Oreo

(Alabama)


Dog Story:
Hola, helloooo...My name is Oreo and I am from dry, sunny Spain. Since I have been in this country, I have done many things and met many people. I have enjoyed almost everything. I have also met Harvey and Irma. I didn’t enjoy them. Hopefully, I will not be meeting Senorita Marie. Other then that things are going well for me. I know you are looking at my pictures and asking how is he a Brittany? He is black and white. And like the cookie I have a soft mushy center but I digress. You see, I am a French Brittany from Spain now living in Alabama. I am a little United Nations. I have learned many things. My English is getting better every day. I have learned sit and kennel and outside. And, of course, I come when I am called. I would not like to miss something fun or good to eat. I am very good at waiting patiently. I also like the car rides, I only wish Herself would let me help her drive. I am also learning to hunt a little green ball. Since I am a lover and not a hunter, I really don’t see the point of hunting the green balls. You can’t eat them and even though they squeak I do not think they are alive. I don’t think Herself really wants to eat them either since she keeps throwing them away but then asking me to go get them when she changes her mind. But we Spanish men like to please our women so I go and get it for her and she calls me a muy bueno boy. Her Spanish she not good. Truthfully I think that is all she knows. But I have learned that she thinks I am a very good boy who would be a wonderful hunter of little green balls. So if you have little green balls that you might like to eat, call me and I will find them for you. Your friend, Oreo

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.

Pau

(Florida)


Dog Story:
Hola!  Me llamo Pau and I came to Florida from Spain, where “Pau” means “little” in the Catalan language.  You could call me “little” in size since I only weigh around 30 pounds, but I am very big in personality!  I’m a joyous bundle of activity always ready to go with full-speed Britt energy.  If there is running, playing, small creatures to chase or any kind of adventure to be had, I want to be a part of it.  I am a handsome orange roan French Brittany with a wagging tail that’s always twirling around with me.  My foster mom says I’m the perfect running buddy plus lap dog, which sounds like a great combination for anyone who enjoys young Brittany pups!

At my foster home I’ve had so much fun keeping super busy every day.  We go running and hiking on nature trails to chase little critters and socializing at the dog park, but please watch me carefully because I have a bad habit of eating grass that gets me very sick!  I also love learning new tricks!  So far I’ve mastered lots of commands like sit, down, drop, wait, and place.  I love my crate and sleep tight in my cozy doggy den for night time and when mom is out.  I’m a little shy and timid meeting new people, especially little humans, but once I open up, I’ll never be able to get off your lap.  Little humans are confusing though, and I especially don’t like them too jumpy.  I love humans, don’t get me wrong!  We just need to grab a quick drink or a walk together for me to really get to know you!  I also get along with other doggo friends and have gone to work with foster mom at the veterinarian’s office.  I love to play tag, but I try to stay out of trouble when buddies are too ruff with me.  Danger is not my middle name, so I follow my foster mom around at all times.  I like to pretend to be her paw-dyguard and stand really close to her.  The only time I’m okay with not seeing her is bedtime when I can go into the crate to have some me-time.  I definitely need a home without cats, since I have a very high prey drive and get totally focused on chasing kitties and small critters. I have a cat roommate who I love to play with, but he doesn’t seem to like me very much.  I try to slide in underneath the couch really slowly next to him in order to woo him, but he still doesn’t accept me.  As long as I have zoomies in the house, I don’t think any cat would really like me.

Whenever I’m sitting patiently for my foster mom to give me food or open the door, she laughs at me because both of my lips get stuck underneath my teeth.  She says it looks like I’m smiling and that’s why it takes her longer to give me food, but I know it’s because she’s distracted by my cuteness.  Lately my foster mom has been grabbing my paw or pointing a finger at me saying bang.  I don’t understand what she’s doing but I like getting the treats afterwards.  Don’t worry though, I don’t go completely mutts!  I love cuddles and napping on the couch with the fam.  I adore attention and affection from people, but with my bouncy puppy energy will do best in a home with older children.  If you’re an active family ready for an exercise partner for workouts, taking snuggles and playing outdoors with me fur-ever, you might want to consider welcoming me to brighten up your home.

History:
Pau was rescued as a stray in Spain and arrived at his new foster home in Florida, full of happy smiles.  He is a total puppy in a petite package and will need an active home with a family ready to give lots of time and exercise to a young Brittany.  Pau is neutered, current on vaccinations, microchipped, leishmania and heartworm negative, and on heartworm and flea/tick preventive.  If you are interested in Pau, please submit an adoption application and mention Pau-5664.  The adoption fee for international rescues is $450.

Dog Story:

She has learned sit, lie down (sometimes) and wait. She will probably chase the resident cats if given a chance, so best there be no cats in her new home. Elie has a sweet, kind personality.

Oh, and I do love treats and I love when it’s feeding time!! I am a real sweet boy who needs some patience, guidance and lots of love.  If you would like to come meet Daisy and I please fill out the online adoption application and note Daisy and Duke in NC.

I LOVE to point birds! My brother (Duke) likes to point animals too but I have to say I am MUCH better at it than him! Just saying! I definitely need a fenced in back yard so I can pursue my passion….chasing all things that move. My brother says I am a “show off” because I like to jump 5 feet in the air to catch butterflies. I can’t help it! It’s so. much. fun. ! I actually think I would be AWESOME at agility! I bet I would love it because I am so smart & have a natural ability to do stunts. I am a very intelligent, sweet girl who needs some patience, guidance and lots of love.
 
Even though I have a need for speed, I also have a soft side. I love to snuggle in your lap & tuck my head under your arm. This makes me so happy! So please don’t mind if I jump up on your lap for a snuggle. So please hurry and fill out the online adoption application so you can come meet us soon!

Roxy

(North Carolina)


 Roxy is a 10 year old female who is extremely friendly.  She enjoys being outdoors watching birds and going for walks.  Roxy is laid back most of the time and needs a family who can give her the love and attention she deserves. Roxy can sit, lay and roll over on command. 

She is great with other animals including cats and would be happy in a home with a younger dog sibling to mentor.  A large fenced yard would be a bonus for her!  She loves children and has never shown aggressive behavior to anyone in the past. 

She has no issues with riding in a car but not with a full stomach she has gotten car sick before. She is completely house trained but has been known to eat food off the counter that was left unattended.   So if you would like to meet this sweet girl and perhaps take her home please fill out our online adoption application and note Miss Roxy! 

History – Roxy is an owner assisted placement, her owner feels she needs more time and attention. More than their busy schedules can allow.  She is spayed, up to date on shots, heartworm negative and microchipped.

Rosie

(North Carolina)

Dog Story:
Rosie and her companion Luigi are a very bonded pair and will be adopted together. According to her foster mom, Rosie is so, so charming and it is easy to fall in love with her. Rosie came into rescue Heartworm positive. Over the last few months she has completed her treatment and is ready to stretch her legs in the yard with Luigi and her family of kids and furry companions she is currently living with. Rosie is admittedly a counter surfer and will need some corrections to deter that. Both Luigi and Rosie are good car riders, so they will be ready to go on their next adventure to their forever home. Her foster home- kids, adults and furry ones alike will miss them dearly, but the foster home will be ready to help another Britt (or two) in need.

If you are interested in Rosie and her companion Luigi, please submit an adoption application .

History:
Rosie and Luigi came into foster care after their owner passed away. Fortunately, a family member was kind enough to take them in, contacted ABR, and held onto them until we were able to find a foster home who could take both of them.

He loves to hunt for whatever has dared to breach the fence and enter his domain. He is playful and will come when called. Luigi’s foster mom says that he is easy to train. Both Luigi and Rosie are good car riders, so they will be ready to go on their next adventure to their forever home. His foster home- kids, adults and furry ones alike will miss them dearly, but the foster home will be ready to help another Britt (or two) in need.

Rocky

(South Carolina)

Dog Story:
Hi, my name is Rocky and I’m searching for my forever home. You see, I’ve had a rough time lately. Somehow, I found myself out wandering the streets and got hit by a car. Luckily, I was ok, only a bit sore and stiff. A shelter picked me up but I couldn’t stay because there was no room. Then the best thing happened, ABR picked me up and I wound up in a great foster home!

Now, if I can just find my forever home, that would make me so happy. I am a good boy; well socialized and love all people and dogs! I like to sit on laps and cuddle. I even give hugs. I am perfectly happy to sit out in the yard enjoying the scenery and also inside on the couch!

My foster mom says I’m a counter surfer. Not sure what that means, but I just want to be in the middle of everything. I have to make up for lost time, and need lots of attention. I’m pretty good on a leash until I see a squirrel or a bird, then all bets are off.

Won’t you please give me a chance to be your best friend? I’m housebroken and up to date on shots. Just need to be neutered, so I will be ready for my new home just after Thanksgiving, so if you are interested please fill out our online adoption application and let's celebrate the holidays together!

History:
Rocky was picked up by animal control after being hit by a car. When his owner didn’t come to claim him they contacted ABR and he is ready for his second chance and a fresh start in his forever home!

Jonie is a little guy at 31 pounds.

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

Corazon

(Virginia)


Dog Story:
Hola! My name is Corazon (my heart in Spanish) and I flew all the way from Spain to capture YOUR heart. Just check out my irresistible nose. I have the most unique nose of all Brittany Spaniels in America. I want nothing more in life than to cuddle next to you when you are watching TV or sleeping in bed. My zoomies in the back yard are strong. I love running in circles tossing my stuffed toys around.

I have an extremely strong bond with my foster mom- my foster dad- I'm still warming up to him (males can be scary). When she leaves, I get worried and wait eagerly by the door for her to come back. I would do best with a fur sibling to help with my separation anxiety. Crates aren't for me. I’m also working on my house manners, after living on the street, I've learned to seize the opportunity- especially when it comes to my humans meals they leave on the table. My foster mom is working on exposing me to the world while on a leash, however the outside world is a scary place. I need a human who can love me and help build my confidence.

Who is going to be the lucky human to take me home and get all the wet doggie kisses?

History:
ABR rescued Corazon through our International program. These lucky dogs have had a rough life and have found good fortunes in the US through this program. Corazon has been in a foster home and is ready to settle into a lucky foster home. No Spanish required!

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.
