption application and mention Bruno-5661.  The adoption fee for international rescues is $450.

JC

(West Virginia)


Dog Story:
Say Cheese!!! Hi friends, My name is JC (My foster mom calls me Jake.) I was picked up as a stray and no one came to claim me.

I'm a really sweet boy. I'll sit really pretty and come if you call and somebody in my past taught me some really good manners, because I know how to shake hands with you. The vet thinks I'm about 4 and I'm a pretty low key guy. I love a good walk, but I'm also ready to just hang out an chill with the resident 5 year old child. I'm a very patient boy and I'll lay right on the floor with her and let her play vet with me.

I actually have to visit the real vet a lot, because while I am mostly a healthy boy, I have heartworms. I'm just starting my treatment and will be with my foster family the rest of the summer while I undergo the expensive, long treatment that will help me get better so that I can finally get a furever family of my own.

If you can, will you consider being my Brittany Buddy. If you click on the banner above, you can donate to my medical care and help ABR get me all better and ready to adopt.

 

   

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.
